Hello and a happy 2015 to all of you so far!
This is my first post of 2015 that i've done, and it feels so good to post again after a hiatus from my blog. And it's even better when it's an outfit post.
2014 for me was a year of transitioning and a lot of rough changes, but so far 2015 seems to be holding up, although it's too early to tell. I'm sure many of my regular readers remember the collaboration/contest I held with Firmoo awhile back, and I'm proud to start off the beginning of the year with yet another collab with them! They were so kind to contact me again and gave me yet another option of picking a pair of frames to wear. I ended up with their unisex acetate glasses, a retro styled round frame with wire metal temples. It was pretty unique and nifty in my opinion. What I like most about the frame is the sharp contrast between the metal and the plastic, and the quirkiness of the glasses itself gives it a true vintage feel.
Even though I already have a pair of Firmoo frames that I'm currently wearing (and loving), it's always nice to have a spare on hand in case things get a little crazy. Firmoo is also awesome in the fact that they have an ongoing promotion in which you can get your first pair of glasses for free! So if you're looking for a pair of frames or just want a cute spare to hold on to, Firmoo is the way to go.
As far as the rest of my outfit goes, it was pretty chilly when I was taking these pictures. I've always wanted a pair of chelsea boots, so I picked up a cute pair from ASOS, along with the fedora hat that I've been searching for for the longest time.
The Matt & Nat backpack is honestly one of my favorite backpacks aside from my Kanken, and it's been SO useful for school. It has a nifty computer compartment inside, comfortable enough to hold a 13 inch laptop, and for all the leather conscious people out there- M&N produces all of their products out of vegan leather. They also pride themselves in being a sustainable company (a big + in my book) in the fact that they produce their bag lining out of 100% recycled plastic bottles and source products such as cork and rubber for their design process. Pretty nifty.
Have a great week!!
