Five Black Essentials

J. Crew Cashmere Scarf - For any outfit, this scarf is the perfect accessory. Thin and soft, it adds another layer and more depth to any outfit. Whether for accessorizing purposes or warmth purposes, I've worn this scarf to death. 

Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Too Hot To Handle' Bag - For more casual days, I don't leave my house without this bag. This buttery leather bag stores everything I need, without getting too bulky!

Topshop Bag - For a more structured look, I am obsessed with this Topshop bag. It's not too big or small, and it is the epitome of classy and chic.

 Black Leather Converse - For days when I want to be quick on my feet, these shoes are my go-to pair. The leather adds just the right amount of sleekness, making them not your average sneaker.
Frye 'Phillip' Harness Boot - For everyday chic, these flats boots do it all. They're simple to dress up or down, and not to mention, they are incredibly comfortable. I can't imagine this season without them!


Triple tiered necklaces

I generally stay away from jewelry because it seems too tedious, but today I changed my mind. After putting on my Buddha necklace, I gravitated towards this dark red stone,. Then finally , I found the perfect long chain to finish it off. Suddenly, three necklaces completely changed one of my favorite outfits. Awhile ago, I cut this dress to make it more my style. Even with my "edits," it's still very lace-y, which is why I adore pairing it with my studded leather boots. Putting something so sweet with something so edgy is the perfect balance the two ways I love dressing.


What I'd Wear: Erin Wasson x RVCA shirt

This is something I have wanted to do for awhile, and I finally came around to starting it. In these posts, I will photograph a piece from my wardrobe accompanied with what I would like to wear it with. Part of being 17 years old is a limited wallet. Through "What I'd Wear," I will channel what I'd recommend wearing with pieces that resemble my own, while also exploring how I would ideally style them myself.

An affinity for sneakers

If you have not noticed, I love pairing everything with sneakers. I am unsure as to whether I enjoy the comfort or the assurance that I will not fall due to a heel. Regardless, I always find myself slipping on a pair of sneakers instead of more "appropriate" shoes. Sneakers bring such give off a very laid-back feel, which I attempt to incorporate into my outfits. Although the past few sentences have been devoted to my feet, I also wish to highlight my go-to headband. No matter the hair style or outfit, I always find myself gravitating towards this head wrap and its ability to liven up anything.
