OOTD_80: "Breaking & Entering"

DSC_0586 i recently put my christmas money to use, and decided to style all 3 of my purchases into one outfit! i was in a black and white mood and picked up this colorblocked moto jacket (for 25 bucks!) from the Nasty Gal sale, and paired it with my new Vans Sk8 Hi's. i'd been eyeing these shoes for a few months and knew they'd be a great addition to my Vans collection. i almost opted for the platform version, but decided to get a pair that i could also skate in. i love how they add a classic skate style to my looks and are a little more dramatic than ones i've purchased in the past

with an all black and white look, i love the pop of color that my new ear cuff adds to my look. i am crushing hard on everything that is sold on By Samii Ryan and love the element of interest mine adds to my look!

the styling for this outfit kinda reminds me of Jenna McDougall of Tonight Alive. therefore, the track for today's outfit is "Breaking & Entering" by the band. if you don't know about them, listen below!

if you remember my past posts, i featured this skirt and showed 4 different ways to style it (if not, find it here) well, i found a 5th way to wear it! i paired it with this awesome Metallica tank top and black and gold accessories for a day of Friday class, enjoy!

sincerely, girl who actually listens to the bands on her shirts.

hi everyone! today i kept my outfit low-key but still stylish because i was headed to the beach and pumpkin farm with my parents. i wouldn't normally wear my rainbows with a nice outfit, but i think that the braided detail and brown leather was just what this look needed.

this gold forearm bangle that im wearing is actually an embroidery supply from the craft store that was only 59 cents!

this necklace used to have 3 triangles stacked but 2 broke off--i like it better this way anyway!

finally, i'd like to encourage that you dig around in your closet and find some pieces that you haven't worn in a while and give them new life. sometimes if you keep some items in your closet long enough, they will come back into style again. the brown leather purse and khaki green jacket i'm wearing were really inexpensive items i've had for years, but never wore much when i first got them. now, i wear them all of the time and am so glad that i hung onto them!
