Pretty in Pink, Purple, and Teal | Hannah x Emily

Outfit: Abstract printed peplum sleeveless top, pink moto jacket, teal belt, black jeans, teal low chunky heels

When it comes to my style, I’m just making it up as I go along. I’d argue that we all are!  In fashion, the rules are set by others. In style, you’re in complete control of a look.

While I’m happy to be sporting a teal bow belt from Emily, this outfit was actually created around my peplum sleeveless top! In this post, I’d love to share with you one of my personal “rules” for getting dressed that tricks others into thinking that I know what I’m doing, in terms of clothes.

This top is my favorite kind of thing to style because it’s just so vibrant. It also has a bunch of colors that can help me put together an outfit. That’s where my trick comes in – you can just pull colors from a multicolored top and it’s almost a cinch that everything you wear with it will match.

By default, I think a lot of us just want to wear basic colors and call it a day. While I did do that by pairing my top with black jeans, I wanted the rest of the outfit to be fun.

This top has hues of blue and pink so I added my pepto pink jacket, Emily’s teal bow belt, a ridiculous cocktail ring (I don’t even know where it came from!) and matching teal shoes. Voila, it looks like I knew what I was doing when really all I did was match the colors of my outfit to my top. It’s elementary!

So did I trick you? What tips or “tricks” do you use to put together an outfit? Let us know down in the comments. Sharing is caring, after all. ;)

Everyone Needs a Tulle Skirt and This Is Why | Hannah x Kristina

Outfit: pink tulle skirt, striped crop top, denim jacket, vintage pins, thrifted teal shoes, purple hair, red lipstick

If there’s something a tulle skirt doesn’t match, I have yet to find it. Neither has Kristina, who let me take her tulle skirt for a spin.

Let me just say, I absolutely adore it! A tulle skirt is now on my own thrifting wish list and here’s why:

  • It’s perfect. ‘Nuff said.

But really, I had so much fun dressing up in this skirt. I styled it a few different ways but this was my favorite because it was the outfit I wore for my 25th birthday back in March.

Despite not having taken a ballet lesson since the age of 4, something about this skirt brought it all back to me. I was definitely twirling all day and I think this skirt is the culprit. (Or it was all the cake and ice-cream I was hopped up on!)

But because I’m a grown-up now, I wanted to style this skirt in a grown-up way. I went with a striped crop top, colorful shoes, and my trusty denim jacket decked out in vintage buttons. This girly-girl meets tomboy look is killin’ me!

If you’re on the fence about buying a tulle skirt, just scroll through this blog post again and tell yourself to just go do it.

Be sure to check out Kristina’s blog because she’s styled this skirt a plethora of ways. There’s so much inspiration to be had!
