Girl On Fire

IMG_4986 A lot of the street style I've been admiring as of late has been from European cities and New York. These styles are, not surprisingly, very focused on neutrals. This influence as well as my transition into office attire has me wearing a lot more neutral outfits than usual. I'm not complaining, but for the summer season I think color is necessary. On this day I pulled out my DIY clutch that adds a statement to my outfit, but still stays professional with its hardware detailing.

After wearing this thrifted maxi skirt once before, I was torn between chopping off the interior lining, or just leaving it be. Well, I spotted my fabric scissors one day and that skirt had a new fate. I am so glad I cut it! I love that the lace detail shows now, adding so much more depth to my outfit.

"Paradise City"

IMG_2313 A few posts ago I talked about layering, and I found that I am playing with it again today! I wore this outfit yesterday, and layered this very oversized tee over a feminine lace skirt. This layering was perfect for me because this skirt tends to ride up in the front meaning I am constantly pulling it down. The longer shirt keeps it down so I am more worry free, and I also like how it looks like the lace is coming from the tee!

OOTD_97 Final Review

DSC_1172 Today was my final review for studio. I can't believe how fast this quarter has gone, but I think it's because I really enjoyed what I was learning and working on all quarter. I'm going to share more about my project this week, but for now, this is the outfit I wore!

I am really liking how this rose gold necklace adds something extra to an all black outfit. I pulled out my leather moto jacket, but layered a linen moto underneath so I would still have the look even if I got warm and took off my jacket. A little double layering action!
