Happy Monday, my loves! Today’s look is also brought to you by my increasing separation anxiety from Disney World. I wore this on our last full day when we went to Magic Kingdom, my favorite park! It’s home to Big Thunder Mountain Roller Coaster, my favorite ride of all time. I have so many amazing memories in Magic Kingdom. I went to Disney World for the first time when I was six, and my parents and I ate dinner at the castle. We met Cinderella in the elevator, and she asked me what my baby doll’s name was. When we saw her later in the dining room, she went out of her way to say “Hi, Isabella!” to my doll. I was (and still am) so in awe of the fact that she actually remembered her name! 

Anyway, since it was a little chilly when I went as a twenty-one year old, I wore my lighter leggings and my Star Wars letters. This cropped tee is great for chilly days because it covers the parts of me that usually get cold, but it doesn’t make me overheated! I wore this flannel and tied it around my waist when it started getting sunny. 

My rose gold Minnie ears have to be my favorite part though! I had been looking forward to getting these ears for literal months before we actually got to Disney. I loved them so much, I didn’t take them off for the entire trip and for about a week after I got home. 

What’s your favorite Disney park? Let me know in the comments!

Hey babes! I hope your weekend was fabulous. I got to spend mine with my mom! We went to the Institute of Contemporary Art, which I had surprisingly never been to in the four years that I’ve lived in Boston. It was so cool! They featured a piece by Ragnar Kjartansson called The Visitors, and it was hands down the most beautiful piece of art I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend checking it out if you can! I get goosebumps just thinking about it.

Speaking of goosebumps, I wore this outfit back when it was still a little chilly. This sweater usually keeps me warm enough without a jacket, but it’s not super heavy, which is nice. I always wear it with my black bralette and leggings. Sometimes I’ll wear boots, but most of the time I’ll wear my sneakers or moccasins. I always feel so cute and cozy.

I threw it back to sophomore year Kristen and wore my hair half-up-half-down, but left the choker in 2017. I also sprayed on some Indi by Katy Perry because it makes me feel so warm inside.

Sometimes I miss dressing cozy like this, but then I see the sun shining and remember how much I love summer. Do you have any cool plans coming up? Let me know in the comments!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, loves! I hope everyone had a fun holiday weekend. I went to a couple parties and spent some time with some people I’m ~lucky~ to have in my life.

Speaking of things I’m grateful for, where would I be without my girl Halsey? If you haven’t already gathered from the amount I wear this sweatshirt, I’m a huge Halsey fan. She also happens to make amazing, comfy merchandise that I wear to death. I got some yucky stuff on this sweatshirt not too long ago, but I went to town with some stain remover and now she’s as good as new :’)

Another piece of clothing that I’m lucky to have is my fuzzy leggings, which I also post about way too much! I wore jeans for the first time in a while last week, and I was reminded of why I’m always in leggings. Jeans make me feel so restricted and uncomfortable, even if they do look cute! Now that the weather’s getting nicer, I’ll probably start transitioning into lighter leggings and my denim shorts. But these babies will always be a ride or die for me.

I topped off this look with my black Timbs, Killer Queen perfume, and Sunice Sunglasses. I’m so happy to be an ambassador for this awesome brand! If you’re planning on snagging these adorable sunnies, use my code CLUNKSTER25 for 25% off your order ;)

Hey cuties! I hope your February is going well so far. My sorority sisters and I watched the Super Bowl together last night, and we had so much fun! I truly don’t know what I’d do without them. They made the most boring game in the world so funny.

This olive button-down shirt is one of my favorites, but as I say so often, I don’t wear it enough! I think it’s because one time I underestimated how heavy the fabric was and wore it on a way too hot day. I showed up somewhere and didn’t realize until later that I had the biggest pit stains! Now I make sure to wear it when I know I’ll be in a non-sweaty environment, which is pretty unpredictable. I can’t believe I just typed that sentence. I should start wearing it more this winter.

I wore my fleece-lined leggings and tan Timberlands, which I’ve been living in lately. I did some light makeup and straightened my hair. These glasses are from Sunice Glasses, too! They’re called The Club, and I love them so much. They’re similar to a pair of sunglasses I used to have that broke, may they rest in peace. Check out all of the sunglasses on Sunice’s website, and be sure to use my code, CLUNKSTER25, for 25% off your order! Then DM me and tell me which ones you got!!!

This week, I challenge you to wear something you haven’t worn in a while. If it doesn’t spark joy, Marie Kondo it! Have a great day!

