I’m not always “on”.

As a matter of fact, I prefer baseball caps to fedoras and joggers over gowns. Still, as much as I’d like to claim a commitment to glam, day in and day out, that’s neither true nor realistic. That’s what’s great about balance: whether that be in one’s own personal endeavors or stylistically.

That’s why for today’s look, I thought I’d go ahead and mesh my two style sides: minimal glam, maximum comfort.edgy-roof-moschino-1455Who says hoodies are just for lounging and grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s. Why not spruce up one of my weekend wardrobe essentials for a look that I could rock once the errands are complete. edgy-roof-moschino-1428-2-2I paired my Russell’s hoodie with a pair of self-destressed, thrifted jeans. These are a lot of fun to play with and with the open concept on the knees, I imagine pairing these with fishnet pantyhoses in the near future (that’s one 2017 trend that I’m here for). edgy-roof-moschino-1462

I’m a choker addict and I lean on this particular neck snatcher to complete 90% of my daily looks.edgy roof + moschino-1394-2-2 (1).jpgIn this case, I’ve gone with a silver palette: silver choker and minimal studs. The choker speaks for itself, so no need for competition. Since it’s insultingly cold in the city, it was only right (and safe) to add oversized outerwear and a touch of fur to complete the look. edgy-roof-moschino-1479-2edgy-roof-moschino-1442 Oh! And my Max Mara shades cause even when it’s cloudy, I still shine, baby.

when i first set out to create my blog, i just wanted an outlet to balance my mundane college schedule. but over the years, it has become so much more. writing is how i process my world & the events that take place within it. through aleyarion.com, i seek to help my fellow 20-somethings, like me, working to find light when their paths seem darkened and learn from my mistakes so i can save you the trouble of repeating them. aleyarion.com is witty, vulnerable, and transparent, but most importantly, it's me, unapologetically. peace, peace, peace Aley Arion business inquiries: aleyarion@gmail.com
