Color you intrigued with the title, huh? Haha hello, hello, Marlen from Messages on a Napkin here! Today I'm styling an apple print skirt that I borrowed from Floral Prints and Common Sense. I like the cutesy apple pattern on it and wanted to challenge myself in finding a way to style up something so sweet.
Rachel is most definitely notorious for her quirky style and printed items (hello cloud print cardigans and cat print shorts), and I wanted to take a leaf out of her book and try it out for a day. I decided to do one of my favorite styling tricks and create a contrast with the cotton number. And by doing that I paired it with one of my most fancy vintage tops- a gold, sequined number that looks a lot like ethereal armor (yes, I just dropped a LOTR reference, haha) just....girly. It's a lot like wearing a baseball hat with heels (and if I knew how to walk in heels, I'd be all over that, too).
What do you think of the outcome? Do you have a favorite outfit that's got the contrasting casual & fancy vibe? If so, drop us the link! ;)
