Prague Punk

IMG_9092 It's no secret that I love this tee, and it worked as a good layering piece during our travel week. On this day in Prague, we walked across the Charles Bridge to check out the John Lennon wall. From what I know it doesn't have too much historical significance, but there are layers and layers of paint that have been built up since the 1980's. While we checked out all of the art and messages people had left behind, we noticed a lot of punk references, so I had to snap some pictures since I was rocking my Zara shirt. So much punk in Prague!

As you can tell by how much I've been wearing it lately, I'm pretty obsessed with this cardigan I found at Vero Moda. I was never really a cardigan person in the past, but since warmth has become more of a necessity lately, I love that it keeps me cozy but still shows off any top I pair with it! It's fun how traveling + moving around can change your style...I think that actually might be my favorite thing about fashion! Thanks for stopping by today, xx. Paige

Investment Pieces // Copenhagen

investment pieces title Lately my shopping mantra has been "quality over quantity." Granted, this isn't a groundbreaking idea, but for me it is a new way of thinking. As a pro-bargain hunter, I've been known to buy something that I like a decent amount, if I can get it for a killer deal. Don't get me wrong, I love my wardrobe, but it's left me with an overcrowded closet. Lately I've been working on only acquiring pieces that I either love or are vintage treasures. The result so far has been money saved, an organized closet, and some wardrobe staples that I'm very excited to wear.

My first stop was American Apparel. This is definitely a place I have always just window shopped in, so I was excited to finally pick some things up.

New in: The Disco Pant, a street style favorite. The sheen, the cut, what's not to love? I even remember my best friend and I popping in to just try these on so we could see how they feel. Now that I own them, I am sooo hooked. Also a plus, I think they will keep me warm while abroad!

Next up: The Easy Jean. Another piece that has been raved about by women everywhere. I didn't think a pair of jeans could be that much better than any I had worn before, but boy was I wrong. The 2% elastane gives these the perfect amount of stretch. They are both comfortable and fitted, and will be a good change of pace from my typical black denim.

I also paid a visit to Zara online. (The Arizona location is opening soon!) I saw this bag $60 less than the original price, and fell in love with the real leather black and white minimalism. I thought it would be a good bag to throw over my shoulder for a day of class, and could hold my books + laptop while riding my bike to class. However, I was a little disappointed to open the package and realize it didn't have much structure to it. If you're looking for a slouchy tote, I definitely recommend this baby, but it just wasn't the perfect choice for me. I'll have to keep my eye out for another black + white carry-all!

That's the extent of my purchases to date, but I'll keep you updated with new finds. Thanks for reading! x. Paige

"Satisfaction"

IMG_0762 Today was a lazy day for me spent mostly at home, which I reflected in this casual outfit. I officially only have 1 hour of class on Thursdays, which is pretty unheard of for an architecture major, so I am enjoying it. I paired 2 prints together today, but since the lip print is more of a graphic print and the flannel is more of a pattern, I thought they worked well together.

The lips on this top reminded me of the Rolling Stones, so today I chose their song "Satisfaction" as the outfit track. Listen below while you view!

After taking these photos my roommates and I walked down to farmer's market from our house and I threw on a leather jacket for some added warmth and style!

HAUL_Spring Break Chicago Haul Video

Screen Shot 2013-04-09 at 8.49.05 PM Hi guys! So sorry for my lack of posts this week! I was on an amazing trip in Chicago with my architecture studio and we were just so busy that I decided to leave my computer at home and enjoy all of our time there. Now that I'm back, I filmed this fun haul video for you guys and am also working on a big vlog video from the trip and a couple architecture posts. Until then, I hope you enjoy this video and my latest finds!

I tried my best to find these pieces on line in case you are interested in picking them up for yourself! Unfortunately I couldn't find some of the items online (especially because H&M doesn't have an online store) but if you get more extensive with your Google skillz, I bet you could find some great things!
