I've been living in this Wildfox tank all week.
I've been living in this Wildfox tank all week.
I wore this ensemble out to a rural area for a little midday picnic with the boyfriend. The A.P.C. suede ankle boots that I snagged at the Net-a-Porter sale are taking over my feet due to their extreme comfort. Bright shorts in a light orange color from Siwy paired with a neon orange lace bralette from Maison Scotch added some color to the look, while the athletic oversized tank from Wildfox lended an athletic vibe. Oliver Peoples sunglasses, a Jimmy Choo fringe bag, and huge bohemian earrings finished off the outfit. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

The lovely Karina from Tea Leaf Clothing sent me this adorable crop top by Wildfox Couture. It is made in the USA and features a vintage inspired graphic print. I especially like the orange lettering against the heather black of the tee. I styled this tee differently from the last Wildfox Couture tee Karina gave me. I used this cheerleader crop top to dress down a fancy Grey Ant dress that I wore with a blazer a long time ago on Fashion Snag.
This Grey Ant dress has ruching detail and a bustier bodice, which you can catch a glimpse of when I lift my top up in the video. I loved the print of this dress and that is why I bought it. I think a dress like this can do double duty when you layer a cropped tee over it. Grey Ant dresses are always amazing and I wait until they go on sale to snag them at a great price. I have worn other Grey Ant pieces on Fashion Snag before, including a cute bow skirt. As always, you can click on any brand or designer in the lefthand sidebar and it will take you to all my posts that feature that designer.
I wore my most comfortable pair of heels by Camilla Skovgaard. Thanks to the saw platform on these things I can walk for miles. I also like the heart cutout in the front. I have way too many Camilla Skovgaard shoes, but I have a good reason for that. Her shoes are never painful and I think that is because a woman designed them, but I could be biased.

This outfit was so much fun to wear. I put it together in my head and sometimes outfits like that don't translate as well when you actually put the components on your body. In this case, I exceeded my own expectations. I love how the Wildfox Couture tee dressed down the beautiful lace shorts. I found the braided suede headband hanging around on the clothing rack on my way out the door. The sunglasses managed to really give the outfit a hippie vibe.
I was lusting after these Anna Sui lace shorts for the longest time on Net-a-Porter and it wasn't until they showed up on the Shopbop website that I finally took the plunge. They are made in the USA and have this cute lace-up front detailing. I think these lace shorts are different from others because of the antique white coloring and the circle cutouts. Out of all my lace shorts, this pair is my favorite. Because the lace shorts are so dressy I wanted to make them more casual for a daytime look. I did so by pairing them with this lovely Wildfox Couture native harley tee that Karina from Tea Leaf Clothing sent me. This top has the perfect shape so you can wear it off the shoulder for summer. It is extremely soft and I adore the native inspired print inside the letter O. That print is what led me to pick out this headband on the way out of the door. Like the Anna Sui shorts, the Wildfox tee is also made in the USA. Slightly oversized tops like these come in handy for dressing down fancy shorts during the day.
My Marni wedges have some brown and black in them, which I think worked for this particular outfit due to the headband and the coloring of the Wildfox top. These sandals are so comfortable, but I must admit my feet were a little sweaty due to the heat. The Free People suede braided feather headband has been hanging around for quite some time until it finally got to make an appearance on Fashion Snag. I think the tee and headband were pretty much made for each other. Any accessory with feathers usually catches my eye. My favorite outfits are always the bohemian inspired casual ones like these.

I love Wildfox Couture tees because they are oh so soft and comfy. As you guys know, I am a sucker for cat tees or any type of animal face on a t-shirt so when I saw this asymmetrical hem cat t-shirt pop up on Revolve Clothing I snagged it right away. Luckily they had a 15% off code so I could get somewhat of a discount on it, but I would have bought it either way because I think it is adorable. I love the cat's deep blue eyes and the raw cut hemline makes it easy to pair with items that need to be dressed down or even plain old denim shorts. Revolve Clothing is sold out of this Wildfox Couture digital cat tee at the moment, but you can find it on Tea Leaf Clothing as well.
I paired the cat top with a Pleasure Doing Business charcoal gray mini skirt that Tea Leaf Clothing sent me. You have seen me rocking another Pleasure Doing Business skirt in gold with my YSL woodstock sandals. I like this skirt in the gray color a lot because it is a nice alternative to my closet full of black skirts. Gray is a great transition color into spring. I think you could also pair this skirt with some bright reds or greens as the temperatures warm up. This might be the perfect skirt to walk around Vegas in on my next trip. The Pleasure Doing Business skirts are thick, yet very flexible and suck you in just enough. I find them to be very comfortable and a great snag for a reasonable price as compared to the Herve Leger bandage skirts.
For accessories I wore a new pair of shoes I snagged back in November from the Outnet. I am sure everyone knows how much I love Camilla Skovgaard by now so when I saw these suede cutout sandals pop up on the Outnet for 60% off I knew I had to snag them. They were a sweet deal and I think they have just the right amount of sex appeal without being overly sexy. The saw platform helps to take the edge off and also makes it much more comfortable to wear heels. I think Camilla Skovgaard makes such comfortable shoes because she is a woman herself and knows what it is like to walk in a woman's shoes. The design on these is very interesting and flattering to the foot due to the cutouts. For jewelry I went with a vintage stone bracelet I snagged off eBay a couple years ago. I really adore stone jewelry so this was a beautiful vintage piece I paid around $40 for because I fell in love with it. I also like how it opens and closes, making it really easy to take on and off.
