    One Top, Multiple Looks

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin Possibly the most used piece in my wardrobe at the moment is this colorful button up. This piece has been appearing on my Instagram in a variety of ways for the past month. It’s colorful, light weight and perfect for summer look books. A must have for any wardrobe is a unique print, or unexpectedly colorful button up. A non-basic button up is incredibly versatile, and has the ability to be reused and styled in multiple ways. This top served as the centerpiece for this rainbow look. I really wanted the decal on the shorts to pop without being overpowered, the primary colors in the top really did…

    Bold skirts +Basic tops = a Winning Combo

    As anyone who follows me on Instagram, in my @soundsdarling account, knows I love mixing prints. Lately for summer I have been relying heavily on a few basic tops paired with bold printed skirts or rompers. All of the looks below that are still available have been linked at the end of this post. I am OBSESSED with this Blondie top. The red-orange text really pulled together with the stripes on the skirt. As you can see from my next photo this skirt has been getting a lot of use. Its fully lined, but is light enough that its comfortable in this July heat. Same skirt, different shirt. There was…

    Magnus Clothing Co. part 2

        Not only does Magnus Clothing Company  offer a wide selection of novelty collars they also design the most PERFECT novelty shirts and sweatshirts to pair with them. I paired the Fairytale Floral Collar and the T-Rex skull t-shirt together for my look. My style preference is on the feminine side and i really enjoyed the look of a floral collar with a casual t-shirt. Sweatshirt and t-shirt designs range from softer florals, to literary pigs, to Jurassic times DINOSAURS.  They have a very retrolicious vibe to them. Below I have  included a gallery of some of my favorites. The shirt was delivered to me well wrapped and carefully…

    Color Factory

    The color Factory is a 12,000 square foot visual experience in San francisco. It consists of  15 exhibits and takes a little under an hour. Upon arrival you register with Color factory to receive a photo card to be used at cameras spread throughout the exhibit. My favorite exhibit would have to be the ball pit. In the room there were several camera stations and ice cream samples. As far as snacks go you can expect a French macaroons and charcoal lemonade upon entering the exhibit and an ice cream sample upon departure. Other rooms exhibits include a room that intermittently drips confetti from the ceiling, an all orange arrangement,…

    ModCloth stylish surprise review 2017

    Once a quarter Modcloth has their “Stylish Surprise” promotion. They offer several categories that you can choose from ranging from shoes to dresses. Surprise items are offered at a steep discount, but are nonreturnable . I usually participate twice a year and have yet to be dissatisfied. My favorite category is shoes but this year I was too slow in ordering and missed out in that category. Instead opted for three surprise dresses (cost 20$ per dress) and one surprise apparel item (15$).               Stylish surprise 1: I had actually had my eye on this dress a few months earlier and was thrilled to…

    Personal style: mixed prints, novelty bags and more.

    When it comes to my personal style I’m inclined to favor a more feminine look with plenty of novelty prints and accessories. Some of my favorite clothing brands include Retrolicious, Bernie Dexter, Free People and pretty much any brand that Modcloth carries including their in house one. As far as accessories Betsey Johnson and Sleepyville critters are my prefered pics. Modcloth in particular is one of my go-to places to places for tops and skirts. They have one of the best collections of unique patterned skirts and tops