Nope. None. Well, that’s an exaggeration. I have a ton of pairs of Charlotte Russe jeans in all different colors that I tell myself I’ll need to wear at some point in my life. Sometimes, I do! Just two months ago I wore my blue jeans for a photoshoot for work, and last Halloween I wore my tan jeans when I was Rey from Star Wars. But aside from when I take them out to play, my jeans always stay in the chest of clothes that I only wear once in a blue moon.

I don’t have anything against jeans, I’ve just always had a problem finding some that fit me perfectly. I’ve been on the hunt for a good pair of baggy boyfriend jeans for a while now with no luck (if you know of a good pair, tell me in the comments!). I have a small waist, big butt, and thick thighs, so jeans just aren’t comfortable. I stockpiled all those pairs of Charlotte Russe jeans because they fit me the best.

But skinny jeans aren’t as cute as they once were, and I obviously prefer leggings. I wore this look to a Denim themed mixer (the last one I ever went to, RIP), and I’m pretty proud of how I dressed the theme while not dressing it at all. Believe me, I was really making the effort to wear jeans, but I was just thinking about having to peel them off of me when I got home later that night, and I knew that leggings were the way to go. I was so so comfortable and extremely warm! These fleece lined leggings will have my heart forever, to be honest.

I wore my black turtleneck and black boots, and last but not least, my denim vest. I got this from dELiA*s a while back and I’m so disappointed that I haven’t worn it more, so shoutout to our social chairs for bringing it back from the dead!

As far as my hair and makeup went, I kept things fun and basic with a half-up-half-down look and some pretty neutral makeup. I wore one of my new favorite lipstick colors that I’ll be reviewing soon!

What’s your favorite mixer theme? Let me know in the comments (and I’ll tell Gamma’s social chair)!

Happy Hump Day! I hope so badly that you’re staying toasty in this arctic weather. I don’t know why I made the decision to move to a cold place instead of running away to Florida or California, but you know what they say, the grass is always greener. You guys are probably sick of hearing me complain about the weather by now.

One way I stay cozy in these sub-zero temperatures is by wearing this sweatshirt and never taking it off, ever. I got it for Christmas last year and I wear it literally all the time. I love it so much because it’s Halsey merch, but also because it’s so big and cozy, which keeps me nice and warm. I like to layer shirts underneath it too so I’m extra warm.

Another is by wearing my fuzzy leggings to death! I have a gazillion pairs because they’re seriously a ride or die item for me. They’re high-waisted too, which gives me another half layer on my torso. Every little barrier against the cold helps!

My Timbs are really great in the cold too since they have a ton of traction against the snow. They’re really weather-resistant, too. And they go with everything. Timberlands take up a chamber of my heart.

I style this sweatshirt and leggings in a lot of different ways, but this is definitely one of my favorites. My Kat Von D lipstick just looks awesome with this sweatshirt, so I love to wear them together a lot. What are some winter items you can’t live without? Let me know in the comments!

Hey, angels! I hope this week has been awesome for everyone. I’ve been a little stressed with finals and life itself, but I’m pushing through, one nap at a time! In the meantime, I figured I’d share a look I’ve been wearing basically non-stop for a while now. I’ve been ridiculously into bodysuits lately, and I always love my high-waisted leggings.

I haven’t talked a whole lot about my new favorite sweater yet! I got it on a trip to the Duluth Trading Company’s headquarters in Burlington, MA with my dad! It’s where he gets a lot of his flannels, so a couple of my flannels are from there. I got this sweater in an extra large, so it was comfy and cozy. The next size up was way too big. But it’s so warm and comfy and I can’t take it off! I’ll make any excuse to wear it and I have been.

I went with my lighter Timberlands to add some ~color~ to the look. My hair is a little curly because I left it in a bun overnight! I really love when that happens.

Do you have a sweater you can’t stop wearing? Let me know in the comments!

shirt (gamma exclusive, sorry babes!). leggings. sneakers. sunglasses.

Hey babes! I still can’t believe that this is my last semester of school. It keeps hitting me at weird times, like at the end of my sorority’s Initiation, when I couldn’t say what I needed to because I was sobbing so hard. My sisters are absolute angels and gave me beautiful flowers and an amazing card, and I almost cried all my makeup off. I look so sad in all the pictures.

This is our Recruitment shirt from this past semester! Our theme was Gamma Brings You Home, which I loved because Gamma truly is my home. I wore this amazing shirt with my lighter leggings and white Converse to match the colors in my shirt. I also wore my gold heart-shaped glasses because I’m in love with my sorority.

