Bag: Thomas Paul,

It's hard to look really feminine when it's super cold out. I'm constantly taking public transportation so it's not like I can go in my car and wear whatever girly thing I want. I feel like there has to be some kind of compromise between being practical (which typically means looking like a marshmallow in zero degree weather) and maintaining your own style. I've always thought my own style was a mixture of tomboy cool and vintage sweetheart. This look may seem really masculine in comparison to my other outfits but I tried incorporating subtle feminine details to make it more me.

The ring and necklace are two of my staple accessories and the bag I DIE for. I've been stalking this tote bag ever since I saw debut on Fred Flare. I waited weeks and weeks before it went on sale from $58 to $20. It's the perfect book bag for school. Details and accessorizing are VERY important to me. I often splurge on a really great accessory as opposed to a trendy piece of clothing. Also, I got that jacket and plaid shirt the same day at Unique Thrift store, both 50% off. The jacket is slightly too big but for $6, I can compromise!


  1. i REALLY love that ring, and the scarf looks so comfy!

  2. SO cute! I love the whole outfit, but that bag! I DIE! love it. Oh and I have those same head phones but in white! I know they are not part of the OOTD! LOL
