Look: I hate everyone upon this cursed earth

I was in Nashville this weekend for a girls trip with Kiley and Shannon. I was seeing if there was any concerts on Saturday or Sunday we’d want to see and I saw that SAY ANYTHING was playing! How did we luck out!? Here’s my rocker chic outfit for the night. I had a random guy on the street tell me that I looked like a rockstar, which is exactly what I’m usually going for.

My Wardrobe Staples

My Wardrobe Staples

Everyone has their signature staples to their wardrobe and I thought I’d share mine! I have tons of variations of what’s listed, but this gives you the basic idea. I definitely have a lot of black items in my wardrobe and tend to migrate towards darker colors, like maroon, a lot. I have a lot of jeweltone things, too, but I wanted to keep this to 10 items. It’s easy to make sure you have plenty of things that go together if you stick to a sort of uniform, ya know?

I guess I’d describe my style as rocker-casual, while sometimes dipping into badass when I feel like it. I like to be comfortable, always. Even my “sexy” clothes are still comfortable and make me feel good to wear.

The Staples:

  1. Motorcycle Jacket – my true go-to. You can truly throw a motorcycle jacket on over anything.
  2. Combat Boots – comfy and practical if it’s raining or snowing
  3. Moccasins – comfortable and great with jeans, shorts, and skirts
  4. Skinny Jeans – do I need to say more?
  5. V Neck – dress it up, dress it down. You can’t go wrong.
  6. Fringe Jacket – I wear jackets and cardigans a lot, but a black fringe number like this is my favorite.
  7. Flannel Shirt – they’re warm and cute.
  8. Lita – when you feel like dressing up, you need a badass heel to go with it.
  9. Mini Skirt – a mini and/or pencil skirt comes in handy for dressing up or down.
  10. Crop Top – great in the summer or when you’re feeling yourself and want to show a little skin.

I’d love to know YOUR wardrobe staples. Comment below!

Last night I saw and photographed In This Moment again at Limelight Eventplex. I cannot wait to edit the photos, they’re like a concert photographer’s wet dream. I’m a big fan, too, so I HAD to “become the show” again. I actually had all of this prior to the show haha. I probably wouldn’t normally wear it all together, but it sure worked for my dark Big Bad Wolf inspiration. I tried to duplicate her awesome make up look and everything.

The show itself was amazing. They changed it up and added some new choreography and costumes since last time they came through in the fall. I’m a little bummed that I didn’t get to say hi to Maria this time, but it was getting late on a Sunday and I had work at 8am the next day, so I had to get home to my bed. :P

StitchFix #1

I have officially received my first StitchFix! What is StitchFix? It’s a nifty styling website where you take a quiz, share your tastes (including your pinterest boards) and a stylist picks out 5 items and ship them right to your door. You can send back whatever you don’t want and will only be charged the $20 stylist fee if you send everything back. If you keep everything, you get 25% off your whole order. Sounds cool right? I’m definitely at a point in my life where I’d love to start investing in quality pieces. I’m SOOOO guilty of getting meh clothing on sale simply because it was on sale. I accumulate way too many clothes due to it.

Anyways, my first StitchFix came! I was super excited to see what they sent me! *Note, I am paying for StitchFix and sharing my thoughts on it.* I received 3 shirts, a pair of skinny jeans, and a necklace. Below are photos of all the items (I wore the skinny jeans for all the tops).

Okay, I’ll admit, each item cost way more than what I’d usually spend, besides maybe the necklace. I’m seriously the Queen of Clearance. I decided to try each on and really get a feel for it. All the items felt amazing and I could tell were much higher quality than most items in my possession. My favorite was the skinny jeans. My word, they are so soft! I could sleep in them! They fit like a glove but don’t squeeze. I knew I’d be keeping those. The teal shirt and necklace were close runner ups. The shirt is soft as well and very versatile. The studded shirt is right up my alley, too, especially for work. The paisley top was my least favorite. I would’ve sent that one back except I’d pay more for the other stuff if I did if I lost the 25% discount. It’s not awful, just not quite my dig. I can still incorporate it into my style easily, though.

I have my fixes scheduled for every other month. I think by doing this and having it to look forward to, I can really try to cut down on shopping at the clearance aisle. Seriously, it can be a problem. I do find some amazing deals, but a lot of stuff I just don’t NEED. They also sent a little cheat sheet card for each item with some tips on how to wear it and photos of example outfits. I’m loving StitchFix so far! You should try it out, too!
