What I Wore Wednesday: Denim and Summers End

Ah, the bittersweet (mostly bitter) realization looming in the air. It’s the last day of summer. In 12 hours I will be on my way to my first 8am of the semester. But alas, there’s a silver lining; it’s my last first day of school. Senior year of college, what a thought. It feels even more appropriate now to continue wearing black, all the time no exceptions, to mourn the passing of both summer and the past 15 years of my life which have been filled with school. 2I made my twin Alexandra Herstik take some photos of me the other day because I don’t wear my glasses often and I felt kinda cute. You know how sometimes that happens and you need photographic proof of it? Exactly. I never wear denim… except when I’m wearing this jacket, or my one pair of black Topshop jeans, or a pair of really sick torn up, high waisted, bleached denim I scored for $7, which I still need to post about. Anyway, back to this jacket- I was talking to my friend Zach about how I wanted a denim jacket and he said his mom gave him one from the 80’s and had no use for it, how fitting. I got some really cool pins from a lovely lady named Scout, and I added my Vivienne Westwood pin from Search and Destroy in New York. I threw on a Topman tee with my favorite shorts and shoes, both from Urban, and I wore my Zara bag with it. I topped this outfit off with a gold collar necklace by Marc Jacobs I got while I was in New York this summer.

Anyway. Summer’s almost over and I don’t really know what to think of it. It was a whirlwind of traveling and new experiences, people, internships, kicking people out (if it doesn’t serve ya..) and mostly just living. It’s been an incredible summer, the best yet, and although I’m not necessarily excited about school, I am in my own sort of special way. College is such a time of transition and impermanence… it’s strange being present and living somewhere that manages to feel so temporary. I’m right where I need to be though, and I’m where I would have wanted to be my freshman year; that’s a pretty nice realization. 1 9 7 6 5 4 310

Here’s to the best last first day there is, and here’s to the best twin there is.

What I’m Wearing Wednesday; Instagram Edition

Having a job where you wear a uniform is great for a few reasons. Namely, you don’t have to figure out what to wear everyday, and when you have an off day you can go all out. I’ve been doing my best to start documenting my outfits via Instagram once again, and thought it would be worth it to share them on here as well. I bought this incredible purse at work, Zara, since we’re having our sale and I’m obsessed. If you’re lucky enough to have a Zara near you, GO! I wish i was exagerating when I said the whole store is on sale..but I’m not. Be nice to the employees and go wild! Amazing pieces are up.





What have you been wearing?!

Namaste,

Gabriela
