Blazer: Target. Sweater: H&M. Shorts and Jewelry: Forever 21. Heels: Aldo. Bag: Express.

Today I wore my new floral blazer, styled with a deep violet cable-knit sweater and matching pumps. Since the weather was sunny and warm, I wore white shorts for a summery feel. I initially had trouble deciding what accessories to style with this look. First I tried gold, then pearls, then finally figured that silver would best fit the cool tones in the outfit and give an overall sleek, modern style. I recently bought the choker necklace, which was on my wishlist all season. I love it! To finish, I added a simple white tote with silver hardware. Have a great week everyone!

Dress and Blouse (under): Charlotte Russe. Blazer: vintage. Flats: Steve Madden. Backpack: Amerileather.

Today I channeled my girly side with this feminine but collegiate look. I love the contrast of girly bows and ruffles with traditionally male pieces: a wool blazer, gold watch, and leather backpack. Let me know what you think!

Vest: H&M. Sweater: Express. Top (under) and Pants: Target. Heels: Charlotte Russe.

First off, sorry for my extended absence. I’ve been stressed out more often than not the past few weeks, and am currently considering big changes in my college experience and future career. This outfit represents my style well–trendy, with a pattern and a mix of colors. After a trip to New York, which included a shopping excursion, I’m back and ready to style more spring looks. Thanks for sticking with me.

More soon,
Laura

Jacket: JouJou. Sweater and Tights: Express. T-Shirt: Urban Outfitters. Skirt: Forever 21. Booties: Chinese Laundry. Scarf: unknown. Bag: H&M. Socks: American Eagle.

In high school I was all about florals, pastels, and everything girly. Since then, I’ve grown to appreciate edgy pieces as well as more sophisticated palettes and silhouettes. However, I like to add a bit of femininity to my outfits every once in a while, and what better way to do so than with a cropped tee featuring a magnificent swan with lavender plumage? I love the contrast of the leather moto jacket and dark palette with the swan tee, purple metallic skirt and lavender silk scarf. It’s like high school again…only a bit more grown up.

Thoughts? Please share!

Colorful Knits

IMG_1505 IMG_1485 IMG_1491 IMG_1514 IMG_1518

Coat: Forever 21; Sweater, Tights, and Belt: Express; Skirt: Urban Outfitters; Booties: Chinese Laundry; Gloves: H&M; Hat and Scarf: Old Navy

Today I decided to keep it cozy with all knits! To counteract this cold and dreary day, I wore jewel tone accessories. I tend to be very matchy-matchy in my outfits, but perhaps this blog is bringing out a more daring side of me. Nonetheless, this look is warm and comfortable, and in my opinion, pretty damn chic too. 🙂
