Hey loves! I hope this has been a great week for you all so far. Here’s another look I’ve been holding onto for a bit. Sometimes I miss my old room :( My dad got me this awesome shirt two Christmases ago, so I love to wear it when I see him to make him happy. Isn’t it so cool?!

I don’t know why, but I don’t usually wear outerwear with this shirt. I decided to wear my ~beautiful blue flannel~ and I loved how it looked! I wore my Converse, which I think looked really cool with the black and white of the shirt and shorts.

I always say I need to experiment more with my wardrobe, but I never fully realize how much I need to until I try something new and it works. I went Black Friday shopping the other day and didn’t get one black thing. Not one! I even got a pastel pink sweater. I usually don’t even try things on if they’re not a more muted color, but I really love everything I bought. Maybe I’ll make a post about it!

Happy Thursday! I’m so sorry I haven’t posted lately, sometimes I need to remember that I’m a student first and I need to get my shit done. My classes are pretty demanding this semester, but I know I’ll get on top of things and back to posting on a regular schedule eventually!

Here’s a cute little look featuring one of my favorite shirts. My sorority (did you guys know I’m in a sorority? I know I never mention it) did a walk for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation a couple years back, and we sold these adorable shirts to fundraise. The back has a big compass that says “Gamma will show you the way.” Hella cute, I love my sisters :’) I cut mine into a tank top because I’m ~hip and cool~, but for real, I really love the way I cut it. This tank is super light and looks great with my black bralette.

In fact, all of the black accessories in this look played off each other really well. My black shorts and black Converse really stood out. My hair was wavy and summery, and I didn’t wear makeup because heat. I wore my wood sunglasses (RIP) and Katy Perry’s INDI! I’m so excited to get her newest fragrance, INDIvisible! You guys will definitely be hearing about it, so stay tuned.

Would you guys like to see some perfume reviews in the future? Let me know in the comments!

Hey hey hey! I know I’ve only mentioned it about a thousand times, but can you believe it’s already Recruitment season?! I met some of the amazing girls that want to join my family last night and got so much more excited than I already was. I still can’t believe our idea three years ago turned into this :’)

This is our Recruitment shirt from Spring 2017! It’s my personal favorite of our Recruitment shirts. I love the unique cut that helps us ~stand out~. I wore this top with my bralette, and to be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever not worn my bralette with this top. I don’t know what else I’d wear. Maybe a gold bralette? I don’t really want one?

I wore my black shorts and black Converse (is black your favorite color or something?) and let my hair down for the day. I wore Katy Perry’s Killer Queen perfume that smells as beautiful as it looks, and my wood sunglasses that broke the other day and I am SO SAD let’s not talk about it.

Are you rushing a sorority this semester? Let me know in the comments!

see ya summer

Hey, cutie pies! It’s pretty much Fall, which means you’ll be seeing less shorts around here from now on. I do love my shorts, but leggings really have my heart. They’re so much more comfortable and just work with my style really well.

I’m so happy I ended up buying these black shorts! I’m definitely a fan of this midi length, I’ll need to buy more washes and colors next summer. For this look, I went all black, as I do, with my black bodysuit, I also wore my blue flannel, which I showed lots of love to this summer.

As I always say, I’m so here for mixing up tight and oversized clothes. My bodysuit and shorts look great together and contrast really well with baggy flannels like these.

I finished the look off with my white Converse and a good attitude. I definitely have just a couple more shorts looks for you all, but stay tuned for more leggings and sweaters coming soon!

Hello hello! I hope your week is going well. It’s almost the weekend!

Today, I’m wearing this awesome Judas Priest shirt and my black denim shorts. As most of you may already know, my dad raised me on heavy metal, and Judas Priest has always been one of his favorites. So, he got us all tickets to see them when they came to Long Island! We had floor seats, and it was legendary. They’re awesome.

I bought this shirt outside the venue. A man pulled it out of his pant leg. It’s lit.

Last but not least, I wore my black Converse, wood sunglasses, and Killer Queen by Katy Perry. I went makeupless as usual these days, and let my hair go natural. I love when it’s wavy but not frizzy, like this!

Are you a fan of any metal bands? Let me know in the comments!

Hello hello hello! Happy weekend! Is it just me, or has this week gone insanely slow?! I’m happy to be back home on Long Island for a little to relax, eat some pizza and bagels, and spend time with my family and my dog.

I’ve been obsessed with this sweatshirt since I got it! I purposely asked for a massive size because I knew I wanted to bury myself in it all the time. I think part of the reason I love big bulky clothes like this and my flannels is because I’m cozy enough that I could almost curl up into a ball and take a nap if I wanted to!

For this look, I technically forwent (forgoed?) pants, but I’m actually wearing shorts underneath. In a dream world, I wouldn’t be wearing pants at all, but this sweatshirt is juuuust short enough that I need something to cover my butt. I finished off this look with my black Converse and wore Killer Queen by Katy Perry.

Do you like oversized clothes, or clothes that fit properly? Let me know in the comments!

Hello my loves! It’s only Tuesday, but for some reason, it feels like this week has been super long already. I’ve been weirdly exhausted and not in the mood to do a lot, which is good every once and a while, I just wish I had more energy!

Today’s look is a cute one because it features one of my favorite bands, Jesse and the Rippers ;) For those of you who don’t get it, this is love of my life John Stamos/Uncle Jesse’s band from Full House, which is one of my favorite shows in the world. A couple years back, my mom and aunt got me tickets to see the Off-Broadway show Full House: The Musical! starring Perez Hilton, and it was amazing. They had these shirts as merch, and I couldn’t not get one. It was originally a full tee, but in true Clunkster fashion, I cut it into a tank with wide sleeve openings. It looks adorable with my bralette.

I tucked this tank into my black shorts, wore my black Converse, and left my hair messy and long. To be honest, I didn’t even wear these retro sunglasses because they’re still broken, I just did it for the flatlay. Sidenote, does anyone know how you fix sunglasses? Do I just get one of those kits from CVS? Literally the entire arm is off. SOS. These are my faves.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday, and that if it’s going super slowly for you too, things get better! See ya soon!

P.S. this post spawned a Full House marathon. Who knew it was on Hulu all this time?! I've been blessed.
