When I think of summer, one item of clothing really comes to mind – sandals. Which means that that my favorite pair of boots could potentially be left in the dark for up to 4 months! But knowing me, I’ll definitely find a way to wear them. One of my favorite things to do is to pair my favorite motorcycle boots with a feminine skirt or floral dress. And although I’ve never really owned cowboy boots, I would imagine that that would be the next best thing with a dress or skirt. I’ve had these motorcycle boots for years and even though Timberland is not known for being trendy or that fashionable, these are by far my favorite pair. I’ve had them for 6 years now and they only get better with age.
With the huge surge of comic book related movies lately, it’s only fitting that stores like Forever 21 would start carrying “trendy” comic book tops. I still can’t believe that we’re at a point where women’s comic book tops are hip! This “I only date superheroes” Avengers tank caught my eye and I knew it would make an interesting pairing with a skirt and some heels. On a side note, I’ve also been loving this quilted tote from Forever 21. As some people would say, it could be a “Flannel” (fake Channel) although I honestly just bought it for the style and the fact that it conveniently fits my laptop!
It’s time for another geek chic outfit that let’s you incorporate your favorite geeky shirt into your wardrobe. The key ingredient in this outfit is wearing your geeky shirt with a simple blazer. This combination can really go with anything – skinny jeans, shorts, or maybe a simple circle skirt. I wanted to keep this look clean and simple and even work appropriate, hence a simple men’s watch and a cute owl necklace. Although I love wearing geeky shirts with a cute skirt or some knee high socks and shorts, I also believe if you’re going to try to wear geek shirts to work, it’s a good idea to have a few conservative outfits in your back pocket. Enjoy!
I am super excited about today’s outfit because of my new Star Wars shirt!! I wanted to incorporate something more geeky into today’s outfit (hey, isn’t that what this blog is all about?) and realized that geeky shirts don’t have to just go with a pair of jeans and converse shoes. A cute skirt, ankle boots, and even some modern jewelry can really pull everything together. There’s no reason that just because you’re wearing a Star Wars shirt means that everything else has to be dressed down. In geek speak, it’s all about bringing balance to the force, right?
One thing always try to take advantage of on the weekends is being able to wear shorts. Being indoors in AC all day at work or making sure you are “work appropriate” can definitely affect your outfit. That’s why I love the freedom of wearing anything on the weekend, especially something like this one shoulder Alice + Olivia blouse or a pair of short shorts. I’m also wearing one of my favorite pair of shoes – a pair of Chie Mihara heels that I actually ended up wearing on my wedding day due to some unforeseen details with heels sinking in the grass (sadly I barely wore my Jimmy Choos). Regardless, they were practically meant for that day anyways due to the subtle heart design on the front.
It was love at first sight when I saw the Marc by Marc Jacobs 2012 spring line of Finch patterned pieces. I wanted them all, but decided on the Flavin skirt that has subtle finches on the bottom. Even though this outfit is a little on the “matchy matchy” side, I love the unexpected combination of colors on the skirt and the whimsical print. Birds, pinks, and stripes – yup, that definitely means summer is here.
Ever since I saw this laser-cut scalloped top at Club Monaco, I have been on a mission to find something similar. Fast forward many weeks to a wedding in So Cal where I stopped by a small boutique called Heavenly Couture in Laguna Beach where apparently everything in the store was $15! I didn’t think twice to buy this top and am actually relieved that it isn’t silk so I won’t have yet another thing to worry about dry cleaning! I love that this tank can be worn dressed up for down and has interesting “hole punch” details throughout.
