Outfit // Punk Rock Princess

Hello, hello! Happy Monday! Here we are with yet another week. I really don't understand why it feels like time is flying so quickly! The end of my semester is in sight, although I still have a lot of work to do before it is over. Studio art classes can be difficult because everything requires so much time and there is project after project. Sometimes I wish I could just study for a test and move on! In the end, all the work I have been doing is really rewarding and I am learning so much. It just feels so good to be creating again! Hopefully at the end of the semester I will share what I have been up to :)grey, tutu, tulle, princess, skirt, modcloth, kohl's, Lauren Conrad, ModCloth
Things have definitely been cooling down here in CA and I can still get away with wearing dresses and skirts without tights, but I don't think that will last too much longer! I will soak it up for as long as I can though :)

I always strayed away from skirts in general and never felt like I knew how to style them very well or that they were very flattering on me. That all changed after I found this skirt and I have been hooked ever since! I have added four new skirts to my wardrobe since then and am having a great time playing around with all the ways I can wear them.

This particular tulle ballerina-ish skirt is probably my favorite addition to my collection! I came across it on a shopping trip at Kohl's and just knew I had to have it. I love the neutral color of it, which makes me feel a little more grown up while wearing it, rather than feeling like I should be playing dress-up with my four-year-old little cousin. grey, tutu, tulle, princess, skirt, modcloth, kohl's, Lauren Conrad, ModCloth grey, tutu, tulle, princess, skirt, modcloth, kohl's, Lauren Conrad, ModCloth
I have only worn it a couple of times so far, but when I wore it for the first time while out and about shopping in Santa Monica with Dai, I got 5+ compliments on it! While waiting in line at Starbucks, a girl who works at Anthro told me she loved it and that they just got a $200 one in their store that looks just like it. I assure you that I definitely did not pay anywhere near that much for it, so I must be doing something right :)

I also recently purchased this necklace to wear to a wedding and I really love it! It is the most unique one I own due to the fun shapes and multicolors. This has been the year of statement necklaces for me and I plan on adding many more to my collection since they are such a nice touch to any outfit!grey, tutu, tulle, princess, skirt, modcloth, kohl's, Lauren Conrad, ModCloth
Just a last little note on this skirt: I really love how it can be dressed up or down. Add some heels and a fancy hairdo and you're ready for an elegant party! Or, dress it down with some flats and your favorite t-shirt to add a little flair to an otherwise ordinary day. Plus, in all honesty, I feel like a grown up princess (or maybe a punk rock princess... SoCo anyone?) when I wear this skirt and what's better than that? :)

Hope you all have a great week ahead and that you're able to add a little fancy to your day as well ;)

I'm pretty sure that you get more gorgeous overtime you post. I am IN LOVE with that skirt!!!!!

Jess said...

I saw this outfit in the Style Gallery and was like GIRL TELL ME WHERE THIS SKIRT IS FROM, so ive been waiting (not patiently) for you to share it on your blog haha

Jess said...

whoooa this is stunning! love the skirt and necklace. and these photos are fabulous! I also love midi skirts, they are just more comfortable. you dont have to worry about them flying up (well, at least not as much haha.) and I love that you called it a "punk rock princess" look -- now that song is gonna be stuck in my head all day :)

Jess said...

Haha you're too sweet!! Definitely RUN to Kohl's and get yourself one :)

Jess said...

I'm not even going to lie....I did look online but they don't have my size in stock for either color :(

Jess said...

Thanks Leah! That is actually a really great part of wearing midi skirts! And when you sit down they cover everything haha. Also, I definitely had to listen to that song today because of this :)

Jess said...

Haha Amber, you're hilarious. I actually didn't mean to post it in the style gallery so long before i was going to post it on my blog, but my blogging plans changed last week and I had already submitted the photo since it takes a while to process! Also, now I'm glad I took the time to find the link to the skirt since I am often lazy with that! Hope you order one for yourself!!

Jess said...

Oh my! You look gorgeous! Is it creepy to say Ive been totally obsessing over these past outfits you've created. This is just gorgeous. I also wanted to add I love Lauren Conrads line for Kohls. I don't think it gets enough credit. With my next paycheck Ive been eyeing some adorable beaded sweet treat sweaters she has. I might have to add this skirt to the list. Midi skirts are everything! Especially since Im curvy, especially in my lower portions, not quite pear shaped but still. So Ive just been so pleased that midi skirts made a comeback. Plus they are so classy. I totally am with you, so close to the end of the semester I can taste it. It'll be so nice to have a break.
Random last thought but I love your layout who designed it. I think I want to rework mine and have been searching for a new graphic designer.

Jess said...

Thanks so much Justine! Haha no that's not creepy at all! Glad you like them :) Yes! I totally agree about LC's line! She has a little retro flair, which speaks to me. I really only go to Kohl's to check out her stuff. Definitely add this skirt to your list! You won't regret it. Midi skirts are so classy.


I actually designed everything on my blog myself!! You could hire me ;) haha I don't actually think I'm qualified to do something like that yet, BUT maybe just maybe.

Jess said...

Absolutely obsessed with this outfit! These colors look so beautiful on you! <3 and hooray for the semester being close to an end!

Jess said...

That skirt is so cute!

Jess said...

Thanks girl! Yes, definitely excited for the end of the semester!!

Jess said...

Thanks Chelsea! One of my favorite pieces in my closet for sure :) Thanks for stopping by!

Jess said...

So adorable, love the skirt! I really enjoy reading your blog! =)

Jess said...

Ah I was so sad to see the skirt was sold out as I did some black friday weekend shopping on the kohl's website. Some LC stuff I wanted just wasn't available at any surrounding stores.

Jess said...

Oh also. I would totally hire you if you felt comfortable. But I don't know if the design I want is too complex. To me it all seems difficult since I do not know html at all and am very basic with photoshop

Jess said...

You're so sweet! I'll shoot you an e-mail so we can chat about what you want :)

Jess said...

What a bummer! Luckily she will have more great things to come I am sure!
