What I wore: Denim on denim (on denim)

Vintage denim sack dress: c/o Vintage Jet Set
Cardigan: Urban Outfitters

Jewelry: Thrifted (first seen here)

Boots: Steve Madden

New denim blouse from Maurice's. Haven't quite styled this in a way I love yet!

So, I went a wee bit crazy with the denim mixing trend there for a minute.  These Steve Madden boots aren't actually denim, but I just really like seeing all the shades of denim in one outfit for some reason! I love this material in part, too, because of what it represents: the working class, rural living... I'm curious, what does denim mean to you? These outfits are from short walks/hikes around the neighborhood and one of the local parks. This fabric is the perfect weight for fall temperatures, so I find it super comfortable.  The dress especially is comfy. I really enjoy its simple design, and how my body shape is more vague and concealed than most silhouettes I tend to wear. It was shipped quickly, and the seller I got it from was very pleasant, so if you like vintage goodies and trusted Etsy sellers, I recommend taking a peek at Colleen's shop, Vintage Jet Set!

Studio Tour: One Love

Meet one of my new favorite studios: One Love Yoga in downtown Kent!  This is my refuge between classes - I really like this place.  Not only do they offer Yoga, but it's also a clothing boutique and smoothie/healthy snack stop.  Everything you need in one place, if you ask me! Anyway, if you're ever in the area I highly recommend this studio for its fair prices (awesome student rate!), all of its amenities, and super friendly staff.

What I wore: Spirit Wear

Cropped tee: School bookstore
Skirt: Thrifted
Shoes: Finish Line

Ok ok, so I'm not exactly a freshman this year, but I couldn't help but get a little excited about going to a new school, so I bought a few t-shirts like a nerd.  It has been beastly hot these last few weeks of summer, so this outfit is perfect for trekking around campus in the heat.  The outfit also passed the bike riding test because the skirt has built-in shorts underneath.  It's a bit more sporty than my usual style, so let's just call this active wear, I guess!
