Vintage Silk

Within the last few months it has been a rare occasion to catch me in any color other than black, white, and gray, but lately I have found myself gravitating more towards pastels like light pink, sky blue, and periwinkle. That being said I was thrilled when I spotted this 100% silk jacket from the 60s at The Garment District. Although it is definitely more of a spring piece, I tested it out this past week and love the way it feels and how it switches things up from my regular black leather jacket and tee routine.

The t-shirt is from the ZARA basics line, the jeans are from Celebrity Pink, and the shoes are from Crown Vintage.

Polar Bear in Boston

As I mentioned in my recent "Currently Inspired by..." I love this season's trend of furry cardigans and jackets. I am not a fan of looking like apolar bear, however, so I went for shorter cardigan versus a longer one of even a coat. I found this cardigan on sale over the summer but was finally able to wear it once temperatures plummeted (thanks to the polar vortex). 

H&M sweater, Truly Madly Deeply dress from Urban Outfitters, ASOS boyfriend watch,
 Steve Madden tights, Crown Vintage boots

The rest of my outfit was simple and black as usual. I wore my black t-shirt dress from Urban Outfitters, fleece tights, and my Crown Vintage boots.

Currently Inspired by...

Recently I have been experimenting with natural hairstyles and although there is A LOT of trial and error I am very happy with how much healthier my hair feels. That being said I was thrilled to see a few natural hairstyles at the Academy Awards. Since Juno hit the Northeast and the blizzard has shut everything down I have been dreaming of spring and weather that doesn't force me to wear clunky boots. That being said I cannot wait until spring comes and I can incorporate more pastels (and white) into to my wardrobe as seen on Zendaya and Lupita Nyong'o. 


The weather has clearly gotten to me and that being said I also love the look of a long coat over a simple dress or tailored skirt.

I have loved the look of furry cardigans and jackets on top of black outfits for awhile now, but I was finally able to find my furry H&M cardigan I bought during the summer which I will feature in a future blog post.

The Hadids. Bella and Gigi Hadid are both are stylish supermodels who I am in love with. 'Nuff said.

New Basics

As the school year continues I’ve realized how often I have been reaching for warm, basic outfits.  I bought this sweater during the summer knowing that I would desperately need them for school but it has actually become one of my favorite sweaters. The shirt however was a much more recent purchase but I already known I will be wearing it to death. If any of you all follow my Tumblr you’ll see that I absolutely love the look of collared shirts poking out from under sweaters, letterman jacks, and blazers. Originally I wanted a crisp white button down with a Peter Pan collar but after looking through multiple stores I was empty-handed. While in H&M last week however I spotted this button down in the men’s section. I loved the crispness of the collar and cuffs that most of the women’s button downs were lacking; I also loved how this button down was only $14.95 versus the $20 ones sold to women.

            As for the bottom half of my outfit the jeans (although the material is much more legging-like) were a Christmas gift from my mother and the black leather ankle boots were a recent purchase.  I also added my boyfriend watch because I felt as though the monochromatic outfit could have used a touch shine.
