Transitional Dressing Ft. MCM

Zara Denim Vest. Zara Skull Tank Top (old). MCM Handbag (vintage). Zara Black Leggings . Nike Air Max 90 Sneakers (similar here). Gold Saturn Ring. Black cuff (old). GAP Wide Brim Hat (similar here). This is probably my favorite time of year but I also find it the most difficult to dress for. I can never quite tell if it is warm or cool out let alone what to wear! So I always tend to dress right in the middle. I love intermingling my summer and fall wardrobes, creating a perfectly chic and casually cool outfit. First off, I just need to take a moment to admire this handbag. I have been obsessed... I mean obsessed with MCM handbags. I completely love that MCM takes such a different approach to fashion; each fashion piece is classic but with a subtle (and slightly edgy) twist. I had been searching non-stop for a handbag that was functional for college yet fashionable and couldn't find anything that wowed me. Then, when I finally stopped searching I found it! I stumbled across this vintage MCM handbag and nearly died of excitement. It was everything I wanted and then some. I even scored a super cute matching makeup bag. Let's just say I lucked out! So enough with the bag... I think you can tell how much I love it and you can tell how perfect it is by the extensive closeup photos I shared with you! I paired this beauty with a simple yet edgy outfit - my favorite wide-brim fedora, oversized jean vest, a super cute tee, and my fave sneakers - and voila, a perfect in-between-summer-and-fall outfit!

Vintage 1990s Moschino Bucket Bag

This past weekend I made the best shopping decision ever; I reluctantly ventured into a quirky consignment boutique. From the outside it looked like an old home, however inside the store was filled with designer goodies - Chanel costume jewelry and handbags, a Versace Versus backpack and much much more. Short and simple... I was in designer heaven. As I was browsing, I stumbled across this vintage Moschino bucket bag. I honestly was shocked considering I have been on the hunt for a black bucket bag for a while and I am obsessed with Moschino so put together this bag is perfection. I scored this bag for only $100. It is a 1990s nylon and leather Moschino Redwall bag in awesome condition and even has the signature gold logo lettering on the handle (Bonus! It matches my belt.).  Overall, you can say it was a great find and I could not be any happier. It was definitely one of my best purchases and I am beyond thrilled.

My Jewelry Box: My Go-To Pieces + Video

When it comes to fashion, jewelry is definitely my guilty pleasure may it be bold rings, classic chain bracelets, or statement bib necklaces. When I walk into a store, I often skip the clothing and jump right to browsing through all of the jewelry pieces. I guess you can say I am just drawn to shiny, pretty things. Here is just a peek inside my jewelry box at some of my {all time} favorite statement jewelry pieces in my collection.  I constantly find myself reaching for these gems probably because when I put them on its like magic happens - BAM ... my outfit is completely transformed!
