Rugged Florals

IMG_3391 I thrifted this amazing skirt at the Goodwill Outlet the other day. At first I thought it was too granny and didn't see the potential in it. However, I chopped it into a hi-low style, and the lightweight material kept me so cool all day! I paired it with a simple black tank that wouldn't compete too much with the print, and a studded leather vest to add a touch of interest.

Today was super exciting because I was able to leave the house for the first time after my surgery, and I bought a new lens for my camera! Unfortunately I had my camera on the wrong setting so the images are a little fuzzy, but I'll have that issue fixed tomorrow!

Amoeba My Heart

IMG_2225 I can't get enough of these heart sunnies lately. I've had them since high school but it hasn't been until recently that they've been on my face whenever the sun is shining. Since they are quite playful, I thought why not pair them with other fun pieces as well? I chose my DIY jacket and twirly skater skirt. I think my favorite patch on this jacket has to be the Amoeba one because it reminds me of all the fun trips I've had there with friends. Finally, I like to keep the look not so serious so I finished it off with my trusty Vans. I have always, and will forever, be a Vans girl!

OOTD_87 "Rude Mood"

DSC_0846 I've recently been introduced to Stevie Ray Vaughan by Jake and after listening to him on vinyl together and seeing his style, my desire for a concho style hat increased. So when I found out Forever 21 had this spiked version for sale, I decided I needed to head over there and add this piece to my wardrobe. I love styling this hat with a pair of ankle boots, and this this almost western style shirt that is modernized with the leather detailing. Finally, I added in this floral skirt to girl up the look.

So of course because he is the inspiration, the track for today's outfit is "Rude Mood" by Stevie Ray Vaughan. Listen along here while you view to get the whole vibe!

Oh I forgot to mention that I went dark with my hair last night! It's temporary again but I'm really liking it.

OOTD_86: Studio Review

DSC_0762 Today was my mid-review for studio, so I always like to wear a dress or skirt, and wear something that is professional but still exciting. This dress is a go to in my closet because it's a neutral but it still bold and graphic. The cut of it really suits being paired with an oversized blazer like this one. You may remember this outfit a while back as well where I styled this dress for a school day. Finally, it's great to add a decisive pop of color to your outfit when making a presentation, so I finished off my look with this bright statement necklace I made a while back. This was a piece of a small "collection" my friend Ariana and I worked on a while back, which I plan to share more on later. This quarter we have been experimenting with other students and our professor with digitally fabricated jewelry which is really exciting!

Don't forget you can always quickly change up your look with your hair! I tried a middle part today because I feel like my hair is finally long enough, and I really liked how it streamlined my look.
