Photos by Brittany of Work It Berk


Last week we were reunited with fellow Berkeley alum (and street style/foodie blogger) Brittany.  We snapped these photos in Clarion alley...which if you have never been, we recommend. The alley is full of murals on either side (we were unfortunately limited to one side of the alley for lighting reasons). On  rare occasions you can see an amateur rap music video shot there.

Tassels

On Mal: H&M Wide-Cut Top Sweatshirt (they aren't kidding with the 'wide-cut', this is an xs), Tobi Back to the Twenties Dress, DIY distressed Denim (original jeans from GAP), Forever 21 Metallic Pointed Loafers, Pour la Victoire Bag

Photos by Rene

When I was meeting up with Rene, I warned him I might look a little weird.
"I am wearing a giant sweatshirt, over a dress."
"okay.."
"...with pants."
"Are you trying to wear every single item of clothing?"

When he actually saw me he said that it actually didn't look as weird as he thought it would, because the sweatshirt and the tassels look like one piece (which is what I was going for. I knotted the straps to make the dress shorter).  

I had originally wanted to wear the dress as a dress (no pants) peeking out from under a sweater, but decided the proportions of an oversize sweater and knotted pieces of string looked off. And also I get cold.

Shopping Guide: Sneakers


Mal: I am going to Japan with my family on a trip in April (the first time for a lot of us!).  Since we will be doing a lot of walking, my sisters and I have been on the hunt for some cute and comfy sneakers. Trolling Asos came up with a ton of viable options...although I am still considering customizing some Nike iDs.

[basic]



On Mal: Zara Leather Jacket (similar), H&M Striped tee and sneakers (old), J. Crew Lookout Skinnies, Pour la Victoire Crossbody

Rene snapped these for me after work, so this outfit is a pretty good representation of my everyday.  My office is very casual, which is great because jeans are my go-to.  Flats and sneakers are also essential, as I usually BART home after work and commuting in heels is no fun.  

Some days I do wish I had a more formal office, as I think workwear can be fun...but then I imagine a life where I have to go to the dry cleaner all the time.

Adidas



On Mallory: Adidas 'Originals' Sweatshirt tee (bought at the outlet for $10!), c/o Missguided Freja Croc Jacket (now on sale!), c/o Articles of Society Charcoal Motto Jeans, Zara Basic pointed flats, Pour La Victoire Crossbody


Rene and I snapped these photos outside of Berkeley Bowl West, which happened to be closed for President's Day.  It seems that we were not the only ones who didn't get the memo...as we were shooting (for about 15 minutes), we saw 51 cars attempt to park.
