Summer Meets Fall

I love this outfit; the boho, crocheted duster screams summer and is perfectly juxtaposed by the all black that screams fall. It’s the perfect outfit for this transitory period from summer to fall fashion. It can be hard to find that balance, and I think this outfit does just that.


Vest: Brass Plum

Jeans: Paige

Shoes: Forever 21


London, Eye Love You


We have arrived! Manic has officially taken London. Day two in this beautifully windy city had Sam and I surprisingly not too jet lagged and ready to explore! We found ourselves at  The London Eye, Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and many other sights in the surrounding area. As for my outfit of the day, I thought it would be fitting to wear the current eye trend while visiting the London Eye. I found myself feeling not too cold (surprisingly!) and paired my skater skirt with a light turtleneck and incredible teddy-like coat from Topshop. The dark green added the perfect color this outfit needed. Some more Topshop oxfords, tights, and over-the-knee socks completed this look. I cannot wait to actually visit Topshop here in the UK and purchase more clothes I don’t need where the shop all began. I think we will have to put that on the agenda for tomorrow. Enough with the shopping daydreams. We think Teen Vogue UK would be all over this schoolgirl meets menswear outfit. From the pink topknot to the cutout oxfords, I couldn’t think of a better way to have dressed for my first adventure through London. There will be many more to come and many more outfits to accompany them. Stay tuned for Samantha’s post coming tomorrow! In the words of the Brits, you know she’s going to look brilliant. Check it out here!

Stay Manic,
