Seance Chic

It’s said that the moons energy lasts from three days before the full moon to three days after the full moon. This is a beautiful thing, especially on a chilly November Saturday when the river beckons you to come and bask in the energy of mother moon. As a student/blogger/intern/social media user, I spend an absurd amount of time on my computer. When the season shifts from summer to fall, I am made well aware of how little time I spend outside. Although I walk a lot on campus, I’m not enjoying the beauty of the season as much as I should be. I’m making an effort to go and explore more and yesterday, the twin and I did just that.1504995_10152859629456115_5784457175710925700_nI wore all black to spend the day with my sister and to explore near the river. The leaves are finally changing and it finally feels appropriate. The next couple months are so chock full of change that it’s a strangely comforting sentiment that the world understands too. I’ve been all about textures on textures when I’m wearing black, and I paired my favorite fuzzy sweater with a dress my mom gave me, some black thigh high knee socks and tights and my favorite oversize black hat. This outfit made me feel like a Death Queen on her way to a seance, and that’s not something I’m gonna complain about.821612111098734Swearer: H&M/ Tights and socks: Forever 21/ Necklace: Zara/ Hat: Vintage

Sunday Style; Dancing into Creation

Sundays call for sleeping in and spending time with loved ones. They call for big, goofy smiles and living from a place of love. Sundays are for slow moments sipping coffee, and nights celebrating friends birthdays. Sundays are for embracing what you love and letting it light you up.

 We were inspired by Nataraja, a Hindu God and a form of Shiva who is said to have danced the world into creation.

Death Queen Style Sunday

Hello Breathing Fashionistas, I am so beyond glad to be back and to be, gradually, getting into the blogging grind! I am so excited for the year ahead of me, and I’m so excited to be back in Columbia.  I am also so excited to announce that my amazing friend Morgan Epperson, find her site HERE, is going to be collaborating with me every Sunday as my in house Sunday style photographer! Morgan is not only incredibly sweet and lovable, she is also incredibly talented and a fellow Fashion Board member. Today, we shot in my backyard, yes I have train tracks and a graveyard in my backyard, and I’m so happy with how amazing the photos turned out! I felt like today was a perfect day for a gauzy tank top, Carven inspired shorts and my Lita’s;  proper death queen attire

I keep forgetting I don’t have class tomorrow, which is super nice, and I’ve spent today with my twin at brunch and relaxing. I get to go to yoga later, spend the night with some friends and I’m looking forward to what the night holds!

First Day of Fourteenth Grade

Today was my first day of classes, and I had to find the perfect outfit to wear. I only had one class today, since I’m taking three online, and I wanted to find the perfect mix of “don’t mess with me” and “please buy me coffee if you’re in line in front of me”. I don’t want to scare anyone away, but I don’t want to look basic either.I ended up wearing a silk tee shirt, some Carven inspired shorts, my quilted bag and my combat boots.
