Monochromatic

I have loved monochromatic outfits since I was young. Mixing neutral tones, or pairing the same tones is pretty much my favorite way to style myself and others. I adore all black, all white, and most neutrals in between, though I love the occasional pop of red, or splash of pastel. I have decided that this is what I will mostly feature in my fashion posts. It has such a clean, organized feel to it, I have always admired other bloggers and stylists, that work with photographers that can capture the essence of a monochromatic outfit. My favorite blogger would hands down be @FIGTNY. She truly knows her way around black, white, and grey, and really puts thought into the outfits that she styles and the content that she creates. As I mentioned in one of my Instagram posts, I admire Swedish style, & architecture because it is usually monochromatic. I put together a monochromatic outfit the other day and figured I would share it. Since I wear stuff like this all the time it slipped my mind to post about it, and I am guilty of having this preconceived thought that being a fashion blogger, means posting something new, trendy, and colorful, as that is what I see, not all, but a lot of fashion bloggers post. I will definitely learn a lot on this journey, but for now I am learning what it means to post the content that I want, and share my personal style, not the style that I think will get me the most “likes ” on Instagram, or what others want to see.

Now, to the outfit!

Shirt: Cropped white, off-the-shoulder, basic tee. I’ve worn this with so many different things, and can use it in different styles, and that is why I only love four main colors in my wardrobe. Also the shirt is sheer, so I had to decide if the bra being shown was important to me or not, and I decided, not. To everyone who feels the urge to tell me they can see my bra showing through the shirt, I say to you… Enjoy 🙂

Skirt: Nasty Gal lace up front, leather,  mini skirt. Thrifted this for a mere $6. Can you believe it? I was pretty excited.

Shoes: Black pumps from Forever 21. Simple, yet pulls the outfit together.

Coat: Thrifted this one as well. I’m a big lover of vintage thrift shops and consignment stores. The original brand is London Fog. It is mixed Black and White material woven like salt and pepper almost resembling television static.

Earrings: Bauble Bar. Purchased at Anthropologie.

Glasses: My newest obsession is over these glasses. I featured them in my ‘What’s in my Bag’ post, if you haven’t already read it, you should. They were $12.

Again, I just feel this happiness with blogging now, and as if this pressure was taken off my shoulders to make my blog like everyone else’s, or reminiscent of. Its definitely not what blogging should be about. Very excited to share my Style, Inspiration, and Outfits with everyone reading.

XOXO, Chloe

New Years Eve

New Year, New Clothes.

I feel as though every year, in December, we get so swept up in the holidays, and the year coming
to a close that when December 28th rolls around we scramble like mad men to plan a party for the night of December 31st.
It can get stressful. Trust me, I know. So in order to make it a little easier for you, I came up with 3 outfit Ideas for New Years Eve, that will work for the Classy one, the Edgy one, and the Vintage doll.

Outfit #1 : The Classy One

Dress: This dress is my absolute fave. I love the MOD 60’s style cut, with the modern twist being it is COVERED in
gold sequins. It is from Tobi.com, I love this shop’s party dresses, so much glitz and glam. Mine doesn’t have sleeves,
but this one is identical, except it has 3 quarter sleeves.

Earrings: These earrings totally tie in with the MOD theme, adding a bit of detail and dazzle to the outfit.
They are drop earrings the hang about 2 inches from your earlobe. They are rose gold and so cute on.

Shoes: The shoes I chose to pair with this outfit, Ive owned for about a year. I purchased them at Forever 21.
They were Patent Leather, Nude, 2 strap, mock Disco Platform heels. Quite a pair. These are faux suede and would be just a cute.

Outfit #2: The Edgy One

Shirt: 3 words. Sequined covered Peplum. This shirt is ah-mazing. Not only is it cute for a party, but next to dressing it up,
you can dress it down, or lower. I paired this glittery top with hoop earrings, ripped jeans and my favorite pair of Chelsea ankle boots.

Tops

Jeans: Black. Ripped jeans. Need I say more?

