Ballet Night Slytherin

Standard

Continuing on with this classy night out series. Not gonna lie, all of these outfits will pretty much have the same general style. The fuller A-line skirt with the tighter and smaller shirt work so well together to create that ballerina effect. This velour top is particularly reminiscent of dancers’ leotards. Perfect way to bring the looks from the stage into your street style!

The silver jewelry matches the nail polish, but not in a totally obvious way. I added in a darker lip, which seemed very Slytherin to me. I don’t wear lipstick often myself, but I think I would feel very glam in this color. Hope you like it, and get excited for the second half of the series!

Winter Wonderland Hufflepuff

Standard

Although the days are finally getting longer, winter is still in full swing, so here’s the next installment in the Winter Wonderland Series. As usual, I’ve included some pretty feminine touches with the bow and the gorgeous patterned tights. I absolutely love the yellow pea coat with the cute polka dot scarf and it seemed wrong to pair it with anything but a skirt. The first outfit is much more casual with the slouchy sweater and hat and cozy boots. Hope you like it!

Winter Wonderland Slytherin

Standard

Here’s our second post in the Winter Wonderland Series. Again, we have a more practical, cozy outfit and a dressier outfit. A note about the snow booties: I personally would never be able to pull off heeled snow boots, but I saw them and they just screamed “Slytherin” to me. Since it can be difficult to find matching shades of green, I used subtle elements like the earrings and ring. I hope you like it!

Comfy Cozy Hufflepuff

Standard

It’s snowing!! It’s definitely the season for getting comfy, snuggling up by the fire and watching the world turn into a winter wonderland. Unfortunately it’s also the season for stuffy noses and sore throats…but the cozy clothes usually make me feel a little better.

First of all, can we just talk about how cute these gingerbread leggings are?? I had to use them in this outfit, even after I had already planned out something completely different. They are so fun and festive. Since they are such a bold pattern though, everything else needs to be very toned down and basic. Don’t ask me why there is a Boston pillow in there…I’m just missing my city right now 😦 I hope you like it and that you are staying warm and safe if you are in a snowy climate like me!

First of all, a belated Happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope everyone got to spend time with their families and give thanks and appreciate all that you have. Sorry that it’s been forever since my last post…I’ve been a little distracted and focused on things like those pesky grad school applications…

Anyway, here is the next installment of the Comfy Cozy Series. It’s definitely starting to feel like the Holidays around here in CT especially since we got some snow last night! This obviously just encourages snuggling even more, so you’ve got to have the appropriate snuggling attire. This Slytherin outfit came together really quickly as soon as I found that snarky sweater. I imagine that Slytherins might outwardly act rather aloof about everything festive, (maybe it’s the grinch color) while inside they secretly love it! The slippers add a touch of bling, always appropriate for a Slytherin outfit, and the abstract throw seals the deal for this cuddly ensemble. I hope you like it!

Cozy Autumn Ravenclaw

Standard

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but Fall is my absolute favorite season! I love the beautiful New England foliage, the comfy sweaters, and the excessive amounts of pumpkin recipes. I also love fall fashion. It is incredibly easy to be perfectly cozy and cute at the same time, and so much fun too!

This outfit is so great because the giant cable knit sweater will protect against the cold if the plaid shirt isn’t enough! I will never get tired of plaid. I will consider it a wardrobe staple until I die. Not sorry. I’m also obsessed with scarves, and this infinity scarf is very in fashion right now, and super comfy. I hope you like it!

Back to School Gryffindor

Standard

This is the last post in my Back to School series and it was definitely a fun one to end on. I know I’ve said this multiple times, but Gryffindor colors have a special place in my heart since they remind me of my alma mater. Recently I’ve actually bought multiple maroon/scarlet tops which is probably some subconscious attempt to feel like I’m back at BC. I’m actually wearing a very comfy maroon sweater right now…

Anyway, this outfit is really simple but that’s why I love it. I’m definitely a classic jeans and t-shirt kind of girl so in the fall my go-to outfit is basically something you see right here. A comfy sweater with jeans and flats is a very easy yet cute outfit when the weather is still fairly warm. The studs on the shoulders add a little extra element without much effort. The back pack is very simple too which is why I added that scarf. I like tying ribbons or scarves to things to add some extra color and interest so I would definitely tie the scarf to the backpack to add a fun pattern to the outfit. I’ve also probably mentioned bows multiple times but I can’t help it, I love them! Also, how could I forget that distinctly Gryffindor flair…the lion necklace! It’s a small touch but it definitely adds a lot. I hope you like it!

Back to School Slytherin

Standard

Well, here’s my second post in this Back to School Series. Slytherin is always fun for me because I like to mix up the girly and edgy elements (think Pansy Parkinson). This outfit is great because it has those fun flirty aspects in the lace headband and the ruffles on the shirt, but it is far from cookie cutter. The bold green pants and the clashing patterns of polka dots and stripes elevate the ensemble to something a littler harder to pull off. The camera stud earrings are unconventional but still super cute and the bright nail polish adds that fun pop of color to go along with the pants. I myself don’t own a pair of colored jeans but I think they are super fun and add a quirky element to an outfit, especially if they are bright green like these! I hope you enjoy the outfit and are getting excited about fall fashion!

Cute Ravenclaw

Standard

Ok so honestly I love this outfit mostly because of the shoes. Seriously, these shoes absolutely scream Ravenclaw! Well done Jessica Simpson. (maybe she’s a Harry Potter fan!) Anyway so even though the shoes basically make the outfit, they work really well with the other elements. Ravenclaw is fun because blue jeans are an easy way to incorporate a piece of the house colors. This sleeveless blouse is also adorable. I recently bought a similar one in white and I absolutely love it. It’s an easy way to look cute but still be super comfy, always one of my top priorities. The necklace is also really fun since it incorporates the feathers (I’m pretty sure those are actually feathers this time and not leaves). Of course the purse adds that pop of color that you know I love, especially since it’s yellow! Anyway so overall this is just a really fun, cute outfit, that could be worn on a night out with girlfriends or even for a first date. I’m definitely more of a jeans and cute top girl than fancy dress for dates, so this one is right up my alley. Hope you like it!

Casual Gryffindor

Standard

Since Summer is basically here, florals are definitely going to be a staple in my wardrobe. Actually, florals are pretty much in my wardrobe all year long, but during the Spring/Summer they actually fit well with the weather. Anyway, for me, florals can really be dressed up or down. Here I use them in a casual, easy going outfit. The lacy TOMS are just adorable and the fringe bag adds a sort of seventies, hippy vibe to the whole thing. So here’s a casual summer Gryffindor outfit, hope you enjoy it and get your florals on!
