Hello Bloggers! Last weekend, I spent my time at my friend Cat's apartment in NYC with my other friends Julia and Lisa. We hung out on the Upper West Side and ran out to get Baked by Melissa after dinner.

Outfit Details
Camisole: Free People
Lace top: Vintage
Necklace: Free People
Shorts: Vintage
Ring: Vintage
Bracelet: Forever 21
Shoes: Nordstrom BP 

 We had an awesome time and I also got to poke around the garment district and get some new fabrics. I'm still a beginner when it comes to actually making clothes, but I really hope to continue practicing over the summer. Here's some of what I hope to make in the coming weeks! 

I also got some great street style photos while walking around midtown: 
 How cute are they??
 I chased this guy for two blocks- he was too cool not to snap a shot of!
 I love the juxtaposition of polished and relaxed!
 Matching haircuts? Love. 
 Her outfit caught my attention right away! And I love her hair. 
Immediately after I asked this girl for a picture she struck this model-esque pose and her mother quipped, "Yes, she's very, very shy."

Hope you enjoyed this week's post! Until next,

Hello! Welcome to my personal style blog, Keep Calm and Chiffon. My name is Austen and I'm relatively new to the blogging world. This will start as a summer experiment to just see what happens so things could change up every time you log on! I'll try to post once a week on Thursdays, documenting some of my favorite style moments of the summer. Here's my first post to say hello to the blogging world. 

Dress: Lush, Shoes: Sam Edelman, Bracelets: Forever 21, Necklace: Topshop
Until next time,
