Block Party

Fell in love with these boots, and I'm not sure how it hit me. They had a foreign look about them. An oddly-shaped block heel, and leather tight enough to show the silhouette of your feet. Do I want this? Do I want weirdly tight, geometric block boots? I do. I couldn't explain it, but I do. Strange as they are. No clue how to style these, but love always finds a way! 

Apparently I don't own any skinny jeans (they're all boyfriend's or belles), so I had to nix that styling option. Surely these babies can't hide underneath all that fabric. So my next option was a skirt. Done.

These boots are a unique blood orange color, so I stuck with some faithful neutrals to keep things moderate. Next, I grabbed a fitted top and a cardi to go with it and this turned out better than I thought. I'm often pleased with the looks I come up with when I'm pressed for time. But then again, who likes being rushed?

If coverage and sexiness could coexist, it would be in the form of a slit maxi skirt. The alluring slit packs a statement on it's own, so the process of picking out a top has minimal effort required. Seriously, pick a simple top and it'll work perfectly! Pair it with a crop top or a half-tucked tank or tee to define the waist.

On a Tuesday

Skirt: Finders Keepers (from Boutique Dandelion), Boots: Superdry // Photos by: Dijon 

Hi, my loves! A few of you guys requested that I post some casual looks. For most people, "casual" consists of jeans and a t-shirt--you know, the basics. All I have to say is that it's possible to be casual and still be stylish! 

I started this look with my Chicago Bulls Jersey which I thrifted (yay for cheap finds!) My immediate reaction was to throw on a pair of jeans, but I'm trying to stray from the typical "casual" look. Instead, I put on this Finders Keepers skirt I got from Boutique Dandelion. What I love about this look is how a boyish jersey is balanced by a girly skirt. For those who don't know me, don't be fooled by my ombre hair and manicured nails. I'm a total tomboy on the inside. I love to mix masculine and feminine elements because I like to look girly, but cool enough to be one of the boys!

It wouldn't be right to wear sandals or flats with a jersey, but sneakers or combats definitely fit the bill. Combat boots add a rugged aspect to your look. They go well with the jersey alone while adding some edge to a feminine skirt. This is my advice on how to dress down without compromising style!

Would you rock this look? Leave a comment and let me know what you think! 

I hope everyone is having a lovely day and as always, thanks for swinging by!
