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!
When it comes to fashion, there are definitely certain colors that I gravitate to over and over again (black and pink immediately come to mind). One color I typically hate wearing though is navy. It’s just so boring and plain and I hate how it feels like it’s draining my energy throughout the day. Surprisingly, I was instantly drawn to this dress on the rack. I think it’s the print- it breaks up the dark color and adds a little interest to the dress. When I received this navy and white striped blazer, I had to pair it with this printed dress. I love the pattern play and the stripes and print add enough interest to make even the dullest color fun to wear.
Shoulder details are so big right now. Everywhere I look, there is an off the shoulder dress or a top with cutout shoulders. Everything looks so cute but since the pieces are pretty trendy, it can be hard for me to spend a lot on them. Who knows if I’ll even like that off the shoulder dress in a few months? I love inexpensive fashion companies for this very reason. It’s easy to test out a trend to see how much I’ll wear it before really investing in it. I recently picked out an inexpensive off the shoulder top and cold shoulder dress to test the waters of the shoulder details trend.
Gingham print just screams spring and summer to me. Just looking at it makes me think of picnics and sunshine and I can’t think of a better fabric to wear when the weather starts to warm up. I haven’t owned any gingham in a while so I was super excited when I got the chance to try this gingham top from SheIn. It has a really fun shape and the black and white print is so charming, I can already tell I’m going to be wearing this all the time.
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!
Happy (almost) Halloween! I picked up a few mini pumpkins to use as a centerpiece and I couldn’t resist wearing an outfit that matched them, and throwing on one of my orange lipsticks. Last week I talked about my love of prints and this week I have a really fun one for you. From far away, this just looks like a dress with a nice autumn-colored fabric. The oranges, greens, and yellows are the perfect match for fall foliage. But upon closer inspection, you’ll see that this dress is actually covered with tiny Kremlins!
