Leather and lace

I have a lot on my mind at the moment. An opportunity presented itself this week and I’ve begun the process for a possible career change. Nothing is guaranteed, and I am worrying about insignificant details. There’s a lot to be thankful for, so why am I so stressed out?

Layered tops, layered thoughts.


Thank you for reading, liking and commenting at Morning Ink this year. It means a lot to me.







Coat: Forever 21
Top: Gap
Pants: J.Crew
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: Target
Earrings: American Eagle

Alright, I’ll admit that this coat won me over when the description said it was schoolgirl inspired. I’m always down for a uniform look. The toggles above the bust create a nice flare when you leave them clasped with the zipper open. I’m impressed that this coat is 45% wool. Good job, F21.

I compiled other duffle coats I had my eye on (all under $200) in a nifty little Mavatar collection:

Taylor Swift lyrics as my blog title post. Yeah, that’s right.

Total deja vu with today’s outfit. Maybe because it looks like the pants version of this one. Sew orig.








Jacket: American Eagle
Shirt: Forever 21
Pants: J.Crew
Boots: Delia’s
Backpack: Target (similar)
Rings: H&M (similar)

The sheer panel on the shoulders of this tee is the perfect amount of edge on an otherwise plain tee. Note to self: Don’t wear a hot pink bra next time I wear this shirt. So visible, so tacky.

I am selfish. I am brave.

This is the second part of my Divergent series. Click here to see my Tori Wu inspired makeup and hair look.

If I had to choose between factions, my stubborn, foolish self would choose Dauntless. It scares me, much like it scared Tris, but I would selfishly abandon a life of comfort for a life of thrill.

As a Dauntless member, I would maintain my femininity with blouses and jewelry. Legging-like pants would allow me to maneuver and climb when needed. My symbol is the star because, well, I already have one tattooed on me so hey, convenience.

Which faction would you be in? What would your style be?

Today is the last day to enter my Divergent makeup kit giveaway. The winner will be notified and announced Wednesday. Good luck.
