Back with Marimekko

I took last week off from blogging for a few reasons. First, I wasn't really inspired to shoot new outfits and create new content. Second, working and teaching online has proven to be a lot more of a time commitment than I would have ever thought. Third, somewhat of a heatwave has hit Southern California and I always feel a bit lazy when it's hot out. Well, I finally got my act together and was able to shoot a couple of new looks for my blog. Actually, inspiration came in the form of a big box of goodies that I ordered from Uniqlo. I normally don't shop that much at Uniqlo but when they do a collaboration with Marimekko, which is one of my favorite textile designers, I go all out! I was so excited about this fun printed dress from the collaboration that I couldn't wait to share it with you!

I liked the print of this dress so much that I also got the T-shirt version of it too! It's the perfect, fun summer print that's full of color and life! I decided to pair the dress with a wide belt to cinch the waist because the dress is not fitted. I also thought I would bring out the cooler colors in the print with a blue cardigan and green sandals. Like I've been saying for the last two months, I can't wait to get the chance to actually wear this outfit out somewhere or even to work! I also can't wait to feature some of my other Uniqlo/Marimekko finds soon on the blog, so stay tuned!
