Day 37, 38, 39

So someone asked me yesterday how my blog was going... ummmm.... or not going. This year has been a year of me doing things differently and I refuse to give up on this. Few and far between my posts might be these days, but I'm still trying.

So I only have three outfits to post, but I do have a few things to discuss.

1. Nastygal.com - My roommate, Aly, turned me on to it. Great clothes, amazing shoes. We love this.
2. Neon. I bought a skin tight, spandex, neon yellow skirt. I have yet to wear it, but it's pretty fantastic. Neon isn't anything new, but it's not going anywhere.

In other news, I have forgotten how to smile. See below :(

Day 34 and 35

I know, I know, I know... I've been slacking on my posts lately. Ok, that is an understatement, but in my defense I just started a new job and the only thing I've been wearing is work clothes. And trust me when I say they aren't worth posting.

It's starting to warm up out there and I've been scouring the streets/style blogs for what is going to be in this spring. I'm personally looking forward to pulling out my floral prints, knee socks, ankle boots and cut off shorts. I've been feeling very vintage, and I'm greatly inspired by browsing ETSY. It's quickly becoming my favorite website.

Anyways, here are two recent outfits:

Above: Brown leather Aldo oxfords, 7 for all Mankind boyfriend jeans, gray wife beater, Leopard print cardigan from Banana Republic, leather bracelets, BDG beanie, Clubmaster Ray Bans

Day 32 and 33

When I find a look I like, I tend to run with it for a few days... maybe longer. You noticed, I'm sure, that for a few weeks I was wearing my hair in braids every single day. That's a perfect example. Or I will wear the same pair of shoes for a week straight... when I'm stuck on something I like to build my outfits around it and use it as an a jumping off point. This week I've been stuck on this kind of grungy/rocker/biker feel.

Day 30

Color. Color is something I used to shy away from. I definitely went through a phase wear I couldn't wear enough black. But today I love to wear color. In my closet you see mostly neutral colors, grays, blacks, browns, ect... but throwing a punch of color in can really change your outfit into something else. American Apparel is a a great place to get basic pieces you can mix and match and pair with tons of things.

Woven leather sandals, American Apparel shiny nylon leggings in Serpent, Bluebird oversized sweater, American Apparel headband.

Day 29

These two outfits are a true testament to how you don't have to peg yourself with just one style. Don't be afraid to wear things that might be out of your comfort zone. People are always saying to me "You can totally get away with that, but I could never wear it" and what I say in response is that you can wear anything you want. Just wear it. Just own it. As I'm always saying, don't put too much thought into it. Style is about having confidence in what you're wearing.

Day 28

Over the weekend I lost my wallet. I know, huge inconvenience... having to replace all those cards and the canceling of bank accounts... it's a nightmare! But one good thing did come out of it: I got to buy a new wallet! I welcome any chance to spend money on something when I can justify actually NEEDING it and not just wanting it. My old wallet was actually a vintage red alligator skin glasses case that I just stuffed everything into and used as a wallet. It was amazing and I'm very sad it's gone. So in order to replace this gem I knew I needed to look in consignment shops around town. I looked in a few places and just couldn't get attached to anything. I really wanted a beat up old leather wallet. I finally found one in an antique store! I know this story has absolutely no relevance to my outfit today, but the lesson here should be that antique stores are a great place to shop for vintage wallets and purses. I hope you enjoyed that little story...

Another two-for! This was from one day over the weekend and I forgot that I even took it. I know I posted a pic of this sweater the other day... but I love it! Hey... I said I never wear the same outfit twice, I said NOTHING about individual items.

Mod boots, stone washed jeans by Bullhead, BDG striped mens sweater.
