LAYERS ON LAYERS ON LAYERS


Tis the season to wear your whole closet all at once! I'm not a big fan of hot weather, nor am I of dressing for hot weather so as soon as a the cold wind rolls around and the leaves hit the ground, I am in my element. Now typically my layering sequence for a cozy outfit like this would be: tee, denim shirt, hoodie and then jacket-optional depending on the weather, but today I decided to get ~real adventurous an switch it up. I'm rocking sequence: tee, hoodie, and then denim shirt, which is basically the same outfit, just a little bit fresher.

THE SUPER FLEA


The Super Flea is a weekly flea market hosted by the homegirls Kelli and Bronwen of 1-800-HELL-NO at The Super Wonder Gallery. Every Sunday it's the place to be if you're into the fun and the flashy. A curated collection of vendors bring you the raddest selection of everything from vintage fashion, one of a kind pieces and locally designed art and apparel, to streetwear (a wild Supreme tee appeared but a hypebeast beat me to it) and all the Jeffrey Campbell shoes your little toes could imagine.

With a tagline like "Get lit and buy shit," you know this is not going to be your average flea market experience. Good vibez, good tunes, and a splash of booze makes this flea market meets party the best way to to spend a Sunday evening.

THREE STRIPES - YOU'RE OUT



I wore this comfy outfit to run a couple of errands and then to cute patio lunch with my cousin - shout out to my cousin for accompanying me down a weird alley off of Church St. to take these photos, LOL.

I picked up this loose fit Adidas crop top recently at Gravity Pope because I saw hella outfit potential. It is the perfect length for my body, in that it hits just above where my fave high waisted skinnies sit, and it's got the classic triple stripe down the arms instead of the usual screen printed front logo you'd see on a piece like this. I think it creates a really minimal and cohesive side profile when paired with my Anti Social Social Club hat. I may wear it with a PVC mini skirt and a cute pair of ankle boots to a party this weekend. I'll keep you posted! ;)

More photos and outfit details after the jump!

BRAIDED UP


Do you ever have a have a sudden vision of yourself with a certain hairstyle or outfit and then make it your mission to turn it into reality? I definitely do, and this was one of those looks.

All summer I've been talking about wanting to wear my hair in braids the way I did when I was a kid for a few reasons:

1. It's low maintenance AF. No heat and very little product needed to maintain the steez.
2. It keeps your natural tresses tucked away and protected from the #sus elements Mother Nature insists on imposing on us.
3. It allows you to experiment with colours and lengths with literally no commitment and no damage.
4. I am still caught in my infamously endless cycle of bangs - currently growing them out again. Having my weird in between length bangs braided back and out of my face is super helpful.
5. I've recently been trying to embrace my culture more, and being a fashion/beauty blogger, experimenting with more traditionally black hairstyles is an accessible way to do just that.
