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!!

Happy Tuesday! I made a goal this year to branch out of my “set” style and try out new things. I tend to dress pretty edgy using mainly neutral colors but I don’t want to stay in that aesthetic because there is only so much one can do within it.
For this look I paired a bright, mint green blazer that I thrifted with a faux leather pleated skirt and white pussybow blouse. My original idea was not to be preppy and gossip girl-esque but the outcome looks kind of like I stepped straight off the show. Not only do I get those vibes, but I also felt like I could be strutting down a street in Paris.
Remember that you don’t have to stick to one style to define yourself. It is so much more fun to try out other aesthetics and to add your own little twist.
