R U Mine?

Dear items below,
I want you to be mine.
I go through phases with music. My taste is constantly evolving. One day I'll be all about the pop, another day alternative will be the most played, to trap, folk, or even indie rock/post-punk revival. As of the last few weeks, I've been all about the latter.

As someone who lets music affect more than just her ears and her emotions whilst listening, clothing and style often end up being a reflection of whatever genre is primarily being played. My playlist has influenced my daily wear enough to align with the songs on it. When I think of a style to go with the indie rock genre, I think of the stereotypical "tumblr" look. A balance of urban, contemporary, and grunge play into this mode, as well as minimalist, monochromatic tendencies. Very Los Angeles and New York City. Very badass. This outfit inspiration is meant to capture those attributes.

It occurred to me about two weeks ago that I haven't been to Manhattan in a little over six months! For many that doesn't seem like very long, but as someone who usually makes the trip every two-three months, I'm suffering from withdrawals. Serious NYC deprivation going on right now.

Luckily I'm going for a few days in about a month with my brother and our friends! We'll be stopping by the fashion district (naturally), NoHo, and Chelsea. I've never been to NoHo or Chelsea, so I'm rather excited to see what they're all about. Both are very artsy and unique, with splashes of urban undertones. From the various small shops, independent museums, and the off-off Broadway show we'll be seeing, there will surely be plenty of photo (and possibly video) opportunities. I cannot wait!!

Long story short- I can picture myself rocking this outfit and blasting songs by the bands listed below when I visit my long term man-crush-monday, MANhattan.

Current Favorite Bands:
Arctic Monkeys//Alt-J//Vampire Weekend//The Neighborhood//The Last Shadow Puppets//Miles Kane

Have a lovely day and stay rad!!


Note: "R U Mine?" is a song by the Arctic Monkeys!
