It all started with an inspiration from Pinterest and my indecision to decide which look I wanted to recreate. I never thought that my indecision would create such a fun look, and something I never considered doing: layering coats. We all have those fun fashion coats which are realistically not warm enough to wear during a frigid day, especially here in New York. So why not layer your favorite coats for a fun (and interesting) look.
I love it when the title of my blog perfectly flows and explains everything that I am wearing. From my “cami series” I promised that I would show a full head to toe look with this black cami & bralette from Free People… Continue reading “Black Velvet & Faux Leather + a Sweater”
Bringing this look back from last year it is definitely a jacket I like to wear during the month of February. This time around I went for an all black look underneath with a hint of layers. Continue reading “Pink Faux February”
After my most recent fail of trying to take detailed photo’s of my new cami’s, I figured it would be much smarter to move these shoots to indoors until its tolerable outside. I love layering outfits for a few reasons: you can get more than one look with each item, they can carry over into different seasons and its fun to put these looks together! This look had some major inspiration from Miamiamine… I wanted to recreate one of her looks but in my own way… Continue reading “Red Velvet Cami”
Focusing on accessories for today’s post. Normally I am not the type of girl who wears a ton of accessories. The simpler, the better in my opinion. Although this past fall/winter season I have really loved layering my accessories. When I got this Bauble Bar collection by Shay Mitchell it really opened up my eyes to a new way of dressing up my outfits. The smallest detail can make or break your outfit. Often I avoid wearing a ton of accessories because well I tend to break things or get caught on things since I am clumsy. Not a good look. So the less that I have to get tangled in it is usually for the better…
Today I saw an accessory post on Pinterest and fell in love with the detail. I love pulling from what I already have (no matter how old it may be) and putting the look together. The wrap around necklace was the most fun part as I wanted to use one of my favorite sparkling chokers to make a different layered look. This wrap around choker necklace has been worn a billion times by every basic girl on planet earth. But not me, nope. I insisted on creating a different look.. and I am so glad that I did. By layering the Catena choker necklace between the wrap around necklace it allowed it to pop even more and look like a completely different necklace. And that was from thinking outside of the box.
Still obsessing over the celestial jewelry, these layered necklaces made it so much easier to put this look together. The base of this look was not the wrap around choker, it was my arrow necklace. This was a gift from my parents and arrows have been extremely symbolic to me over the years…
This has been blasted all over every bit of social media possible, I KNOW. At the time in my life when I saw it I was wondering when all of these bad things happening were ever going to end. It seemed like time after time after time, something horrible or life changing was happening and I didn’t understand why. Reading this, it made so much more sense and gave me a sense of hope. That I wasn’t being pulled in the wrong direction, but pulled back further enough to launch into the right direction. And here I am. Doing something I absolutely love, my life is changing for the absolute better, anything negative or pulling me down has been eliminated and I am focusing on only the good while forcing positivity in every which way. Now that was extremely off topic, but a part of me I wanted to share with you all.
Baaaaccckkk to the post. I based this look all around my arrow necklace, although the arrow and the moon don’t necessarily go together it didn’t matter to me much since all of the items I was using was gold. The amount of gold accessories I own is ridiculous, even writing this I am reminded that I need to invest in some other silver pieces for my collection for more of a variety. Another of my favorite necklaces is the star burst lariat necklace from Dynamite. Such a great find from that store and I really love incorporating it into all of my outfits. It also gave a great focal point to the rest of my accessories as it laid between the end pieces of the wrap choker necklace. Wearing it with a simple white tank and my trusty faux leather biker jacket it brought life to a simple outfit!
