Millennial Pink

DSC_7558DSC_7597DSC_7581DSC_7650DSC_7653DSC_7673DSC_7679

I have to admit I didn’t realize my love for pink (that developed over the last year) was linked to my being a millennial. Not until a barrage of editorial articles written by people of the previous generation did I realize they were noticing and questioning it. To be honest, yeah I do love wearing this color. I’ve been wearing this sweater in particular non-stop since picking it up in the Oxford Circus Topshop and will probably continue to wear it until the mornings and evenings stop being so darn cold.

As a group, we millennials are a pretty anxious bunch. In fact, we’re the most anxious of them all. For some odd reason I find the Millennial pink palette rather calming, and perhaps others of my set do as well. Maybe that’s why we’ve all attached ourselves to it: we’re all just trying to radiate some bits of calm in the form of pink clothing. Works for me, anyway.

Pop of Color | What have I been up to?

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all enjoyed waking up after staying up until midnight to see La La Land win everything (except best picture). I’ve been working on another project these last two weeks, but I’m glad to be back and posting for you all. After the insane spring weather we’ve been having, I’m really pumped for spring. That’s why I added this pop of color to my last “winter” outfit for this season. I’m really digging the wide sleeves on this sweater and the fine knit makes it super comfortable. AND I’m definitely going to carry on wearing fringe jeans into spring, they are so fun and really chic. I snagged these boots in a really great Topshop sale and I would like to thank whoever shouted “YOUR SHOES ARE LIT” from their balcony this weekend.

I mentioned earlier that I’d had another project going on and I wanted to tell you all about it! I started a youtube channel! I really wanted to start sharing more content with you all, and I needed another medium for it. This will still be my main area for fashion, but I’m going to be covering beauty, lifestyle and other things on youtube. You can find me here (and you should subscribe!).

Happy Labor Day, everyone! We’re officially saying goodbye to summer (even though it doesn’t end technically until September 22nd) and moving into fall. The mornings here at UMass are getting chillier and it’s oh-so nice. Even though I know that by the time I step foot in a classroom tomorrow it will be in the nineties and I’ll be melting, but that’s what all the leftover beachwear is for, right?

Today I’ve got on a gorgeous dress from Forever 21 and I paired it with white sneakers to dress it down and make it everyday-appropriate. If I want to make it an evening or event dress, I could simply swap out the sneaks for black heels and off I go.

Put a Blazer On It

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s the last Monday of August and I can’t believe how the summer has flown by. This time next week I’ll be back at school. This Last Week of Summer outfit was a fun one because it featured a lot of important pieces for fall as well as a classic staple piece: the blazer. While today is another feature of my personal cotton shorts trend, I styled today’s outfit with the ever-popular off-the-shoulder tee. This one is quite simple and I think it’s a great shirt to have on hand when you’re looking to spice up an outfit. They also compliment chokers really well, like the velvet bow I’ve got on today. As for the blazer, while it is still quite hot out, it is a very important thing to have in your closet, whether black or navy, cropped or boyfriend, find time to choose one that you feel comfortable throwing on as much as a sweatshirt. They do so much for an outfit, even making jeans and a t-shirt look clean-cut and thought-out. They’re not just for interviews and model UN’s, I assure you.

Summer Staples

DSC_8466DSC_8481DSC_8492DSC_8512DSC_8526

Happy Monday! I know it’s a bit late, but my flight from Bologna was delayed over an hour and I got back to Paris much later than expected. Hopefully that blog post will be up next week! Since I’ll chat about all that fun next week, let’s get right to it: this outfit. This look is made up entirely of summer staples I’ll have with me wherever I go this summer. The denim skirt has been around again for over a year now and I can tell you it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. From mini to midi, it’s a great and versatile piece, especially when paired with a nineties-style tank such as this. Mules are also an amazing footwear piece to have and they come in tons of different styles. I find them a lot more easy to work with (and walk in) than other heeled shoes.

Hi, everyone! So I spent this weekend in London, which was lovely. I revisited the British Museum with my boyfriend Alex and got to see much more of it than the first time I went over the summer. There was a little suggested route in the map that I got and it was well worth following! It was almost done like a scavenger hunt, which made it a lot of fun trying to find everything. If you guys follow my Snapchat (@kiggins800) or Instagram you can see even more posts about my adventures.

Anyway, as it is in Paris most of the time, it was pretty chilly and rained on and off in London (although not as much as it usually does) so I opted for my white faux fur coat, which I usually only wear on long plane rides (as it’s really soft and basically a blanket), but it was also really efficient in keeping the wind away. The texture in the coat adds more to the overall outfit as well, stepping up a staple black-and-white look. I also couldn’t wait to show off my new high-waisted black skinnies that I managed to find during Paris’ amazing Soldes, which are their huge sales that happen twice a year and completely worth checking out.

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope all your weekends were great, I stayed in and got a lot of work done because I’m going to LONDON next week. Anyway, as you can tell it’s gorgeous out today, which worked out well for this look! Despite being mid-November you can still find a way to head out in a skirt – especially if you’ve got a fuzzy sweater to pair it with. This Hollister (my home, I know) sweater is really warm and the cropped aspect gives it a fun and flirty touch.
