Wild Pairs

new1
One of my wardrobe staples is a simple pair of denim cutoffs and a basic tee. I could put it on daily. But there are days where I crave that same staple feeling but with a little dash of crazy and daring. My new favorite wild combo consists of these tribal printed shorts and embellished crop top. I love mixing prints. Especially contrasting jungle ones! This combo is still a comfy pair of shorts and a perfect fit tee, but with a more adventurous attitude. I’ve been adding a denim jacket around my waist, carrying this fun neoprene clutch, and wearing some boots to complete this expressive look. Whether I’m climbing through a jungle in tropical paradise or tackling a day at work, this wild outfit will give you the necessary power to go at everything with a bang! Stay comfortable but don’t be afraid to get crazy with your basics and mix some prints!

Wear the Pants

Now that we are all back in the swing of things and fall has finally hit us, it’s time to put some pants on and get back to work. When you are feeling down about summer being gone, channel your feelings toward what cool clothes you can wear now. Fall is a new season to explore and enjoy. Imagine the places you will go this fall and the new friends you’ll make… and yes a new pair of shoes count as a friend! You’ve still got every weekend to wear a new outfit and see a new place. We get to challenge ourselves again with finding our fall style. I’m kicking off fall with some animal print pants and boots. Since the warm weather will linger a little longer on this side of the coast, a simple tank is a perfect compliment to these printed pants. As the season progresses it will be a blast adding new layers of style and attitude to these already bold pants. Fall comes with new adventures, responsibilities, and lots and lots of cool clothes so get on it!

Long Live Summer

As summer begins to come to an end, I try to get in as much time at the beach as possible. Long summer days should always end with a skateboard down the boardwalk as the sun sets to pink and orange hues. For these last few summer moments it’s fun to pick out an outfit that will work all day. It has to be perfect for rolling around in the sand but also ready for skating until the stars come out. A bikini, sunnies, shorts, and some high socks make you feel like the ultimate tomboy, ready for some final summer adventures. Summer ending doesn’t mean the heat is leaving us too, so investing in a good pair of shorts and cute bikini will only do you good. Shorts are perfect for transitioning into fall and there is always a tropical beach vacation beckoning you and your best bikinis no matter where you may be. So say goodbye to summer in style, but don’t say goodbye to summer style!
