I love fun prints, especially brighter-colored prints for summer. I really like the way prints can take a simple piece and make it much more interesting and dynamic. This palm print wrap skirt is the perfect example. A wrap skirt is a classic, timeless shape but the midi length and palm frond print makes this one perfect for strolling around on summer evenings. I love the longer length and the print is so fun- it makes me wish I was on an island somewhere, walking along the beach!
There are certain details I always like for my holiday looks. I like lots of sparkle (obviously) and a bright lip is always fun for going out. I love lace and I really like it paired with leather to toughen it up a bit. Layers are super important for me because I’m always cold and a great pair of boots or booties can instantly make a holiday outfit look finished. This holiday outfit is one of my favorites because it combines all of those details into one look without being too overdone.
I love when spring rolls around and I can ditch the tights I’ve been wearing all winter! I love warm weather (good for me since I live in Phoenix) and I spend all winter counting down the days until I can wear a skirt with bare legs. Luckily, it gets warm pretty quick here so I don’t have to suffer for too long. I recently picked out a couple of new spring skirts from Dresslink and I was so happy when they arrived and I was able to wear them with bare legs immediately! I’m not quite ready for mini skirts yet (those seem like more of a summer thing) so I went with two midi skirts in different materials: a white tulle skirt and a red scuba skirt.
I like a little predictability with my fashion brands. There’s nothing worse than finding a new favorite brand because you love their entire collection only to have the next one be a complete bust. Or finding the best basics only to have a brand stop making them. I like being able to count on finding certain items whenever I want them. One of my favorite releases that happens every year is J. Crew’s neon sweaters. They always have an entire collection of bright knits and I’m always drawn to the neon pink sweaters and cardigans. Luckily they’re in slightly different hues than the year before so I have an excuse to buy more!
You know how there are some clothing pieces you love so much you buy them in every color you can get your hands on? That’s how I am with this baroque print tunic I got from SheIn. It’s actually a dress but on me it’s borderline between a super mini dress and a long tunic. The jacquard fabric isn’t the best quality and the dress is unlined but the fun print and fit-and-flare shape makes it the perfect throw-on-and-go dress. There are so many versions of this dress with different prints out there and at around $20 or so, the price can’t be beat! I already have a couple of different versions of this and I’m trying to decide which print to buy next!
Black is a staple in my wardrobe, which becomes super obvious as soon as the weather gets cooler. I think it’s really easy to throw things together if most of my clothes are in various shades of black and gray, then I can wear them all together or add a pop of color with a bright sweater or shoes. It makes getting dressed really easy in the morning. I also happen to really love all black outfits, they somehow look way cooler than if I were to wear the same pieces in different colors. I think the key is to have a lot of basic pieces that have some kind of interesting detail to keep them from being too boring.
