Scuba Meets Vibrant Graphic Print


The weather has been unseasonably mild here in Southern California. It's hard to fathom that we are nearing the end of January.




Today's post features an outfit that's perfect for a mild evening/night out. 

Of course, being the lover of vintage that I am, I "needed" to wear my elbow length vintage gloves. 
No, but seriously, they are a nice alternative for milder temperatures when going sleeveless. 
If temps are cooler, a shirt can be worn underneath and tights along with boots.

The dress is easily transitioned to the cooler night air with a moto jacket.



 I really like my crochet collar necklace, as it dresses up the neckline. 
For a more casual look, I remove the necklace, gloves, heels, clutch, and moto jacket. 
Instead, I pair it with a black sweater, ballet flats, and a handbag. 
 The colors and the print in the skirt of this dress are very vibrant. I wanted them to be the main focal point. 
To accomplish that, I kept all accompanying colors dark. 
Jewelry: Nordstrom Rack (For those that follow me on IG, you know that I scored the earrings for $1.00 USD!)
Dress: Just Taylor
Leather Gloves: Vintage, thrifted (similar worn here)
Faux Leather Moto Jacket: Jones New York
Booties: Kelsi Dagger (also seen here and here)
Clutch: Vintage, thrifted

  3. I love the print in the skirt and how you styled the outfit with the elbow-length gloves. I never would have thought of that. It's so clever.

    1. Thanks CoCo!!! I wear it with ballet flats to work, and it gets along really well ;) Although those gloves are vintage, I have a quarter length pair from Victoria's Secret online (a few years back) so I imagine other online retailers may sell them too.
