Styling a busy print!

styling a busy print

I love prints. And this star print which I have style quite a bit on this blog, is one of my faves. But I tell ya when I first got the skirt, it was like WOW that is a bold print. Even if it is a monochrome print. It is what one might call a busy print. Prints like this are easy to get overwhelmed by. And I by no means am a pattern mixing queen. When I mix patterns, it never ends well. People always say it looks bad. OR why aren’t you wearing a solid with that print. Stripes and flowers? YES.

black and white ootBut I was standing in my closet today and thinking what can I wear with what? And so I grabbed this off shoulder shirt that I have loved wearing, you can see more here and here. 

Then I grabbed the ALDO OTK boots and a belt. I knew I was going to wear this skirt. Back to black and white again. I know how boring…but I mean look at that print! I would have loved to go to the orange wall for these pictures but the place I do that at was off limits. They are cleaning the mess trees are down, branches everywhere still. Anyways, this skirt while busy can be toned down with the great plain but not so basic off shoulder crop. A crop that I could tuck in to the skirt. The only problem is random gusts of wind gave me a wardrobe malfunction. I had made a stitch to help that and I tripped and it came undone. UGh.

20161010_133709120161010_1335461This skirt is one of my fave SHEIN purchases. I am so glad I got it when I did.  I went bold with the jewelry and that turned out great!

    What a statement skirt definitely!! I absolutely love it.
    And what a great idea to wear the OTK boots with it—they are kinda like a surprise when the slit opens, but otherwise hidden away!

    My eyes keep going to that adorable bow belt! So pretty! This skirt is so different with the star pattern, which I love. That top just goes perfect with it!

    Hahaha!!! Your son is quite the charmer if he managed to wrangle the necklace off you, Stephanie 🙂

    Speaking of charming, how cool do you look? Like a modern day, edgy wiccan, if that makes sense? Cool and powerful.

    And if you haven’t yet, do come over and join my weekly Friday Link-Up? I’d love to see you there.
