Eclipse

This skirt reminds me of something dramatic and slightly scary like when the moon eclipses the sun.

I like the fact that I paired the skirt and tank top- both items that hold completely different patterns- together and formed something that seems a bit cohesive... at least in my mind.

i love mixing patterns as well....though it probably takes me far too much thought.


i hated lord of the flies. haha. you'll have to let me know what you think, if you haven't read it yet...

Catherine said...

Your skirt is awesome! And I hated Lord of the Flies as well, haha.

Stupid Girl said...

That skirt is beautiful.

<3

Austere said...

I really like the print on your skirt. I agree, very other wordly. I remember reading Lord of the Flies for the first time and thinking of the Stanford Prison experiment where people totally lost their identities because they were caught up in the situation they were in. Loved that book.

Sweet bag as well.

Daphne said...

Love the combination. It feels so perfectly natural. Lord of the flies was one of my favorite books for a long time when I first read it. Such a well written story - are you reading it? I also love that belt! You look beautiful.

Pilar said...

that is an amazing skirt. And also an amazing book you're reading!

Suprisingly, this outfit does look cohesive. I like it!

Anonymous said...

the bra thing kinda annoys me massively, it;s really distracting, i noticed it in your other entry also.

but besides from that fact, the rest of the outfit it real cute.

rachel d. said...

i'm liking the new header! more, um, minimal. it looks nice. you can see the pretty sun in the photo much better now. also, just saying i love most all your outfits and i love your blog!

I love the pattern of your skirt!

Claire said...

It's beautiful :)
BTW I have a question : Do you know if American Apparel's clothes and especially 'cycle shorts' size larger than the written size or smaller ? In fact, I think I gonna order a M on the online store, but it's a really M or it's more like a S ?
Thanks for answering

your skirt is delightful! i love the print

What's up with the overexposed bra lately? There are creeps on the internet and you are 14...No more black bar but plenty of black bra??

Summer said...

Such a nice skirt. I like it's style. And it look so good on you.=D

sharon said...

I absolutely adore your blog, and everything about it. Your outfits are fabulous. Which is why I don't understand the over exposed bra. The bra really distracts from your awesome outfits, and frankly it is not classy. Nix the bra, wanderer!

Sharon said...

when I said nix the bra, I meant to nix the exposure of it! Sorry for the mix up :).

Sarah said...

This is amazing -- not two things I'd think of putting together, but they work so well!

Isabel said...

This outfit is spectacular. When I say the skirt is epic, I mean it!

Annie said...

oh, lord of the flies. super creepy but actually really good! you look a bit like a tree, in a fabulous way of course.

Talk Pretty To Me said...

Ingrid (Garments and Gardens) said...

I really, Really like your outfit and the pictures made my day. I do think they have already told you, but you kind-of look like Charlotte Gainsbourg

styledigger said...

This outfit is so gorgeous, and I love the photos- your blog is really inspiring place.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, mixing patterns... but seriously the back of the skirt just behind the belt and the bra... I'm sorry to write this, because I usually like your style, but this is just awful.

Shin said...

Stunning skirt! xxoxoxo

Kat said...

This look works perfectly with your long loose hair.

claire- they are true to size, so if you are a small, then you ARE a small

anonymous, anonymous, sharon- Hey guys. Truthfully I didnt know my bra was exposed in the back until after the pictures were shot. To tell you the truth I kinda like the lines and how it matches with the black belt below it. That said, Im not making the black bra thing a life choice, you guys just happen to have caught two sets of pictures with it in view. Its also incredibly hot here. Thanks for your comments. Dont worry about me. :) (And LOL sharon, I got it)

cindy said...

Hi! I'm new here in your blog and I just want to say that I love your skirts. They're super original and not to mention not too revealing. I love how different you are to other girls right now that think the shorter they wear the better. Keep on doing what you do and I hope you won't change!
