Not Your Standard

I'll take a "dress down" situation over a "dress up" one any day of the week, but with the holidays around the corner, I can't help but get excited for all the parties coming up— and the chance to get dressed up for them. While normally I'd go for a flirty frock, this year I'm really digging the sleek, sophisticated, and even edgy vibes of a body-con midi in a sea of the standard sequins, metallics, and voluminous silhouettes. Paired with equally edgy gunmetal jewels (which I can't get enough of at the moment) and perhaps a black mani and vampy lip, you have a look that's not your standard.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Finally posting my last set of photos from Paris! These were taken on one of our last days there— we had planned to visit Palais de Tokyo, but upon arriving, found out that it was closed in preparation for the next season's exhibits. Probably one of the biggest disappointments of the trip considering I've never been, and we were both excited to check it out, but the park right across the street was a nice consolation, and we enjoyed the view with a box of macarons.

On another note, I'm so happy to be featured on Cosabella today! Read more and shop my picks here.

Varsity

Temperatures are dropping and I'm reaching for these leggings more and more (as evidenced by some of my recent posts)— I knew they would be a staple when I bought them, but I think I underestimated just how much I would be wearing them in any given week (three times is a normal amount, right?). Kept it simple for this look, focusing on the extra low neckline and varsity vibes of this sweater paired with the badass zipper detail on these boots
