Wednesday Addams Vibes

"I'll stop wearing black when they make a darker color"

As a kid, everyone knew the Addams Family opening song. (Da na na na *snap-snap Da na na na *snap-snap) I love Wednesday's understated sass and ability to not care what anyone else thinks. 

What reminded me of her in this outfit was the collared neckline of the dress and of course the fact that it was black. She had two braids, but my side braid reminded me of her as well. To complement the dark dress, I wore my black Jeffrey Campbell loafers and a semi-dark lip.

Look of the Day: Stripes and Loafers

Look of the Day

So I know striped pants and loafers with tassels don't take up most 19-year-old girls' closets. However, they are some of my favorites. These pants to me are a mixture of 70s vintage and something that a circus performer would wear (just the most random combo). These shoes also make me look like I accidentally shopped in the men's section. But nonetheless, that's what I love about these items. They are unique, and they add an interesting element to whatever I wear with them. 

For this look, I wore a simple loose black top to contrast the printed pants. I thought classic sandals would be boring, so I wore my loafers with it. I also wore a lot of gold jewelry and round sunglasses. Since it has been warm recently, this outfit has a summery feel.

Look of the Day: Pop of Red

Pop of Red

Dark colors- black, gray, navy...those are the colors I tend to gravitate towards when picking an outfit. That being said, all black ensembles, while still stylish, can start to become redundant. That is why I like to add pops of color, texture, or metallics to a mainly neutral outfit to make it more interesting.

For this look I added a red bag as my pop of color. My gray shirt had red on it, so it complemented the color of the bag. I wore black boyfriend jeans and loosely tucked in my shirt to create a casual feel that contrasted the formal look of the heels. I like the versatility and vibe of this look.

Simple Look: Crepes & Sun

Look of the Day: Crepes and Sunshine

When one thinks of February, they usually imagine snow falling, wearing coats, and making hot chocolate. However, California won't have any part of that. It was about 90 degrees yesterday, and there was no other option but to wear shorts and soak up the sunshine. 

I went to The Packing House with a friend for lunch. The Packing House is this trendy, kind of hipstery place. Basically, if you don't own Birkenstocks or have a man bun, you won't fit in, but it's a fun place to eat. I got a crepe with strawberries, Nutella, and ice cream, and it was amazing of course. 

For my look, I wore a thin, almost sheer top, a pair of fabric shorts with tassels on the end, some boots, and a loose cardigan that it ended up being too hot for. It was very casual and simple.

Patches for Days

DIY Denim Jacket 

What happens when you look for something but can't find it? You make it yourself. I spent some time online looking for a denim jacket with patches. I found pictures on Pinterest that served as some nice design inspiration, but I could not find an actual jacket to purchase. Then it occurred to me. It's just a jacket. You don't have to be Christian Siriano to be able to sew some patches onto a jacket. 

So, I bought some patches and trim, grabbed a needle and thread, and  spent an afternoon sewing. 
I understand that this jacket is a little "out-there" (a polite way of saying obnoxious) but I like it.

Company Shoot

Company Shoot Outfit + Enter to Win a Voucher to

Black crop top, black shorts, heels, a hooded cardigan, and dark lips - not an everyday look for me to say the least. A couple Sundays ago a dance company that I am apart of shot some pictures for our upcoming show. It was very cold so I would have rather worn a onesie and slippers, (just kidding) but I decided on something a little more edgy. Here's a couple photos from the shoot.
