Classic Combinations

  
Recently a fashion marketing company I’m working with emailed me and asked me to list some words that describe my style. It’s a simple question, but I wasn’t sure how to answer. That’s almost as bad as a new acquaintance asking “so tell me about yourself,” and forcing you to sum up your entire image in a few sentences. How do I want to present myself? I’m sophisticated sometimes but usually my priority is to be comfortable. I like trendy, new fashion but also vintage styles. How do I want to define myself, my blog, and my brand?

I sent a few of my closest friends a text and asked them to describe my style, and there was a lot of overlap in the words they used, which was reassuring. One word that stood out to me was “classic.” 

When I was younger I liked to take fashion risks and wear purple eyeshadow. It was a crucial part of discovering what “worked” for me and what didn’t. I started to understand what clothes and colors flattered my body, made me feel comfortable, and reflected how I felt. And now that I’ve experimented, I stick to what works. One of my favorite classic combinations is denim and black, whether it’s black jeans and a t-shirt or a dress. What is your favorite classic combination to wear?

No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn

2015-05-12 11.08.25

Hi friends!  Thank you so much to everyone who has been following my blog for the past few months.  It’s been a lot of fun and it means a lot to me.

I’m finishing up my last final today and moving out of my apartment this weekend, so I most likely won’t post any more until I’m in Paris.  I definitely plan to keep updating this blog with pictures from my trip, so follow me here and on Instagram if you’re interested in seeing those!

I thought this shirt from Brooklyn Industries was perfect for finals week.  “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” has been my mantra for the past few years, but it’s never so relevant as during finals. 😉
