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!

Jacket: Macy’s. Top and Bag: H&M. Pants and Jewelry: Forever 21. Wedges: DSW.

Hooray for spring trends! Graphic stripes, checks, and diamonds were all over the runways–and my favorite bloggers!–and when I saw these awesome striped pants a few weeks ago I snatched them up right away. Although this graphic pattern makes the biggest statement with other black and white pieces, I couldn’t resist pairing it with a bright neon orange top. I can’t help it–I love color! Especially on days like today, which was warm and sunny for the first time in weeks. More spring looks soon!

Tank: H&M. Shirt: thrifted. Jacket (under): PacSun. Leather jacket: TJ Maxx. Jeans: Charlotte Russe. Boots: Spring. Jewelry: Forever 21.

After a week of studying hard and being a good student, I was ready to break out the badass as a celebratory start to spring break. The skeleton tank, what I like to call my “grave-stomping” boots, and of course, a leather jacket, give this look just enough edge. The coffee and cigarette only heighten the punky I-don’t-care vibe. (Although, I will note I’m not a smoker!) Lastly, the playground seemed to be a great juxtaposition–child play plus teenage delinquency. Thoughts?

Jacket and Scarf: TJ Maxx. Sweater: Gap. Pants: H&M. Loafers and Backpack: Urban Outfitters. Beanie and Jewelry: Forever 21.

Today I ran some errands and went shopping. It was quite windy, so instead of trying to tame my hair I just threw a beanie on and called it a day. If you’re familiar with GW, you’ll find A LOT of preppy kids around campus. Thing is, I tend to lean in the opposite direction. However, I found a happy medium with this preppy meets urban look. What do you think?

Thanks for checking out my post!

Tribal on Edge

IMG_1717 IMG_1713 IMG_1726 IMG_1756 IMG_1751 IMG_1746 IMG_1728 IMG_1760 IMG_1750 IMG_1761

Leather jacket and scarf: TJ Maxx. Blazer, Pants, Belt and Jewelry: Forever 21. Top: thrifted. Boots: Gojane.com. Bag: Urban Outfitters.

Today I styled my outfit around my new, tribal print boots from Go Jane. I started with a black base, and added a top with tribal details. The red and teal colors of my blazer, socks and scarf match colors in the boots, and add some brightness to an otherwise dark, edgy look. To play up the edgy-ness, I added one of my favorite leather jackets, a studded belt and silver jewelry. I think it’s a rather unexpected combination, but I like how it turned out! Let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lavender Swan

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┬áfemininity┬áto 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!
