Not too long ago a good friend of mine gave me a sweet “just because” card with a gift card in it to H&M. Talk about a nice little surprise!! I wanted to share one of the tops I had been eyeballing on the website and got to purchase this weekend. I liked this top because I thought it was a unique take on a mesh top. It also came in black which is what I typically would go for because I am a sucker for black clothing. I decided to be different and just go for it. This shade of red is a lot of fun because it is nice and bright and has an orange undertone which I feel is a more flattering shade of red with my skin-tone. It also matched a pair of shoes that I already had! Typically, I don’t go for matchy-matchy but I liked it for this specific look because I paired it with the black bralette to help break up the red along with my new dark jeggings from Talbots (my new denim obsession-seriously, go try a pair on because you won’t regret it). I would wear this look for a night out with the ladies or a date night with your significant other.
I also liked the challenge this top gave me to style it differently. Here, I decided to pair it with a black tank for a more casual look and my go-to leopard-print slip-ons. I also threw on the lace kimono and black fedora to show different layering techniques. I would wear this look multiple places such as a downtown art fair or a day of shopping (a great look that can mask a bad hair day and provide a trendy look without much effort.
Lastly, this shows the look without the hat in case you aren’t a hat person. Simply by taking off the hat it transforms this look. What color would you like to wear more?
Your Faithful Dreamer,
The past three days have been unseasonably warm. It inspired me to do a spring fashion post. Most of you probably know what I mean when I say, “nautical,” but if you don’t it’s a type of fashion that is inspired by being on the water. For instance, since I live by a river this is a nautical look you might see me wear on a boat (without the heels of course).
I love different hues of a deep blue. This color is key when it comes to styling a nautical themed look. Stripes, polka dots and of course anchors all work wonderfully to pull a nautical look together. Different shades of red work really well too.
This striped scarf is a silk, light-weight piece to add more pattern to the look. **Warning** This does not provide warmth, trust me! (lol) I loved the way it was blowing in the wind to show the bold stripes and beautiful hue.
I’m not afraid to add patterns on top of patterns, so I paired these beautiful earrings from Permanent Baggage, which I found at Wit & Whimzy. You’ve probably seen me wear the necklaces below that are also from Wit & Whimzy. I love representing the “740” stamped necklace for so many obvious reasons. I lived in Columbus, Ohio for 5 years so I was excited to learn that we had access to Red Giraffe Designs here locally!
Here you can see my oh so famous leopard accent 🙂 I also love any reason to sport my lynne&lucille bullet necklace from my husband. I may love fashion but I know how to hang with the boys too when it comes to shooting 😉 Feel free to share your favorite nautical look with me 🙂
If you haven’t noticed already, I decided to include the new fringe denim trend into this look for fun. I had two pair of white denim and I decided to cut them at the bottom myself to see how I liked them. Well, I LOVE them! I’m not surprised I do since I love any type of fringe or tassel detail. Get brave and try a new style yourself. Rip up some old denim and get crazy! ❤
Your Faithful Dreamer,
