Back to Cool

Happy hump day! Today’s outfit is super casual and comfortable for a simple school day. This year, I think I am definitely going to be focusing on more cozier outfits for days I have class because I have to commute to campus now. Naturally, I have been trying to find outfits to wear with my Adidas Ultra Boosts because they are comfortable as heck. Running back and forth is a breeze in these shoes. I cannot recommend them enough!

Right now, I am still testing the water in my classes and gauging how my workload for the semester while also balancing a brand new job. Hopefully, I can still continue to upload Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays but I apologize if some weeks I cannot fully fulfill that promise! Bare with me, please!

Wishlist #5: 50s Inspiration

Hello, lovelies. Recently, I started a mood board (an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc., intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept) on my wall so I can have a quick source of inspiration throughout the day. I chose particular images that resonated with me, including the image above that I found on Tumblr. First off, I have a strong adoration for fashion circa the 50’s-70’s and this particular woman above gives off a strong feminine presence I wish I could emanate. I love the silky blouse paired with those high-waisted wide pants complete with her observant gaze and cigarette in hand. There’s something romantic about this entire look that I cannot get enough of.
With this exact photo in mind, I browsed the online shops and picked out some accessible, modern day pieces that I feel she would wear in present-day.

Fall Flowers

Hello, lovlies! Summer is over and I have been trying to gradually transition my wardrobe into autumn. I found this beautiful high-low blouse and fell in love with the dark floral pattern and moody vibes. I thought it was a lovely piece to layer on top of a black canvas. Since it is still warm outside, I opted for a plain black body-con dress but I also think it will look so cute under a black top and jeans! I will definitely be wearing this top a lot in the next few months.

Is anyone else going back to school soon and clinically depressed? Ugh, totally dreading going back to class!

Currently Loving

Hello, lovelies! Today’s post is just a quick little blurb on some things I have been loving/interested in at the moment. I promise I will have a new outfit post up this Friday, so stay tuned for that!

1. As you might have seen in my last post, I copped the Adidas Ultra Boost in white and have been obsessed with wearing them. To be honest, I am a bit anxious when I wear them because I do not want to tarnish them and wish to keep that crips, clean look for as long as possible.

2. If you keep with all things hype, you might have heard this past weekend was Kanye West’s one weekend only ‘Pablo’ pop-up shop where he only opened 21 stores worldwide. He dropped the location 24 hours before the stores were opened. It’s funny because my boyfriend and I wanted to go shopping and just happened to come across the Philadelphia one at the King of Prussia mall and we had to cop something. I picked up the Ultralight Bean t-shirt so I will definitely be styling that in a future post!

3. Speaking of hype, I was super excited to have my photo featured on Hypebae’s instagram. One of the most exciting features I’ve had so far (even if it’s only my feet LOL).

4. FRANK OCEAN. I am so excited. Finally, the long awaited album ‘Blonde’, formally known as ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ album has released and I could not be more ecstatic. I jokingly said that this album made me question my existence but to be honest it really does. It gets real deep. But if you are into soothing r&b, definitetly give it a listen. His voice is so enrapturing and you will fall in love in a second.

5. Although I cannot really say it is a favorite, I am almost finished reading ‘Lolita’ by Vladimir Nabokov. After hearing the title so many times, I checked it out of the library and had no idea it was about middle aged man and his obsession with “nymphet”, a 12 year old girl, so I was in for quite a surprise. However, it’s a fascinating insight into the mind of main character, Humbert. Not to mention, Nabokov’s writing is absolutely flawless and poetic.

I would love to know what you have been loving as of lately!

Sneakers You Need in Your Life

Yesterday, I went to the city with my boyfriend and did not expect to be coming home with a new pair of Adidas Ultra Boost but I did. My boyfriend got them a few months back and ultimately convinced me to go back and get them. Now they are the most expensive pair of shoes I own… (Lord, please let me keep them white forever). However, I am so ecstatic with my purchase because while being the most expensive pair of shoes, they are also the most comfortable and will be perfect for the upcoming semester.

That being said, I believe everyone needs a nice pair of trainers in their wardrobe so I compiled a few of my favorites that I also have been eyeing! Enjoy!

How to Wear a Slip Dress in Fall

In a previous post, I relayed my love for the ever popular slip dress and knew I had to make this look fall appropriate so I can continue to wear my favorite lil number even as the days grow colder.

First off, I loved my cream dress so much, I decided to get one in black which is perfect for a more moodier season. Since the dress is quite light and airy, I also layered a cropped shirt underneath which is a beautiful lace and adds some contrasting texture. If I get cold, which is highly probable, I grabbed this army green trench coat to pop on top for yet another layer.

Lastly, the accessories are really what make this outfit fall acceptable. From the top, we have this gorgeous light grey suede cap which keeps my head a little more insulated. I brought along a pair of sunglasses (it’s still sunny in fall y’know) and for footwear, went with a black suede ankle bootie. Accessories are the easiest way to transform an outfit and these particular ones are super affordable and can be found at Zaful.

L8r Sk8r

Sometimes there are so many things I want to do and learn, but I simply lack the amount of time to do it. However, this summer my boyfriend and I watched King of the Road and I became determined to be at least an ounce as cool as some of those guys on that show. I decided that this summer I would take the time to teach myself how to skateboard so I borrowed a Santa Cruz board from my boyfriend and taught myself in nearby parking lots until I knew how to ride! Little accomplishments like this make me happy.

Which leads me to my newest pair of Vans x Madewell shoes! I am so in love with them. I wanted a pair of sk8-hi’s and when I saw this dreamy denim collaboration version I knew I had to have them. To go with them, I wore these denim jeans (they are boys haha) I found at Goodwill for $3 and DIY’d the frayed hemline. Together, I think both of them create such a rugged, casual chic look.
