You see my face like a heart attack

I started playing with the lens I got this year for Christmas and it is love. Real love.

I seriously adore this blazer I got fro missguided. It is not as thick as I wished it would be but the cut is so perfect I can get over that and wear a coat over the top. The color is the perfect burgundy and the boyfriend cut is to die for. AND IT HAS POCKETS. Every girls dream is for all of their clothes to have pockets and if they say otherwise they are lying through their teeth because pockets are life. (Literally do not get me started on the necessity of larger pockets for girls pants I could rage for days.) But I will refrain and instead wish you all a lovely day and I will see you again soon.

A Good Kind of Mess

*cliche alert* New year new start on the blog. I know it's been an awful long time since I posted on here but I definitely plan to change that. It was a long and wild 2014 for me over here at fracturedfashion. Despite going through some of the hardest times of my life I truly feel that 2014 ended up being one of the most important years for me. I grew up a lot this past year and I am excited, ready, and full of ideas for the coming year for both the blog and my personal life. So look forward to seeing more posts here and a little more insight into my life. 

One major highlight for this year is my job at H&M. I started as a seasonal employee and just recently got promoted to a permanent position! I am working on pursuing a career in fashion and being able to see the trends as the pop up in stores is really really cool. Also I am learning a lot about styling in new ways because I shop a lot at my store, which means that they aren't as unique, and it's really important for me to take the items I am getting and style them in a way no one else does to keep my style interesting. I also have started getting a lot of inspiration from my co workers and all of our different styles and ideas for how to wear things. It is really fun to work with people who like fashion and the behind the scenes work as much as I do. It has really inspired me to commit to pursuing a career in the industry. 

One of my major "resolutions" this year is to spend more time on my photography. I am working on a series right now that I will definitely be sharing on the blog and I am so excited for you guys to see it! My roommate is a photographer as well so I get a lot of inspiration and ideas from her too. Hopefully this year will turn out as well as the last and it will reflect here on my blog. So until we meet again Happy New Year and get ready for a major revamp.

Get The Look // Pinterest Edition

A simple and slightly overdone grunge inspired outfit I know. But I can't resist plaid, studs, and classic rock.  I think that we all get a lot of inspiration from places like Pinterest and Tumblr but sometimes I find it hard to transfer between the internet and my own wardrobe so I thought I would do a style post on the subject. This first look is pretty simple and could probably be made with things that you already have in your wardrobe! No plaid shorts? Tie a flannel around your waist and you are good to go. 

Pinterest Ideas 1

Cutoff jean shorts

Studded purse

Trendy Tartan Jean Shorts. Tumblr Size XS. kids 14 or 1. Red Plaid,...

How I would kill to look like this. The hair is just lush and then obviously her style is on. point. I can't wait for fall/winter fashion to get kicking down here in the south because I absolutely adore fall colors and sweaters and thigh highs and tights gah <3

Hopefully this gives you an idea of how to take an image you love from pinterest and turning it into an outfit that you can wear on the daily. In case you can't tell I am absolutely i t c h i n g for fall fashion to swing back around. I spend hours browsing the fall lines as they drop at Urban, Missguided, Motel, H&M, etc. Maroon is going to make a huge appearance in my wardrobe this fall now that I can wear it without it being associated to the college in my old town.

In other news I have some amazing street style blog ideas in the works right now so hopefully I will be able to get that up and running in the near future. It has been a trip getting used to juggling my classes, studying, photography, and keeping up with my blog so bear with me for a while as I get settled in but I am doing my best I swear :)

Style Snapshot: Dorm Room Life

Poncho- SammyDress
Leggings- Forever 21

Sometimes I wear an adorable outfit and class and homework gets in the way of capturing it during daylight hours so I snapped a few quick shots at about 1 am before crawling into bed (in the poncho whoops) to sleep before my morning class. Sadly this has been happening a lot, I wear a great outfit and don't make it out to shoot before the light is gone. So I am a bit behind on my blogging but working on it! Hopefully I can get some stuff together before next week :) Much love <3

You're a Doll, You are Flawless

I am having so much fun shooting in new locations every time I shoot at my new school. The scenery here is absolutely gorgeous- aside from the fact that it rains nearly every day it is always beautiful around here. And every part of campus seems to have something different to offer a photographers eye.

Skirt- Thrifted
Necklace- GemJunkie

This tee is one I got back in the beginning of the summer but the color just screamed fall to me so I waited until september to bust this bad boy out. Poket Roket has some of the most creative designs for pocket tees I have ever seen. I also have a tee from them with a gorgeous gold and orange leaf on it that is going to be incredible once the leaves change. Their tees are so so soft I could sleep in them forever. Also found this skirt at goodwill and the print screamed at me so I had to grab it. I think the tribal went perfectly with the elephants on the extended pocket.

Dear, You Look So Lost

Tee- Gift
Shorts- Thrifted
Thigh Highs- American Apparel
Backpack- Target

A quick outfit I threw together for one of my 8 am classes last week. I am shocked I even had the energy to put on thigh highs that early in the morning. The AA thigh highs are like sweaters for your legs so thick and long I am in l o v e. And this tee from my best friend back in Arizona is a dream. I find myself reaching for it at least once a week. whoops. 

These 8 am classes are the worst on my sleep schedule. But in other more exciting news I got a job at H&M! Hello employee discount <3 So I can guarantee some more H&M will be showing up in my wardrobe. As for right now I have a seven page paper due on monday and I haven't even chosen a topic yet so I should probably get started on that... until next time!
