Lately, I’ve been really feeling the free spirited, flower child kind of vibes. I’ve worn variations of this outfit several times and continue to get compliments on it! I paired some dark wash high waisted jeans with this ultra cute embroidered off the shoulder top. This outfit is all about accessorizing: the layered choker necklace (which is conveniently all in one!), the structured yet oversized hat, lace up sandals and jewelry are all a must for making this outfit a standout.
I have also worn this outfit with jean shorts, a lace white top and bright orange lips: it looked just as adorable! Another option would be to pair the accessories with a floral or printed dress, some lace up heels/booties and a chunky cardigan.
I love the fine details in this top: the scalloped edges and trim make it dainty and feminine.
Here’s a quick fashion tip I wanted to touch upon within this post….please don’t be afraid to mix brown and black pieces within one outfit! There are a lot of so called “rules” out there regarding fashion, none of which I follow! Of course there are certain pieces that look better than others, but you have to experiment to find out what works for you. Remember fashion isn’t just about trends it’s also about indiviudality so make up your own “rules” so to speak. If I choose to sport both black and brown pieces together in one outfit, I make sure to wear at least two brown pieces (i.e. the sandals and bag) and two black pieces so that it creates a cohesive and unified look.
Also on the note of breaking the rules: don’t be afraid to seek out items from both the women’s AND mens sections of stores. I had the hardest time finding a black oversized hat that I felt complimented my face (and head) shape. It was not until I stumbled into the mens section of H & M that I found the perfect one! As I have mentioned in several of my other posts, many of my favorite oversized jackets are mens as well 🙂
