1.29.2014

So I guess now would be the most fitting and appropriate time to whip out my embarassing finger wag and start singing "I'm back! Back in the New York Groove" like that super-hip Bob Saget-wannabe dad (you know what I'm talking about!). Hopping onto an overly stuffy airplane ride that felt as congested as my body burrowed under thick layers definitely did not prepare me for the weather shock. Sure, that frosty sparkling blanket of snow masking the ugly counterparts of the city can seem incredibly breathtaking. But after the whole Christmas craze, it feels ill-fitting to still see so much snow--Anna, I totally know how you feel in Frozen.  

I blame my California upbringing but since I've returned, I've had a titanic struggle of finding stylish clothes for my first day of classes (hello Spring semester!). If only I went to some Midwest university where I could slouch on a jet black, marshmallow-esque North Face jacket and some passé Uggs. 

After receiving a pleasantly surprising call from my cousin, I knew I had to get back into blogging again and not completely abandon it--I learned my lesson (thanks, Ash!). So with that said, here's some fresh inspiration that will rejuvenate the tiresome weather and time of year that's synonymous to dark hues and depressingly bland styling choices that rules comfort way higher than fashion. Yes, fashion should be sister to comfort but when you're trudging around the cloudy weather with a mundane puffer coat and stale sweaters, you need some fashion enlightenment to refreshen your outlook. 

Although my color palette for this inspiration is very basic and neutral, the silhouettes and simplistic styling can create waves across the trite winter-fashion pool--or in this case, ice skating rink (bear with me on my tasteless puns). I've had a recent obsession with bright, clean lighting when it comes to photos and that added color of mossy, artichoke greens juxtaposing against brilliant whites and somber blacks. You could say it cleverly hints at my subconscious, underlying desire for spring to come and more of a lively presence. 

Hastily strutting through retail stores for the ubiquitous January sales with my distressed mom made me realize the overlapping trend of boyfriend jeans and overalls. For me, finding the perfect dose of distressed refinement was the ultimate task of the day I wanted to proudly check off my list of necessary clothing. They are staples that every girl should have in their wardrobe! So after visiting Topshop, Nordstrom, GAP, F21, Urban Outfitters, and H&M and fingering through racks of denim with a melange of unique names for Boyfriend Jeans, I found an affordable pair and breathed a sigh of relief.

What I love about boyfriend jeans are that they are so comfortable--even possibly bed-comfy--while still preserving that vintage air of effortlessness without looking tired. Tuck in your basic striped top or plop into your coveted, aged booties for a go-to chic look! Overalls can be a little trickier to style since it can be reminiscent of that farmer, pig-tail braided child. So when wearing overalls, make sure to style it with a piece that gives off a more luxe feeling and don't be afraid to add some lively prints and layered accessories to make it more feminine. I personally adore overall shorts more than overall jeans. Which do you like more?
