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 🙂
This weekend I went to a huge yard sale I heard about in Carmel. I saw a flyer for it while eating at a crepe restaurant at keystone at the crossing. A woman purging her closet was getting rid of clothes she couldn’t wear anymore, so I jumped on the opportunity to grab pieces for a good price. She had everything from Banana Republic to Gap…each piece for $5! The top I’m wearing was thrifted from the sale and I love the nude color of it. I also took the pants from literally the back of my closet…I’ve had them for over 5 years and I don’t even remember where they are from. The jacket is fairly new but all paired together it sort of just goes. I also really like the idea of a monochromatic outfit for summer.

Hi 🙂 I’m Alexia Kelly, an almost 21 year old college student living in my parents house in Indianapolis, trying to figure it all out…with the help of amazing clothes. Truly one of my greatest passions, fashion is something I have loved since I was a child. I have an idea where I want to go with this blog, but need to figure out the details…name,theme,etc…I’m hoping to post about every other day with a new outfit. My overall theme of this fashion blog is showing how to pair the old with the new (vintage with new things) and even things in your closet shoved way in the back….taking those pieces and adding jewelry and accessories to make them fabulous. I hope to get my name out there and would eventually love to have a career in the industry. I hope you enjoy and there will be more to come 🙂
