Fall To Pieces


Mixing prints has always been such a favourite thing of mine to do…there's just something about trying to combine two completely different prints/pattern and creating an interesting outfit. 


I kept my hair simple and messy, like I usually do as the "bed head" look always seems like the easiest go-to styling.


Crosswalk Top- Nasty Gal
Skirt- Forever 21
Shoes- Jeffrey Campbell

At the very beginning of the Summer, I remember styling this aztec inspired mini skirt in a post back when I lived in the city (SEE HERE). The styling was pretty different back then, as there was a much more polished feminine quality about how I had chose to pair things. However, this time around I wanted to the styling to be a little less feminine and slightly possessive so I paired the skirt with more darker elements and less accessories. 
The top I'm wearing is one I got from Nasty Gal and didn't quite think I'd actually like it or even wear it  but it seemed fitting for this look as the surprising element at the back adds for a bit of un expectance with these ginormous buckles crisscrossing each other. The look itself is great for Summer and with the addition of the black kimono it could also serve as a great transitional look from Summer to Fall, with little tweaks here and there. Summer is almost over and I'm really sad that I'll have to go back to long hours working in the studio plus no more super sunny weather… oh well that's just the game of life.
