Little by little, piece by piece, I am adding quality into my wardrobe. Sure, I'd like for everything I own to be designer, but your girl isn't there just yet. I'm not huge on accessories (maybe you could tell from past posts?) but I will happily dabble in a hat if I can find one that fits my peanut head. Not kidding. Although I'm so into my Selena Quintanilla meets train conductor cap, this hat takes the top spot right now. For what seems like forever now, I've been lusting over a Janessa Leoné hat and when I saw a promo for 30%, I immediately placed my order. Janessa Leoné hats are all handmade and I can literally feel the quality on my head. Is that even possible? Yes. I already know I want another one (or two...control yourself, Noella) for the summer! So here is Aya, the perfect wide brim hat with a luxe silk band that gives me some Jimi Hendrix vibes as soon as I have it on. I'm into it.

Alex Turner once sang in lust of a girl in a cheetah print coat named Arabella. I mean my name kinda rhymes, right? Granted, this is definitely leopard print and I only ever dream of Turner dedicating a song to me, but this coat gives me major "I'm with the band" kind of vibes. Just the kind of style I'm into! So, here's this look, an ode to my inner rockstar and/or pop star. Because at one point, I wanted to be that too...

The formula to my go-to look has stayed the same for quite some time now. A band tee, my tried and true leather jacket, and round frames that make every outfit a little bit rock'n'roll. This time wearing it, I decided NOT to go for my usual black skinnies but a cool pair of trousers to give it some interest. This is by far my favorite t-shirt in my closet that I got when I bought my tickets for the "Not in This Lifetime" Tour. Yes, I am actually a Guns'n'Roses fan, so I wear the shirt proudly. It's a piece that I'm constantly wearing and will be until it falls apart because it's 1. oversized and insanely comfortable  2. an awesome conversation starter between you and a fellow fan! 

How do you style your favorite band tee?
