I know this post comes about 4 days late, but the past two weeks took a lot out of me and recovery was necessary. I began my trip to California in Laguna Beach then went to LA, and ended up at Coachella. Coachella was a bit of a last minute plan, but it was so worth it. Hands down one of the best weekends I’ve had. I definitely felt a bit unprepared with outfits since I had been traveling (and still am) living out of one suitcase for over a month and I was hesitant to buy more clothing because my bag was already 18lbs overweight and bursting at the seams. So I had to get creative. But during festival season, when in doubt, it’s easy to spruce up any outfit with interestingly placed flash tattoos. And a huge smile (so cheesy, I know).

Wearing a t-shirt dress feels very freeing. Aside from cartwheels, round-offs, and sitting on the ground with your legs crossed, you can really move around without restrictions. And if the fabrics is super lightweight and soft like this one, it just feels great against your body.
Though a t-shirt dress is meant to be comfortable, you don’t want it to look sloppy. I paired this one with a cute color block sandal so that it would match without being boring. I threw on this chunky vintage necklace to make the look a bit more chic, and less grunge.
I wouldn’t call myself a diehard fan of Game Of Thrones. I started watching just to watch with friends on a Sunday night but I’m definitely starting to get more into it now that I (kind of) know who the characters are and how the stories are intertwined.
Sunday night I went to my brother’s apartment for the season 5 premiere. We made a Game of Thrones inspired meal, even ordered the Game of Cones ice cream from Postmates and watched the show. I have always loved the dresses and hairstyles in the show but I found this episode to be especially aesthetically pleasing… aesthetically pleasing enough to inspire a post.
The hairstyles in the show are so intricate. Here are some of my favorites …
I decided to try out my own Game of Thrones Khaleesi hairstyle
The dresses on the show are also beautiful. I would love to wear elaborate frocks and jewelry all day. Here is some Game of Thrones inspired style that I love.
I hope to one day have each and every one of those in my closet. But for now, a girl can dream.
I know in this recent post I briefly touched upon men, the color pink, and how to slowly incorporate it into your wardrobe. I had a guy reach out and ask a more specific question, so I will go into it a bit deeper. His question was:
What is your take on men in pink and purple shirts? And what type of pants are best to pair with it?
I think purple and pink are great for guys. Some men shy away from the colors because they find them to be too feminine or they are unsure how to pair them. While I approve of the colors, there are some definite dos and don’ts.
– wear it with a subtle colored pant
– select a more tailored fit
– try to pick a shade that goes best with your skin tone.
– wear a neon pink shirt (unless it’s to a festival)
– wear pink and purple at the same time (unless they are together in a pattern)
So in terms of how to work them into your wardrobe, here are my favorite options for purple and pink shirts. Click any image to be taken directly to the item.
The Pale Pink Polo
Something about a pink polo just reminds me of a refined guy who may or may not play golf or tennis, but who is confident.
The Pink Oxford
This is a great look for the spring and summer. Wear it with the sleeves rolled up for a more laid back, casual look.
The Pink Patterned Button Down
This is a way to incorporate pink without wearing a solid hue.
The Purple Gingham Button Down
A purple gingham is a great, classic way, to wear purple and look extremely put together.
The Purple Sweater
This is a great way to add some color to your look.
