"Artist Appreciation"

Photo May 01, 8 25 22 PM I've been eyeing and laughing over this shirt for at least six months now. I first learned about the artist through Instagram (seriously where I find out about anything cool) and finally took the plunge and bought it with some commission money from a recent art piece. In my opinion no one is more destined to be a closet metalhead than Ron Swanson, and judging by the smirks I got from passerby's at school today, I think many would agree. Confused? Watch Parks and Recreation. He had me at "meat tornado."

During a study break last night I also made this headband from some extra tshirt material! It adds some extra excitement to a pretty basic outfit. I was hooked and made another for myself and one for my roommate. I can't wait to show you the others in future posts!

OOTD_97 Final Review

DSC_1172 Today was my final review for studio. I can't believe how fast this quarter has gone, but I think it's because I really enjoyed what I was learning and working on all quarter. I'm going to share more about my project this week, but for now, this is the outfit I wore!

I am really liking how this rose gold necklace adds something extra to an all black outfit. I pulled out my leather moto jacket, but layered a linen moto underneath so I would still have the look even if I got warm and took off my jacket. A little double layering action!

OOTD_93 + Closet Tour Video!

DSC_1013 I'm not sure what it is with me and tropical prints lately...maybe because I'm anxiously awaiting spring break? Whatever it is, I'm looking like a fashionable tourist today and I love it. You may remember these leggings from my spring haul video and I was excited about the cold weather (for once) so that I could pull these out. It was hard for me to decide what to pair them with, but I finally decided that a plain button down with a statement necklace was the perfect choice.
