How to Tie Scarves// Skinny Scarves & Bandanas

As of late, scarves have been my go-to accessory. My favorites have been skinny scarves (the ones that look like a men's tie!) and bandana-style or square scarves. In my latest video I show TEN ways to tie them, here is the link, hope y'all enjoy.

Something about this dress makes me feel like a little girl trapped inside a teenage mind. Between the playful green detailing, oversized fit, and overall dress silhouette I feel like this dress makes me look younger than I already look.

But, I'm totally into it.

I also incorporated some different patterns into this look. I mean, houndstooth and a black and white patterned neck scarf in one look? Who am I?

Blending In

Am I surprised my outfit decision for this day blends in with the background? Not so much because if I'm being honest with myself, I am in the Meatpacking District half of the time. 

Mostly likely I'm either snapping pics of the cobblestone, making journeys between boutiques, or forever regretting not making an appointment for my cracked iPhone screen at the Chelsea Apple store that I've learned does not take walk-ins. 

But, despite my unintentional efforts in looking like a chameleon, I happen to really dig the brick background up against my brown vest and my white dress juxtaposed with the monotone gray and white buildings.

One of my favorite go-to layering techniques lately has been putting a mock neck or turtleneck top underneath a lower cut sweater or shirt. Here I went for white on white but normally I'll mix different colors for a more obvious look. I kept the rest fairly simple with a classic pair of bootlegged jeans- and naturally I had to cut the bottoms of them to achieve that raw hem effect blowing up everywhere. An ideal look for a relaxing day of shopping and exploring SoHo.

Styling White Sneakers // Nike Air Force 1s

Watch my styling lookbook here! My obsession with white sneakers has not faded a tad bit over the last year so I thought it was time to do a styling video about my favorite shoe!

Emerald Elegance

Wearing: Thrifted jacket, Zara top and pants, ASOS shoes

I'm not one to wear much color, especially recently. Donning black and shades of gray has always been a daily occurrence for me and as of late I've been throwing tans and browns into the mix. Progress, right? Years ago I thought that colors came across as tacky and dark tones portrayed this sense of richness and elegance without trying. I still wore color from time to time but when I did I always had this thought- that I developed in middle school might I add- in the back of my mind. And when I saw these emerald culottes at Zara that thought came rushing back to me. Though they're green, they're a rich green.

Tied Down

Wearing: Topshop jacket, Forever 21 turtleneck, Zara pants, backpack from Buffalo Exchange, Nike Air Force 1s

Last fall and winter turtlenecks were a concerning obsession of mine to say the least, and I highly doubt this year will be any different. Already- merely a few weeks into fall- I have to discipline myself to consciously not put on a turtleneck in the morning because I just wear them too damn often. But, I thought one post with a turtlenck wouldn't hurt. An outfit like this is ideal for class. These knit pants from Zara paired with a simply, cotton turtleneck is the perfect outfit to feel like you just rolled out of bed while still looking cool. This robe-style jacket from Topshop- that I just found on sale for $45!- makes the outfit complete.

Fringed jacket, Fringed hair

Wearing: Ruby and Jenna jacket, Zara top, H&M pants, Thrifted backpack, Quay sunglasses 

First and foremost, let me point out the obvious... I got bangs!! This was definitely a spur of the moment decision as I was in dire need of a hair change, I didn't want to go through dyeing my hair so getting a cool haircut seemed like my next best option. To play along with the "fringe" theme I had going on with my bangs, wearing my favorite fringe jacket was an obvious (not really... it was actually a coincidence). And, once again, I paired a suede jacket with suede pants just like my last post. I'm not quite sure why I've had such an affinity towards suede lately, but it came at a perfect time of year being that the temperature is cooling down pretty rapidly and suede is ideal for fall weather.
