Tribal Days

Dress: c/o August Wrinkle - get it HERE
Jean Jacket: Forever21
Boots: Guess?
Necklace: Forever21

 We have been having the wackiest weather the past few weeks! From rainy and high 30s/low 40s to sunny and mid to upper 50s/60s. I can't keep up! I've started layering up, that way my outfits are more accommodating to the ever changing temps. After a week straight of rain, I was so excited to see it clear  up and warm up this past weekend.

I recently received this dress from August Wrinkle, and have been dying to wear it. This dress is definitely one of those pieces that is extremely versatile. While I'm so excited to layer it up with tights and chunky sweaters on colder days, this weekend it was just warm enough to wear it with a jean jacket and combat boots. Telling you I love this dress is the understatement of the year... I am OBSESSED with this dress! The vibrant tribal print, fit and feel make this dress one of those pieces that you could easily live in for the next month or so. It's one of those pieces that just makes you feel pretty while wearing it...those are the best kind, in my opinion:)

If you haven't checked out August Wrinkle, do so now! They have quickly become one of my favorite online boutiques for their charming and unique high quality pieces.

Weekend Getaway and a Giveaway Winner!

Sweater: Frenchi via Nordstroms - find HERE
Jeans: Bullhead Black via PacSun
Scarf: Old Navy (Find a similar version HERE)
Boots: Guess 
Ring: Giza Ring via Jewelmint - get it HERE

This weekend I made the 3.5 hour trek to visit my boyfriend at college. As I recently graduated from the same college, it was nice being back to my old stomping grounds. I had a great time with the boy, but it was definitely hard to leave Sunday afternoon. Long distance relationships are hard and while Skype, phone calls and texts help to make things easier, they are definitely no comparison to being face to face! 

If any of you follow me on Instagram (@twentiesgirlstyle) you might have seen a little sneak peak of this outfit as this is one of the outfits I wore on my weekend getaway. I'm pretty much obsessed with the color combination of purple, black and leopard. I also love the addition of the combat boots I recently re-discovered in a box under my bed. Not sure how these managed to get lost, but I am so glad to have found be honest, they are pretty much all I have been wearing since the re-discovery! 

Also, I ran out of room on Blogger/Picasa for my pictures! I used Photobucket to upload, but noticed they were deleted this morning and had to re-upload. I'm sure many of you have run into this problem, so what are your solutions? Do you use Photobucket or some other uploading site or pay the extra to get a bigger Picasa storage? Help! 

On another note, I am so excited to announce the winner of the $25 Rire Boutique gift certificate, Ali from The Drawing Mannequin! Congrats Ali, I can't wait to see what you spend your gift certificate on!!

Lady Leather

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Tobi 'Vegan Leather Skater Skirt' - sold out but look for restock HERE
Shoes: Madden Girl - from last winter
Bracelets: Stretchy spike bracelet - ebay and Houdini Bracelet - via Jewelmint

 Yeah...I know... It's what I do.

A trend I'm pretty much obsessed with this fall? LEATHER (fake 'vegan' leather is okay with me too). Too bad the only piece to grace my closet this season as of yet is this 'vegan skater skirt' from (one of my new favorite online shops). I love that this skirt is leather, but totally ladylike! Expect to see this pretty little number a ton this fall/winter because I am in LOVE. I love the look of it with pretty much everything, but really enjoyed it paired with this flannel and booties. My bracelet, the 'Houdini' from Jewelmint, adds a very special touch...seriously though, how awesome is it?!

Shop My Closet!!

There comes a time when pieces of clothing in our closet aren't getting as much love as they need and deserve a new home. With this in mind, I decided to open my own Shop My Closet for Twenties Girl Style! All pieces featured below can be found at Shop Twenties Girl Style. They are all pre-owned (by me...obviously!), and in pretty good condition, unless noted otherwise! I'm starting small, with just four pieces, but expect new additions to the store in the coming months!

Size: Small
Originally from: Forever 21

A gorgeous, one-shoulder dress in a metallic brocade print. The best feature? Pockets! I wore this dress to my boyfriend's fraternity formal. I purchased it at Forever 21 and it was one of the more pricey pieces I have ever purchased from there. 

Size: Small
Originally from: Target

An adorable tunic/dress in rich colors that is perfect for fall! A smocked top and removable straps make this piece very versatile. Wear it as a skirt, dress, strapless dress, or top! I love it paired with a good chambray and tights and boots for the colder months!

Size: Small
Originally from: Nordstroms (Brass Plum)

A pretty, pale pink ruffled skirt adorned with charming ruffles! This skirt is very easy to dress up or down!

Size: Small
Originally from: Forever 21

This Forever 21 dress is brand new with the tags still attached! The grey and black colors allow this dress to be paired with any pop of color and the ruffle detailing at the top adds an adorable touch.

Like any of these pieces? Pick them up HERE at Shop Twenties Girl Style or under the Shop My Closet tab!
