The time has come to break out the leather guys! Like most bloggers, a (vegan) leather jacket is the best thing that has ever happened to my closet and I hate not being able to wear mine. Thankfully the humid summer days are gone and I'm starting to transition my sundresses into fall. This one from Urban is especially easy to wear in all seasons because of it's b+w print.

New take on a classic

Untitled #14465

One of my favorite things about fashion is how designers can reinvent a classic piece into something cutting edge and current. My style has always relied on wearing basic pieces with a little bit of a twist, and I think this season has some great examples of that! A classic plain blazer can be swapped for a cool understated checked one, and your everyday denim jacket can be replaced by one with shearling details. These small adjustments to the classics can turn a good outfit into a great one! Here are some ways I'd style them, hope this inspires you to try some new things for fall! xx Flo

Details, Details // Rocksbox

As most of you know, my style is very minimalist so when Rocksbox asked if I wanted to be part of their jewlery subscription launch I didn't know what to expect. When I think of jewelry, what first comes to mind is chunky statement necklaces, hoop earrings and watches that weigh 50 pounds.. none of which are really my cup of tea. However after taking their personal style survey and receiving my box, I am beyond happy! Everything I got is completely my style, dainty, intricate and simple. You might have seen these pieces in my last few outfit posts, and now you know where they're from!

Till next month, RB xx Flo

GARAGE tee / jeans / flannel, UO jacket, BIRKENSTOCK sandals, PROENZA SCHOULER bag

Today's look is almost head to toe Garage! When I went to their store on Friday I wanted to get some versatile pieces that I could wear through my fall school days, and I think I succeeded! They have all different kinds of jeans but of course I went for the high rise black pair (I was tempted to rip the knees but decided not to). This stripe tee is my favorite item I own at the moment.. it's so loose and long, I can't wait to wear it with some coated black leggings and a oversized jumper when it starts to get chilly outside.

Garage Opening // Natick MA

Garage clothing invited me to celebrate their Natick store tonight and I had so much fun! Along with a couple of my followers (and a lot of Demi Lovato fans) we shopped, took a bunch of pictures and hung out. As someone who does most of their styling / fashion interaction online, it is really exciting for me to meet people in person and talk with them.

The store is completely my style and has some of the best back-to-school picks out there. From baseball tees with check minis to high rise jeans and jumpers, they've got it covered. Of course I picked up some things, and you will definitely see them in an upcoming outfit post! Here are some pictures I took of their awesome store:

How to wear: Two tone Denim

As a little departure from the denim-on-denim look, designers like Margiela and Chloé have created pieces that have the layered hues all in one. It can be a stark contrasting look with layered patches, or an subtle ombre effect on sleeves and pant legs. Either way I love how the different tones look mixed with stripes, distressed denim and some tough looking ankle boots. Here are some ways I'd style the two-tone denim trend:

This week / last week have marked the ending of Summer for me.. soon I'll be back at school, spending my time running around trying to keep everything in balance. I'm really going to miss the simplicity of summer dressing; playsuits, boots, dresses and not having to bundle up (hopefully this winter won't be as intense as last year). Of course one thing definitely won't change: all black.

playsuit - Boohoo (25% off at the moment)
bralette - f21
aviators - Ray-ban
boots - Dolce Vita

Uniqlo comes to Boston


Last night I went to the Uniqlo pop up store in honor of their company expanding in the Boston area! It was so fun to meet everyone there and look at all the clothes. My style is all about mixing basics, layering and keeping it simple so I love the direction Uniqlo is going in. Here are some photos I took:
