uniform of spring. day two-hundred-thirty-one.

IMG_6867
Spring and Fall are the two greatest seasons ever. Yes summer is awesome because of the beach and the sun, and winter is cool for about 7 seconds playing in the snow and drinking hot chocolate but Spring and Fall are fashions best. Colors can be more bold and layering can get just out of control. For me spring means lots of layers. Michigan weather varies in the spring from snowing one minute to sunshiney and warm the next so having many layers is key. My spring uniform usually consists of some kind of jacket/blazer over some kind of shirt combination. Maybe a button up? A tshirt? A sweater? Or all at once. 

Spring and Fall also mean lots of colors. This blue/black/grey outfit just points to how hard it is to transition into spring colors when its still dreary outside. However playing with print mixing and textures is always a great alternative to bold spring colors and if I am not playing with colors it is usually prints and textures instead. This jacket has so many textures, clear vinyl pockets, jean material and even an almost leather piece on the back. Paired with my DIY polka-dot pants and a screen-printed tee this is my classic go to look. Also because I have secretly wanted to be goth/punk my whole life I adore pairing these soft looks with chunky Jeffrey Campbell spiked Litas and my studded belt. And voila there you have it my spring uniform is born. Never predictable but always fun.

typical blazer. day two-hundred-thirty.

IMG_6853
Typical.


A blazer? A tshirt? Some pantalones? And Shoes? Predictable!!!!!

Yes that is right. This is part of my go-to uniform in life. Layer it up. Zazz it up. Play it down. I love contrasting fabrics, textures and colors. I also like to take one idea and go allll the way with it. Or pair exactly what you wouldn't expect. But what would you expect from me? Nothing you could expect!!! Except maybe a typical blazer.

tribal and stripes. day two-hundred-twenty-eight.

IMG_9742
winter has just kept on coming so sunny and I kept going indoors for our photo-meetups. I love the old piano factory in Grand Haven. Such a cool location with this really old wood floors and fun sounds echoing through the halls. I totally went 80s with this vibe and even attempted to curl up my hair. Its a little funky and I have like a million ideas on how to change it up in the future but thats whatcha get. Don't you just love these high-waisted denim pants? I am obsessed...just wait until you see the jacket they came with....just crazy. Gotta figure out how to wear it still though. Also I got bored and added some fun filters to the photos ;)

fringy sweater. day two-hundred-twenty-seven.

IMG_6798
This sweater is oh-so-80's and makes me oh-so-happy!!!! I finally did something different with my hair pulling it up into a do wacka do. Mostly because I 'didn't shower' but I got all sorts of compliments so dang maybe I should shower less (minus the smelly part seems legit to me..). My doggies helped a lot with this shoot...sometimes they are so helpful. There are all sorts of good ground smells now that things are springin so I think that drives most of what they do outdoors now.
