IN BETWEEN SEASONS x RAG & BONE

In between seasons is a hella confusing time of year but its all the more reason to never take off my favorite shiny black puffer from Zara. No seriously, this is probably my most noteworthy purchase of 2017. Its also an excuse to wear crop tops and rad ski pants until Spring comes through. The most comical part of it all is that I've actually never been skiing before...mainly because I'm afraid of falling and shattering into a million pieces but these Rag & Bone pants were too good to let go. Maybe if it snows again I'll just put them on and stand outside. Another thing to add on to my completely abnormal list of things you shouldn't have done and reasons why you're weird. It's fine, i've accepted it. Side note: since I was a kid I had an obsession with cutting up clothes and re-working my wardrobe hence why I'm always wearing crop tops that are slightly crooked. Clothing would be really boring if you didn't have fun with it. I just don't settle for boring. My brain wouldn't allow that if I tried.

I'm fully for enhancing your favorite pieces and adding your own accessories like I did with these Rag & Bone pants. I have a huge hoarding problem and own way too many miscellaneous chains, buttons, fabrics, etc. from random shops in NYC. Don't get rid of them! They may be that final touch you were looking for.

This off-white, red and black color combo is the real statement on these pants.

PANTSUIT x PINSTRIPES

If I could wear a suit everyday, I probably would. Not to say that they all look great on me, because trust there are hits and several misses. Sometimes I think I look like Diane Keaton but I get more Danny Devito vibes, it happens. I've never loved wearing dresses even as a youngin', it was always the masculine apparel that caught my eye. I was far more interested in the neutral & dark tones when it came to clothing. Not to say I don't love a cool monochrome look or playing around with color, but black is deff a go-to. Leith is a brand that doesn't get as much attention as it should. What I love about their brand is how sleek and on-trend they are. Each piece can be mix & matched as you choose. You can shop their clothing at Nordstrom. I styled this Leith Pinstripe Suit (now on sale fyi) with a thin white turtleneck to make the stripes & pearlescent buttons pop.

Dare to suit up?

DISTRESSED DENIM

I'm SUPER excited to finally share my latest shoot with you all! I got to work with my talented friend Katherine Pekala . For those of you who haven't checked out her work, do yourself a favor and take a look. She is one to watch and an absolute amazing creative to work with (not to mention her bomb wardrobe inspired by Stockholm street style).

This look is all about distressed denim! These Levi jeans were actually passed down to me by my colleague. When in doubt, always take handy-downs. Every time I have these jeans on (which is very often) I get a ton of compliments. The wash is perfect! Not to mention they're slightly high waisted and make me look like I have a butt (huge plus for my lanky self). Side note: the jeans were not as ripped when originally purchased. My recommendation for someone who wants a bigger rip is to gradually do it instead of taking the risk of ruining them in one shot. They'll eventually get to the perfect distressed look overtime. Scroll down to see other amazing shots from my session with Katherine.

Another trend to watch for is Gingham! Its a versatile print that can be both edgy and cute. Read more from PopSugar on How to Wear Gingham.
