When I read a fashion blog, I always picture the writer as a girl wearing succulent dresses and armfuls of sparkly bracelets.
I know my blog mainly revolves around fashion… but I would never be able to call myself a ‘fashion blogger’. That just sounds weird in my mind. Why? Because almost all my outfits consist of a pair of skinny jeans, a loose top, a pair of well-worn leather boots or converse, and maybe a watch or two. Also because my wardrobe is 90% black, grey, navy, and white.
I feel like most bloggers put together really awesome looks that, although beautiful, I would never wear. I just can’t see myself wearing that flouncy embroidered skirt or that huge furry vest. I admit that I really need to work on trying to wear a variety of different items of clothing… but for now, I’ll happily sustain on my skinnies and tees.
Having said all that… Today, I decided to create two extremely wearable outfits using my favorite colors – black and white (and grey) – and my favorite things – skinny jeans, converse, ID Bracelets, watches, safety pin earrings, and Zoe Karssen T-Shirts (they are the softest, most amazing shirts ever! Totally worth the price).
I think these outfits are a relatively realistic representation of what I would wear on the usual day. Notice the lack of interesting elements and accessories :) But I think there’s something refreshing about not piling on jewelry and wearing simple pieces… or maybe I’m using this as an excuse for the lack of attention I pay to my outfits hahaha.
Second Outfit : Rag & Bone Jean Leather Paneled Jeans . Zoe Karssen Soiree Noire Printed Fine-Jersey T-Shirt . Tom Binns Safety Pin Earrings . Marc By Marc Jacobs Henry Dinky Watch . Guiseppe Zanotti Leather-Trimmed Woven High-Top Sneakers . Cambridge Satchel Company Black Patent Leather 15″ (seems like this is out of stock :( at the moment)
So tell me! What do you guys usually wear on a daily basis? Are you one of those people I’m insanely jealous of – one with a huge wardrobe filled with a variety of different things? Or are you like me and tend to stick to basics?
Today, I leave you with a song that I’m loving at the moment (but please, if you get put off easily… do NOT watch the video)
Like a star
Burn a hole in every heart
Strung out on a trail of blood
Who knew the stars were not enough
