White Tee

Tribal Print Skirt: Target. Shoes: Jessica Simpson Julez Heels via Off Broadway Shoes. Clutch: Ross Dress for Less. Watch: Michael Kors. White Top: Guess. Sunglasses: Platos Closet

You've been forewarned before about my love for prints! I just can't help myself. And, I definitely couldn't say no to this tribal inspired print that I snatched up at my local Target earlier this spring. I'd been contemplating what exactly to pair it with. I debated a crop top with the same pattern since 2 piece sets are all the rage this season, but that wasn't quite the look that I had envisioned. This light weight, white blouse was the perfect top. I almost forgot how important it is to have basics, like a plain white tee. I like to keep my basic colors in V-necks for a go-to casual look, or it's nice to have collard tops in your basic colors to give you that crisp, pulled together look. What I love about this white top from Guess, is that it isn't too stiff and boring. The material is extremely light-weight, soft and relaxed. I could easily get away with pairing this top with so many other fits, which is the great thing about basics. So, moral of the story always, always, always! keep basic tees, and camisoles as a part of your wardrobe ;) Enjoy your Thursday loves!

Oxblood Leather, Plaid and Distressed Denim

Oxblood Leather Skater Skirt: Five13Studio or similar here. Plaid flannel top: Marshalls. Distressed Denim Vest with Stud Detail: JCPenny. Studded Ankle Booties: Ross.
 So, remember that one time a week ago when it was 70 degrees. IN JANUARY. Yeah me too, and I wanna go back OR fast forward to spring. Currently in the Carolinas, the high is 21 and, the streets are lightly dusted with snow and some ice. Yep, its an official SNOW DAY for us Southerners. Did any of you get snow? 

Obviously I took these outfit pics a week ago, you know when the weather was actually bearable. LOL. I hateee the cold weather, but do love the layering, the deep wintery wine lip tones and I love a cute pair of little booties. 

Since it felt like fall/spring in January that day(thank you awkward NC weather!) I decided on this Oxblood leather skater skirt, paired with a button down flannel plaid top, and a distressed denim vest with stud detail. 

Oxblood is such a sexy color for both fall and winter! Its deep, sultry tone add the perfect element of sass to almost any look. Skater skirts are also a huge trend now and are easily a transitional staple piece from fall/winter to spring/summer. Aldo has a great selection of patterned tights, and I got these crossed printed ones on clearance after the holidays for $6! They add some edge and give me that rocker chic feel.  Printed and lace tights are great accessory pieces to have in your closet, especially, during the fall/winter months because they have the ability to totally transform your whole outfit AND they keep you warm! heyyyyy!

Lastly, I added some bohemian vibes with this black bohemian braided head band from Target. Head bands are my go to for when I'm having a bad hair day, don't feel like doing my hair orrr just simply want to look cute. 

How would you recreate your own rocker chic/bohemian style look? 


Loving lipsticks these days! This is Revlon Plum Velour
