Mock Turtleneck Season is Here!

I’m convinced that 75% of my winter wardrobe is mock turtlenecks… I think I have a problem. (A good problem!)

I got this adorable mock turtleneck from Madewell. Of course, we all know the quality is incredible! It’s so warm, not itchy, and the tortoise-shell buttons are such a cute detail for the sides! Sadly they don’t have this color left on the website, but they may still have them in stores. If not, I would definitely check out these close cousins of my sweater from Free People, Forever 21, and the navy blue version of my sweater from Madewell.

My jeans are from Free People! They are super stretchy and comfortable, and I love the high waist. Free People’s denim is high quality and always keeps its shape. My Urban Found earrings are a perfect detail to add on and give the outfit a nice, metallic flare!

Last but not least, I’m in LOVE with these boots! They’re from Mango, which is now probably one of my favorite companies to buy shoes from. They’re high quality leather and so comfortable for their height. Sadly they sold out of the boots I’m wearing, but I found a very close replica of them on Sam Edelman, which is another one of my favorite shoe brands! They always have extremely comfortable shoes that are funky and high quality.

Because it’s after Christmas, all of these companies are having their after Christmas sales! I would highly recommend swinging by these websites to check out what they have on sale.

I don’t know about you, but I’m gonna go spend some time with my fam and eat some home-made cheesecake! Christmastime is for being with family, am I right??? I hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas season and as always, thank you for reading!

What I Wore: New Orleans Outfit #3

Hello I’m finally back! It’s been a busy week… finals are here and I have six more days of undergrad… yikes! Thankfully the lack of classes gives me some time to catch up on a little writing!

This is one of my favorite outfits of that I’ve put together for the Spring. It’s so casual and easily cute at the same time. I have worn it so much already and I’ve only had it together for a month!

My top is from Free People and I LOVE the texture. This olive/brown color is a weird color that works well with my skin tone and it’s honestly one of my favorite colors. I got it at JB & Me, but you can get in other colors online (they were out of green:(  ).

My jeans are from The Gap Outlets, and I love how stretchy and comfy they are! I wear them with so many different outfits and they are a great basic piece to have in your closet.

Lastly, my shoes are from Nordstrom Rack and they are the brand Sam Elderman. I’ve been looking for funky white loafers and I was so pumped when I saw these!

That’s all I’ve got for today folks! For all you college kids, I’m sending lots of encouragement your way! This is a stressful time of the year, but I know you can do it!

What I Wore: Outfit #2 in New Orleans

Hello everyone, it’s finally spring! It feels surreal to walk around without a coat on. It’s so beautiful out that I’ve had the urge to go to the beach and get ice cream multiple times this week, can’t deny it any longer!

With warmer weather comes lots of Spring fashion! This is one of my favorite outfits I wore in New Orleans. It was super comfortable and I was able to wear it while I took a cemetery tour and walk all over the French Quarter! It had the perfect lightness to keep me cool, but just enough protection from getting too much sun.

My top is a passed on vintage blouse from my aunt. It’s 100% silk and I absolutely love it because it’s so soft and light! The colors are super fun as well. It kind of reminds me of Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog!

My tank top is also passed on vintage from my aunt, but I found a very similar version on Lulus that I love! (It’s Free People, of course.)

My jeans are from the Gap Outlet, and they are so stretchy and comfy. The high waist is such a cute look with a longer shirt or with something you can partially tuck in.

I got my sunglasses from The Trashy Diva, a vintage inspired boutique store in the French Quarter. I loved their glasses and I had to get this pair!

Lastly, my shoes are the brand Sam Elderman and I got them from Nordstrom Rack! Nordstrom’s shoes are always so cute and I could honestly spend hours in there trying things on! If you ever need a new pair of shoes before you go on vacation, Nordstrom Rack is the place to look.

I’ve linked very similar clothing pieces at the bottom to get the same look as the one I’ve put together in my post.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful spring weather and you’re looking forward to summer as much as I am! Have an incredible day!

