60s vibes

My recent posts have been so focused on the 70s, that I decided to take it back a decade. Another one of my favorite decades is the 60s. I love the colors, prints, and silhouettes of the 60s and you see that in this post.

Creating the Look:
This look started with the pants. I love the bold print of the pants and wanted to pair them with a top that was just as bold. Nothing screams bold like a vibrant orange sweater. I also chose this sweater because I love combing orange and blue. It's inevitable that complementary colors pair well...so it's not just something they tell us in art class. To continue the blue, geometric shapes I chose detailed heels that emulated the shapes in the pants. I completed the look with simple studs and a nude lip.

bye bye spring

It's officially summer in two days and I'm sad about it. Spring is my favorite season and I hate when it leaves. I feel like it's the perfect season for fashion. Warm enough to not wear tights with skirts and cool enough to layer...and obviously I love layering.

Creating the Look:
This look started with the floral pants. Every time I wear these pants, I want to pair it with light, springy colors. Nothing is more "springy" than soft pink which is why I wore this chiffon pink top. I also chose this top because of the chiffon fabric. It always gives a look a soft feel. I added the white vest because the white against the soft pink made the pink pop. To continue the spring colors, I wore a peach purse. I completed the look with neutral, studded heels.

denim + floral

No matter the dress, a denim jacket can bring life to an outfit. I especially love combining it with summer dresses.

Creating the Look:
This look simply started with the floral dress. This dress is very cute on it's own but I wanted to add to the look. When searching through my closet for the perfect layer, I immediately grabbed my denim jacket. I love pairing neon yellow with blue. The color combination always creates a fresh look. I wanted to dress the look down so I wore eyelet oxfords. I also chose these oxfords because the eyelet detail screams spring time and the white keeps the fresh color palette going. To continue with that color palette, I wore a khaki purse. I added some corkiness with bumble bee earrings. I completed the look with aviators and pink lips which made the pink in the dress pop.

classic safari


I love to mix classic items that represent various decades. For this look, I mixed two of my favorite decades 50s and 70s.

Creating the Look:
This look started with the 50s style, pink skirt. Usually I wear this skirt with black and white, but this time I wanted something different. Also, I always pair the skirt with a tee, so I wanted to change that up too. Since my obsession with the 70s continues, I wanted a top that represented 70s trends. I didn't have that top so I made one out of a jacket. That idea definitely reminded me of the 70s because safari jackets as shirts were very popular during that time. To take the top to an even higher 70s level, I belted it.  I wanted to keep the look light so I wore white pumps. When I think safari, I think traveler so I added a vintage overnight bag as my purse. To go with that vintage feel, I tied a vintage scarf to the bag. I completed the look with cat eye shades and gold studs.

white

There's something about an all white outfit that just makes you feel so classic. Although is seems easy to put on all white, there's some technique that's required to have a great look.

Creating the Look:
This look started with the white dress. Because the dress covered most of my body, it inevitably was the focal point. Therefore, anything I added to the look had to support the dress and keep it as the focal point. That's how I decided to wear white heels. Although all details were to support the dress, I still wanted them to stand out, which is why I chose strappy heels. I didn't want to continue the white with my purse but I still wanted a neutral. I chose a snakeskin clutch because it was a light neutral and it add print to the look. I completed the look with adding details to the dress. The first detail was the belt. Instead of a typical bow a did a more eye-catching tie. Last, I add my skin as a detail by unbuttoning some bottom buttons to make a split. Using my skin tone helped break up the all white.
