Lace and florals are one of my favourite combinations, perfect for a casual Summer attire.Just sharing another one of these fun looks I did while I was spending time at my sister home in Atlanta. This look for me is very casual but perfect for the outdoors under a bright sunlight. The dress I’m wear is one of my favourites this Summer because its so lightweight and airy but still has a very girlie look to is. I chose to lightly layer it with a white lace top for that extra Summer touch. Since I was running around in the field, I saw it best to wear my comfy flat oxford shoes that I’ve been sporting around a lot in… it was perfect for that day and also all casual occasions. Let me know what you think of this look and tell me what you would wear for a casual Summer day outdoors.

I love living in Brooklyn, where I’m able to roam the streets of Williamsburg on the weekends with awesome friends full of laughter and carefree… The fact that my friend and I basically went restaurant hoping for around 30 mins, simply because there were so many options to decide from and we’re both oh so indecisive. During our restaurant contemplation, we stopped by the Brooklyn Flea, which was full of cool things, mostly vintage items perfect for the Brooklyn stereotype. Some cute vintage Hawaiian shirt that kind reminded me of being back in Jamaica.
Dress & Shoes- Forever 21
Overall it was a pretty great day spent in Williamsburg. It was super hot which is why this oversized A-line dress fit perfectly for the occasion, as I was able to keep very cool and comfortable. The embroidery on the dress is my favourite part about it because it gives such a Baroque feeling, contrasting against the darkness of the dress.
I kept it pretty simply, and just an awesome silver necklace made out of tiny little spoons and flat loafers from Forever 21 kept me extra comfortable since we were walking around a whole lot.

On a hot Summer day, wearing denim seems to always go unsaid. It keeps me cool and comfy, while beaming a Summer vibe. So when a good friend of mine texts me to hang out, the quickest thing I could pull together was this light denim top with the perfect pant combination.
It’s very rare I find a denim anything that I’d actually like so when I stumbled upon this loose fitting denim shirt one day while online shopping, I think I surprized myself when I placed it in the cart and went through the whole nine of purchasing it. I’m definitely happy I made that choice because this shirt definitely came in handy. The loose boxy fit gives a sense of airiness, plus it’s a light wash making it very easy to style with other pieces as well as oozing a feeling of Summer.
I paired it with my black and white plaid trousers that I’ve previously style a few times here on the blog but, this time around I styled it was the “pop piece” in this look to compliment the simplicity of the top and of course, I took my new Dr Martens heeled boot out for a spin for the first time since receiving them. I have to say it’s a pretty comfortable boot, the total opposite of what I expected it to be. These boots are really great for summer being part sandal, part boot… and it s sort of bondage quality gives it such a nice edge. To finish of the look, I chose to accesorize with a slightly statement necklace and one of my favourite pair of sunnies for the Summer. Cheers to a wonderful start to the week.

Cold enough to wear a jacket but warm enough to take the shorts for a ride. Spring break spent staycationing in Brooklyn and getting some much needed me time. I loved that it was such a sunny day but with cool windy breeze, which made it a perfect time to style these shorts that I’ve been wanting to wear for awhile now.
I paired the shorts with my gun mental sweater that I picked up while thrifting one day at Beacon’s Closet, I love the metallic quality of it so much plus it very breathable which makes it easy to where during the warmer weathers but with a much different styling. Since this look was more of casual attire for me I just threw on my biker jacket with a nylon trench for extra layer and also because I was 100% sure it would rain….which it didnt.

So I’m not sure whats it with me, but I’ve been particularly obsessed with this bright royal/cobalt blue and green combination. Something about two primary colours could seem a little odd and use to throw me off sometimes but clearly not anymore. It’s finally getting warm enough here in New York so I can start to wear more of my skirts and dresses again very soon.
For this look, I took a little throwback grunge element from one of my past looks…which is this beautiful olive green sweater that I ripped up quite a bit. Underneath, I thought it would be nice to layer with a complimentary flannel skirt with my favourite biker jacket. I kept it pretty simple with the make-up, I’m been going a lot more clean around the eyes instead of my usual dark cat eye, mainly because I kind of like an almost all natural look. Let me know what you think of this post, I can’t wait to start posting more often again and thanks a lot of visiting!

Things have been so hectic for me, juggling about a thousand projects all at once, making it quite difficult to manage my time better with blogging. I’ve missed it so much and finally decided to drop everything and post this look I wore a few weeks back, just before I was heading out to have lunch in the city.
Chunky, cozy sweaters have always been a strong go-to for me mainly because I get to be warm and comfortable yet I’m able to dress the look up or down if I choose to. Here I’m wearing this tan shade sweater that I possible stole from my sister because I knew she was never going to wear it, and I paired it with my plaid trousers for a touch of print that wasn’t screaming “look at me” but, was more of a nice compliment to the neutral of the sweater. I had to wear a huge coat over this entire look but for the purpose of showing the look I opted to leave the coat behind and show the styling with my favourite biker jacket.
I’ll definitely be back to blogging more regularly very soon! thanks so much for being patient with me and I read all your lovely comments <3 have an awesome week.

Sharing one of my more casual daytime looks. There are times when I prefer to just throw on a baggy trouser and a comfy sweater with chunky boots to get on with my day, this post pretty much explains it all.
I was heading out to have brunch one weekend and because of how tired I was from working late night in the studio I just decided to wear a outfit that was comfortable and casual while still being a bit “fashionable”. I really can’t wait for it to get warmer here in NY because all I really want to do is pile on thousands of layers and stay indoors which is possibly why my posts haven’t really been too consistent.
Anywhos, remember you can keep up with me on my instagram page @marfarlane. I post real time daily outfits, some of my design work and pretty little things during my adventures around the city.

I have some serious layering going on in this post and I’m totally loving it.
Blue Biker Jacket- Similar
Oversized Faux leather Vest- H&M
Yes, The Style Alien has officially moved to a new hosting site and I couldn’t be happier. I delayed posting looks for awhile so that I could get everything perfected and to my liking so I’m exciting to share with you on the new layout of the site!
Aside from that, things have been really hectic between working on independent collections and getting ready to head back to school however, posting on here might be the only thing keeping me really sane sometimes. For this post, I decided to share this look I wore around a week ago right before I went to lunch in Williamsburg with a friend.
It was super cold obviously, so in typical Martina fashion…I decided to pile on a bunch of thick layers to help in keeping me warm in this dreadful weather. I wore a cute long black sweater that have this lace detail attached to it which is pretty cool, then I layered with my royal blue biker jacket as a pop colour against the black with another layer of my oversized faux leather vest.
Let me know what you think of my new layout!
