Aesthetic but not Athletic?

Hey guys! Since it's finally spring, I decided to do a quick photo shoot for a blog post. It was a really nice day out and I had a lot of fun taking these pictures with my all time photographer Liv :) Since there are only 3 weeks left until graduation, this is probably the last blog post I will make at Mercersburg. It feels really weird that I'm finally graduating from high school. Even though I've been waiting for this moment for so long, I feel bitter sweet. 

Anyways, for the outfit, Liv and I both went for the skirt/ sneakers match look, but we styled very differently. I went for the sporty look with my Adidas Originals t-shirt and American Apparel tennis skirt. For the accessories, I added knee-high socks from American Apparel and finished off with Nike Air Force 1 mid sneakers.(I borrowed them from Liv, but I might get a pair for myself because I really like them!!) I call this look "aesthetic but not athletic" because I personally wouldn't work out in this outfit HAHA
Here are the pictures of my outfit. 















   


      

 




  


Liv went for a more girly look. She wore a denim textured crop top from American Eagle and a floral skirt from Forever 21. She threw on a cardigan from Brandy Melville and added blue platform sneakers from Asos to match her top. 





   


    



Thanks for reading! Hope your spring is just as great as mine and also happy AP week for all the AP test takers like myself out there :-)

V-neck sweater and jeans

Hey guys! I just realized it's been a long time since I did my last blogpost. I've been very busy and caught up with a lot of things past two months. However, hopefully I'll be back on track from now on :) I've been seeing a lot of v-neck sweaters in stores this season, and I believe the original is the black and white one from Rag&Bone. I got my sweater from Urban Outfitters but I did get my jeans to pair with from Rag&Bone ;) I finished off the look with a pair of studded combat boots, my new Celine luggage tote (I love it to death!! thanks mom), and some blings on my wrist and nails. Enjoy!

How to style: Leather

Hey guys! Leather is one of my favorite materials to wear during the fall and winter season. The polished black leather gives a chic effect to the entire outfit. It's hard to go wrong with leather bottoms because they pretty much look good with any top, but I came up with couple of styling ideas for inspiration. 


First, I paired my leather skater skirt (Topshop) with a simple gray top (earth music&ecology) I got from Japan a few years ago. My chelsea boots are also from Topshop and I grabbed my black coat that is from A.L.C in case it gets colder. The gold temporary tattoos on my hand and arm are from Mr. Kate. I know I'm a little behind with the tattoo season, but I think they still look cool with the contrast to the black leather. 




















Liv is wearing a pair of black leather pants from Pacsun that have cool contrasting material front and back. They have zipper detailing in the front. She threw on a white lace top from Forever 21 and a black cardigan from Forever 21. She wore a scarf from Gap and a pair of creepers from T.U.K.
I really like how the white lace looks with the black leather. A little femme, a little tough, complete perfection.


















Here I changed my top into a pink cropped sweater from Topshop. Pretty much all my items are from Topshop in this outfit. I love pairing cropped sweaters with high-waisted skater skirts . I recommend adding a pop of color like this if you want to add some brightness to your outfit.
