Hello Imbeauties!

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m ready for Spring. It’s not that this Winter has been particularly harsh (it was 60 degrees here last week), but I’m just ready for longer days, thunderstorms, and green grass. Since fashion is my outlet for just about everything, I’ve been anticipating Spring by doing a little bit of wishful shopping. Sometimes it’s just window shopping, but that’s still shopping none the less. I’ve also been really busy designing and creating some new pieces for the DIY Collection and the Astral Collection.

For this #ootw, I want to channel the stellar inspiration behind the Astral Collection. If you remember some of my previous posts, I’m a huge science geek. I love anything to do with constellations and star gazing, so I’m going to style the astrology-themed Astral Choker into a full blown geek-chic look!

The Necklace:

I absolutely love the simplicity of this necklace. But then again, I like anything that gives off casually chic vibes. I think this necklace style goes well with the off-shoulder trend. I tend to go for effortless and comfortable pieces when I’m shopping for my own wardrobe, and this trend definitely fits the bill. I love when I can get my hands on a new silhouette that is still practical. Which brings me to the top I’m recommending for this #ootw…

The Top:

Cafe Parfait Top in Noir – 3/4 Sleeves

I absolutely love this style top. I think it’s super cool and versatile, which pretty much sums up my personal style. I would rather have 5 pieces I absolutely love than have 20 pieces I feel lukewarm about. This could very easily become one of my new faves!

The Skirt:

I’m also a big fan of skater skirts. There’s something about them that’s super transitional, so you can pull them off from Early Spring all through Summer. I usually pair mine with some sweater tights really early in the season! This planet print has me totally obsessed:

Can’t you just imagine running around town in this cute little skirt? I just love how casual-yet-polished it is.

The Shoes:

If you know me at all, you know it’s very unusual for me to wear heels. I just can’t be bothered to be uncomfortable all day. Especially now that flats are wayyy more diverse than just ballet flats. Don’t get me wrong, I love ballet flats, but sometimes I want to be a little more fancy. I’m really into T-strap shoes at the moment, and these light pink ones are perfect! I love this color as a clever alternative to nude; it matches just about anything:

The Rest:

As per usual, I would style this look with my everyday winged eyeliner and a pinky-nude lip! Pretty much any daytime makeup look would work with this outfit, but these are my go-to’s:
