Turtlenecks and Weird Sleeves

Hey guys,

Hope everyone is enjoying their school break and the holidays.  Most of my inspiration comes from iconic fashion eras, and street style from places like New York, Paris, Italy, and Los Angeles. One day while browsing Pinterest I found pictures of the newest Victoria Secret model Taylor Hill. She was wearing an oversized sweater similar to this one with leggings and sneakers.

Naturally I went on the hunt for a similar sweater, and had no luck. Then one day casually shopping, my favorite store (Forever 21) came through and I found it. This is a sweater, so technically it’s not supposed to be worn as dress, but fashion rules are meant to be broken.  To solve that little issue and make it acceptable I bought a size larger than what I usually wear.

Although she wore it super cute with the sneakers and leggings, it’s not my personal style. I decided to pair the sweater with laced up boots and biker shorts under. Cool story I was eyeing these boots on the Forever 21 website since June, and just was too lazy to buy them. The same day I found this sweater, the boots were also there and I had a That’s so Raven vision moment when I saw this put together put together in the future.

My favorite accessory lately has been this leather backpack from Target with gold accents. I bought this back in September when I went to the Made in America festival. At first I bought it solely for the festival, but now I wear it every day. It’s so easy to wear and carry all of my stuff. 

Many people forget that hair can either make or break and outfit. I wanted the sole focus of this outfit to be the sweater. So I knew that if I had my hair it out, it would take away from it, so opted for the tucked in hair trend that has been spotted in many runways last season. To me this hair gave the outfit and element of surprise and edge. 

That's all of for this weeks style post, remember that fashion is fun especially because you can break rules and make it your own by adding personal touches to each outfit. 

Hope this served as some inspiration and that you call have a safe and happy holidays. Thank you for reading
