Living On The Edge

One of the hardest questions I’m always asked is, “how do you define your style?” I always find this question challenging to answer because I can never accurately define my fashion style because it changes every day and every night, depending on my mood, the weather, my style inspirations, and so on.  Every fashion lover can agree the best thing about fashion is that you don’t have to stick to one style, but every day is a different day to use clothing to express yourself.  Some days you will find me dressing like a hippie, other days more preppy, even some days I’m wearing pink and more feminine pieces, or the complete opposite and wearing leather and all black.  Today, was one of those days when I decided to forgo the typical colorful or floral pieces in my closet and embrace my edgy side. Keep on reading to see how I’m living life on the edge, one jean skirt and leather jacket at a time.  

Although, I love living in New York City and wouldn’t change it for the world, one thing I must be mindful of is my budget, which is very hard for a fashion obsessed girl like me.  Now, whenever I do go shopping and have a few extra bucks to spend, I like to find pieces that are unique and things I don’t have in my wardrobe already.  So, when I visited my nearby Bloomingdale’s Outlet store, my eyes immediately went to this super cool jean skirt with this edgy black tulle detail.  I have never seen or own a denim skirt like this one, so naturally I had to buy it and the price tag also helped that decision. This denim skirt is certainly out there, something I probably would have never worn if I wasn’t living in the city, because after all the city is full of trendy and fashion risk takers so I wanted to attempt to be one. 

With this skirt, a simple top would do just perfect, so that’s why I paired it with my basic black tank top from Zara.  I also believe this skirt would look great with a white graphic t-shirt to enhance the edgy vibe.  

I totally don’t need a leather jacket in this extreme heat, but it’s mostly for “decoration” as you can tell as I just hold it and drape it across my shoulders.

I wanted to let my inner rockstar side shine, so naturally I had to include my leather jacket from Zara.  

To keep with the all black streak, I chose my strappy, studded flats from the brand Dolce Vita.  

Finally for jewelry, I couldn’t’ decide on one necklace so I chose to wear both.  First, my laser cut design choker from H&M and then secondly my long silver key necklace from the brand The Giving Keys. This company has an amazing backstory and message behind each piece of jewerly, so I highly recommend checking at their website 

It feels good to step out of your fashion comfort zone and try different styles.  I urge you to go to your favorite stores and instead gravitating towards “safe” pieces, try on and buy a few clothing items that are totally different from your usual style.  Let me know in the comments below what are some of your favorite ways you incorporate different styles in your everyday look. Talk to you all on my next post.

    Loving this look dear, edgy and sassy. Those sandals really wrapped up the whole outfit. And yes, it’s definitely not easy to budget when there are tons of great shopping options around, especially in NYC! ha!
