snake-print pants: from night to day!

 Hat - H&M, Shirt - f21, Belt - Mango, Pants - H&M (similar affordable here, pricey here) , Shoes - f21

Shirt - Topshop, Everything else - same as above. 

I know its vacation season, and many of you are packing up and going somewhere exotic for the time being. The problem we all face during vacations is having a limited wardrobe. Nobody wants to break bank trying to buy new clothes because they realize the ones they brought are "boring", "just not summer enough", or simply "not enough"! This post is just showing that you can change the entire purpose of a pair of snake-print pants like these just by changing the top, the accessories, the color palette, the shades of makeup and the hairstyle. Its essentially the same outfit but you can tell which look is for day and which is for night! ;-) 
I hope this post is also helpful to someone out there who just bought a pair of printed pants and doesn't know what to do with them!

Yeah, its that time of the year again.. The resort collections are rolling in. We all have a dozen tabs of open scouring the collections our favorite fashion houses have to offer. This is one of my favorites: the Moschino 2013 resort.

Before I saw this collection, I considered Moschino a "vintage" brand. To me, they were the fashion house that created timeless pieces way-back-when which we can still wear today. The designs in this collection are so trendy, wearable and current - my opinions have definitely changed. The collection has got chambray, floral, pastel and neon elements: it doesn't get more Spring/Summer 2013 than this. MOSCHINO have a solid foothold in this era and they are not going anywhere!
Sorry Betsey, guess it's just you then. :)

Have a lovely week!

star-spangled fortune..

sunglasses - RayBan
blouse - Kasper
leggings - Zara 
arm party - L-R: F21, soho, F21.
watch - Michael Kors
bag - Urban Expressions ft. F21 scarf
shoes - Betsey Johnson

Got the chance to do an outfit post today, and I had so much fun with it. I forgot how exciting this actually gets. No matter how awkward it looks [to an onlooker] posing, smiling, running to and from a tripod alone in the middle of the afternoon - its a renewed form of happiness/therapy for me.

 This outfit is great for work, a lunch date, a night on the town, anything. Its that versatile, because of the colors. I had to remind myself it was summer by wearing "Girl About Town (MAC)", a neon pink on my lips! Oh, and to explain the name - those black polka-seeming dots are actually stars! :)
 Have a lovely week!
