Summer is starting to come to a close and don’t get me wrong, I love fall. But I’m trying to squeeze in a few more days of summer clothes before the vests come out. I bought this skirt at the beginning of the summer on a whim and it has been my go to piece! First of all it’s pink, which makes it fabulous. Plus it’s very comfortable and bonus, has pockets! The perfect skirt if you ask me. So enjoy those summer clothes for a few more days before my favorite season begins! XO
Pastels, specifically pale pink are some of my favorite colors to wear all year long. The key for me in fall and winter is to wear them with darker colors, so I’m not washed out or too springy. Take this shirt for example- the perfect transitional piece because it is a thicker material, but still short sleeves. This shirt is also one of those pieces that is universally liked. The first time I wore it, my Italian teacher told me I looked like I had just walked out of a Chanel ad (might be the best compliment I’ve ever received). It is perfect for wearing with pink because it is feminine, but not too girly so you look feminine, but you aren’t trying to hard. XO
Fun Fact: My two best friends are huge One Direction fans so I have become one as well. Their new song, Drag Me Down, recently came out and was not my favorite, but the music video is awesome and makes me like the song more every time.
It is always harder to wear certain things if they have a weird connotation. Take leather shorts for example. My immediate reaction is leather booty shorts that are probably extremely inappropriate. But these are leather shorts. And they aren’t inappropriate! So how do you wear them? I think the key is to keep in mind that stereotype so you don’t fall into it, but then just do what you want. My philosophy when it comes to fashion is to wear what you like and what makes you happy. No matter what is in style or what everyone else is wearing. So that is what I did and here is the Taylor take on Leather Shorts! XO
So I will also be doing a new thing every post. At the bottom, before the links, there is going to be a fun fact of some kind so y’all can get to know me. Feel free to tell me your fun facts in the comments!
Fun Fact of the Day: I love wrinkly dogs especially ones for smashed faces. For examples, check out my Pinterest page!
Downtown Greenville, South Carolina is one of my favorite places and conveniently, my sister goes to school in Greenville so I get to visit quite often. Greenville itself is a beautiful town, but over the past 10 years or so, they have redone the downtown area so it is pedestrian friendly, there are a bunch of delicious, local restaurants, nice parks, and some cute hopes to look through. All in all an incredible place to spend time! Oh, also, that pop of color on my bag…well I wrapped a scarf around the strap. I absolutely love doing this because it gives a fun, vintage feel to any bag or outfit as well as adding a little extra color. XO
What does every outfit need? A little bit of pink! I wear a lot of black and navy, but I adore pink in almost every form. And I have found that the best way to wear pink is as an accessory to brighten up my otherwise neutral outfits. I love this shade of pale pink because it is extremely versatile and very feminine, but not overly girly. For this outfit at least, it just adds that extra pop and turns an otherwise boring outfit into a statement. Do you have any tricks for wearing pink or brightening up neutrals? XO
