Lucky Mag & Fossil // Lucky Peach

November 20, 2013

Autumn just doesn’t feel right without a little grunge influence thrown in. It brings back that feeling of back-to-school camaraderie and distinguished teenage rebellion. And that’s when the plaid magically appears around my waist. And every color imaginable in the form of ribbed beanies magically appear on my head. I wanted a way to toughen up these pretty and preppy Fossil accessories in a way that would have made Kurt Cobain proud and maybe dedicate a song to me. How sweet is the tone of this coral-peach messenger bag? A pretty springtime hue that works during all seasons as a little color palette refresher, especially against darker, grungier hues. 
As for the earrings, I really can’t stop wearing them. To me, earrings are quite similar to lingerie. Not everyone can see them, since my hair is always down, but it’s nice to know that they are there. These little Fossil floral studs are kind of like my little secret. Hush hush.
What this outfit really comes down to is color play, which is basically my favorite thing about getting dressed each day. If you really think about it, there’s a lot of emotion that goes along with the colors you decide to put on each day. I’m drawn to all colors for so many different reasons. Memories. An emotional stir. Character role playing. Flashes of inspiration that has to do with a certain color flashing through my head is usually enough to make me where it in different ways for an entire week. I can be having the worst day ever, but throwing on this peach little satchel could be one thing that keeps me from going overboard at the end of the day. Every little details makes a difference.
Thank you to Lucky Magazine for having me a part of this Fossil collaboration 🙂

If I Were A Unicorn

November 18, 2013

Forever 21 sweater, Kenneth Cole wool skirt, Natalie & Dylana Suarez x Modern Vice Chloe boots, A Tiny Touch necklace

I STILL JUST WANT TO BE A GYPSY WANDERER FAIRY UNICORN PRINCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just kidding. Wait, not really. Let’s just say that I tend to gravitate towards all that make the world appear more Lisa Frank folder-ish. This Forever 21 sweater does the trick. I DIY cropped it so that I could rock it with all my high-waisted things. Belly buttons are officially my new favorite winter accessory. Don’t judge. Aaaaaand, I haven’t worn ripped tights out in public since like two years ago, but sometimes you just have to embrace these sort of adolescent things. Oooooor just embrace the fact that I have yet to officially call myself a real grown up person. Tsk. Tsk. Super excited this week because I’m have California to look forward to at the end of the week. Jumping on a plane with my sister Friday evening to go home for some chill family time and work (hush hush for now!!!). I wish I had more than just 4 days to spend back home, but I feel super lucky that I even got this last minute opportunity to head back. Going to try to work in all my favorite Cali things during the short time I’m there (Venice beach bike rides, Santa Monica Promenade strolling, thrift shopping!!!!). It will all be worth the red eye flight that I will be taking on my return. I am a pro red eye flyer, just FYI. Gotta make the most of my time.

Currently, my legs still feel like jelly from walking the Williamsburg Bridge and just about everywhere else this past Saturday, on top of bike riding our way around the Upper West Side. The fact that the L train was down all weekend was just a better excuse to explore the city by foot a whole lot more. 


Weekend Warrior

November 15, 2013

Nasty Gal Shoe Cult boots, Wildfox sweater, RD Style coat, vintage scarf and jeans, Richer Poorer socks, Rebecca Minkoff bag

Ready for the weekend again. By the time Friday rolls around, I’m always sure to stress the point that it was one heck of a week. But really I am never exaggerating. Working a full-time job, a blog, a social life, dates, gym time and maybe some chill time every once in a while is a lot of hard work! Sometimes I don’t even realize until I look back on what I’ve done. It’s been like this since the day I moved to the city mid-July. And now it’s nearing the end of November! It’s crazy! Things really are revving up and getting busier than normal, but I have some exciting things up my sleeve that I can’t wait to share with you all 🙂 It makes all the no sleep worth it! And now, here’s to another weekend full of warrior looks and adventure 🙂
