I’m a brat, I’m a selfish punk, I really should be smacked

   Lets ignore the long absence and jump right into the stellar outfits.  Thats right, outfits-plural, because I have a fashionista buddy!  Introducing Derek, my Kirk to my Annie (wearitbothways.tumblr.com)

Dip dye has been my latest obsession, and its something easy to DIY as well.  Get ready because…the shirt below was thrifted and DIY’ed.  While you pick up jaw off the floor, let me explain the super difficult process.

1.  thrift a shirt

2.  getcha self some bleach

3.  find a cheap bucket and fill it with the bleach

4.  dip the thrifted shirt into the bucket and let it rest for 3 minutes

5.  wash and wear-repeatedly

Now wipe the sweat off your eyebrow because it was crazy complicated and enjoy our own version of wear it both ways!

Shorts: Old Navy (now on sale for $10!), Top: Thrifted & DIY’ed, Sandals: Old Navy

Wishlist Wed: Summer Sandal

TMSF: Summer Sandal

 Although these ankle strap sandals look a little painful, I can’t get them out of my head!  I was over the moon when Steve Madden introduced the nude sandals (top right), they are a pretty close match to the Giuseppe ones.
For ladies with shorter legs (aka me), try looking for thin ankle straps as they prevent making your legs look stumpy.

girl gone wild

…with colors! (is it M.D.N.A or Madonna?).  Don’t know anymore, but I do know that color blocking has been one of the funnest trends to try.  A week back, Derek (http://fromshoestospecs.blogspot.com) and I embarked on a photo-shoot with Colin, a super talented student with mad camera skills.

I went for a bold approach (obviously) and I loved the end result.  I kept it casual by adding the trusted jean jacket, a serious wardrobe staple.  Color blocking is one of the trickiest trends to pull off because it has to be cohesive.  Try combining soft colors within the same color wheel first, for example mint with navy, then progress into diva territory.  Go for yellow and purple, orange and pink- be fun and fearless!

With the heat creeping up on us rather steadily, I suggest the outfits below for a summer friendly version.