Hey cutie patooties! It’s been a minute! I’ve been complaining a lot about how demanding my classes have been, but now that my last semester of New Member Education is over with (don’t let me think about it or I’ll cry again), I have more time to breathe, sleep, and blog! I’m so excited for all the fun things I have coming up for you all. Make sure you stay tuned so you don’t miss a beat!

As you all know, I love a good bodysuit. I wore my leotard with my lighter leggings for a trip to Target! This was back when I didn’t need a jacket. I miss the warmer weather already. Fall is my favorite season, but it got cold so quickly I feel like I got cheated! I wore this blue flannel that I very rarely wear. The color is so beautiful that the dark side of me gets intimidated. But I should definitely show it more love.

I wore my hair in a pony to get it the heck out of my face, and my classic black Converse. I also wore these really cool sunglasses from Spitfire! They’re edgy and different, which I’m always a fan of. I topped it all off with Royal Revolution, yet another superb scent from Fragrance Goddess Katy Perry.

What color(s) do you wear most? Let me know in the comments!

leotard. leggings. sweater (no clue, i’m so sorry). moccasins. perfume.

Hello, my beautiful readers! Once again, I’m very sorry for the lack of posting. I’m still getting used to my crazy workload and settling into my new apartment, which explains my new selfie surroundings! My camera is also currently malfunctioning, so you guys get some old-fashioned iPhone photos for a bit.

Here’s a look I wore a little while ago that I really loved. I felt like I was heading to a ballet class, and it made me really miss my dance days. I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about it here, but dance was literally my entire life for about twelve years. I took dance as a class in high school, and I did Kickline and Cheer on and off until last year too. I really miss it :(

To be filed in the Things I Never Wear But Love When I Do folder, my leotard! I always talk about how much I love my bodysuits, so I’ve been trying to wear them more, but I haven’t taken this cutie out for a spin in a while. She’s a little ~cheeky~ because the leg holes (??? you know what I mean) are kinda high, so my hipbones peek out a bit over my lighter leggings.

It wouldn’t be a Clunkster bodysuit look without some form of outerwear. Of course, I went with one of my many grey sweaters. I absolutely love the silhouette of this lighter one. It’s so comfortable and looks great with the leotard and leggings. And, of course, it’s very ballerina-esque.

I wore my insanely comfy moccasins, which I also don’t wear enough. My feet have been killing me lately from walking all over the city in my Converse. I threw my hair in a bun in true prima ballerina fashion, left my face bare, and called it an extremely comfy day.

Do you dance? What kind do you do? Let me know in the comments!

Hello, my beautiful readers! I just wanted to take a sec to thank you all for continuing to support me for so long :’) Sometimes it’s hard to believe that that there are actually people listening to/reading what I have to scream into the void of the interwebs, and I truly appreciate it. So thanks :)

Anyway, I really hope that you guys like this look as much as I do. Every now and then, I just pull stuff together and it ~works~. This was one of those times! Emerson had their very first free music festival this year, so I dropped by for a bit to see Bleachers and hung out with my sisters for a bit! I had a really great time.

I’ve actually never been to a music festival before, but I knew that I needed to look cute. Most people that go to music festivals wear crop tops and flower crowns (at least it seems so from Instagram), so I decided to wear my white crop top.

Since it was raining a bit, I wore my black leggings, which are a little high-waisted, so they looked bomb with the top. To dress things down a bit, I wore this grey sweatshirt I just stole from my mom. It’s ridiculously comfy. Thanks Ma!

This day was also one of the only days I wore makeup this summer. Sometimes I just need to take some time to get all dolled up and feel my best (at least that’s what makes me feel my best), even if I end up sweating all my makeup off later. My hair had a cute lil curl to it since it was in a bun for most of the day.

One of my favorite parts of this look is my backpack! I got it from dELiA*s way back, and it’s perfect for carrying medium amounts of stuff. Sometimes, I have trouble finding bags that are big enough to hold a good amount of things, like my phone, wallet, umbrella, and other stuff I need for whatever I’m doing, but not too big that all my stuff is swimming. This backpack has compartments, and it’s big enough to hold everything I need for those medium-sized days. I just love backpacks in general because they’re hands-free and convenient (at least for me), but they can so easily get too beat up or school-y. This backpack is navy and completely lace, which is just so cute. It looked awesome with the rest of my look.

To top it off, I wore my white Converse to match my top, and wore Katy Perry’s Indi perfume. Did you know she has a new fragrance coming out?! Stay tuned!

