If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you’ve definitely seen my beloved “vegan leather” skirt before. It really is one of my favorites – a flirty and girly cut, with a little edge from the studs. I wear it all the time in the fall/winter/early spring, and while I wasn’t quite ready to pull it out for this season yet, the style challenge gurus dictated that I must. At least my accessories kept me from being too fall-ish too prematurely. I’m just not ready!
Still working on that arm party thing, but we’re getting there. I do love how colorful this outfit is, and my peep toe, high heeled loafers are one of my favorite pairs of of pseudo-professional shoes.
Hope you’re having a good Tuesday! Let me know what you think about this outfit – or anything else you’d care to discuss – in the comments. I love hearing from you!
Boho friends, I need help! Or, really, anyone who’s ever been to a music festival, particularly a country one. I’m going to Shaky Boots this weekend, a big country festival near Atlanta, and I literally have NO idea what to wear.
I’ve been to a billion country concerts, so I know what to wear to those. But this is all day, and it’s going to be super hot. Plus, I feel like a festival brings in another element of style expectations. I want to look cute, but I’m also supposed to be casual and young, wild, and free, right?
Since I’m not really any of those things, I’m at a bit of a loss. Here are a couple of outfits I wore recently that while not exactly right, might be on the right track. Maybe.
In this first one, I like two things: shorts and the scarf headband. Probably not these shorts or this scarf, but the concept works.
In this one, I’m in love with the skirt. It’s got a tribal flavor which seems appropriate for a festival, but the fit and flare still match my personality. Of course the scarf would not go with me; I’d like to not die of heat stroke.
So, what do you think? Am I headed in the right direction or way off track? What would you wear to a music festival? Let me know soon; I’ve got less than 48 hours to pack, and at this rate, I’ll probably need every single one of those. Thank you! xoxo
I wrote last week about the mixing casual with dressy trend. I’ve really been relying pretty heavily on this look, since I now work in a casual environment, but most of my clothes are business-y from working in a law school for 6 years.
For this outfit, I combined the dressier skirt (which, really, it’s not THAT dressy – it’s kinda short, leather, and studded) with conservative pumps, and an also very on-trend fancy sweatshirt (that’s the casual part, in case that needed explanation). The sweatshirt is really a sweater, but the stitching gives the look of a sweatshirt without being quite so casual.
I really liked this look. I’m slowly moving away from being so color-blocked as I have been in past years. Don’t get me wrong – as you can see, I still had pink accents in my jewelry to complement the turquoise, but I was okay with wearing one statement color and the rest neutrals. I’m still a far cry from the monochromatic, absolutely-everything-must-match days of my youth, but my tastes are becoming a bit more sedate these days. Hopefully that doesn’t really mean I’m just old.
