Spring in the Desert

IMG_1094

I got this Free People dress as a Christmas gift and it instantly became one of my favorites. To start with it is a gorgeous shade of plum which remains versatile for most seasons. I also love the lace pattern, it makes the dress feel very feminine. The dress has an uneven hem line which invokes a more bohemian feel. My style tends to lean more to the preppy side of things, but I like dipping my toes into boho styles. This dress offers an easy way to do this, because it still remains very girlie and polished, yet it has very slight hints at hipster styles. One thing for certain is that I adore this dress and will continue to wear it until we reach summer.

Winter Winds

Oxblood was one of my favorite trends this winter. I loved this skirt and have featured it in past blog posts. For a day out in Chicago, I bundled up in layers and wore this skirt with a chambray shirt. I love combining chambray with skirts and more feminine pieces. For me it keeps the menswear trend more girlie and polished. What were some of your favorite winter trends?

IMG_1268Maroon has been one of my favorite colors of this season. I love the soft, velvet material in this pleated skirt. To keep it from looking too precious, I paired it with a white tank adorned with gold studs. My personal style tends more to be on the girlie/preppy side of things and I usually steer clear of studding. However, this shirt included studs in such a simple subtle manner that works perfectly for me. I also like that the shirt is white, so it keeps the studding from looking too dark and Gothic-inspired.
