"Somebody"

IMG_0992 I slept in a little today, so I was aiming for casual comfort. I haven't worn my geeky sweater in a while, and I figured that since school is starting to pick up again it was a good time to wear it. Normally I wouldn't pair a sweater in a soft blue color with a light washed denim, but since I have been liking the on-trend monochromatic look, I went with it.

For today's outfit track I wanted to share a band with you called Jukebox the Ghost. Jake introduced me to them a while back and since burning the CD I have really enjoyed the album. Listen along below to "Somebody" while you view--it's so catchy!

My roommates were awesome and pulled out a ladder from our side yard recently, so we've been having fun hanging out up there and enjoying the view, both sunsets and stargazing! I've been taking my blog photos up there lately and I have to say its so pretty and relaxing to go up there after I get home from class!

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!

MONTHLY FAVORITES_December

With the month of December coming to an end, I went into 2013 thinking about a few of my favorite things. This month's favorites are all across the board, from things I got for Christmas (and love) to things I'm lusting over to things I am never realistically going to buy, but like to pretend I own on Polyvore. December Favorites

beauty

1_the infamous beauty blender_ i recently got my knock-off version at TJ Maxx for 6 bucks so check that out if you can. i completely reccomend this beauty tool for blending your foundation, it makes my skin look airbrushed and i don't know how i lived without it! 2_Goody Quikstyle hairbrush_i found this in my Christmas stocking and in my opinion, it really does work! this brush is designed to help your hair dry quicker while you style it with the use of the sponge within the bristles and the vented sides. you can find this product at Walgreens or Target 3_eos Smooth Lipbalm Sphere_also in my stocking, this yummy strawberry sorbet chapstick that hasn't left my side since Christmas morning.

jewelry

1_Maison Margiela for H&M Bracelet_yeah...still kicking myself for not getting my hands on one of these minimalist pieces while they were still in store 2_knuckle ring_my friend Morgan had been a fan of this style of ring for a while now, and I got one for Christmas! it's a great addition to my ring collection. you can see the one I've been wearing by bar III from Macy's in this outfit post. I also like this one from Macy's. 3_state necklace_see my DIY plexiglass Arizona necklace in this outfit post and this one too that I've been wearing non-stop ever since I made it. this is a really cool way to show your hometown pride, especially if you live away from home.

clothing

1_velvet leggings_i'm not sure if its the fact that i was in a hotter climate this month or the relaxation factor that comes with the holidays, but i really was just not in the mood to wear real pants. therefore, i was very grateful to receive an assortment of leggings for gifts, and like these velvet ones I got by HUE from Dillard's. 2_hello red pullover_it's no secret that i'm a sucker for a good crewneck, and this clever one by Hello Merch is one of my current favorites on my wish list. this company is run by one of the former members of my favorite band, The Format, making this sweatshirt even that much cooler. 3_geek sweater_another graphic sweater, i recently got this one at PacSun by the brand Kirra. i've been wearing it a lot lately, but it has yet to make an appearance on the blog. stay tuned for that!

shoes

1_hologram heels_these pumps by Stella McCartney are very on trend. the hologram is the perfect amount futuristic and also attracts my 6-year-old spirit that still loves rainbows and Lisa Frank anything. 2_Leather Sk8-Hi Platform_i covet a new signature pair of Vans every year, and I want these to be on my feet next. similar to the classic Sk8-Hi's, this shoe gets a facelift with a higher platform and leather. i may with go with the classics for the practicality of skateboarding and daily wear, but i like these oh so much. 3_Tardy's_these platform lace up boots by Jeffrey Campbell have been on every fashion bloggers feet lately and I wish I could say the same myself!
