Scarfin It

It is absolutely unheard of to rock a scarf in its natural form during the sizzling hot summer days in the south. Over the years we have had to get creative with the way we style our scarves so that we don’t have to pack them away, never to be seen again until the winter season. I enjoy the way a scarf can add a pop of depth, color or pattern to any look. So while the earth spends the summer time keeping us in a heat choke hold, I will use my scarves in the next best possible way, on my head!

Scarves Dot Net laced me with this super chic scarf that I used as a pop of color and hint of extra pattern for this cool summer look. Um, and can I just say that the selection on Scarves Dot Net is simply amazing. There is a scarf for almost every style personality you can dream of and the price points are, to say the least, on point as well.

I mixed my scarf with this great tribal print top, destroyed jean shorts and my favorite pair of gladiator sandals. To take the look one step further I finished it with subtle printed bag. I managed to mix a total of three different prints flawlessly by keeping them simple and pulling them together with complimenting neutral accents.

What I am Wearing:

Scarf: Scarves Dot Net

Top: Thrifted

Shorts: Abercrombie and Fitch

Shoes: Charles by Charles David

Bag: Vintage

Thanks for stopping by lovers and when you get a chance go over to Scarves Dot Net and browse the variety of chic scarves! I’ll be scarfin it this summer, will you?

Peace Love Style,

“How’d you put that together”: Taliah

Yes, this woman is FLY and when I say that I say it with confidence. I make it a point to visit as many other blogs as I can everyday. There are a few that no matter what time a day it is, if I get a new post email I just have to check it.  Fashion Was Here is certainly one of those blogs. Taliahs dope style is always on point. Whether she  is wearing a plain white top or a pretty printed bottom, I am always excited to see what’s new on her blog because there is always an unexpected twist, yes ma’am! Not to mention she is currently in the running for ‘Best personal style blog’ for the upcoming Style Bloggers of Color awards coming up in June! I totally agree with this nomination, so if you love her style as much as I do make sure to vote for her here.

Get into how she put this fab look together:
1. How did you put your look together?

I focused my look around my skirt because it is the most striking piece. The print of the skirt is very bold and I love the African-inspired flair it gives. I wanted to tone it down with solid colors for a classier vibe, especially since the skirt is short. I felt like the jacket was a perfect addition to the skirt due to its safari like style. The silk, pleated blouse was a good contrast to the rougher textures. My black pumps also had like a satin feel so I loved how they pulled the whole look together. To top it all off, my maroon wide brim hat made the outfit a bit more dramatic but also brought your eyes back to my skirt.

2. How would you describe your personal style?

Modern meets vintage. I am all about balance when it comes to my style but it also depends on my mood. I love to celebrate femininity in my wardrobe choices with a bit of edge.

3. What advice would you give someone who would like to achieve this look?

Make sure you have balance in an ensemble like this. Try to find a bottom that has interesting or bold colors and highlight at least 2 colors with your other pieces. Playing with different fabrics is a great way to show versatility and add depth to an outfit.

4. Where did you purchase the items you are wearing?

My hat: Good Will, top: Loehmanns, skirt: H&M, jacket: Filene’s Basement, shoes: BCBG store, clutch: Louis Vuitton store.

My Style Tips: Birthday Fun

Everyday is some ones birthday, however next month actually happens to be the birthday of a friend of mine. Your birthday is one of the days you are supposed to feel extra special and extra beautiful, so my early birthday gift to my friend is this to help her look her absolute best on her day!

I am a huge fan of what I like to call, the reversible mullet effect. Which is basically work at the top party on the bottom or visa versa. I want my girl to look super hot without being overly sexy, so below are a few birthday looks I know will look HOTT on her:

Birthday fun

Look #1:

With this look I wanted to have the party at the top with a sexy plunge neck and tone it down a bit with a fit and flair skirt. Above is a dress, but this look can be achieved with a plunge neck blouse and a fit and flair skirt. To add more fun to the look pair with a sexy pair of strappy sandals.

Look #2:

So, here you have the party on the bottom with a form-fitting bodycon midi skirt. It will show off all of your curves flawlessly. To tone down the sexy bottom pair with a peplum top to bring a sophisticated touch to the look. Again pair with a fun strappy sandal.

The theme of these birthday looks are to be sexy and fun without looking like you are trying to hard. Play around with different prints and colors to compliment your personality and of course make sure that your hair to laid and face beat! I hope this helps!:)

Peace Love Style,

“How’d you put that together”: Hilary

I ran into a picture of Hilary featured on Rocquelle’s weekly,Your Body is Fabulous series and easily fell in love with her style. Without even getting the chance to browse her blog to learn more about her, I could immediately tell that she had a fondness for art and design (of course I was totally right! 🙂 ). As I browsed through her personal style and interior design based blog, my brain went into inspiration overload! I simply adore her very clean-cut and whimsical style. She does wonders with cool prints, fun accessories and bright colors. Not to mention I’ve become completely obsessed with her color study posts, where she displays color inspirations from her various outings. Whenever I visit her blog I find myself blurting, “Pretty!”, to all that Hilary Inspired has to offer.

