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!

i changed my shirt and shoes before the show a little to add some more color and polish--but you get the idea!

DSC_1432 First of all, I hope everyone had a merry Christmas! Today I decided to be festive for the holiday and pull out my red and green, but still do it in a chic way! I paired my red blazer with this very sparkly necklace with green rose detail. I wore them with basics, and the black jeggings were one of my Christmas gifts today--I love them! I finally threw my phone in this red clutch before I left. I think the red blazer and clutch are a lot together, but for the holidays I figured why not?

Today's outfit soundtrack? "Sleigh Ride" by fun. Listen here.

DSC_1022 I'm finally back with a new outfit post, and even better, I am home in Arizona (I took the above photo in my backyard)! I'm loving how this outfit came together. I sometimes find it hard to style this denim vest because of the short crop, but pairing it with this long tunic was the perfect solution. After figuring out the silhouette, I wanted to add some polish so I accessorized with my sparkly Toms and some shiny details with my statement ring and the detailing on my clutch. These outfit can also be easily transformed for cooler weather by throwing a neutral colored hoodie under the vest!

On top of loving this outfit, I'm also proud about how inexpensive all of the pieces are! I encourage you to go thrifting and also to hold back on purchases sometimes until you can find a killer sale. Sometimes you'll get really lucky like I did with these Toms--they would normally retail for $54 dollars, but I found this pair at my local consignment store and paid for them with the credit I received from donating my old clothes!

Thanks for reading, and happy shopping!
