J. Hill

The VMA's were kind of a let down for me last night. However, Jonah Hill totally made up for it when he surprised everyone with his new, slim physique and awesome, new style. Out of all the outfits I saw on the 'black' carpet last night, this one definitely has to be my favorite. I liked it so much I decided to do my first ever 'Get the Look' for all my male readers that are just as inspired by this outfit as I am. Enjoy!

1. "Woven Plaid Shirt" : $25.90, Forever21 (21MEN).
2. "OBEY Rapture Bomber Jacket" : $128, Urban Outfitters.
3. "Pakerson" Orange Belt : $132, Forzieri.
4. "Levi's 510 Jet Black Jeans" : $39.99, Pacsun.
5. "J Shoes Chainsaw Monkey Boot" : $198, Urban Outfitters.

I usually don't like animal prints, but when I saw these shoes at a $5 shoe store, I had to get them. I matched them up with a polka-dotted shirt from Forever21, leggings from Walmart, and a necklace I purchased while in Cancun.

-- I hope all my East Coast readers are doing well after Hurricane Irene! My prayers go out to all the families that have lost their homes and/or loved ones.

Nice Summer Breeze

Today was the perfect day to be outside; temperature in the high 70s accompanied by a cool breeze. My friend and I roamed, enjoying the wonderful weather. I'm wearing a black tank top from Forever21, scarf from Target, self-cut shorts from Hollister, and my favorite shoes I purchased ages ago from Journeys. Hope your day went as wonderfully as mine did!

North Jersey

William Paterson bound! I am planning on attending WPU this fall, studying english-writing, and these are just two of the pictures that I took while up there visiting the campus. Tagging along is my best friend, Brittany. We had so much fun taking our own personal tour around the campus; checking out every building. I am wearing a black tank top from Forever21, shorts from Mandee, shoes from Urban Outfitters, accesorries also from Mandee, while sporting my B. Makowsky, leather handbag! Is anyone else as excited for the school year to begin as I am? :)

I absolutely adore my black, floral top. I got it from Express a couple months ago and love every chance I get to wear it. I'm also wearing black sandals from Urban Outfitters, gray shorts I purchased while vacationing in Cancun, and bangles from Mandee. My hair is pulled back into a simple bun which is perfect for those lazy days in which doing your hair seems beyond time consuming.
Thoughts on my ensemble?

Just a random, late-night photo shoot. I've been obsessing over braids lately; especially fishtail braids. While my attempt is sloppy in these photos, hopefully it's a skill I perfect over time. Below is a video by Free People showing how to do a fishtail braid for those who aren't as braid-savvy, such as myself.

Au Naturel

While visiting a local park the other day with my best friend, I became very inspired by my surroundings. I couldn't help but take these snapshots of the beautiful scenery, which led to me raiding my closet for similar color schemes. I love all of these pieces!

My Canvas

Love, love, LOVE, my flat canvas sneakers! I don't think my wardrobe would be complete without these. While it's clear I've worn my white pair down quite a bit, the black pair is a new purchase. I cannot wait to combine them with my self-cut, boyfriend jean shorts and a tucked in black tank top.

Get the look:

White flat canvas sneakers - Payless, $14.99

Black flat canvas sneakers - Target, $8.00
