Zachary's Birthday

My struggle was a little real...
...but I made it!

The clan eating Thai...let's play the "Where's Audrey" game
For those of you who have read my previous posts, you probably know about my best friend Zachary. I've known him since 6th grade, and he's honestly more like a brother than a friend. He's an amazingly talented fashion designer (recently won Project Runway: Threads and you should definitely check out his fall collection which I modeled in) and an incredibly intelligent individual and I'm so lucky to call him my best friend. It was his birthday a couple of weekends ago and I spent the day with him, taking pictures and eating Thai food and working on blogs and contemplating life and such. I feel like I end up talking about Zachary in pretty much every single post since he does take a lot of the pictures for my blog and has a very strong presence in my fashion life but I just wanted to give a little bit of Zachary love in honor of his 16th birthday. :)

Anyways, in this look the main piece for me was this gorgeous Zara scarf. I bought this on boxing day and I have barely been able to take it off since. I'm usually into layering my necklaces (which I couldn't quite part with as you can see), but as it gets a little chillier I find that scarves are much more practical while still being incredibly chic. This blanket scarf is not only the largest and coziest item of clothing I've ever owned, but the thickness adds some amazing dimension and texture to any outfit, and the simple black and white check print is minimal enough that it doesn't overpower anything else in the outfit. I could probably even get away with wearing this scarf with a print...

  5. I am absolutely in love with that scarf! Dainty necklaces are also a favorite of mine :) Girl, you really know how to strut as I love the pictures of you walking across the street, and I applaud you for doing a split. Bravo, bravo. If I were still my ballet years that would have been a possibility, but now I'm as stiff as a stick-haha! Your friend Zachary sounds like such an amazing, accomplished person, and he sure knows how to take some great pictures :)

  6. Congrats to your friend for winning Project runway, that's really cool!

    That outfit is so nice, has anyone ever said you look a tad like Ariana Grande?

    Meme xx (Hope to see you around and about my blog <3)

  7. Great outfit! The scarf really stands out. Looks lovely on you! I'm totally into scarfs at the moment, also because they help me overcome the London weather. haha

    Thank you for your comment btw, really meant a lot to me. :) I'm glad you like posts. Sometimes I feel like not many bother to read haha.
    I had a look at your photos modelling your friend's collection. You remind me a little of model Leah Weller. :) x

  8. Thanks so much! And no problem. I've read your blog for such a long time and never commented, so I figured it was the least I could do. And I have to admit I just had to google Leah Weller, but that's a huge compliment thank you so much!

  9. Thanks Emily! Yeah the Dogeared necklace was a Christmas gift from two years ago and I was so psyched when I got it! They're super nice necklaces...I might have to splurge and get myself another one :) You danced? I'm actually super into ballet that's so awesome!

  10. I was really into ballet for a good five to six years, and then I moved, so the commute to my dance teacher was too far every week :( My mom keeps telling me that my posture used to be so great and now she wishes I kept on doing ballet-haha You really have the perfect figure for ballet!

  11. I love everything about this outfit, Audrey- the scarf, coat, sunglasses, booties.. I love it all!!! Hope Zachary had a wonderful birthday!

  12. That sucks that you stopped, but it's so awesome to find other ballet dancer bloggers! I just followed you on my ballet Insta...yay compartmentalizing my life!

  13. And I dance like 6 days a week and somehow still have terrible posture lol ;D

  14. Very chic and comfy-looking outfit! Kind of want Zachary to be my friend now after reading all the praise about him :) Sounds like you guys had a lovely day.

  15. Thanks so much! Yeah...I talk him up just a little bit :) What else are friends for?

  16. You are easily one of the most fashionable people I know, Audrey :) Literally gush about your outfits all the time but hey, it's the truth. have me missing winter wear.
    So much love for Zachary's photography and designs too, here's a very belated birthday wish! x
