Scotsman swagger

Hello lovely people!!!! What’s good? Hopefully everything!

My goodness, I’ve missed posting outfits recently. But that was then, this is now.

This weekend my cousin and I went to the Goodwill thrift shop around her area here in Columbus, where I’ve been visiting. I found a few awesome pieces I can work into my wardrobe seamlessly. I fell for a Scottish-inspired skirt not only for the amazing pattern, but also because I love this skirt length. It’s somewhere between prudishly modest and intriguingly feminine (haha). When I decided to put it on this sunny morning, this studded tank literally fell right into my hands! Of course, I did not resist.

And thus, this came together.  At the last moment I traded a droopy cardigan for a denim jacket (soo glad) and paired with comfy ankle boots.  I also carried a scarf with me in case these Ohio winds suddenly began to rage, as they did.

Love it?  Hope so. Hate it? Ehh

Furry Fury

So I got a hold of this fur vest and thought I wanted to pair it with my furry hat that I wear all year, honestly…I love that on this day the sun was so bright, made me forget the cold for a moment.

This look was spur of the moment; I was already wearing the hat then I took out the gold-striped sweater and one of my favorite thrifted blazers, baby blue this time. These black pants have always been too big so maybe, they work for the wide-leg look? Layering the vest over my blazer was a first for me, but my eyes are enticed as the slight sheen of the blue peaks through fur.

Accessories– minimal with just a simple necklace– I think there’s enough going on for now. I’d love to re-style some of these pieces, hopefully soon and maybe I’ll include more accessories. For now, I hope you enjoy this look and I’d love to know how you layer your fur! 😉

Street Steez:: 3.14.14

One of my favorite fashion mediums is street fashion. I’m talking about looking like a million o’ bucks when you popped out of the house– not that “street” style that hides tons of sponsor $ behind a pretty smile and the latest runway looks. **hope these don’t fall into that group!**

Of course if you’ve been reading this blog, I’m sure it’s obvious that I love high fashion as much as I  love thrifting (O_O); half of my uni life was spent at the local Goodwill. So when I talk about street style, I mean this in its raw form. Everyday expression. I’m talking about people rocking their own clothes, imagine that. Haha

So dive into my collection of recent favorite looks.
