Striped in Berry & Black

Cotton On furry vest | Forever 21 blouse | American Apparel riding pants | H&M booties

I apologize for all the snowy backgrounds! The weekend I decided to shoot outfits in bulk just happened to experience a massive snowstorm as well. I do like how the snow creates a contrast in color from my dark winter looks though. 3 down, 1 to go!

Since it's been so cold and snowy, I wanted to be both comfortable and chic. There's nothing better on a gross winter day than these American Apparel riding pants. Their material is thick enough to help me brave the Northeastern chill, but the high waist and button details make them trendier than leggings. Another huge thanks to my roommate for the 50% off discount! As much as I love American Apparel, I just can't justify spending the money on their products. What do you think?

I decided to pair the riding pants with a chiffon top striped in black and what I like to call "berry". I refuse to accept the fact that the holidays are over. This berry color reminds me of Christmas, although I surrounded it with black pieces to add some edge to the holiday spirit. How have you been spending the first week of 2014? Let me know in the comments below!


  1. I've just been trying to get back into my old routine this week. My sleep schedule is all wonky from the holidays!

    Those riding pants look so warm! I may have to get a pair for when I move to Syracuse. It's going to be a big temperature shock for this Miami girl haha!
