Gold Details and Oversized Cardigans

BY TARA BURKE

I love mixing fancy clothing pieces with really casual ones and that is exactly what I did with this outfit. Cailin and I were in the city to go to Christmas Eve service at Hillsong NYC and to hit up the markets for some last minute shopping. A casual look and sneaks are a great way to stay comfortable when you’re walking all over the city. I knew I was going to wear my Vans because they are super comfortable, so I planned the rest of my outfit around that.

Bomber jackets are just the best for an effortlessly cool look. I got this flower embroidered one from Target and what makes it even better is that it’s sweater material! It is literally the comfiest thing and is so soft.

9b48b31d22f9480467153dba765f311a: I started customizing Vans in high school! One night, I was grounded for staying out past my curfew and was stuck in my room with nothing to do. I saw a pair of old white Vans sneakers on the floor next to me and decided to doodle on them. After a few hours of doodling and designing, the sneakers were no longer white, but were pieces of art! From then on, I continued to customize sneakers. What started out as a hobby customizing sneakers for my friends and family grew into my very own business!
