So stay awake with me awhile.
Rise and Shine.

Greetings from Baltimore! This is a casual and cozy outfit I wore to brunch with my MD/VA friends on a rainy day. The iridescent Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s sweater was chic and warm, just what I need for a chilly February morning. Coupled with some rolled jeans and my favorite H&M ankle booties, and I had myself a look that wasn’t too over the top, but still stayed true to my fashionable personality.
For brunch we went to Golden West Cafe, in the Hamden-Canton area of Baltimore. I felt at home in it’s hipster vibe, reminding me of my local Providence haunt of Julian’s. The Tex-Mex brunch was deliciously filling, and the salsa was almost too spicy too handle, even for a spice-queen like me.

Thanksgiving Dressing

A little preview as to what I’m wearing today; keeping it dressy-casual this Holiday, and planning to spend the entire day with my immediate family and a few close family friends.

Skirt from TJ Maxx

J. Crew sweater

Baker’s shoes

Amercan Apparel tights

H&M ring

Satya Jewelry necklace (gifted)

H&M earrings

Vintage Liz Claiborne hat

Hope you all have a great holiday! Happy Thanksgiving ❤

Fall Uniform

I’ve legitimately already worn this outfit three times. Begging my roommate to take photos of it and he always refused, so I’d wear it again. Why not? It’s cute, comfortable, warm…It’s my perfect fall uniform! So, in lieu of football being on ALL day, I was able to strike a deal in exchange of photos for the television rights.

Say What? tunic sweater

DIY skirt I made in High School

H&M Jacket

Target Over The Knee knit socks

Aldo boots (old)

R&Em gifted bag

I made this skirt, and a matching vest, straight out of high school. I have never attended a private school but I sometimes ponder how things would have played out differently if I had. Would it have hindered my sartorial experimentation, or would it have challenged me and forced me to hone in on proper accessorizing?

In present times, though, my only problem is that I’m not currently in school. I miss education, learning, and challenging myself with projects and my high aspirations for good grades. Who knows, hopefully I can go back to school someday but for now I’ll keep wearing my burgundy plaid skirt and working my dream in the fashion industry.

DIY Inspirations

I’ve always been a crafty creative person. I used to make plenty of clothes and accessories in high school and shortly after, for example this dress:

Sadly, with my demanding schedule and social life I rarely find time to sit and have some one-on-one with my sewing machine. The most recent thing I’ve managed to whip up is this slouchy clutch.

 

However, I do have an entire folder on my laptop of ideas and plans brewing for things to be made! I figured I’d share my inspirations with you (after being inspired by this post by Fashion Infusion).

I’ve already started on a fringe-sleeve top and have recently made some purchases from the trimmings stores on 38th street. My sewing machine is finally getting some much deserved love and I can’t wait to go to my parents’ home for a few days where I have a HUGE stash of scrap fabric!

Stay tuned for some great DIY’s, my loyal readers ! ❤
