The week leading up to Halloween is always a fun one – people start getting their decorations out, the pumpkin carvings start appearing in my feeds, and weekend Halloween parties pop up left and right. But for me, Halloween seemed to have lasted all month this year with my big pumpkin project, face painting at my church’s Halloween festival, and dressing up this past weekend as Wednesday Addams. I’m super excited for Halloween and even if you’re not one to dress up, maybe today’s outfit will get you in the spirit. It’s hard to be chic in orange and black, but maybe this outfit inspire some ideas. Happy Halloween everyone!
I wanted to title this post something cheesy like “Darth Helmut” (referencing Space Balls of course), but given that the world of Helmut Lang and Darth Vader don’t cross over too often, I decided not to. I recently got this Helmut Lang wrap skirt and fell in love the moment I put it on. It’s one of those skirts that you can dress up or down and way it’s draped in a way that would flatter anyone’s figure. Oh, and did I mention how comfortable and soft it is?
You know those vacation homes where all the furniture is make of wicker and the seat cushions have some sort of leaf, palm tree, or flower print? Well, that’s exactly what I thought of when I saw these cute tropical print shorts. They not only remind me of furniture print, but they also remind me of Florida – the palm trees, humid weather, and retired community where grandpas are probably wearing this exact print! I especially found these shorts intriguing with their ’70s style running shorts cut and drawstring waist. I decided to pair this outfit with my fun bright pink rainy day flats that are actually made of the same material as rain boots! I think I’m ready for my vacation now!
With Spring here, I have been taking advantage of finally not having to wear pants to work. This Free People bodycon skirt has strategic lace panels on the front, back, and side and could easily be part of a boudoir collection. Since there is a lot of detail in the skirt, I kept the rest of the outfit simple with just a regular old slub T-shirt and some basic sandals.
Ever since the “Stingray incident” from my trip to San Diego Comic Con, I’ve been having issues with my foot. And last week my doc recommended that I wear sneakers at least for 1 week to see if my foot felt better. Well, I did, but at the same time I had to make my outfit revolve around wearing sneakers. For the first few days, I wore running shoe style sneakers w/wide leg jeans, but as the week got hotter and I got tired of dressing super casual, I migrated to my Converses (yes, less support, but I swear my foot was getting better!). And as you know, I do like my dresses, so one of the challenges I faced was how to wear sneakers with dresses. Here’s what I came up with.
