Gerlan Jeans

 I recently wore this outfit to do some thrift shopping and visit the art museum in Nashville. (I accidentally left my museum sticker on my jacket!) This Gerlan Jeans jacket is included in my Fall/Winter personal style moodboard (below). I've recently fallen in love with the brand-- so many amazing prints and unusual silhouettes. My top is an old piece from Forever 21, and my bike shorts are from Academy Sports and Outdoors. My pink necklace and bracelet are some jewelry samples I'm currently developing. My "Selfie" necklace is from a boutique in San Diego, and my black and white bracelet is from Anthropologie. The hand cursor earrings are from MariniFINI on Etsy, and the eyeball rings are from BuriedDiamond on Etsy.

I made this fall/winter moodboard to organize some of my current personal style thoughts. I'm already so excited to wear faux fur this winter, especially brightly colored faux furs! I'm also very inspired by the F/W 2014 Marc by Marc Jacobs collection, Gerlan Jeans, and Nasir Mazhar. I like colorful sportswear made out of unusual textures and materials. I'm planning to order a Print All Over Me jumpsuit for the fall, but I haven't figured out a textile design for it yet.

Summer Days

I found this top at a boutique in Hong Kong in June. It's by the brand Mini Cream. The garment can be worn like this or upside-down. It's symmetrical, so both the top and the bottom have a neckline and snaps- definitely a very unique piece! It's not quite long enough to be a dress, so I layered it over a pair of black bike shorts.
I styled the top and bike shorts with a pair of platform Prada shoes I recently scored at UAL, a discount designer store in Nashville. I'm also wearing a headband I recently made out with some Perler bead shapes and rhinestones, as well as a corsage I made with a mini Croc shoe.
My "Zoe" signature name necklace was a gift from Snake and Fawn. I sent them a picture of my signature, and they made it into a necklace! It's very beautiful, and it's a great piece to layer with other necklaces!

Don't have a cow, ok

 Today I took advantage of the slightly cooler weather, and I wore my new chap jeans! I bought them at Live True Vintage in East Nashville this past weekend. I love clothing items with fuzzy textures, and I was instantly drawn to the faux cow patches on these pants! The graphic, black and white qualities of cow print items make them really easy to style (like in this post from 2011, featuring a cow print coat). Black and white goes with everything!
I styled the pants with a simple black crop top and a neon pink blazer by Tea & Cup, from MUSE Boutique in Nashville. My necklaces are from the Candies x Girl with the Flower collection (as usual). I wear the jewelry from the collection every day! My rhinestone earrings are an antique store find, and my ring is from a beauty supply store. My shoes are Miu Miu; I found them on Ebay! And my handbag is from Aldo. It's a new favorite of mine. I'm a sucker for novelty handbags and accessories, especially ones with eyeball or lip motifs!
The headband I'm wearing in this post is currently for sale on Etsy! I'm in the process of restocking my store with headbands and floral accessories.
