It’s really hard being serious (for photos) if you see the kind of poses my husband would ask me to do, maybe I’ll save some for outtakes one day….but sometimes, the best photos are captured unplanned and candidly, in a secluded alley wearing your favorite little DIY red skirt.

Whenever I wear leopard it just picks me up. I mean, I could be having a shitty day but putting on animal prints just changed my mood and demeanor completely ( Rawrrr :). Leopard prints are classic and timeless, and with a pop of color like this bright pink bag will instantly modernized the look.

Sometimes you surprise yourself by putting together two pieces you had never thought of pairing with each other before and finding a look that you really like.

I’ve never been shy about mixing prints but I have to admit, I never thought about chevron + polka dots. The two prints are lovely separately but when combined, it somehow reminds me of either a toddler’s outfit, a table cloth, or an iphone case, all of which has never really been a style inspiration of mine. :) But when I was frantically digging in my closet for a top to wear with my polka dots midi skirt on Saturday night, this chevron sequin top fell next to to my polka dots skirt and instantly the combination gave each other life! It’s really a fun and bold look, perfect for a holiday, a dinner date or whatever occasion you set your heart on!
