The best things happen when you mix opposites, whether it’s sweet and salty or lace and leather or graffiti walls and crochet tops. There’s a reason opposites attract. I loved shooting my floral skirt and one of my favorite girly, crochet tops in front of a graffiti-covered building and pretty much climbing on a commercial truck. The blue paint contrasts so well with the gray of the sky and the buildings. It kind of even looks like a nice day, rather than the rainy, cold day it actually was.
I once used this top as a swimsuit cover up that I borrowed from my friend when I needed one at the beach, but it works perfectly for day time with the right bra or shirt underneath. For these photos, I wore a nude bra, but I think a strappy black or bright colored bra would look awesome. Honestly, some of the best dresses can come from the swimsuit section. I especially love the ones from Marshall’s and TJMaxx. Look in the swim section for clothes and coverups that can double for day time. I highly recommend it for something different and unexpected that no one else will be wearing.
I also love mixing skirts and dresses with sneakers. Sneakers have been my go-to shoe for a while now. I love that comfort is finally stylish. Sneakers have become acceptable in most settings, including work, depending on what outfit you wear them with. I will pick sneakers over heels any day, even to a bar or dinner usually. I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to getting ready and what I wear and I hate feeling uncomfortable and getting blisters on my feet. I like the freedom of knowing I could go run down the street if I wanted to. Sneakers all the way.
I’m also thinking about selling the outfits that I wear on my blog posts at a really low cost, since its been worn. Would anyone be interested in purchasing an outfit (they are my personal clothes) from my blog, including this outfit?
Would love feedback!
