girl at the rock show

TGIF chicpeas! i dont know about you, but it’s taken me a lot of angry teen rock music to get through this week, especially Blink 182’s take off your pants and jacket album, which has been on heavy rotation (do it- you’ll feel better).

band tees have made a big comeback in street style of late, as you can see from the bloggerinas below. as a result, i’ve been inspired to edge up my typically conservative style and make it a little more ‘rock and roll’ by incorporating a faded tee, leather and some studs. try some for yourself, get angsty, and and prepare to party all weekend long…

1– leather jacket 2–cat eye shades 3– choker 4– cherry tee (another great option)

5– studded backpack  6– military jacket 7– sleek sneaks 8– crystal shades 9– rainbow hoops

10– beats headphones  11– leather pants 12–vegan leather skirt 13– moto boots

14– waistless denim  15– embellished crossbody 16– faded logo tee 17– shirred tank

 

 

back to school

two days of much needed girl time in DC this weekend led to the usual discussions of jobs, puppies, weddings, workouts, and of course– fash-shunnnn. the unanimous decision on fall’s ‘must have’ shopping list? a denim skirt. let’s review…

to avoid a full throwback to our middle school A&F mini days, look for one that’s 60’s inspired, dark colored and tailored. i’ve rounded up a plethora of inexpensive options out there– a pocketed madewell and nearly identical jcrew version, a wrap style from asos, topshop, snap front by rag & bone jean and one marked down at club monaco. perfect with a striped t-shirt half tucked for now, and worn under an oversized fluffy sweater once the real chill sets in. ammmirightttt?!