Chelsea: Recently purchased my dream shoes, NBD. But Really, I’m seriously in love with these boots. Talk about versatility, these boots take the cake,
and the frosting, and the sprinkles. The cherry on top? They were only $40, ACME better watch out.

Hoops: Also from Charlies.

Outfit #3: The Vintage Doll

Dress: I’ve owned this gorgeous vintage Gatsby style dress for ages. I originally purchased it from Abercrombie & Fitch for $72. It is a light pink, chiffon, mini
dress with intricate beading detail on the top, giving it a glamorous 1920’s vibe, beckoning it to be danced all night in. I found a very similar dress for only $16 more.
This one is almost a dead ringer, to about the knee, but with more beading down the dress. If I didn’t already have 3 outfits for New Years Eve, I would be purchasing this
dress myself.

Shoes: Simple, yet chic. Less is more, as they say.

It is safe to say all of these outfits keep the 3 most important things in New year eve outfit, in check.

1. Convenience: AKA sequins are spill proof my friends, or at least an easy wipe.
2. Trends: This is like the one event a year where you can dress as glamorous and crazy as you want with out people staring at you, as if you were crazy. Well except for New York
Fashion Week. And Paris Fashion Week. And Milan Fashion Week. But that’s not the point.
3: Dancing Shoes: All three pairs of these shoes are some of my personal favorites because of the combined style and comfort when wearing them for long periods, I mean you will be
dancing all night long, right?
May the music be loud, the night be long, and your glass never empty.

Happy New Year, Dolls.
XOXO, Chloe

Whats in my Bag?

 

Whats in my Bag.

I don’t know about you, but these are absolutely one of my favorite posts to read, and videos to watch.
Maybe I’m nosey, but I get so much inspiration from these. I love seeing what products, beauty items, and other bits and bobs people carry around with them on the day-to-day, so I figured I would give it a shot.

WIMB 1

First off, my actual bag. I was tired of carrying around a tote this summer so I went on the hunt for a little black backpack. While at a Thrift shop in Santa Barbara, I found an adorable little black leather backpack with a twist latch for $10. I grabbed it without another thought and bought it, and upon later inspection for what brand it was, I discovered it was an Authentic Coach bag, original tags, print and all. I was Psyched. It quickly became my go to bag. It is medium-sized, has double straps, is charcoal black leather, which matches everything, and has a ton of space for such a little backpack.

WIMB 2 coach bag

Inside I always carry around a notebook. I prefer to jot down notes, info, and plans on paper, so I can
go back and reference them rather than using say an iPhone notepad. It’s always handy to keep one of these because you never know when creativity will strike you. I am constantly at a coffee shop, grocery store, or out and about and get new blog post ideas, and video ideas and I love having a note-book handy so I can just jot the ideas down. I just got this adorable black one as a gift from my grandmother. The front is covered in what appears to be boarding times for different destinations. It is from the brand Moleskine.

WIMB 6 notebook

Next few items would be, 1. These fab Steve Madden frames I just purchased. These glasses are big, which I adore, and matte black, which is my favorite color/texture combo.

WIMB 5 sm glasses

2. New “Black” fragrance mist and hand cream from Bath & Body works. These are from their Cosmic collection. This fragrance has hints of Sandalwood, notes of vanilla, and musk. Not to mention the fact that they are totally
aesthetically pleasing, but the best part is that B&B does not test on animals, so all of their products are cruelty free. We love a woke, affordable, and caring company.

WIMB 4 b&b Black fragrances

3. Lipstick. Along with a tube of Rosebud Salve, that you will never see me without, I
always carry a lipstick with me so if on a whim, I decide that I need to do myself up a little more, simply reapply what
I was wearing, or even change the shade, I have at least two options with me. The one pictured is Mac Cosmetics’ Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick
in the shade “Feels so Grand”.

WIMB 3 mac retro matte lip cream

Last but not least I carry my phone with me, pretty much always, with a black case.
Sensing a theme yet?

