June '15 • Dressing for the Flea

Friday, June 26, 2015

Urban Outfitters dress, H&M hat, Coach bag, Crystal Chimera necklace 

Here is a quick outfit I wore to the Brooklyn flea last weekend! Little bit of bag lady vibes, but it was perfect for my day of browsing the vintage stands in Williamsburg. No luck picking up clothing items, but I did find this dainty gold bat necklace from Artists and Fleas. I've been interested in collecting smaller jewelry and this one caught my eye as I was eagerly stomping through the various vendors. I guess it's a favorite of mine now since I haven't taken it off since I bought it. Look forward to seeing this little guy on my neck in upcoming ootds (Maybe I should name him--any suggestions?)

TGIF everyone!

Urban Outfitters shirt, H&M shorts, Adidas Stan Smith sneakers, Ray Ban sunglasses, Forever 21 jewelry, Coach bag

Hey everyone!

Posting a quick summer look for you guys today. I think my color palette consists of white, black, and blue these days, so my apologies for the similar style of outfit, but I wear what I want haha! Since interning at ELLE, I've been interested in putting together semi-causal outfits because I don't want to look too sloppy at work, but at the same time, I want to stay true to my style. I bought this button up on the Urban Outfitters website (so many stores are having summer sales right now so browse around!) and the white shorts are from H&M. This is definitely a fuss-free outfit that I can see myself wearing throughout the summer (sorry, I AM an outfit-repeater--aka Lizze Mcguire anybody?) And of course, my love--Adidas Stan Smith--had to be worn with this look because I've converted to a sneaker head since beginning of this year! These babies actually took a while for me to break them in--the tabs on the heels gave me nasty blisters because they're really stiff leather sneakers--but they're super comfortable now and I can walk on NYC pavement for hours! 

It's a beautiful Sunday today and I'm headed my way towards Brooklyn! Hopefully I can capture some of the activities I'm doing today and update you guys later :) Thanks for reading and let me know what you guys are doing today or this summer! I love reading your stories <3

Brandy Melville top, Zara trousers, Steve Madden platforms, Prada bag, Ray Ban sunglasses

Hello, guys!

I know, I know...being gone for six months is  unacceptable, but I'm back!

Honestly, junior year second semester was the busiest semester I've ever had in my college career, but I survived and did pretty well ;) And now that it is officially summer, I thought I would pick things back up and update the good ol' blog with summer outfits and my everyday life in the Big Apple.

I wrapped up my internship at Into The Gloss back in May (it was an awesome experience--might do a looking back post on this) and started a new internship at ELLE.com! And I have both my boyfriend and sister staying with me over the summer so I'll always have a +2 wherever I go (#squad). I'm super excited because this is the first time I'm spending the summer in NYC, and yeah I miss the West Coast (best coast <3), I'm looking forward to everything that New York has to offer me. 

I kept things pretty simple with this outfit--a basic high neck top for the base and the nautical-feel pants for a pop of color!

I am going to sign off for today because my apartment is a billion degrees and I feel the NY sunshine baking me to toast brown. Thanks for reading!
