Chambray x Leather

 

On Wednesday while I was hanging out with my two friends Gwen and Heather, I decided to do an impromptu OOTD post since we were walking around tons of graffiti. It reminded me of last year when I took pictures at 5 Pointz. Sadly, 5 Pointz is no more but there is an area of Bushwick that reminds me of that place and that is all thanks to The Bushwick Collective. This collective is a street art project from that features artists all over the world. The artwork is beautiful and I just had to take some pictures.


I received this statement necklace from Bound.la, which is a company founded and created by Emma Denvir that creates jewelry made out of wood. All of her pieces are handmade and very unique. I never heard of a company that creates jewelry out of wood, so I was very excited to collaborate with her and see one of her pieces up close. Plus her jewelry is gorgeous! I picked out the Duplex necklace because I feel like I can wear it with lots of different outfits. I based my whole outfit around this necklace because I wanted the necklace to be the focus of the outfit.

 

Chambray and leather have been on trend for a while now and I felt like this outfit would compliment the necklace very well together. It was a bit cold out so I had to wear a pair of tights as well as one of my favorite booties. Since the outfit was feeling a little dark, I decided to add a subtle pop of color with a purple bag.

 

 

While we were out, I had to take some pictures of the artwork and share with you guys. And of course, I couldn’t be serious in all of my pictures so I included so of the goofy ones as well. I don’t know I find it hard to take pictures for my blog sometimes because I’m always stiff. I get awkward in front of the camera, but I’m trying to shake it off *cue Taylor Swift song*.
