Boyfriend's Iron Maiden tee, Vintage jacket & Coach bag, gifted Vanessa Mooney Clara & Diamond in the Rough necklaces, vintage rings, gifted Aryn K skirt, Qupid flats


I visited Natalie in her new pad uptown this past weekend and she thought it'd be a good idea to take a stroll around Carl Schurtz park, an incredibly beautiful and lush park that I am totally jealous of her for living by. It's like Alice in Wonderland with all of its winding paths and trees to peer under. Later on after our stroll, we realized we were both wearing Iron Maiden shirts ('cause we're awesome)

...Except once again, I am stealing from my boyfriend.
I don't really listen to Iron Maiden on the regular, which makes me kind of a narcissist for wearing this shirt, but I've always loved Eddie the Head, so there's that. My boyfriend has had this shirt for a loooong time, you can tell from the holes along the bottom of it from years of snagging on his belt buckle, something I can't help but love.

 I went a little '90s with the styling by adding my mom's old Coach backpack from high school and my beloved Vanessa Mooney necklaces. I first saw the Diamond in the Rough necklace back when I visited Free People's headquarters last year and totally fell head over heels for its unique design. I can't help but love the bright thread knotted along the drippy silver chain. And ya gotta love the Clara collection, of course for the obvious reason but mostly because the texture of the orbs resembles some ancient African artwork by the Nok and Edo peoples that I found myself admiring last year during my art history classes. You can learn more about that here. I normally wear these two together with the longer necklace wrapped twice around my neck like a choker. Now, if only I could learn to ride a skateboard and be convincing....

Half girly/feminine... & half rebel/grunge... I love it!

And I especially love that the tee is from your beau... it makes the outfit more personal.

Her Iron Maiden printed t-shirts looks wonderful on that dress. The skirt also looks fantastic with that jeans jacket. I really love her fashion sense.
