fashion obsessions

"I let it fall, my heart, and as it fell you rose to claim it. It was dark and I was over, until you kissed my lips and you saved me."
- "Set Fire to the Rain", Adele

Ah. This song is absolutely amazing. Adele's voice is breathtakingly beautiful as always, but in this song, it brims with so much emotion that I just want to snuggle up into the nook of my bed and cry. Dayummm that girl can sing. Please listen to this song. Especially when it's crashing thunder and pouring down rain. Try with It will blow your mind. (:

Anyway. Today I was in the unfortunate event of walking outside in the whipping winds with my friend, and I, of course, chose this day to wear these paper thin jeans. God, I'm so freaking brilliant. And while sub-zero tempertures are not ideal for the flowy tank tops that I absolutely adore, they are perfect for layering.

But before I go into today's fashion obsessions, a little background on my style:
Usually my style is very, girly? I want to say, but with a little more refinement.

Lace is literally my favorite texture to add, especially if its cream colored, along with some floral print, or ruffled tops, preferably a baby pink color. That picture above is basically all the things I love about fashion, all in captured in one photo. And while I still adore these items, I've kind of moved on from this girliness to being intrigued with a more dark, sophisiticated look.

And lately, my inspiration has been Aria from the show Pretty Little Liars, and while I will not get into my feelings about that show, I will give props to this girl because her style is so fearless. Bohemian and flowy, while theatrical and bold, all rooted in a dark, mysterious undertone. Yes please.

I love her feather earrings, and personally, I think she boosted the feather earring trend singlehandedly, but I could completely wrong. The textures and mix of prints look like she just picked up random pieces scattered across her bedroom floor and threw it on. So jealous. Another TV icon who has this amazing talent, Serena Van Der Woodsen aka Blake Lively. Love love love that girl.

So along those, I just woke up from bed with my perfectly tousled beach waves, threw on some random, but incredibly chic and spot-light stealing pieces, and headed out the door with a skinny Starbucks Peppermint Mocha in hand (which I LOVE, btw), lines, they are like my fashion idols.

But back to winter and layering, these scarves are gorgeous, and they add so much texture, boldness and that extra pop of color to an otherwise simple outfit. Plus, they're so fluffy and thick that you're all bundled up for those freezing winter temps. The black (navy?) skinnies and charcol colored sweater go along with the dark-Aria-theme, so what's not to love?! Now doesn't that look so cozy on freeze-your-ass-off days?
