Hey Mer-babes! I have been putting lots of energy into some exciting projects outside of Mermaid Waves (read more about what I have been up to) and was beginning to run low on outfit inspiration. Yes, even I have those days look blankly at my closet and see nothing. I decided to start with a single piece and build from there, I chose this babely (my new favorite word btw) mesh jacket by Happiness. Then I took to Pinterest (follow me!), I started going through my Street Style board and found a pin that styled a track jacket with a pleated skirt, the inspiration started to flow again! I still couldn't figure out the middle piece, I had the jacket and the pleated skirt but I needed a third piece to bring it together. I simply looked up "mesh jacket" on Pinterest and found a super cute photo of a girl wearing a similar jacket to mine layered over a polka-dot button up, I loved the look of the mesh over the dot print so I decided to take it on for myself. The final look came out totally different than the original pins, no outfitter stealers here, but sometimes a little inspiration is all you need to create a totally new look!
This look is a little different than my usual, I don't usually rock skirts above the knee or polka-dots, and both in one look is basically unheard of! This Who What Wear dotted top (shop here) is a great piece for layering, imagine the dot collar peeking out under a sweater, way too cute. Since my legs felt a little bare in this faux-leather pleated skirt (shop here) I added a pair of sheer black tights. I am super into tights lately, they are part old-lady and part chic which is super on brand for me. To make my look feel a little more "me" I added my favorite black boots (shop similar), and of course my signature hoops and choker. Also, check the "Hello Haters" sleeve detailing, I'm obsessed.
