Maybe it's my new hair color, or maybe it's my rebellious side, but I really felt like going a little street dark. I recently picked up this plaid sleeve crop top at Kakaako's "Pinch of Salt" event from Basique Threads. They are launching an online store where this, & other fun styles, will be sold! Stay tuned to their launch (it will be JUST in time for the holidays)! Click here for their FB page.
I paired the crop top with Topshop's ultra high-waisted skinnies. I DIE over these pants. They are sooooo comfy. They also help hide some skin because I ain't going crazy with the midriff. For a pop of color, I used a fun neon yellow bag from Florencia Arias' boutique :) It was $15 on Black Friday!!! Whoop! Just threw on some studded kicks for extra street cred, & mixed in the red plaid for fun.
This day was a bloody hot day! In my defense, the morning started off a little cooler so I thought it would be awesome weather to blog some fall black fashion. I miscalculated...ha. A couple of rather handsome skaters around made up for it. ;)
Besides that, I took to playing around the skate park....So many ridiculous outtakes on this shoot! Do you know how hard it is to stand slanted on a ramp? Or to sit on the rail of the pipe?? I def exerted what little athletic ability I have. Obviously, since I didn't post those pics, they were more hysterical than blog worthy haha. I'll probably be sporadically posting them to my IG @summerstylehi
