Edgy > Classic

Moving Blogs - Lindstylefiles

Inspired by this amazing skirt and the designer of the skirt, Michelle DeCourcy, I keep on learning to take risks and ask myself every day, who am I trying to impress? The answer should be myself! I want to feel my best every day, (I mean - who doesn't?) And what some people may think of mixing patterns or styles and such should just be white noise. After all, if we all had the same style and played it safe all the time, how boring would the world be?

Motivation, as silly as it sounds, can start with what I'm simply wearing that day. I notice when I'm a little bit taller in some heels or booties I can feel on top of the world. Or, at least see above my fridge for once! It's the little things sometimes... 

Back to the Skirt

This stunner white lace skirt is easily dressed up with heels and a white silk blouse or tank with jewelry, or simply dressed down like so with ankle boots and a studded black tank-blouse to add flare to any lady's wardrobe. I love mixing the lace with booties for a more spunky wild vibe.
Simplicity in Black and White
What makes you feel confident? 
Your favorite vintage band tee and jean cut-offs? Cowboy boots and a boho dress? Full on suit and tie? Bright pink heels? Whatever it is, roll with that.

Disneyland's 60th

Mickey Mouse Club Dreams

I remember being in kindergarten and going to Disneyland for the first time. To my surprise, I still remember most of the amazing trip! Toon Town, Peter Pan, Pirates and Thunder Mountain Railroad still stand out, not to mention meeting all the characters I loved. There's nothing that compares to having your face hurt from smiling all day. 




I'm more than ecstatic to go to Disneyland this year come October! Landed this retro Mickey & Friends jean jacket vest from Ebay just in time for Disneyland's 60th Anniversary.

Disney gear is everywhere nowadays, so I wanted to find something older and not from Forever 21. Etsy had some great options, but Ebay had a few more affordable jean vests - just what I was looking for! Casual for layering, matches any bold color, and easily worn with tennis or sandals as pictured.

Happy Anniversary, Disneyland!

Aztec Summer Flare


I was lucky enough to find this aztec-like gem at Crossroads Trading Co in Portland on Hawthorne! You may say it was love at first sight. I must admit though, I was intimidated by the back straps. Believe it or not, it took me something like 20 minutes to make it look the way it's pictured below. There's a lot of adjusting but it was well worth it in the end. In fact, this funky-filled dress isn't complete without it. 

Easy to pair with any sandal or flip flop, you're likely to match this colorful dress one way or another. Super light and perfect for summer, this dress is something I'll have to make an effort NOT to wear every single day.