Happy Tuesday, cuties! I hope your weekend was absolutely fabulous. I can’t believe we’re almost halfway done with August! To be honest, I’m just about ready for the fall, my favorite season! It’s all about transitions, new beginnings, and my birthday ;) I’ll be twenty-one this year, so that’ll be a big change for me.

This is a good transitional look for that awkward time between summer and fall. These are my lighter leggings, which have been an actual lifesaver this summer. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love my leggings, but I usually wear a fleece-lined pair that I just can’t put up with in the summertime. These leggings are still pretty high-waisted, so I wore it with my bodysuit, which I always say I need to wear more, and I am!

I threw my hair in my usual top knot, and pulled everything together with my blue flannel and white Converse. I’ve been digging the all black clothes with white shoes combo lately.

What are you looking forward to in the fall?! Let me know in the comments!

Happy Father’s Day! I love holidays that celebrate my parents because they’re literal royalty and deserve to be treated as such. This is a harder Father’s Day because it’s the first one without my grandpa and the second without my uncle, but I know they’re always with us! I spent the whole weekend with my dad doing the things we love, and I couldn't ask for anything more.

I’m so so so thankful for my dad and everything he’s taught me. I’m also thankful for him giving me so many flannels! So, I decided to commemorate this lovely day by wearing one of my favorites. This flannel is suuuuuper soft and comfy, and just a little different from all the others I have, which is nice.

The rest of my look is super simple; just a wrinkly white tee, my cropped leggings, and white Converse. I was really comfy (as I always am in this flannel), and when I’m comfy I’m happy! I topped everything off with INDI, of course.

Make sure to give the men in your life an extra big hug today! And if some of your men are in another place like some of mine, try your best to carry on their legacy today (and every day). xoxo

weird weather wednesday


flannel (i don't know i'm sorry!). bodysuit. leggings. sneakers. sunglasses (similar). perfume

Happy Hump Day! This week’s weather has been a little weird. It’s either super sunny and hot, or really overcast and rainy. It’s been messing with my allergies so badly, and I’m not a fan!

On the bright side though, I can layer more! I wore my bodysuit, which I vowed to wear more often, my purple flannel, which I love but don’t wear enough, and my high-waisted leggings, which I miss very much. Last but not least, I wore my brand new, kind-of-clean black Converse.

I put on a little bit of makeup because I really missed wearing it, but I didn’t go all out because I wasn’t doing anything. I’ve been going bare-faced since it’s been so hot and wet, but I do miss doing my makeup in the morning. It’s the most relaxing part of my day :’)

We’re halfway through the week my loves, let’s finish it on a great note! xoxo

Happy Memorial Day! Though it’s fun to appreciate the three-day weekend and sales, remember that every day is Memorial Day for people who have lost loved ones fighting for what they believe in. This day can be difficult for them, so remember to show them some love today!

I’ve been taking it easy before I start working for the summer, and I keep forgetting that I actually have stuff to do. It’s been a nice mental vacation, but I need to get back into the swing of things! Here’s a look I wore to go shopping a couple days ago.

Now that it’s nicer out, I can wear different things! This tank top is a hand-me-down from my cousin, and I love it. It’s super comfy and relatively casual, but the lace at the bottom just adds a little something extra. I wore my thinner leggings since temperatures are rising, and my Ugg moccasins that I haven’t worn in forever! I always forget just how comfy they are.

I did some pretty basic makeup, including my new obsession, my Burt's Bees lip crayon, and put my hair in a braided ponytail. I also wore Katy Perry’s Meow! perfume, which is one of my favorites by her. It smells just like cotton candy! I loooooove scents, so I’d love to start writing more about them here. Let me know if there are any perfumes you want me to review! I always love an excuse to buy things :’)

sorority saturday


shirt (i don't know which shop, i'm sorry!) leggings. sneakers. perfume.

Hey hey! It’s finally the weekend! Today my dad came to visit me and we saw Solo together! It was awesome; definitely make sure you see it if you’re a Star Wars fan. I have another sorority ~Saturday~ look for you all today, and this one’s also pretty simple. My looks have been relatively simple lately.

For this look, I just paired my high-waisted leggings with this shirt my sorority bought in bulk. I’m not a huge fan of Kanye West, but I do love the design! The color is really unique. There are so many ways I wanna style this shirt.

I wore some white Converse, which I thought looked super cute since it matched the letters on the shirt and kept things casual and cute. They’re soooo dirty, I definitely need to wash them soon.

