Today's Everyday Fashion: Aztec x 2

I simply can't get enough of the aztec trend! The top outfit I wore around cold and rainy Orlando yesterday. (See how else I wore the sweater here.) The bottom outfit is just for fun and I would love to wear with thick tights (light or dark gray) in a colder climate. (See outfit with similar skirt here.) Aztec trend: yay or nay? Which outfit is your favorite?

  1. I love both of those outfits!  I shy away from aztec prints because they seem so heavy to me, but you paired them with light colors.  It kinds of "brings them down" a bit and makes them pop at the same time.

  7. Love the first outfit with the sweater. I love how you belted it to show off your waist.  I don't really like the skirt on the bottom, it looks great on you but you are so thin, I think it would look me look bigger than I am because of the print, but that white sweater looks so comfy to bundle up in.

    1. There is a similar belt in brown on facebook. Search for Twine &Tulle Boutique & look under the ready to ship photos. It's the last one & only $20!

  9. Love this trend but I haven't been bold enough to try it myself yet...I love both of these outfits! I wish that sweater wasn't sold out :( I might have to snatch that skirt if it goes on sale though

  10. Whoops, I will add that to the post! It's from Gap about 5 years ago. My all-time favorite!

  11. I really love how you styled the aztec skirt. I have been eyeing it from Express for a while but wasn't sure how much use I'd get out of it since I only pictured wearing it on a night out on the town. I love how you styled it in a classy way that can be worn anywhere!

  12. I love this sweater! And your belt is perfect for it.  I like how it's wide around but thinner at the buckle.  All my belts are either wide the whole way around or skinny the whole way, and I don't love them for belting cardigans/sweaters.  But yours is perfect.  I'll have to keep my eye out for one like yours.

  13. I love belted cardigan sweaters! And you really did a great job with the skirt outfit. The boots add just the right amount of ruggedness.

  16. I'm drooling over the first outfit!  Gah! So cute!  As for the second one, I agree with another poster that it'd look best on skinny minnies like you.  I think I have a bit too much junk in my trunk for that one :)

  17. J, i love the first outfit! i must say the first time you wore that cardi (i follow u everyday) it didnt convince me quite much, i thought u look bigger than u actually are.

  19. Love the sweater! The skirt isn't doing it for me, but I don't dislike
    it, either. I just prefer the pattern on the top, I think. Gorgeous!

  25. Those boots with the skirt are hideous- sorry but that does NOT look fashion forward.

  27. Looks good on you but not something I would buy for myself. Like the sweater outfit better than the skirt. The skirt might be better suited for summer with sandals or maybe with sleeker boots.

  28. I just love how you've styled all of your previous and today's "Aztec" and/or "tribal" pieces;  but your second outfit (Above) with your Express Sequin-Embellished, Aztec-Print Mini-Skirt is *really,  r.e.a.l.l.y.  pretty*!!    Whenever I see a bold geometric print----(e.g., Aztec, tribal, modernistic, or otherwise)----worn against a white background, like your lovely ivory turtleneck sweater............ well, it's almost like viewing *a fine piece of art*~~(against a professionally-lighted, white background)~~in a Museum............ OR like looking at a good piece of art in a home with white walls to showcase a Personal Art Collection, you know!!

    For a dressier version, since you already----(with your ivory turtleneck sweater)----have "the white Museum BACKGROUND part" for your Aztec-print skirt............ for "the professional Museum LIGHTING part," I could also see your maybe wearing soft pearl-gray, lightweight tights;  pale gray-taupe, heeled suede Booties, (i.e., Forever 21, in your 12/20/12 post);  and shiny,  *g.e.o.m.e.t.r.i.c.*  Stella & Dot "Talia Teardrop Earrings"............ to subtly highlight your skirt's bold Aztec print, too, J.!!:
