Totally random…but do any of you have a problem with see-through skirts? These pleated chiffon skirts have been on trend this season. But everywhere I’ve gone, these popular skirts have without fail had one downfall; they love showing off my colorful knickers! How about a solution? Quick tip for today, nude Spanx is every woman’s best friend. Ladies, embrace them, it’s okay. After you’ve moved on from this skirt dilemma, keep the skirt casual by styling it with a cropped tee.

good morning

No, I do not live by the beach. However, I do live by a creek! Living in Ohio, there is an abundance of two things for sure; flat lands and lame rivers. Regardless, I still got to enjoy a beautiful day lounging near the water and embracing the breezy weather. Here I am wearing a body con dress layered over with a basic slouchy tee. The print of the dress is reminiscent of 80′s abstract pastel art, which is totally awesome at times. Mix that with a shirt with a scene of the 60′s to make it doubly awesome.

It’s starting to get a bit sunny outside! I decided to celebrate by taking a walk in my favorite neighborhood in German Village. I was in a cheery mood so I decided to color block. When color blocking separates I like to keep basic color theory in mind. Here I used a basic triadic scheme with the neon yellow/green skirt, blue blazer and orange watch. With those basic color set, I kept the rest neutral with the white lace shirt and white shoes.

trains across the sea

I recently accidentally stumbled upon this abandoned warehouse decorated with local artwork on the south side of downtown Columbus. I was rather intrigued by the graffiti art and to whom it was paying homage to. Turns out, Train’s Across the Sea is a song written by the Silver Jew’s in the early 90′s.

I looked up the song and I think it’s a pretty morbid. There’s a man who dreams of trains across the sea where there are “no troubles on the line.” Instead his life passes by and he lives as if there is no worth in it, like a series of boredom and bad events has created an apathetic attitude. I think passion is such a scary thing to lose, whether it’s a strong love or intense hate, it moves you towards a goal. So kids, make those choices that will drive you forward. Live with passion so you don’t become victim to apathy, live the life you will be happy with.

Anyways, here’s my outfit. (I wear this pleated maxi almost every day.)
