casual mondays

hello again friends! another style post comin' atcha... BOOM!


i felt like this background was too busy for outfit pictures, but i guess it does create a cool effect. it certainly screams "BROOKLYNNN!!!!" in a way that only a graffiti'ed wall could...

i LOVED these flats from the moment i saw them. that crazy pattern... yes, please. it seems so unique... i don't think i've ever had patterned shoes before!

even though it was a pretty cold day, i really wanted to wear them. so i had to also wear socks. naturally, i kept getting that "sandal-with-socks" look, no matter what i put on.

i was about to scrap the whole idea... then i thought "if i'm doing sandal-socks, might as well go all the way." i dug out these patterned beauties, and the rest is history... i actually think they go quite well together!

  11. That first graffiti wall is awesome. It looks like you need to record a rap music video in front of that wall.

    P.S. You'll also need a boombox.

  14. Very cute, the graffiti is kind of the perfect backdrop. I am digging the sandals + socks look. It totally works with the cute patterned socks.

  15. I try not to have too busy of a background for outfit photos, myself but sometimes it's unavoidable and some things are super neat looking, so oh well. I think yours totally worked out. Also, that shoe and sock combination is ridiculously cute. :)

  16. Oh snap darling, you have me wanting those shoes...so so cute and so so up my alley. I love how you paired the scarf with that blouse, I actually thought it was attached at first - like a pussybow. Nonetheless, it is perfect! Gosh you make casual look incredibly awesome:)
