Preppy Punk

I liked this outfit because it was sort of a mix of edgier (for me at least) and classic clothes. I guess this outfit basically started with the boots, a style that I usually wouldn't wear, but I was drawn to their cream color and worn look. I didn't want to go all out punk though, so I decided to wear this pleated skirt to give it a preppy feel as well. I got my shirt when I recently went to San Francisco and I fell in love with the store Madewell, which I had always wanted to go, to but isn't in Portland. Its super comfy but still a little bit glam. Last, I added the studded belt to tie in the shoes with the rest of the outfit:)

Top: Madewell. Skirt: Nordstom. Boots: Steve Madden. Belt: Forever 21.

Colorblocking in the Cold

So first of all I want to apologize for not posting in like a month. Second, dues to the awful Portland weather, I have to start taking my pictures indoors instead of in my bright green backyard. Hopefully soon it will stop raining and be sunny again but for now I hope this beige wall will work well enough. Anyways, about my outfit; I wore this to a dinner out and I was playing with the colorblocking trend a little. I started off with this lavender dress which I love because of the mock sweatheart neck. The skirt is pleated tulle which is a little hard to see but look adorable up close. The I added this blue cardigan to add another color plus for a little warmth. Its a very generic blue but it looks nice with more neutral colors. Last, I wanted a color that really popped so I added the red belt and shoes. While I was a little cold without any tights, this outfit was dressier while still keeping me a little bit warm:)
