Statement pants have been an obsession of mine probably since I bought my first pair of floral culottes from Zara around three years ago. A friend of mine was doing a closet clean out and I honestly could not understand why anyone would want to rid of these paisley kick-flare leg pants but I swiped them up in a heartbeat.
These funky pants can definitely be worn in a business setting with the paired blazer but, for keeping my style true to myself, I wanted to make them into a “professional going out piece.” I styled a super cropped top from Forever 21 revealing my waist and threw a white blazer over it to keep the look chic, and semi-appropriate.
I had a lot of fun shooting this look and want to wear it in real life once it’s not scorching hot in Kansas City. Great transition look from dinner to night on the town.
This night, we spent Father’s Day going to see The King & I at Starlight Theater in Kansas City, Missouri. This venue is an outside stage so it was pretty hot but cooled off a little bit into the show (thank goodness). It was an outstanding performance and this is what I wore!
I usually keep my OOTD posts simple by only posting photos and links to the pieces of my outfit BUT I must make a quick comment on these jeans…
Maddie Koerner is a student at the University of Missouri and she reworks vintage clothing into something new! I bought these jeans from her that she hand painted and they are most definitely the coolest thing in my wardrobe. She is such a sweetheart and beyond talented! Check out her Instagram here!!
This year I have been insanely invested in my horoscope and zodiac signs in general (fun fact, I’m a Scorpio)! This outfit is one of my favorites I have put together because it reminds me of astrology! This printed blouse from Nasty Gal is literally covered in stars but I paired an excessive amount of silver accessories and accents to keep the space-y, whimsical aesthetic. This outfit is not complete without the jewelry and other accessories (bobby pins, hardware on skirt, bag); sometimes, it can be a good thing to over-do it with accessories and break away from the trendy “minimalistic” style.
