I’ve always thought it would be cool to hike on sand dunes, perhaps even roll down a few if the opportunity presented itself. There’s just something wonderful about endless, rolling hills of sand with the occasional shrub or camel sighting.

I bought this Mara Hoffman tunic-y thing over a year ago and have only worn it as a beach cover-up but it’s far too beautiful to reserve only for beach side occasions. So I threw it over a black bandeau top and a pair of black leggings for an imaginary excursion on some sand dunes. I love the way it blows in the wind and all of its intricate aztec detailings that Mara Hoffman does impeccably well. While probably best worn only in the summertime, I can totally imagine wearing it in the fall with a heavy leather jacket (I feel like I want to wear everything with a leather jacket and I’m ok with that…) and some ripped up jeans. However, a hot day on some dunes requires the most comfortable and light apparel, but next time I think I’ll go barefoot.

Tribal Instincts

April 26, 2010

My initial topic for this post was going to be my “spring wish list”, but once I started gathering items together I noticed that everything seemed to fall into the same category: tribal prints.

Perhaps I’m drawn to these clothes because I don’t consider my style to be extremely girly. As much as I love floral prints and bright patterns, I sometimes find that they look a bit cheesy on me. Feminine silhouettes adorned in tribal fabrics is the perfect way for me to add an edge to my outfits. I primarily enjoy buying these kinds of prints and patterns at vintage and thrift shops, but they aren’t always easy to come by. Thankfully, these primitive prints are all over stores these days. Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Aztec Print Hareem Trousers - $70
  2. The Wanderer Cape - $58
  3. Samantha Pleet Baha Jumpsuit - $250
  4. No. 6 Ruched Bodice Dress - $285
  5. Pendleton x Opening Ceremony Boxy Blazer - $495
  6. Osborn Black Candela Jazzie - $98
  7. Animal Parade Bag - $328
  8. Wildfox Cowboy Baggy Beach Jumper - $108
