Be Bold in Rainbow

If I am given the slightest excuse to dress up and look fabulous, you know I will be there.  Last night I attended to Driehaus Awards for Fashion Excellence which is a night full of fashion and inspiration.  Student designers are given the opportunity to showcase their work in a professional fashion show.  I basically live snap chatted the entire show, be sure to catch it on my snap story (danimikay) before it disappears tonight! I was so inspired and in awe of the talented artists, I can't wait to bring that inspiration to MerWaves.

At any given event, fashion or  not, you can bet that 90% of the guests will be wearing black.  I'm so over it, there is a world of color out there and it can be just as chic.  So, I went a little color crazy.  I paired this bold blue skirt with a crocheted, rainbow halter and rainbow heels.  This was my take on the two piece dress, I love how this top totally transformed from on of my beach go-tos to elegant evening wear.  Of course, these rainbow shoes just scream fun, because thats what fashion truly should be about! Looking good and having fun while your at it.

Pajama Party Chic

Over the summer I wore pajamas in public (see here) and it changed my life.  Ever since then I've been on the hunt for the ultimate pajama set for day time.  The best part about the set is its not even pajamas, they are real clothes!  I am obsessed with this wide leg and camisole set, the all over print gives it a pajama like vibe.  This set is by Asos White, a private label by Asos that I am so obsessed with, I can not stop checking their latest arrivals.  With a bold set like this one I chose simple accessories like my white platforms, sunnies, and delicate jewelry.

Check Please

If you are a Mermaid Waves follower, you know I can't stay away from a good jumpsuit.  I am loving this new cut of jumpsuits that are taking over recently.  Imagine your favorite pair of culottes grew a top, and you have my new favorite jumpsuit.  Asos is one of my go-to destinations but I recently discovered Asos White, one of their private labels.  It is more high-end than the average Asos product and super fashion forward, the perfect label for the ultimate risk taker.  This piece is so bold and edgy but also makes you feel like you are in an adult onesie, its really a win-win situation.  BTW students get 10% off always with Asos Student.

Be a Gem in Jule

As many of you may know, I am a dancer so I am always on the lookout for the hottest new leotards. Every ballet dancer has a leotard addiction but pair that with the clothing obsession of a style blogger and you've basically created a leotard monster.  My latest obsession is Jule Dancewear.  I love their unique fabrics (two words: dot mesh) and their super flattering styles.  I have never worn a Jule leotard without being bombarded with questions and compliments.  So, I figured it was time to publicly share my leotard secret.   I  am loving this light pink leotard with sparkly holographic trim.  Hello 90s ballet queen!  The best part about this leotard is when paired with a pair of jeans it makes an amazing and unique bodysuit.  No one will ever know your secret!