Get into how she put together this pretty spring time ensemble.

1. How did you put your look together?

To be honest, it happened pretty organically. I knew I wanted to play with high and low textures so, as I stood in front of my closet clothing rack, I knew the denim shirt and silk skirt were easy choices. From there, I honed in on the bright blue belt to accentuate the waist. The jewelry was meant to be simple and out of the way. Finally, the nude shoes were a must! I wanted something that would elongate the leg since the silk skirt was at a slightly longer length.

2. How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style is greatly influenced by vintage cuts and patterns. I love color and am most interested in eclectic styling. Classic shapes with some unexpected twist are my thing.

3. What advice would you give someone who would like to achieve this look?

Find yourself an awesome denim or chambray shirt. It doesn’t have to be expensive but it does need to feel good. I like mine to fit a little looser… it gives the ensemble that casual, “boyfriend”-borrowed look. Mine was a thrifted piece and I wear it all the time!! Other than that, have fun with a dressier skirt. The mix and match is what makes this look so much fun!

4. Where did you purchase the items you are wearing?

Let me think…. okay, here’s the run down. Earrings, Nordstrom Rack // Denim Shirt, Thrifted // Bright Blue Belt, Vintage // Green Silk Floral Skirt, Thrifted // Beaded Purse, gift from mom 🙂 // Silver Bangle, Vintage // Nude Pumps, ShoeMint (Dominique, you’ll notice I’ve attached links to similar items for your readers as well).

Wrinkled Neon

Yes, I am neon addicted! I particularly like to mix it with a look that is laid back and casual because it easily makes a thrown together outfit look totally chic. Although these shorts are attracted to wrinkles no matter how many times they are ironed [ insert side eye here], I am obsessed with them. They are comfy, versatile and pair well with the lightweight tunic, perfect for a girl on the go like me. I’m running around crazy this week so I don’t have much time to chat. Enjoy the rather casual, lazy look and I’ll talk to you guys soon! 🙂

What I am Wearing:

Top: Thrifted

Shorts: J.Crew

Pumps: Lulu’s (I think they are sold out :/ )

Sunnies: Asos

Necklace: Forever21

Thanks for stopping by!

My Style Tips: Clearly Needed

If I ever had to pressure anyone into a particular trend, it would hands down be a super funky clear heel. They will add a cute twist to your perfectly styled looks in a heart beat. I’d recommend rocking them with a simple pair of jeans and white t-shirt and you are sure to be ahead of the style curve. Here are a few of my favorites on the market now.

Clearly needed

Are you a clear heel girl? Let me know and have a great weekend loves!

“How’d you put that together?”: Natasha

When I first started blogging and went on a rampant hunt for inspiration, Natasha’s style blog, Girl in the Lens was one of the first ones I saw and immediately loved! I love how she makes effortless style look, well, effortless. She is exceptional when it comes to dressing down dressy pieces and dressing up casual looks.  Every time I visit her blog I am expecting something fun and totally cute. Natasha also showcases great inspirational content from editorial pictures to her I Want it Wednesday posts.

Check out how she dressed down a super sexy bodycon dress and how she put the look together.

1. How did you put your look together?

I fell in love with this dress the instant I saw it; the cool print and vivid colours give it something more than just your usual going out dress. I teamed it with pastel denim heels to keep the focus on the dress and gothic jewellery and a quirky bag for a big of edge.

 2. How would you describe your personal style?

Pretty easy-going. I will never wear anything I’m not comfortable in – to me, style is all about expressing your personality and mood, so I’d never wear something just for the sake of a trend or designer. I like my outfits to not be either too girly or grungy. Somewhere in-between that is perfect for me!

 3. What advice would you give someone who would like to achieve this look?

To tone down the sexiness of a dress and still keep things casual when you’re dressing to go out, shoes are so important. A chunky heel in a more casual fabric is great for this. I always find silver jewellery good to add some boyishness to any outfit, and try a bag with an interesting shape to add an interesting element to your evening look.

4. Where did you purchase the items you are wearing?

The dress is from Motel, the shoes are from Topshop (via eBay – got them for a bargain £7!), the bag is a vintage find from my mum’s wardrobe and the jewellery was gifted from Astrid & Miyu and Trash & Trinkets.
