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!

a simpler time

Outfit of the Day, StyleKristenComment

top (no longer being sold by Charlotte Russe). bralette. shorts. sneakers. sunglasses (mine are lighter!). perfume.

Hello hello hello! I hope everyone’s doing well. I’m back home on Long Island for a bit, and I’m having a blast! I didn’t realize how much I’d miss Long Island summers since this is the first one I spent in Boston, so it’s nice to come home and do typical Long Islander things and spend time with my family. I feel like I can move on from summer now.

Here’s yet another shirt I don’t wear enough! This color is so beautiful and unique. It looks like a sweatshirt, but the fabric is actually super thin, which is great in the hot weather that the east coast is suffering through. I wore my denim shorts and my black Converse to match my bralette.

I always hate when I don’t have a ton to say about a look, but this one is super simple! I always say that I need to wear more of what’s in my closet, so I’m happy I got to take this top out for a spin. I need to wear it more while the weather is still nice!

Where have you spent this summer? Let me know in the comments!

sweatshirt. shorts. sneakers. sunglasses. perfume.

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.

cozy badass

Outfit of the DayKristenComment

sweatshirt. leggings. boots. lipgloss (in sanctuary). 

I'm so excited to share this look with you guys! My parents have been making fun of me because I wear this outfit all the time. I got this Halsey sweatshirt for Christmas, and I fell in love. I originally asked for it so I could wear it as a dress, but it was a little too short. I ended up loving it as just a sweatshirt though! It's so soft and extra cozy because it's so big. 

My black leggings are perfect to wear with this sweatshirt because they're just black and simple, like my Timbs. I love doing my makeup when I wear this look though! I usually go with my Kat Von D lipgloss and play with the colors in my Urban Decay NAKED3 palette. The rose gold colors look so great with this lip color!

Overall, I love this look because it makes me feel like a badass, like Halsey, but it's so comfy (and warm!) that I really feel like myself. Thus, I've named this look "Cozy Badass." To all my other cozy badasses out there, I hope you enjoy the rest of your week! 

Sorority Sunday!

Sweatshirt. Leggings. Boots (no longer being sold at Primark). Vest

It’s the first Sorority Sunday of 2017! Gamma was by far one of the best parts of my 2016, and something I’m so happy to begin my 2017 with. I just got this sweatshirt for Christmas, and it’s so comfy! I haven’t taken it off. I wore my puffer vest over this since it’s a little too chilly to just wear a sweatshirt. I wore this with my leggings and boots for a typical Clunkster look.

In this photo, my hair and makeup are done, but this has also been my lazy Winter Break uniform. I just can’t get over how comfortable I am in this!
