White Hot OOTD

Standard
White Hot OOTD

Hello!! Your girl has been feeling herself with her brand new red and white hair and I just had to have Johnny snap some pics before we went to see his parents this past Monday. Of course, by some pictures I mean like five hundred thousand but who’s counting?! Johnny and I explored lots of different areas near our new apartment and were surprised to find a path that led right down to the creek that runs through the property.

We took pictures at three different spots within a five minute walk of our place. Because there are so many options from each location, I thought that I would share my White Hot OOTD in sections starting with some greenery behind our apartment:

^^^ Did you notice the cool shadows that the leaves made?!

Who? What? Wear?

As you all know, I am not a huge fan of dressing for summer but I think that I am starting to find my groove with the “less is more” mentality. Although I love layering and implementing different cold weather accessories come fall time, I have accepted that this isn’t the case in the summer and that’s okay. In the summer, as long as the outfit is cute, you feel comfortable in the heat, and are confident, then I think it qualifies as a perfect OOTD. And I felt all three of these things in this look!

While this White Hot OOTD is fairly simple, it still packs a punch and it is something that I would definitely wear again. I had been eager to wear my new Sienna Sky skirt from a recent TJMaxx haul and because of its bold pattern and sweet flounciness, I only wanted to wear things that complimented it as the focal point. To achieve this, I tucked in my Rachel Zoe tank as an obvious choice and kept accessories minimal with a small necklace and a couple of bracelets.

For the shoes, I went with my embroidered Sbicca heels from ModCloth and these worked well for many different reasons. 1) It had a lower strap that buckled at the heel. This gave me a long leg line that would have been cut short with a heel that had an ankle strap. You all know how much of a stickler I am for that!

And 2) Despite a different floral pattern on the shoe than what’s on the skirt, it still looked cohesive because of similar colors. The Sienna Sky skirt features a very light cornflower blue and the blue base of the heels is just a bit darker than the skirt’s flowers. Tomorrow, we will discuss mixing and matching patterns in more detail but always remember to look for the like colors to make this styling technique work.

I am so loving this OOTD and I can’t wait to share more pictures and styling tips with all of you this week. Tune in tomorrow so I can show you the creek and talk mixing and matching! ❤

If The Shoe Fits: Sbicca Platforms Edition

Hello everyone and welcome to the last item from my ModCloth Haul, which comes in a brand new edition of If The Shoe Fits! My favorite department to browse through on ModCloth’s website is definitely their shoes. And, if you know when to shop them, you can order yourself a new pair (Or ten) for dirt cheap. The end of summer and spring are prime shopping times in ModCloth’s clearance section, which is the where and when on purchasing these new retro Sbicca beauties. Take a look:

Whenever I see a platform heel that I love, it’s really hard for me not to buy them. Platforms are my absolute favorite type of shoe to wear, and I am always looking to add to my collection. There is something about the sexy 70’s shape that transforms any outfit and makes my confidence soar sky high. And, these embroidered denim babies do just that, as per ushe!

These Sbicca platforms are probably my most retro looking of the bunch, and I really like that. But, what I like the most, is that they give a strong tip of the cap to 70’s fashion without looking costumey. And, because the denim with tan embroidery and brass studs is neutral, these heels can be worn with anything and still look chic AF.

During my first jaunt in my new Sbicca heels, I wore black skinnies, a mustard yellow cardigan, a navy crop top, and a Panama hat and the compliments were coming nonstop. The denim on my platforms looked amazing with the mustard yellow cardi and everything in my outfit just fell into place along with it. My heels made me feel confident and cool for my entire day of work. But, the constant questioning of where I got my shoes certainly helped, too!
