Hello! I feel like I've been throwing a lot of dresses at you lately so today I'm getting back to my 'Queen of Skirts' roots by wearing this oldie but goodie skirt via Romwe. I can never get over this print! It's cool and funky and yet ultra feminine.
I received this ModCloth shirt (Cafe au Soleil Sleeveless Top in Telephones) a few weeks back and while I love it, I can't truly rave about it. I really adore ModCloth's namesake house brand and find their dresses and skirts to be 100% quality. Their shirts? Well, they're fun but VERY thin fabric wise. I'm terrified this won't make it past a few washes, but we shall see. Other than that, the fit is fine (XS for measure).
You know I had to mix prints! I just can't help myself with these things! If you were to look at this Romwe skirt closely you would see it actually has navy blue in the sunglass lenses instead of black but it's so dark it looks (and photographs) as black. So by using the
blue blackish in the skirt and the red background to match the (actual) black and red in the top, it makes this mixing of prints look put together and not sloppy. Finding a central theme or color is key to mixing prints! To see a more streamlined non-mixed prints styling of this outfit, click HERE.
To keep the theme of the outfit central I chose my classic Nine West Flax Pumps in red and my black BCBG Max Azria bag (via Marshalls). To have some extra fun I added my Ruby the Booby brooch from Erstwilder-- one of my all-time favorite brooches! It adds further whimsey but still colors inside the lines with this outfit as it's blue and blue is a main color on the skirt.
I hope everyone has a lovely day!
