Shooting Hoops

Wearing: Thrifted coat and pants, Ruby&Jenna suede top, ASOS boots

Sometimes the most unconventional places make for the best backdrops, with this basketball court in Soho being one of them... Luckily there were no intense ballplayers of whom I had to fight the court for... not that I would have anyways. Never in my life would I have thought I'd have the need to keep an eye out for basketball courts. But, that just another part life's unexpectedness I guess!

With the weather cooling down I've quickly found myself wearing more and more suede. In this look I even went as far as pairing two suede pieces together, and I made sure to break up the suede by wearing a black bottom and brown top. Pretty ironic color choices being that for quite some time brown was an enemy of mine thanks to Limited Too's habit of filling their store with brown-and-pink and brown-and-blue merchandise. Sadly, there was a period in elementary school where I alternated the days I wore those color combos- because god forbid I wore brown and pink two days in a row!

The Whitney

Wearing: Opening Ceremony top, Vintage vest, Zara pants, Nike Air Force 1s

Rooftops always lead to the best picture opportunities, and thankfully, New York has tons. My favorite by far is the rooftop of the Whitney Museum of American Art. The museums new location is brand new considering that it just opened up this past May, and, boy, has it been a success! Not only is the display of modern art incredible, from Warhol to De Kooning to Mary Heilmann's soon-to-be iconic site installation (pictured above, it's the one with the colorful chairs!) but the museum's views blow any other away. If you're in the area, the Whitney is definitely worth a visit. 
As for my outfit, I based it around my new favorite OC shirt. I've been eyeing this shirt for the longest time, but I could never justify buying it for $75... So don't ask why I decided to buy it now- as a broke college student, mind you- because I truly don't know my motives! On top I threw over another favorite of mine, a leather vest. Vests have gradually become a staple for me because they instantly amp up an outfit with no effort. 

Back to School Haul!

My latest video is an awesome back to school haul with my roommate, Sammi Quinn, be sure to give it a watch!!

Meatpacking Days

Wearing: American Apparel top and bottoms, Free People scarf, Zara shoes, Bag from Melrose Trading Post, Quay sunglasses

Well.. as of two Sundays ago I officially became a New Yorker! If you don't follow me on social media (hint hint my insta is @_michaelachristine) or watch my videos on my youtube channel (my channel is linked at the top!) then you wouldn't know that I moved to NYC to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology. Although I've only been here for a short period of time my friends and I have explored (and of course instagrammed) so many parts of Manhattan, between the upper east side, all the villages, museums, and Soho- which we've been to way too many times to admit. Today we decided to take a trip to the Meatpacking district, an extremely underrated part of Manhattan in my opinion. The name "meatpacking" district always sort of threw me off (when I was younger I literally pictured big trucks filled with cold cuts throughout the streets). But once I got that strange vision out of my head and actually walked through this area, I couldn't help but fall in love with the cobblestone streets.
