Hope everyone has been enjoying the start of their week! I have really missed taking outfit of the day photos, and since school is back in and fall is heading our way, my weekly outfit posts are back, and ready to push fashion limits! I wanted to take advantage of the good weather we are still having in California at the moment, and came up with a cool daytime/night look.
I have had this floral blazer for a while now and haven’t gotten a chance to break it out, so I decided to create a floral edgy look with an all black under look and using pink and teal as accents. I think this look is still very fitting for the summer but leads us nicely to a fall wardrobe, getting use out of the bright colors by pairing it with a dark combo. Since purchasing my black envelope from Australian brand Ally skort a few months ago, I have gotten so much use out of it. It is a great versatile piece to have in your closet because you can mix and match it with many different looks and can wear it in any season.
I chose to go for a summery look, pairing the skirt with a striped, high-neck crop top. The floral blazer is from an unknown Japanese company that I got from a Boutique. I knew the perfect shoes to pair with this cool floral print, my new pointy toe pink cut-out ankle boots I swooped on sale at AMI Clubwear, adding just the right amount of chic, cool Cali vibe. To pull out some of the beautifully bright tones from the blazer, I sported a teal leather side strap bag.
One of my favorite accessories I chose to pair with the look to add that extra bit of edge, was a metal snake necklace that I got from Athens, Greece during my European travels this summer. I immediately fell in LOVE with it when I saw it because of the many different options and ways in which you can wear it. Because it can be molded into many different shapes, over the past few months I’ve worn it as a decorative upper arm bracelet, a wrist bracelet, headwear and finally as a necklace. For this look I chose to knot it and have it dangle, but because of the metal, it creates a tough edgy look to the otherwise very girly feel.
This look is great for many occasions and can easily be swapped out with a pair of heels for a more upscale event or look. Hope you enjoyed and stay tuned for all things fashion, travel and lifestyle.
