Stripes & Florals Forever

Kahlo and I like to do the robot in the kitchen.


Since I don't really get to dress up very often (by dress up, I really mean wear heels), I decided that seeing Donatella was as good an excuse as any I'd come across to get fancy. I knew that I wanted to wear my flower print socks with my flower print Marc shoes. I figured it would either look really ridiculous or totally awesome. And dude, HOW AWESOME IS IT? Seriously, those socks just paid for themselves. Having decided on crazy footwear, I figured I had to go pretty simple up top, so I wouldn't look like a total maniac. I decided to keep it all neutral at the top, and I was just going to wear my favorite black skirt a black tee and a jacket. I actually decided to look through some magazines to get some ideas on what to wear, and that made me remember this vest and blazer combo that my mom got for me at Banana Republic forever ago. The blazer has been well loved throughout the years, but the vest is a little big on me (even though both pieces are the same size) so it's just been sitting on the hanger waiting for its moment to shine. I figured as long as I didn't take off the blazer, the vest looked great, and so my faux Proenza Schouler look was born. Pretty cool right? I love when you just sort of keep throwing stuff on and then hit on something that looks rad. I'll probably be wearing this outfit (and variations of it) for the rest of summer. Woo!
