What’s In My Purse?-Pumpkin Picking Edition

As you may have read in my Monday post, I went pumpkin picking with my family this past weekend. Read my FALL HAUL.

I was switching over my purse to my work bag, when I realized how much crap I actually carried with me on that day. And it sparked an idea for a what’s in my purse post.

Let’s start with the bag itself- I went with my good, old, trusty, no name brand, big, cross body, sack bag. It’s a neutral brown which goes with a lot and it fits a ton of stuff.

Now for the contents….a.k.a my whole life #BraceYourselves it’s a lot of stuff!

Tori Kelly- Style Files

Tori Kelly is one to watch. She has a voice to be reckoned with. Plays the guitar and the drums. Has a damn cool laid back style with funky twists and spins and overall gives off really good cool chill vibes. AND HER HAIR IS EPIC!

I’m going to showcase some key things I’ve noticed in her style choices.

Maybe it will help create some fun fashion inspiration for my laid back girls out there.

The sneaker trend.

Tori has this cool way of rocking a funky sneaker with a dressier outfit. Somehow it works.

Below she is pictured wearing them with a dress, a romper, shorts, and a pants outfit. And although it may be considered a slightly off kilter concept, she makes it work. I’m not much of a sneaker girl and I don’t know if I would be able to pull of this trend, but I’d definitely give it a try!

Colored shades.

Below you will see Tori rocking the same pair of green sunglasses. I am obsessed with these. They are such a funky color and reflective and just bad ass. They add a pop of color to any outfit and work really well with her big blonde curls.

Flannels.

Below you will find Tori incorporating flannels into her outfits, whether she is the rocking them around her waist to add more dimension- giving it that 90’s grunge vibe- or she’s rocking a full skirt piece, Tori makes it all work-effortlessly. Besides, you can always throw the flannel on if you are cold which would then in turn switch the outfit up a bit-giving it a cozy, cabin in the woods vibe. Where’s my crackling fireplace and my¬†glass of wine? I’m ready.¬†

The all black theme.

Tori wears a lot of black, all black outfits often including a leather jacket to be more precise. She even likes to paint her nails black as well. It gives off an edgy, rockerish vibe. And let’s be honest, you end up looking sleek as hell. What I love so¬†much about the following three all black outfits, is Tori’s choice to accent the shoe with a shiny texture and vibrant sparkly color. We see gold wedge sneakers in the first photo (WHICH I ADORE), electric¬†turquoise¬†heels in the second photo¬†and sparkly silver platform sneakers in the third photo. These accents are what makes Tori, Tori.

Thin rings on three consecutive fingers.

I see a lot of people wear simple jewelry additions like this. I adore this trend. So is there a name for these rings, and where can I get them?

The basic Tori samples.

Leather jackets aside, Tori often rotates denim pieces, plain tees, blazers, and booties.

Classing things up.

Even though often opting for a laid back, comfortable fashion style, Tori Kelly is no stranger to putting together a kick ass red carpet ready wardrobe. Below you will see how she isn’t afraid to go bold, bright, adding a little¬†sparkle and shimmer. The first look plays with color, the second is head to toe sequins and sparkle, rocking the heels too. The last photo is my favorite look. I love everything about it, the studded booties,¬†the feather dress, the leather jacket – which makes for a really interesting but beautiful texture contrast. And these pieces are all slightly different shades of gray/black as well, which compliment nicely.

All of these key ideas give Tori¬†her own style. And it looks comfortable too. I’m all about that life. Because sometimes I can’t fashion, I’m too tired and now that summer is here, I have no patience. But it’s fun to explore the idea that laid back basic pieces can be made into fashion forward looks and still remain chill and comfy. Tori Kelly is quite the talent. So I leave you with these killer performances as you start to gain some outfit inspiration from her stellar self. Let me know in the comments below¬†if I missed any Tori Styles Tips!
