City Tees

Sorry I haven't posted very often this month! I've been super busy with schoolwork and I just started playing tennis for my school team so I haven't had much time to sit down and write out a full blog post or take any OOTD pictures. Hopefully I will get back on track and shoot some outfits this weekend for you all. I need the snow to melt first though so I can show off my new gladiator heeled sandals :)

I've been focusing on Polyvore lately in my spare time opposed to blogging, and I have found out that I love graphic tees with the names of famous cities on them - Paris, New York, Berlin, Milan, London... Maybe it's because I have extreme wanderlust or I'm ready for t-shirt weather! Whatever it is, here are some outfits that I've compiled with some of my favorite city tees. I pair them with dungarees or fun shorts and heeled sandals and slip ons mostly, plus a great pair of sunnies. Spring can't come soon enough!

Style Crush: Chiara Ferragni

It's about that time for another Style Crush post!

Lately I've been searching 'Chiara Ferragni street style' on Google and tumblr more than I'd like to admit... The Italian founder and blogger of The Blonde Salad is easily one of the most influential style figures in the industry today.

Effortlessly mixing designers together into complete unique looks, Chiara has inspired me and thousands of others. She has definitely made my love for Kenzo, Balenciaga, Chanel, and Burberry grow, along with my designer wish list. 

Plus she is a very talented designer. Her new shoe collection with Steve Madden is flawless, her old one with Luisa Via Roma still adorable, and Caia jewels is absolute perfection.

Definitely going to continue checking her tag on tumblr... Below are some of my favorite looks from her.

Virtual Dreams

Here are some items that I've been coveting these past few weeks and have made frequent appearances in my Polyvore sets. It's very fun to go through my sets and see which items that I use over and over again, but also go through my items and search for hidden items that I should be using more often! Styles come back and go away, and you never know if pieces that you thought you hated will seem amazing in a few months. It's a great way to shop too - all your favorite items are in one place! You can compare them in draft sets and go directly to the item's website. (Plus Polyvore emails you when the items you like are on sale!)

These items below are just a few of the many that I hope to purchase or search for less expensive similars. My top two are definitely the ASOS leather look (hehe blog name) playsuit and Zara mini city bag. They go perfectly together too!

If only every item you like on Polyvore magically appeared in your closet... But for now, I will have to stick to using Polyvore as my virtual dream closet.

Black & Blue

I've been loving the color combination of black and various shades blue lately. I think those colors are going to end up making my spring wardrobe. Black and blue doesn't have to be overly simple and boring though. Here are some outfits that I made on Polyvore to prove my point :)

Pop of Tartan

Top: Ralph Lauren / Skort: Ebay / Jacket: Forever21 / Tights: Zara / Shoes: Topshop

Happy Friday! I've been feeling so lazy this week and wearing simple ensembles of jeans and sweaters and converse, but today I decided to dress up a little bit. I brought my Ebay skort back out and paired it with my tartan Ralph Lauren top. I also haven't worn my F21 bomber jacket in a while (I've forgotten how amazing it is!).

I hope you all have an amazing weekend :) Shop this look below!

Designer Dreams: Bags

For a blog post :)

Here is my current designer bag wish list! It was difficult narrowing it down, even to twelve bags. Even more difficult was ranking them. Choosing the first two was easy (I mean... It's Chanel!), but after that I was torn. Here is what I came up with in the end, and what is probably subject to change in the near future (maybe even in a few minutes).

  1. Chanel 2.55
  2. Chanel Boy
  3. Mulberry Alexa
  4. Givenchy Antigona (black)
  5. Rebecca Minkoff M.A.B.
  6. Alexander Wang Rockie
  7. Mulberry Effie
  8. Alexander Wang Rocco
  9. Proenza Schouleur PS11
  10. 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli
  11. Valentino Rockstud
  12. Givenchy Antigona (grey)
Shop the bags below! Which one is your favorite?

Where is Spring?

Blouse: H&M / Skirt: H&M / Jacket: ABS / Tights: Zara / Shoes: Topshop

I tried to be a bit more "springy" today with my scuba skirt and denim jacket, but I was shivering during this whole photo shoot. Snow is still on the ground and the temperature is still below freezing. I guess my outfits can only be springy on Polyvore...

Shop the look below!
