Dominating print

Skirt: Haute Chilli
Tank top: Mango
Bag: Zara
Ring: Forever 21

This skirt is 10 years old and is given to me by my mother. My mother and I have one thing in common, we do not give away clothes. Some people think it is stupid, some think it is better to get rid of old to make place for new things. Whereas my mother and I form a special connection with every garment we purchase and even though we don't wear it often, we keep it safely because we believe that one day will come when this same garment will be our saviour. 
In my mom's case, I get to wear all her treasured garments and  I would love to treasure it for my daughter(if I ever have). 
And as we all know that fashion repeats so treasuring them is not a bad option after all.

Mixing loud/bold prints could be a little tricky. If you choose to wear dominating print on your bottoms then see to it that the blouse/top/tank/shirt has minimal print. In my outfit, I wore skirt which has dominating print in my entire outfit and I chose a star-tank which has negative space between the stars which balances the outfit. 
Going little light on the accessories is a good option.

  12. Minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium are the
    real source of alkaline ash and are very good for the growth
    and functioning of the body. That is all you need to start a new habit
    and to start burning off calories. No matter what weight loss diet plans you use, it will always follow the same basic rules.
