Strapless in Kaleidoscope

Sometimes my backyard is too pretty not to use as backdrop. I absolutely love these elephant ears, they have pretty much taken over though.  I planted them 5 years ago and they have come back bigger every year. The dark veining in the green is beautiful plus the leaves look like hearts!

Ear jackets are very popular right now. I am a fan of them, sometimes I wear one in each ear and sometimes I wear one ear jacket and a stud in the other ear. If you don’t know what an ear jacket it is, it’s an earring that frames the earlobe, it also can be called an ear cuff. You can see in the picture above I’m not actually wearing an ear jacket but I think it somewhat resembles one. I guess I am wearing a wild stud. 
I wore these earring for the first time in one of my first blog posts! It’s funny to look back, that post was before I had a camera. What a difference!
This kaleidoscope print is just so pretty to me. I actually got an off the shoulder top in this print because I loved it so much!

The Breakdown:

This top can be worn as a skirt or a top. I got it a year or two ago from Intermix, which is such a dangerous store for me. The print really stood out to me and when I realized it could be worn two different ways I was convinced I needed it. You can see I wore it here as a skirt last summer. I styled this top with black skinny jeans and burgundy pumps last October to make it more fall like. This top/skirt is definitely a piece of clothing that can easily be transitioned from summer to fall. 
I love mixing high and low clothing together and since this top was a little more on the expensive side I chose to wear more economical shoes. These heels are from Target but look way more luxe than they are, I think they could easily pass as Steve Madden or even Stuart Weitzman $$!
