OOTD: The Skirt Shirt



Top: Forever21 | Jeans: Zara | Belt: Urban Outfitters | Socks: Berkshire | Shoes: Steve Madden | Bag: Urban Outfitters from Crossroads | Jacket: Zara

Yes – I went there. I took this eensie weensie bodycon skirt and made it a tube top. I’ve been feeling the hipster-spice girl vibe lately. I practically wear these Berkshire Anklet Socks with everything. Lipton Publicity provided me with a number of pairs as a road test sampling – I can’t get enough! They are so soft, airy and comfortable. They’re the perfect accessory for these Steve Madden loafers!

scars

Time is mocking me.
It’s looking down on me, laughing
Grinning in his power to race through happiness
And slow churn the burns of sorrow.
I pray to you every night, Time
Please erase him from me.

-I didn’t know his burns would scar

like cigarettes

this coffee tastes like cigarettes.
it reminds me of our mornings
tangled in bed
ashes burning
smoke churning.
i’d look at you
through rays of grey
the first sunshine
of the day
peeking through
and over you.

this coffee tastes like cigarettes.
it reminds me of the times
that we bled.

You are right 

i knew what love was then
i had felt it
i had flown
grown
melted
and burned in it

and while every love
was different
they were all the same
compared to you
you see
they were all wrong
and you
are right

OOTD: Tenth Street…

Hat: Tenth Street Hats | Jacket: H&M [ 1/2 ] | Sweater: Zara | Jeans: Missguided | Booties: Aldo

 

Okay, it’s true – fisherman caps are my new obsession. I’ve always been known as “The Hat Girl”. Since I was a baby I’ve been wearing hats of all sorts, so when I saw this chic cap from Tenth Street Hats I had to have it. The same goes with this cozy teddy bear jacket I scored for 50% off at H&M (who needs a purse when your pockets are this big!?). All about dem steals!

i am not broken

I found home in myself.
And when I did that, nothing else mattered. My pains ached a little less. My walls deteriorated. My heart had seeded flowers.
I found home in myself.
And when I did that, everything else mattered. My pains were not sadness and anger, they were growth. My vulnerability was a blessing. My heart did not fear blooming.

Checkered Casual…

Top: Forever21 | Joggers: Forever21 | Loafers: Steve Madden [ 1 / 2 ] |

Sunnies: GiantVintage | Earrings: H&M | Bag: Urban Outfitters [thrifted] |

Jacket: Zara Man [I stole this from my boyfriend mwuahaha ]

 

The Mersey Grunge

Jacket: Vintage | Shirt: Emma & Sam | Boots: H&M | Bag: Michael Kors [similar]

I will admit – I over wear this jacket. You could say our bond is like that of a squirrel with nuts in winter  – unbreakable (I have no idea where that analogy came from). This was my grandfathers jacket from back in the 50s when he served in the army. Pretty neat, right? Most people are pretty surprised by that. I’ve managed to make it into a vintage fashion statement shocker and match it with just about everything. The rest was history!

p.s. – the first day I wore these tights I tore a hole in them (typical), and so instead of throwing them away, I tore more! Now I have a sick nasty pair of badass punk tights.
