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.
Happy Monday, everyone! Even though it’s quite dark and gray out (where’s the good spring weather??) I decided to bring you all some florals. This embroidered denim jacket, or any denim jacket, is the perfect transition piece for spring. It packs a punch with a retro-vibe and a casual feel. The one I have here is faux-sherpa lined, which is really helping me out as we don’t seem to be capable of letting go of winter yet (it snowed three days ago). The funny thing about a denim jacket too is that, if you’re like me, it’ll force you to wear something besides blue jeans for your bottoms. I did cheat a little, and still opted for double-denim, but my jeans here are gray (shh, don’t tell).
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 Monday and happy star to the semester! (If you are, in fact, in college and happen to, in fact, start today.) I only had two classes today and while they were both entirely in German, the day went pretty well. It’s sad that I won’t be taking anymore French classes, but I’m excited to throw some more effort into German! It flurried on and off all day which is pretty typical behavior for this area in January. I wouldn’t be surprised if we have something more significant on the way. Even though it gets pretty cold I still like to serve looks when I can (I love that phrase). This one is really fun because while the majority of the outfit is gray, the pops of pink make it more me. I’m obsessed with these Steve Madden boots that I got from my mom for Christmas . Velvet boots have quickly become a staple and I love blush pinks so this combo was perfect! Basically, the outfit is cozy and fun. These are gray days, so my advice is the copy the weather but raise the bar. Much more rewarding.
I decided this week to face the ever-present conundrum of New England winters. It’s the time of year where we pile on the most layers, and end up covering any sartorial success with numerous fleece jackets, hats, scarves and leggings, waddling down the sidewalk like a lost penguin. We are then faced with the question: do I even bother trying to do anything with fashion if it means sacrificing fingers and toes to frostbite? Well, with this look I ran straight into the cold of the Boston harbor and managed to stay warm. My main player was this H&M faux fur jacket. It’s a bit heavier than other coats I have but it makes up for it in warmth and style. I then accented my gray jeans with other gray pieces to tie it together, ending of course, with my star print boots. Where others dull in the winter, I strive to go just a bit shinier (and you should, too). The trick is to have a coat that is both functional and stylish. While knee-length puffer coats are warm, they tend to have the penguin effect. Conversely, biker jackets are always chic, but tend to offer nothing in terms of warmth. We must therefore strive to find our puffer-biker and walk confidently through snow, sleet and wind, knowing we look great and will arrive at our destination with all limbs intact.
Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you’re all either resting or ready to have a wonderful holiday break. I for one am back at Hollister for the time I’m at home, so be ready to see another upsurge of their pieces in my posts (what can I say, I shop while I work). I thought I’d bring you a little preview of the party I’m hosting this week, including some pretty drinks I’ll be mixing, my family tree (that’s just a bit of a bonus) and a peek at the most important part, the outfit. The blouse I’ve got is a really beautiful holiday red and has great dimension. The jeans are a new acquisition and they’re quite cropped so I paired them with some calf-height boots. I’m really excited to see the exaggerated fringe has started to make its way into more designers’ minds. The outfit is fun, easy, and you can actually move in it. I mean, I’ll be with all my friends, I don’t need to strap into some impossible matrix of a dress, right? (That’s for NYE anyway.)
Happy Tuesday, everyone and welcome back from Thanksgiving break! I hope you all had a lovely rest and overate gloriously. I myself was in London for the week to visit my boyfriend so my Thanksgiving day meal included fish and chips from a pub along the English coast. Throughout the week I saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, visited Oxford and did just a little Black Friday shopping. My obsession with ruffle shirts was pretty pronounced during the day as I purchased two different ones – including the one you see here – while wearing another ruffle shirt. The outfit I’m showing you today is mostly from my Topshop haul. I love pairing this ruffle shirt with these high-waisted mom jeans because it balances casual and put-together – my favorite combo. I also love the homage to vintage Levi’s these jeans are making. They are definitely a new favorite of mine.
