OOTD_65: "Paradise"

DSC_0172 So today is the day I am en route back to California. As you're reading this, I'm probably on the plane wearing a flannel and leggings--not this outfit. However, I got these leggings for Christmas and was dying to style them right away. For school days I plan to wear them casually, but today I paired them with this spiked cutout dress I found at TJ Maxx. I thought these pieces went together well because the dress is a little on the short side and also doesn't compete with the leggings too much. Finally, how amazing is the spiked clutch? I got it as a gift from my mom, she knows me so well!

The track for today's outfit is "Paradise" by Coldplay. Soemthing about the intro and these leggings seemed to go together for me. Listen along here while you view!

I've had a great break being at home for a month, and am going to be a little homesick when I get back to school. However, I'm looking forward to layering pieces for the colder weather and all the fun plans I have for the next quarter with my friends and school!

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!
