Skull print fashion seems to be everywhere these days. Alexander McQueen’s popular skull print scarves, skull prints in “couture” clothing, and even in some of the jewelry from Disney Couture. When did skull jewelry, skull accessories, and even skull prints go from being seen as “goth” or “rebellious” to just plain trendy? I’ve enjoyed skull print stuff for a long time now and it’s good and bad that there are so many options these days. 5 years ago, I would have never found a feminine skull print dress like this one from Royal Bones, but on the downside, it’s getting to be just as common as any other print. I guess the hard part is weeding out the trendy items from the quality items. My tip for that is to definitely go with the more unique pieces since they are more likely to be timeless!
On summer days when I don’t want to think too hard about what to wear or just need to “throw something on”, this is when the maxi dress totally comes in handy. Paired with a belt, sweater, and your favorite sandals, the maxi dress covers all my favorite “Cs” – comfortable, casual, and chic. This one by RVCA not only has all of those elements, but the light pink color is great for spring/summer. And the tribal print is subtle enough that you could dress this up or just wear it to the beach!
Dressing for spring time means lots of floral print. I don’t know about you, but after a while, florals can get pretty boring and all start to look the same. This is why it’s always good to mix things up and try pairing it with something different. For example, I have always liked the idea of making floral look a little more edgy – feminine edgy as you might call it. Here are a couple of tips on how to make your floral more edgy:
The weather has been very fickle in the Bay Area these days with it being sort of hot, but still windy and cold, which makes for much indecisiveness when it comes to choosing an outfit. Layers is one solution, but for today’s post, I decided to mix it up by wearing my winter boots with my summery floral dress. This high low dress is conveniently short enough in the front to just barely cover my over the knee boots and pairing it with a light jacket will help keep you balanced when the temperature changes. On top of that, I’m also wearing my winged key Harry Potter necklace that I picked up from the Whimsical Alley, which in my opinion goes perfectly with floral print. I got to check out their booth at Wondercon and can’t wait to visit the store next time I’m in the LA area! It’s a must see store for any Harry Potter fan!
It was love at first sight when I saw this skirt. Something about the old style comics with their red, yellows, blacks, and bright blues seems to never go out of style. The iconic blue eyes of the blonde haired woman who always seemed to be in a tragic state is such a familiar piece of art, which I believe is based off of Roy Lichtenstein’s art (can anyone confirm?) Regardless, I love that this skirt brings so much life and “pop” into an outfit and it’s definitely a must have for any of you comic-loving ladies out there!
I swear I’m not trying to look like a wannabe undercover agent in today’s outfit, but sometimes I just feel like wearing all black and calling it a day. I decided to fight the urge to wear all black though and threw in my skinny camo pants to mix it up. And since one might not think of camo jeans as the most professional thing for the work place, adding a blazer and some booties adds a nice balance to the outfit.
As Rob Lowe on Parks and Rec might say, “I am… literally.. ‘itching’ to get out of my winter sweaters.” I decided to take advantage of the good weather we’ve been having and finally bring out my sandals! Feeling like I was about to take a trip to the Hamptons or something, I decided to wear my striped maxi skirt with a preppy denim linen shirt. I have especially been loving this shirt for lots of layering and love that it’s so light and goes with everything. Here’s to great spring weather this weekend! Happy Friday!
