Garage Holiday Contest // Boucle Sweater

Wearing: all clothing from Garage

Whatsup guys?!  I'm stoked to be teaming up with Garage Clothing for an awesome holiday contest. The contest started on November 9th and everyday for 14 days Garage is giving away one of their best-selling items, and today they're giving away this amazing sweater I'm rocking here. It is a boucle sweater that is super soft and the perfect piece for fall layering. If you guys know me then you're probably not surprised with what I paired it with- a mock neck top and mom jeans... typical Michaela.

Also, when you enter you're automatically drawn in for the chance to win a $250 gift card to Garage. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Be sure to check out their website for the other cool merchandise they carry- whether you're a boho/indie chick or a minimalist like me you're bound to find things that suit your style!

Good luck!!

Blending In

Wearing: Topshop dress, thrifted vest, Forever 21 shirt, Free People scarf, DSW boots

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.

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!
