Stripes & Leopard Print; Introducing an Improvised Curly Faux Bob




Today's post is short and sweet. Can you tell I'm loving my #bodycon Vince Camuto skirts? I'm keeping true to my goal of pattern mixing =) I settled on two slightly different stripe patterns, and added leopard print for fun and texture.

I also changed up my hair, but it did not cooperate; a tinge of humidity in the air did not help. After wearing it straight for a spell, it is slow to return to its normal springy curls. Today it looks more like a soft wavy….something. So I pinned it up all around and made it look sorta like a faux bob.

Earrings: Gift from India
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack
Crop Top: One Clothing
Tube Skirt: Vince Camuto (just like the ones featured here and here)
Purse: Vintage, thrifted
Stilettos: Michael Kors
