Transforming Tropical Prints

"With our eyes wide open
  And the doors all closing
  Surrender to your heart
  Remember who we are

  Running down the halls
  We're writing on the walls
  We never letting go

  Let my eyes be the rhythm
  Let my mind be your freedom
  You can take it all, you can take it all
  Let my heart be your shelter
  Let these bones be the giver
  Let this soul be your whisper
  You can take it all, you can take it all
  Let my heart be your shelter." Shelter, MachineHeart

Styling Note: One of the challenges that comes with blogging is how to create inspiring, on-trend looks without breaking the bank. Although some bloggers are fortunate enough to have reached a place in their careers (go ahead girl!) where they are sponsored or receive gifts from companies, I am not one of them. Every look you see on the site, I either purchased or made, like the jacket here. I am not complaining, by any means, but it does make me be a little more careful about what I purchase. Every piece needs to be able to be worn at least two ways.

So when I saw this topical dress from Pink Clove for only $34.00, I was beyond thrilled. Here, I have styled it how I would wear it for a summer night out. A faux leather jacket mixes well with the demi motorcycle boots. I added a pop of color with my cross body and kept my accessories simple with an art deco locket and two rings. Looking towards Fall (it feels like a long way off, I know!), I can wear this dress with tights, a long cardigan, a blanket scarf, and booties. Having this plan in mind, makes me feel more secure about my purchase. No buyer's remorse for this girl.

  2. Thank you so much! I was a little nervous because it's such a narrow silhouette, but love it now.