Let me know in the comment section some of the items you always have in your bag!
XOXO, Chloe

Fall Apology🍂

Hey Blog, viewers, and anyone that happens to read this. I’m sorry. I’ve been slacking. My summer was crazier than I could put into words. Long story short. Graduation, Contacted for a paid internship in Santa Barbara, California, Hired, moved all of my (small) life down there, 3 months for the summer, fun times, wonderful and happy memories, moved home just in time for autumn. I have had such a pleasant autumn so far. I have gone apple picking, pumpkin patch peeping, and begrudgingly went on a hay ride, which I regretted afterwards because of my allergies. I wore so many cute outfits on those adventures. I have been slowly collecting cute autumn and winter staple pieces since late July. I am glad now, because I have had such great times mixing and matching staple pieces and minimal pieces. I can confidently say I have been able to find my style. Surely, like many others it is a mix of eras, and it makes me so happy. Throwback to those middle school days when all I wore was Aeropostale… yikes😳. I used to despise my parents for taking me to go thrift shopping with them and looking for hours through consignment stores. I was little and bored but now, I live for it. It’s like a treasure hunt and I am always so excited when I find a vintage treasure. Patting myself on the back here, I was at a Thrift store over the summer, in Santa Barbara, and was looking to find a cute black backpack to use as a bag. Found one that was a very simple, minimal leather backpack with a little gold turning clasp. I pad $10.00 for it. Two days later I went out to dinner with my sister. She walked up to our table and had a bag the same as my backpack but it was an olive green purse. She informed me that mine was a vintage Coach bag just like hers, and to my surprise I opened the bad and there it was. I could have died happy there. A big change for the fall time. I have died my hair Ginger. I say ginger because red, and orange, make me think of Haley Williams, not that there is anything wrong with Paramore (big fan🙋🏼🙈) but I was going more for ‘girl from Scotland’. I feel it’s a great choice for autumn, and strangely, I feel like me. Like who I am supposed to be. I haven’t known anything else other than blonde my whole life, so it was a hard change, and I will miss my blonde hair, and I’m sure I’ll come around full circle once more, but for now I am so excited to journey through life with this color, and transition to brown, and maybe even black. Well that is all for now, hope you enjoyed this little read/ autumn update.

Spring Styles pt. 1

I’ve been keeping my eye out for trends that are big this season, and the style that I keep seeing is Off the Shoulder Tops. I’m loving this trend, not gonna lie, I’ve bought a few too many ots tops already. My current fave top is from the brand Iris. It is a gorgeous light mustard yellow, and is rouched and stretchy at the top and free flowing at the bottom. It has a adorable trim around the fabric of the upper section that hangs off the shoulders and is all around so Stylish. I went out for a day trip to my city and snapped a few pics! I paired my top with a pair of Boyfriend jeans from American Eagle, and a cute pair of gladiator styled nude sandals with gold detailing from Charming Charlie’s. I Accessorized my outfit with my cute Blush toned Chloe-Inspired bag from Perfect Image New York, and Vintage 70’s Orange aviators from Dr. Peepers.

Stay Stylish,

New Hair, New Family, New, New, New!!!

So recently, I decided to hop out of my seasonal creativity rut, do something drastic. I decided to go lighter for spring, but way lighter. I am now a full platinum blonde, and a force to be reckoned with. And also recently upon discovery that I have sister, I decided to contact her. We have been talking and she’s pretty much the best person in the world, though I may be biased. She’s coming down in approximately a week to visit for spring break and we have been planning everything that we’re going to do together. We might’ve thrown in a little San Francisco trip in Santa Cruz trip while she’s down here, and I can’t wait to blog about them. She is a coffee lover like me, with an eclectic music taste and an enthusiast of photography and fashion. I wish I could explain, what it feels like to grow up a little with child and how your life seems to come together and that missing puzzle piece is filled, would you find out that you have a long lost sister. I can’t, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to describe the feelings I have felt, & the pure joy in my heart this last month. Also not to mention, I have an excuse to go down to Santa Barbara anytime now.

