How to Style a Killer Look When You "Have Nothing to Wear"

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.
