XI + WIWW

IMG_1355

I’m a true believer that how people dress is a direct reflection of their lives. What they are going through, where they are going and who they aspire to be can all be told with their personal style and outfits.

You all may have noticed that recently, I’ve been living in neutrals. Gravitating towards fuss-free basics and layered with innovation. That’s where I see my style going.

The closer Zach and I get to our wedding and starting a new life together, the more we talk about craving ease and simplicity. My style is very much reflective of that. We want to streamline our way of living, travel and see the world. We are reevaluating everything. Has anyone else gone through this quarter life crisis?

But back to the clothes – as you probably can tell – my favorite combination is blush and grey. Feminine yet edgy, soft yet very street style. I’m 100% obsessed. I’ve been on the hunt for a new blush leather jacket for the longest time. My old one was literally falling apart, because I’d had it since I was 16. I finally found this one (for under $50) here. If you are on the true border of sizing, I’d recommend sizing up. Oh and sale alert, my snakeskin bag (that’s normally $300) is on E-X-T-R-A sale for $69!

You might also notice my new necklace. I teamed up with Purple Karma Accessories to design a necklace for them (how fun, right?!). I ended up wanting a monogrammed style pendant, minus the overdone monogram. So I turned my XI tattoo (that can be found in the inside of my right foot) into the pendant. The piece is two-toned, inspired by my rose gold and platinum engagement ring. The XI is rose gold, with the delicate chain (much like my delicate setting) being white gold plated.

XI for us has some very personal meaning – even Zach has XI stamped on his chest. This probably isn’t the case for you, so you can have it personalized with any roman numeral you would like. Hope you all like it! You can get it 15% off with code CHICTREAT.

  3. I love this outfit, and I’m the same way with basics right now! I’ve noticed over the last couple years that my style has gotten increasingly more simple, and I tend to focus on basic items that I can wear more. Makes it easier to pic outfits when your items can be mix and matched so well!

    Love every piece. You’re so creative with your wardrobe. I’m trying to rediscover pieces in my own wardrobe because I’m on a shopping ban.

      Aw – thank you so much, Kylan! Shopping bans are the best thing to happen to your styling skills, I swear!
