My star filled plans for both you and I this week? They’re on hold. I’ve been in bed with what can only be described as the worst summer cold. Chills, fever, dizziness- I got you. I had plans to write, which is hard to do when you can barely string thoughts together. So instead? Let’s star gaze!
Star Gazing can mean multiple things. Maybe you grab a blanket and head out side in the middle of the night to see a show in the sky. Maybe you hang out in LA and look for celebrities. Maybe you grab your telescope and plot constellations. There are a ton of different ways and thoughts on how to star gaze, my take? How to star gaze: be the star.
Note: This is not a post about how to be a star. When I was a little girl I dreamed of being a movie star (ok, I still do). I don’t know that I have a fool proof plan on how to be a star. BUT! I can wear a star (like a star! Too much?) and I think that has to count for something.
So let’s be specific: how to star gaze, wear stars.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that stars are a pattern that are close to my heart. I love them! On skirts, tops, dresses, shoes, there’s just something so classic and yet fun about stars. What I love about this star skirt is that it’s both subtle (almost like polka dots) and stars. The pattern is just small enough to be a neutral, and yet people will love it. Every time I wear this skirt someone comments on it.(SideNote: The slits are also a conversation starter. Basically, if you want people to talk to you, get this skirt. )
Another note: Yes, I am still wearing midi skirts and sweaters. I can’t stop. I don’t want to. Let’s just get all the skirts and wear them with all the sweaters. (You can see more of my current styling obession here and here, but it’s clearly different this time. It’s stars!)
The skirt is made by RIXO London. They take the most amazing silks and use them to make luscious skirts/tops/dresses based on vintage patterns. It’s the best of both worlds and you should check them out. I won’t apologize for loving a great cashmere sweater, and if you don’t have a grey one we need to fix that now. They go with everything. These shoes are old, but I’m not against you finding a great pair of black peep toes, frills or not. A pair will help you star gaze.
I’ve linked all these sorts of items below for your shopping pleasure (last note: you deserve to get gifts at this time of year, too). I’d love to know: how do you star gaze?