What I Wore: Outfit #1 in New Orleans

Hey it’s ya girl, back on the fashion grind! This was one of my fave outfits to wear in New Orleans because it was the perfect mixture of casual, funky, and classy. Not only did it check off all my fashion requirements, but it was so comfy! I found my jeans at Urban Found, which is a smaller West Michigan company, but I found a similar pair from Free People here that I think is so so cute!

My top is from Madewell (where else do I shop?) but I bought it at Nordstrom Rack. Nordstrom Rack has had some great Madewell tops and pants lately, so I definitely recommend checking it out.

My shoes are from Old Navy and I LOVE them! I’ve been looking for chunky sandals like this for awhile and these were exactly what I was looking for! Honestly, I’ve never shopped much at Old Navy, but their spring and summer pieces are very fun, hip, and artsy. Not to mention, it’s very reasonably priced.

As always, I hope you had fun checking this outfit out and I’m so pumped for the warm weather to reach the north! Hang in there, it’s coming!

Thermal Season

Yay, I am so glad to be back and writing about fashion again! My life has been SUPER crazy in the mixture of auditions and performances, and it feels good to have a bit of down time now.

I pulled out my thermal shirt because I love the texture of it, and it’s great to layer under sweaters or anything bulky! This thermal in particular is fun because of it’s bell sleeves and it flows a lot, making it so comfy to wear! My top is from Free People, and I got it from Nordstrom Rack, but they still have it in other stores too!

 

My bralette is from Aerie, and it is SO comfortable and affordable! They look so cute under basically any top. I love Aerie bralettes and the company in general because they support women of every race, body type, and include beautiful ladies in wheel chairs. I love supporting companies that support everyone, not just the stereotypical model. Brynne-53.jpg

My pants are from Francesca’s, but they are out of stock. I love the look of these pants, but in all honesty they’re not super stretchy besides the waist, which overstretched and won’t go back to where it was. I linked a pair of American Eagle camo pants I found because they’re soooo cute, on sale, and American Eagle jeans are so stretchy and always stay in the same size they were made.

My shoes are from the brand Wolverine. I got them at Nordstrom Rack which sells discounted Wolverine boots from time to time because they are initially very expensive. They don’t have the boots I bought anymore, but I’ve linked a similar pair from DSW below that are just as cute!

My earrings were a gift from my birthday, but you can find gold hoop earrings just about anywhere! Personally, I love Madewell jewelry so I linked their hoop earrings at the bottom because they are SO cute!

Lastly, my necklace is from Lucky Brand, but I got them when TJ Maxx was selling their jewelry for a short period of time. I found a beautiful feather necklace on Etsy that’s even more affordable than mine and is so pretty.

As always, I hope you have a wonderful day, stay warm, and cross your fingers for Spring weather to come soon!

Exploring Downtown Chicago

I love going into Chicago to spend time with people I care about! My school does a Chicago trip once every year where you can spend the entire day in the city to explore and it’s always so fun. This year I decided to put the perfect outfit together to do a little sight seeing!

My top is from Spring Sweet, a cute boutique in downtown Holland, MI. There are some cute and similar shirts at Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters that are so adorable!

My jeans are from the Gap Outlets and are wonderful to wear with most of my outfits, but you can find a similar pair for a good price at H&M and ASOS.

I got my ankle boots from TJ Maxx and they’re from the brand Clarks. The most similar pair of shoes I’ve found is from DSW and the shoes are Lucky Brand! They are so cute and you could wear them with anything!

My necklace is also from Spring Sweet and although they don’t have it on their website, I found a cute second option from Madewell that’s simple and classy.

Lastly, my beret is from a New York City street vendor when I was 11 years old! I haven’t worn this beret in years but as berets have come back in style, I dug it out from the bottom of my closet! You can find berets just about anywhere, and some of my favorites are from Free People and Madewell.

I had such a fun time feeling chic and walking through the city! Luckily it was such a beautiful day out that I barely needed my jacket to enjoy the city!
