Hey readers! Happy you’re here! If you couldn’t tell by the broad smiles on my face, I couldn’t be happier with the direction of my life right now. Blogging has truly transformed my outlook and attitude! I’m so happy to know that my blog is being received so positively and that my content inspires others! Though there are still times of self-doubt, each day I’m more and more convinced that this was in God’s plan for me from the start. I should have paid attention to that little voice in my head, saying “Do It!”, and instead I let negativity and doubt cloud my judgment. If you have a dream, if there’s something you want to pursue, something you’ve always wanted to do, take that leap of faith NOW! That thought that just crossed your mind while reading my last sentence? Yeahhhh…that one. Take steps to do whatever THAT is right NOW! It might just be your calling speaking.
About The Outfit
For today’s look, I’m giving you Aztec-Tribal princess! Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe the patterning on my dress is associated more with Mexican culture than African. If you do know, school me in the comments! Anyway, in my last post, I explained one of the tricks to mixing patterns. Be sure to check that post out for your first tip, but here’s another one! ◊ Tip: Successfully mix patterns/prints by combining items with similar themes/elements. In Styling Floral Print, I mixed one floral print item with another floral. Here, I’ve mixed tribal with tribal to create this royal look! I mean, I loveee how unique this dress is! Not only are the colors and patterning pretty, but also the high collar neck really sold me! I’ve seen Aztec dresses all over social media for a few years now. I even picked up some of my own in Mexico. However, I had never seen an “Aztec-style” mock neck/turtleneck dress. This one was only $17. I’ve included two really cute and cheap alternatives; link #2 is probably my favorite! Next up, my tribal Steve Madden heels! They’re a super old favorite! Too old to even be found online, but again, an alternative is linked above, and of course, it’s a chunky heel! Finally, my sunnies you may recognize from How To Wear: 70s Trend Flared Pants. They always give me a retro/hippie vibe whenever I wear them. Hence, my “peace sign” poses *laughs*. The red & blue tint work well with the colors of the dress and shoes.
This outfit got me a “YASSSSS BEYONCÉ!” from a passerby! *laughs* So pretty safe to say you’ll slay in this look! You betta get in formation!! 😉
Until next time!