Stay Stylish,

#OOTD: Model Off Duty

Lazy Sundays don’t necessarily have to mean not put together. More often then not when I am going out but don’t want to completely dress up, I opt for the effortlessly stylish, Model Off Duty look. I pulled some major Style Inspo from a few different pictures online, but narrowed it down to two of models, Alyssa Miller, and Kendall Jenner. I threw together this Comfy & Chic outfit, for a day about the city. I went for a monochromatic look of all black and a pair of white nikes for some contrast.

Result:

Shirt: “Love Me Harder” Ariana Grande 2015 Tour Shirt

Cardigan: Black American Eagle Cardigan

Jeans: Ripped Black Old Navy Cropped Ankle Jeans

Shoes: White Nike Roshes


Hope you enjoyed the read.

Get To Know Me ❤ 10 Facts

I will be writing a lot on this blog so I figured you guys should get to know me a little bit. Let’s jump right into it.

1. I’m vegetarian
It’s a choice I made simply because I don’t really eat meat that much and when I do I don’t really enjoy it so I just figured I would cut it out of my diet completely, however I do eat cheese, dairy and things like that. Coincidentally not milk Ive just always preferred almond milk.

2. I’m a jack of all trades?

When I was younger I took pretty much every dance under the sun, and have saying my whole life. At one point I even did musical theater, that combines the two. I’ve always had a passion for cooking and love coming up with the recipes from simple to gourmet. I did cheer for four years and gymnastics for two. I’m currently doing yoga and looking into starting boxing for strength training. I have yet to, but I’m really interested in trying acting, because I love how people can become a whole other person for the entertainment of the world.

3. I am German

I am not from Germany, but my Great great grandparents came here from Germany. I’m in the process of learning German and working to keep the culture and the traditions alive in my family. I’ve worked with my family to re-create classic German recipes and have researched many different German holidays. I can’t wait to travel there someday.

4. I lived in England

When I was younger my mom and I moved with her husband to his home in England and we lived there for 6 months to a year. Though I was about four, it was such a big journey that most of it stayed in my memory. I still remember the town we lived in and every detail of the house. I went to kindergarten there and was actually ambidextrous, but unfortunately when we got back to the states, The kindergarten I went to in California made me pick a hand.

5. I’m a lefty

Like I was saying when we got back to California my school required that I choose only one hand to write with and I guess for me that was my left hand. It’s really not different from right-handed people except the frustration of living in a right-hand world. Mugs are struggle because the handles are always on the right side, and also whenever I write in standard format from left to right my hand smudges the ink and pencil lead. Ugh, The struggle.

6. I live in California

I honestly couldn’t of picked a better state. Though there’s many other states that I want to visit and possibly move to, California will always be home. Can’t complain about the sunshine and the palm trees. Also the constant 77° year-round. Not to mention it’s the birthplace of some of the greatest rap artists known.

7. I’m addicted to Old school rap

I’ll admit it’s a problem. I’ve got iTunes albums, CDs, and a record or two from NWA, ice cube, Snoop Dogg, Tupac and a few others with the exception of some New Age rappers like Kendrick Lamar, YG, and E-40, because they’ve got that same Old school style.

8. I am obsessed with writing

I realize I should probably start a blog when my love for fashion and my love for writing both became apparent. Blogging is great because you can combine the two and take off running. I didn’t start a blog for a long time because I thought that the writing portion would be hard for me but it’s just talking, and speaking my mind. I mean I’ve always had an A+ in English.

9. I love Minimalism

Minimalism is great because it is so simple. White, black, gray, all colors I think of when I think of minimalism. To me minimalism represents a clean, fresh space, and for me that helps inspire me and come up with new ideas.

10. I want to work with athletes

I want to major in kinesiology with a minor in sports medicine. If you don’t know what that’s about, to break it down, when you were on the sidelines of any sporting event and you see a player get hurt the doctor that tends to themand sees them off the field for pain management, prescriptions, physical therapy, and advice, that is what a doctor in sports medicine does.

Stay Stylish,
