OOTD 83: "7 Minutes in Heaven"

DSC_0693 Today's outfit is full of my favorite pieces: skulls, a DIY tee, denim, leggings, and Vans. Yep, perfect combination. This outfit risks looking very casual, almost like a painting day or something, but adding interest with some textured leggings and a cool acid wash to your shirt can be all the difference you need to spice up the look.

Today's outfit title comes from the Fall Out Boy song "7 Minutes in Heaven." Listen along here while you view! Who else is excited that they're making a comeback? And what did you think of their new song?

I'm on the hunt for more fun leggings like the ones i'm wearing to replace my old black ones that are falling apart. I'm loving these. Have you seen any lately that you love?

OOTD_82: "Art Show"

DSC_0660 today was chilly and rainy so i layered up with my favorite leather jacket/hoodie combo. since i wore an oversized tee, i added a feminine touch with my silver toms. this is a pretty staple look for me, and although its casual, its very true to my personal style.

about the deck i'm holding, this was the most recent skateboard painting i was working on, and i actually made the deck myself in a class at school as well. i had the deck around this morning because i was walking it down to my local skate shop for an art show i was in for this board! i was able to bring this coffin deck as well, to showcase my other art. it was a really fun show, and it was awesome to see all of the other work. i included some images of the show below!

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!

OOTD_78: "Look What Happened"

DSC_0804 I recently made a purchase from the online store By Samii Ryan, and this amazing head chain came free with my order! I love the piece but I was hesitant to style it because it is not my typical look. However, I realized that I should get inspired and decided to pair it with my favorite aztec flannel from UO. I incorporated some edgy elements to keep it touch with my personal style by layering over my embroidered skull shirt and throwing on my studded combat boots. I ended up loving this outfit and the head chain and think it would be great for a road trip or day of exploring outdoors.

The track for today's outfit is "Look What Happened" by Less Than Jake. Like this outfit, this song is still my style, but a little different than the usual. Listen along below while you view!
