I like to think that my style is a somewhat balanced combination of sweet and edgy. Although these are contradicting ideas, I try to create a Ying and Yang feel in every outfit I put myself in. If it’s too preppy, I add my trusty Converse or a pair of boots. If it’s too grunge, I throw on my Katz flats, loafers, or a blazer. When I came across these perfect plaid trousers, I simply had to have them. End of story. But I knew it would be a challenge to create a look that was truly me. So I used all my tricks, and I managed to take these pants and incorporate them into an outfit that encompasses all that I love regarding style. This idea of balance within an outfit is very important to me when crafting an outfit. xx

Today’s outfit is probably the epitome of a “me” outfit. I love to mix slightly rebellious pieces with girly touches, but the overall tone of the outfit is much more edgy than not. These moto pants are a new favorite addition to my wardrobe. I needed some color in my wardrobe, and I also needed some new pants. But I was definitely hesitant to buy colored pants, because let’s face it; the last pair of colored pants I wore were my hot pink skinny jeans from 6th Grade. The thing I love about green, however, is that it acts as a sort of denim. It’s neutral for the most part, unless you intend to highlight the color with the rest of what you’re wearing. We’ve been seeing army green a lot lately,  and army green is great, but I’d suggest going  for something evergreen, like my pants! xx

Feeling Festive

Although a little premature, I couldn’t help but daydream today about what festivities lie ahead in which I’ll be able to wear luxurious combinations of dresses, coats, tulle, and more. I picked up this coat at H&M, and even was surprised at how little it seems like it’s as cheap as it was. I’m a sucker for any mix of pretty and edgy. I paired the girly tulle dress with a black jacket and black leather boots for a perfectly satisfying Yin and Yang feel. Definitely expect some similar combos this upcoming Holiday season. (Gosh, how am I already thinking of the holidays?!) xx
