DENIM ON DENIM


Happy Sunday! It's been such a long week for me and I'm finally finding the time to do an outfit post. I thought I'd let you guys know that I finally bought an external hard-drive so I can empty out my computer and hopefully it will function normally, which means MORE BLOG POSTS! (:

Now on to today's outfit . . .



So today's outfit is a bit of a blast from the past with these denim overalls I thrifted and cut into a top, a style recently seen on Rihanna. It turns out that the denim matched perfectly with these denim shorts I also picked up at a thrift shop, so I paired them with a purple tank and my navy blue Converse to keep the laid-back look. My hair was pin-up inspired; I curled it and did a side french braid (details in earlier post: Spiked), and tied a bandana on to complete it. Cutting my overalls into a top was a very risky chance I was taking, but I ended up being very happy with the results. I like to reconstruct things into something new and different and this top is definitely different. That's one of the most important things about style, not to be afraid to think out of the box sometimes and just go for it! If you feel good about it, you'll look good in it(:

THE BLUES

Hey loves!  I came across this really cool spot down by the water with a beautiful view of Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Verrazano bridge. Being born and raised in NYC, you kind of forget what a beautiful place it is and take the simple things for granted that many people travel across the world to see. This was an amazing place to shoot and the photos really captured the simplicity that most people don't get to see in NYC.


Top: Thrift store | Shorts & Bag: F21 | Shoes: (Shop similar) Urban Outfitters

I was super excited to style this top I picked up form the thrift shop a few weeks ago. When I bought it, my friends were making fun of me because they claimed it looked like a "granny shirt". The old me would've put it back on the rack after that, but I've learned to go with what I like when it comes to clothes since everyone has a different style, and I'm the one wearing it anyway. Plus, it actually turned out to be one of my favorite shirts!

I paired the blouse with a pair of minty teal laced shorts to bring out the subtle teal colors in the shirt. These shorts are one of my faves because they're super trendy and comfortable. They're also very complimenting to the body. I kept it neutral with brown gladiator sandals and a tan floral bag. I paired this gold multi-chain necklace with these super cute gold earrings I bought at a thrift shop. I love mixing vintage with modern and I think this outfit really embodied that. 

XO,
Brittany