Like I said though, this look is super simple, but I still wanted to share it because I love sharing everything with you guys, and I love any excuse to talk about my sorority. Have a great weekend!

top (no longer being sold at H&M). leggings. bralette. sneakers. perfume. lipstick (in Sanctuary). 

Hello! Happy Thursday! I wore this look to a party a couple nights ago. Going to parties during the summer is so much easier than in the winter! No one has to wear their big bulky jackets, no one minds walking a lot or being outside, and everyone can get away with less clothes!

This wasn’t too much of a party, so I just decided to wear my high-waisted leggings and a crop top. I was a little bored with what was in my closet, so I borrowed this shirt from one of my roommates, and I love it! I think I had a similar one in hot pink a couple years ago. This was super comfortable, and the cut was perfect.

I wore my bralette underneath, and my white Converse to make my shirt pop more. I put my hair in a braided ponytail, and wore my darker lipstick. I love all the balance of light and dark in this look!

This one’s another simple one, but I’ve got a bunch of cool looks coming soon! Stay tuned, and make sure you’re following me on all my social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, & Pinterest.

jersey (no clue, I'm sorry!). leggings. boots. lipstick (in Sanctuary).

Happy Thursday! Or as I like to call it, Friday Jr. I used to hate Thursdays because I thought they were a tease. You’re almost to the weekend, but not quite there yet. But back when I was in school, I didn’t have class on Fridays, so my weekends began when I got out of class on Thursdays at 5:45pm, which made Thursdays a lot more fun.

Here’s one of my new favorite looks that I’m so pumped to share with you all. I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about it here, but my dad raised me on heavy metal, so while it may not look like it, I really appreciate bands like Judas Priest, Dio, and, of course, Black Sabbath. My dad found this awesome hockey jersey, and he bought it for me because he’s one of the most amazing humans on this planet. You can’t see the back, but instead of a name it says “The End,” and the jersey number is 666. This is probably one of the coolest things I own.

I finished off the look with the usual: leggings and black boots. I left my hair a little messy, and put on my dark lipstick to match the Sabbath vibe. I tend to highlight cool pieces like these by keeping everything else in the look relatively simple. I think if I did anything more it would be a bit overboard.

Later, I went to Chipotle, and the guy making my bowl told me that I looked like a Wiccan. I said, “Thanks! Can I have brown rice?” I’ll take it as a compliment! What’s your favorite metal band? Let me know in the comments!

top (similar). leggings. kimono. sneakers. perfume

Happy Friday! Finals are over, the sun is shining, and there’s more time to spend with the people we love. I wore this outfit to a surprise birthday dinner for one of my sorority sisters! She was so surprised, and everyone had a really great time. Gabrielle Martin is an amazing human being.

To be honest, I don’t really know how I put this outfit together! I was wearing this look earlier in the day, so I really just swapped outerwear. I normally would’ve thrown on a flannel, but since we were going out, I put on a kimono instead. I love this outfit because it’s cute and put together, but not too fancy. It’s really just the perfect thing to wear to a girls’ hang!

My hair was still in a ponytail from the night before, surprise! I put so much product in it to get it to stay perfect, so I always want to get as much out of it as I can. I did re-do my makeup though! I kept it relatively simple, with a little bit of glitter.

My favorite part of this look is probably my bag! I bought it five years ago on Black Friday at H&M. It was crazy cheap, I think it was $5! I love this color red because it adds a pop to any look, especially a black and white one like this. The bag is really roomy, too! I'd love to find a bag like this in a more neutral color, so if you find one let me know!

There’s not much to say about this look other than that it’s cute and I love it! I think it’s a good example that it doesn’t take a ton of work to take a look from night, to day, to night, to day… 

Have a great weekend!

jersey (my uncle's!). crop top (originally from charlotte but this one is similar). leggings. sneakers. sunglasses (similar). 

Hello, hello! Boston seems to have finally figured itself out, and it looks like the sunshine’s here to stay! Unfortunately, I overestimated the temperature, and was a little chilly in this outfit. At least I looked cute!

I started with this cute white crop top that I found in my closet! I’ve always loved it, but as always, I forgot it even existed. It reminds me of the crop top Cheryl Blossom wears in the car race episode of Riverdale. This top looks adorable with my high-waisted leggings.

I also wore this super cool Grateful Dead baseball jersey that used to be my Uncle Johnny’s, and my white Converse. I wore my hair half-up-half-down, since it was yucky and still full of hairspray for the weekend. I also ditched the makeup today because I wasn’t feeling it.

I’m so excited that I can finally wear clothes like this again! Time for lots more risk-taking and colors other than black :’)
