Before I switched up my style aesthetic, most of the prints and patterns in my wardrobe were pretty vibrant and often a little retro, which means that most of them have been handed down, sold, or donated over the past few months. But I realized I was missing the movement and interest added by prints, so I picked up this top which is both neutral and cut with a curved hem, one of my favorite design elements. It’s reminiscent of animal print, but nothing I’ve ever seen on an actual critter. So it’s interesting, flattering … and somewhat mysterious.
Scarves can be tricky in summer, but I love them so much I always try to wedge a few into my warm weather outfits. When it’s cool, I prefer that my scarves cover my entire neckline, but for this breezy outfit I eased up on that guideline.
And my skull-print obsession continues. Redbubble reached out to me about their Art in Motion campaign, which focuses on street style-inspired, independent artist-designed clothes and accessories, and I was excited to dig in and learn more. Earlier this year I bought this tee from Redbubble, and when the first size didn’t fit they let me keep it and sent me a new one for free. So I was already a fan of their customer service, and eager to poke around Art in Motion. The items in this new collection are stellar, and I couldn’t resist this soft blush scarf with a subtle skull print.

This outfit is from a cool day last week, but the scarf I’m wearing is made from whisper-weight silk that will work well into the hot summer months. I still don’t know how silk can keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. My first guess is “magic,” but it’s probably something slightly more scientific …
