Blackout 10.14.14

This outfit makes me happy because it’s all black. That sounds morbid and weird but black literally goes with everything…even black. Also having a black dress and blazer in your wardrobe is SO essential. Not only do they go together, but they go with a million other things. Blazers can go with anything from jeans to dress pants and black dresses can be dressed up or down. If you don’t feel like making an entire outfit…throw on a black dress and you have an easy fix. Dresses and blazers are easy to travel with and always look effortlessly put together. I put mine with a choker necklace and booties but they can go hundreds of different ways 🙂

It’s all black and white 8.11.14

So I’ve been slacking lately because I’ve been super busy turning 21 and all (my birthday was Wednesday 😊). This was sort of a combo of outfits I wore over the last week. I like it because it’s casual with the flat boots but throw on heels and earrings and it becomes an outfit for going out. I recently got the gingham vest at a vintage shop and the top is also a vintage piece. I mixed the two pieces with tights I made myself last year, and before I knew it I had a whole outfit. I love the idea of making things yourself so these tights are something I really like. You could pair them with a skirt or even wear them with a short dress. The vest could also go over a dress or even a long sleeved top. I like the idea that it’s black and white too because those are my colors 🙂 Mix in the pop of turquoise jewelry and you have a vintage but fresh look all in one!
