The Devil & God

If there's one thing that can be said about my style, it's probably that I LOVE color. Which is why this outfit was so much fun to wear. All black everything truly makes you feel like a bad ass. Plus someone told me I looked goth, so I think I was successful in pulling off the look.

This shirt is from a show in 2006? Maybe? From one of the most influential bands of my teen years, Brand New. If you've never listened to Brand New, I'm sorry and you should get hip. Okay, I'm kidding, but seriously that band made high school awesome. And sad. And beautiful.

Oh, and these photos were taken right behind my university! They rebuilt this bridge recently and it's just AWESOME. Though incredibly cold and windy. I always have a blast exploring downtown Akron for photos.

Outfit Details:
Skirt: Thrifted (American Eagle)
Jacket: BB Dakota

  3. I love this outfit!! You look rockin'! And that bridge is like, the coolest place *ever* for photographs! I'm slightly jealous. ;)r

  4. I loooove Brand New, I listened to them so much when I was younger and got super into them again last summer. I love this outfit, the all black does look badass, and that skirt is amazing :)

  5. I will never get enough of this flower crown! It's super weird to see you in all black but I think you know how to make "goth" look girly... If that makes any sense!

  6. You look awesome in black! I love that it's kind of a change for you and I especially love that you wore a floral crown with kind of a tough look. Such a cool combination.

  7. So fun to see you wear something that is in a different style (but I love that you have flowers in your hair to make it still very you.) It is always fun to see people take risks like this. And, yes, you look very tough!

  8. I feel the exact same way about head to toe black. I own a lot of bright colors and prints that every now and then I can't believe how simple and chic an all black outfit can feel and look. I just wore black on black to work the other day and wondered why I don't do it more often, plus it's so fun to accessorize! You did a great job balancing the pretty and the edgy.

  9. I feel ya. I like when I end up wearing neutrals. It feels both freeing and a little lonely only wearing black, but it usually turns out awesome! I love your rocker-esque look today. Great backdrop too!

  10. you look tough! but cute. i like the flower crown! <3

  11. I loved Brand New in high school as well, I'm going to have to listen to them again!

  12. I love the combo of the sweet flower crown with studded jacket :)

  13. yes, brand new! I was going to finish your title. The devil and god...are raging inside me? But then you mentioned them :) they're one of my faves! I just saw them live this past summer for $5!! It was incredible. And they came with Manchester orchestra! Seriously one of the best concerts ever. The no seatbelt song is probably one of my favorites songs ever!!
    Anyway, enough about music. You pull off the badass look so easily! Everytime I try I just look and feel ridiculous. I love the tee of course , and the skirt and floral crown are such a perfect compliment!

  14. I love that you can rock all black, and then add a sweet floral crown-how perfect is that! Plus, I'm kinda crushing on those boots. They're great.

  15. Love your combination of the feminine flower crown and tough leather jacket, just perfect!

    Have a lovely week,

  16. LOVE LOVE LOVE! I am a big time fan of the "gothic" look, and that floral crown adds the perfect girly touch. Apparently I needed to get hip a long time ago;) also, I was wondering about GFC! Thank goodness:)

  17. So bad ass. I really think you should play with black like this more often, because i love it. especially with you long brown hair.

  18. I love Brand New! They formed my high school years as well.
    And I think you look great! The background is beautiful too!


  19. Oh my! What an amazing outfit! I love those booties! And I can't believe you thrifted that skirt! I want! -Jessica L

  20. Ah, what an awesome city look! I love the floral crown, just the right touch of femininity.
    Didn't we all have a Brand New phase? :)

  21. I'm right there with you with the colorful outfit love, but I enjoy dressing in black once in a while too. It makes me feel like a bad ass which is the opposite of what I am. I pretend I'm cool and that's good enough for me. You look absolutely cool in this all black outfit. I love how you've styled your band t-shirt and this skirt is so pretty!

  22. I love the way the rest of the world fades out from your photos, like you are the only solid thing there.
    I love the rocker look on you, especially with the one 'soft' addition of the flower headband. I've been reviving a bit of punk into my outfits lately. I am with you - it feels badass and so much fun to just 'goth up' some days when normally it is all SO BRIGHT! :)

  23. I love how you wore a flower headband with a rocker kidn of outfit. How fun! And Brand New - oh high school :D I definitely did a project where I somehow made a Brand NEw song an analogy to Julius Caesar......yeah.......high school me was slightly off.

    I think I drove down this bridge Saturday night and it is crazy pretty. I recognized it right away.

  24. I love Brand New! They are so good; I got into them in middle school when I would drive around to marching band practice with my brother who was in high school at the time. Actually, they are going to be at Penn State in April for free! My school is about 30 minutes away so I'm hoping that my roomie and I go, especially since I have a lot of friends that go to Penn State.


  25. you look AWESOME. and there is something about black that totally makes me feel like a hard a. so cool

  26. I love Brand New! Last year it was probably my most played station on Pandora. Memories XD

    My favorite outfits are always usually all black. What makes that outfit amazing is that shoes/headband/jacket combo. Love it!
