Fossil Memoir Novel Flap bag and Fossil Disc Stud earrings, RD Style coat, Forever 21 skirt and plaid, Miisto x Urban Outfitters shoes, H&M beanie
Autumn just doesn't feel right without a little grunge influence thrown in. It brings back that feeling of back-to-school camaraderie and distinguished teenage rebellion. And that's when the plaid magically appears around my waist. And every color imaginable in the form of ribbed beanies magically appear on my head. I wanted a way to toughen up these pretty and preppy Fossil accessories in a way that would have made Kurt Cobain proud and maybe dedicate a song to me. How sweet is the tone of this coral-peach messenger bag? A pretty springtime hue that works during all seasons as a little color palette refresher, especially against darker, grungier hues.
As for the earrings, I really can't stop wearing them. To me, earrings are quite similar to lingerie. Not everyone can see them, since my hair is always down, but it's nice to know that they are there. These little Fossil floral studs are kind of like my little secret. Hush hush.
What this outfit really comes down to is color play, which is basically my favorite thing about getting dressed each day. If you really think about it, there's a lot of emotion that goes along with the colors you decide to put on each day. I'm drawn to all colors for so many different reasons. Memories. An emotional stir. Character role playing. Flashes of inspiration that has to do with a certain color flashing through my head is usually enough to make me where it in different ways for an entire week. I can be having the worst day ever, but throwing on this peach little satchel could be one thing that keeps me from going overboard at the end of the day. Every little details makes a difference.
Thank you to Lucky Magazine for having me a part of this Fossil collaboration :)
