OOTD 74

DSC_0551 Today I wanted to show how I transitioned the same dress from day to night, but when both looks are very casual and involve a lot of basics. The first outfit is what I wore to walk downtown to my favorite coffee shop and study, and the second shows how I added some extra layers for going to studio later in the night.

Although I wore a lot of red in my past two outfit posts, I am finding that I am more drawn to wearing neutrals now that my hair is a bolder color. I really like how the color looks against denim and black. I'll have to experiment with neutrals more in the next few weeks!

Since it was dark while I wanted to shoot this, I ended up in my room. However, I don't mind this because I like showing aspects of my space and one of the latest painting I've been working on!

For today's post I wanted to show how I transitioned from day to night on my Saturday--from coffee shop, to birthday party!

I also love these looks because the main pieces were vintage. How amazing is this black velvet dress? I realized I weirdly didn't have an LBD in my closet so I picked up this 80's vintage one from one of my favorite local stores, Retrofit Vintage. I love this store because it's basically like having a selection of the greatest Goodwill finds ever and also consigned pieces like Jeffrey Campbell Litas--I basically want everything in the store. If you're local be sure to check out this great shop or check out their Facebook page, here!

OOTD_35_Day to Night

today was yet another extremely hot day in California, so i was able to pair my new Iron Maiden tank (that I snagged for 99 cents on eBay) with this tan skirt I picked up at Forever 21. I'm loving the faux leather detail this skirt has on the waistband, and was so excited to see that two of my favorite YouTubers The Fashion Citizen and Clothes Encounters also are wearing this skirt for fall!

i also wanted to show you how to style this outfit for night when it gets cooler, just swap out your shoes for some heels and throw on a staple leather jacket!
