The Uniform

Today I wanted to share with you all my go to uniform when I’m not sure what to wear: all black with a few statement pieces. I know all black might seem cliche, but pairing different textures together for a monochromatic look can be incredibly chic. I also chose black pieces with a bit of interest. My tank is from H&M and has a completely sheer back, which gives the opportunity to show off a fun bralette. I also chose my Gap high rise jeans with ripped knees to play with proportions and show off a little skin at the knees. To punch it up, I like to add a statement bag or shoe. In this case I incorporated both. I’m absolutely in love with my new Rebecca Minkoff blue suade bag that I snagged in the Nordstrom abbiversary sale. I have also been loving my new silver reptile print Birks which I found at Nordstrom Rack for only $60. They look amazing together and are put on show with an all black base.

Outfits of the Week: March 23-27, 2015

Hello loves! Happy Friday! This week’s outfits of the week post is going to be a little different. I’m on vacation right now for spring break in Florida. So being on a beach vacation, I didn’t put together an outfit everyday. To give you all a total of five outfits, I asked my friend Jenna to help me out by sharing her outfits with you as well! And yes, we know we look like sisters… We get that a lot. For our shopping day, I’m just sharing my outfit because Jenna didn’t want to change into hers for a picture… It was late, I don’t blame her at all. On another sidenote, we also spent a day at Disney World, so enjoy our festive outfits from that day!
