Dani's Wild Life

This look is inspired by my favorite throwback TV show Darcy's Wild Life.  If you weren't a big discovery kids nerd then you have probably never heard of it, so look it up.  I love this bag from Akira, this style is available but I linked a super cool clutch. I love the shoulder strap because I always forget I have something in my hands and let go.  

 My shoes are Steve Madden. They are not comfortable but so worth it.
 This super cool top is from Akira, one of my favorite stores in Chicago.

My skirt is from Forever 21, I love the simple leather trim and zipper detail.

Boston Bound

Hello Pretties!
I am writing this from my flight to Boston. I am so excited to be spending the next five weeks there but sadly I won't be blogging as much as I have been. I have some posts I have been saving so you won't miss me too much! I will try to write some posts from my phone but the photos won't be too great since my mom-tographer won't be with me. Follow me on Instagram @mermaidwaves for updates! 
Lots of Love

Wild Child

I was searching through my closet and of course I was drawn to my amazing Steve Madden orange heels.  I wanted a way to wear these shoes that didn't include my prom dress.  I would have never paired them with these shorts but the top looked awesome with the shoes and the shorts so I went with it.  

My top is by Lush and is no longer available, but here is a similar top.

My lashes look absolutely fab in this picture. I use Big Fatty Mascara by Urban Decay.

I love the baggy fit of these shorts, the length is also perfect. They are from J. Crew, here is another fun patterned short from J Crew.

Not Kim

Although I am basically Kim Kardashian one thing doesn't match up.  I am not privileged enough to never repeat my clothes.  I try my hardest to never repeat outfits but I definitely repeat individual pieces.   In this look I'm wearing the same dress and shoes as in Haute Pink, but this look feels much more laid back. 
 My dress is from Target (another reason I'm not Kim), but you can buy a similar dress at Lulu's.  If you have a simple white dress you can accessorize with a colorful necklace to get this same look.
My kimono is from forever 21, I love wearing it to the beach and over almost all of my outfits.  I love that the background is black because it really makes the colors pop.  The same print is not being sold but I linked an almost exact kimono. 

These super hot hot pink pumps are from H&M, they are a few years old but here's a pair from  Steve Madden (they're on sale!). 

 Me with my cool pop!

Scorpions and Sunshine

This is the perfect summer outfit, this dress is classy enough for dinner and shopping but the print screams summer and could also be a perfect beach coverup.  
 The dress is by Gentlefawn, I love the loose shape, and color combination.  The dress is super bohemian yet girly.  The shoes I am wearing are no longer sold but I found even cooler pink and black wedges.

 My gorgeous hair chain is by Hair Floaters, buy and enter code Dani10 for a discount!

Ballet x Fashion

I love how ballet and fashion are so similar.  They are both about visual attraction.  More and more you see fashion ads featuring ballerinas and ballet costumes designed by high end fashion designers.  I can't imagine anything more exciting than that considering ballet and fashion are my favorite things.   Today I went to Millennium Park and took some ballet photos in a ballet inspired outfit.  I will be doing more of these types of posts so get ready!

 I love the tropical print of this bodysuit from American Apparel, it gives a fun twist to the idea of a basic leotard, a girl can dream that one day this would be allowed in the studio.

 This fabulous tutu is from Urban Renewal at Urban Outfitters and is no longer available but you can buy one just like it from Space 46.
 My new friend!

 My super cool bag is by Ted Baker, its a mix between a jelly bag and a clear tote which are two of my favorite trends for the summer.

 Another friend!

Sweet Summer

Yesterday was my cousin's wedding shower and me and my mother looked fabulous in floral.  

 My top is from American Apparel, I love that it is knit and I love the neckline.
 My pants are Jack by BB Dakota and I bought at this boutique in Wicker Park called Emma. Emma is my new favorite store I would wear everything item there!

 My mom's skirt is from Anthropolgie, I love the contrasting pastel florals with the black.
 This top is by Ted Baker, the detailing is so sweet and can be worn with so jeans or dressed up. This gorgeous necklace is from Anthropologie (mother's favorite store).
