OOTD_72 "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

DSC_0529 Let's get right to the point, as you can tell, I dyed my hair last night! I was planning on going more in the direction of dark brown, but I saw the auburn on the box and decided to go for it. I really like how it looks. Also, I'm not big into the whole permanent dye thing, so I used Clairol Natural Instincts, and can change it in a month or so--or keep it if I like it!

The new hair inspired me to just go all out grunge today from the classic 90's flannel-tied-around-waist look and even a choker necklace. If you want to try a grunge look, take it one step further with a pair of Doc Martens. I would have thrown mine on, but its pretty warm here today (finally!) so I stuck with my favorite combat boots instead.

In pure 90's fashion, the track for today's outfit is "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana. Listen along below while you view!

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!
