Reach for the stars! Styling busy prints


ootd shein zaful hmHi there friends! How are ya?! This is such a great day, right? Hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner. I am in shock about how quickly this year went by. And that I will have the munchkin home after next week for the holiday break. Which means, I need to get posts predone. Right? Maybe. Who knows.  I love having the booger home. He is the light of my life, my little star.

Today, on the blog  I really don’t know what to write. I am thinking about yesterday’s post, and that holiday stress has fried my brain. OUCH. I bet since the title of this blog post says Reach for the stars you are expecting something truly profound or uplifting . But then if you know my blog by now, that isn’t the case a lot with titles, it can be about my outfits. Which today it is! HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA. I have had several cups of coffee and am feeling great. Caffinated. I am feeling cafinated. And I can not spell.

So let’s talk about today’s outfit of the day and how to style a busy bold print!

Blogger outfit of the day

So today, I am wearing a gorgeous dress that is from Zaful and a skirt that is from SHEIN. I love these pieces. Why? The print of course!!! The print of these pieces are amazing, and when I got the dress from Zaful I noticed it was very much like the skirt I already owned. How very YSL. How very Valentino. Inspiration struck my brain and I went for the boldness. I have layered pieces to make a maxi dress look, read this post!

OOTD busy prints

I love the print and new where I wanted to shoot it at, remember I do all this myself. And took the fluff with me, he wanted to go for a ride in the car. And a dog is always fun to have around. Well, it was overcast when we got there and then the sun was like WHAT UP SUNSHINE?! LETS GLOW! And me, being very very very pale was like “NOOOOOooooooooo”  and then I got blinded. I got some good pictures but then reshot them at home. And why not, I have a lot of places to shoot pictures. Anyways.

The prints of this combination can be very out there and definitely attention grabbing. But the key here is to wear things to compliment it. I wore simple jewelry, and my shoes were the color for this outfit. I even kept my makeup on the simple side! My shoes were bright but that is it, and they work! The monochrome outfit that this is can be worn from the day to the night, just add different jewelry and grab a sparkle clutch. DONE. Don’t let bold and busy prints scare you. You can wear them, you can make them work!

I love that the prints at matchy because it looks like one piece, and if the wind picks up the slit it doesn’t become a fashion disaster, because the dress under it. It looks like I have a pair of shorts on.

By the way, I have only one new year’s resolution. Ready, I will buy a pair of shorts.

That is it.

I know, it is the best damned resolution ever.

HM jacket

Styling a bold print


So the outfit, I actually needed a jacket and I think the denim toned it down nicely, because while it is a very day time or night time look, it is also one of those things that can go promville quick too. SO the denim helped me out there. I  kept my accessories simple, I wore my Joomi lim ring and a simple necklace. That is it. Nothing major.
