Talon of the Hawk

This skirt is still a favorite of mine, but it's so unique that I feel like people will notice if I wear it all the time. Which is also sort of convenient for me, if I want to get crazy and fold part of the skirt and take this hi-lo skirt into a mini. I think I was slightly channeling my inner grunge with this outfit and I was totally in love with it.

Did you notice anything different around here?! Yes, yes I changed my design again. That's the problem with having slight design knowledge, you can't help but seek change. You are rarely satisfied. Though, I'm not finished with all of the elements, I am really diggin' this look. It's what I've been after for awhile, but didn't know how to translate. I'm really into the minimalistic looks right now and I think this portrays that. I hope you like it and will like it even more once I finish some elements. And if you were wondering, Joyce of Joyful Outfits designed the "outfits by season" icons. She's a real treat and talented person to work with.

  1. I was in fact wondering about the outfits by season part, it is sooo cute and the best idea ever! I love the header and the overall super clean look w/ the 2 columns. oh and this outfit is fantastic! I'd never have thought to pair baby blue w/ that skirt but it looks amazing w/ the denim jacket.

  2. Well, I liked your old design and header but I love this one too. It is very sleek and a bit- I don't know...all inclusive of your style wether it is a very grunge outfit kind of day or a very feminine dress kind of one. The "outfits by season" is also a super clever navigation idea. I'd never seen it before.

    How creative to make this skirt a mini. Never will get tired or how versatile this skirt is, especially considering how unique looking it is too!

  3. I love minimalist themes. Ever since I stumbled upon your site, I noticed your "outfit by season" icons made it very unique. So you should definitely keep them!

    That's really cool how you made the skirt into a mini, I'll definitely try to do that sometime! Thanks for the idea!

    & As far as continual change, I feel you. I'm trying to stop my continual change, but each time I learn something new, I'm like "I bet that would look good on my blog" and then I go crazy again. Never satisfied is right. There should be an intervention group for people like us.

  4. You look super super cool.
    I like your new icons. Outfits by season is such a good idea!


  5. You look awesome - I love that skirt, especially paired with the vest. And your new design looks great too : )

  6. Like I said before, I'm loving the new design. I'm such a sucker for anything clean and minimalist. I'm actually having Joyce work on a new design for me now! I'm keeping my header, but I'm so ready for everything else to change.

    This skirt always looks incredible on you. I envy your ability to look effortlessly cool all the time.

  7. I love the new deisgn, it's so nice and clean!! I love this look too, this skirt is ammmmmazing, love the pattern and it looks amazing with that denim vest. I am, of course, diggin the grunge look.
    I am so glad you've been enjoying my dress, can't wait to see how you style it ;)

  8. Such a cool outfit and I really like your blog!!

    I actually just posted about my denim vest, so it's funny I stumbled upon this post today. I'd love if you checked it out :)

  9. This outfit is fantastic! Something I would've never come up with and am jealous of! You have such a great, unique style.


  10. Oh man, I totally understand about constantly wanting to alter your blog design. I never stop tweaking mine and it's such a bad habit...or maybe good depending on how you look at it I guess. :)

    In other news, I totally dig that skirt! I've been meaning to get my own galaxy skirt/dress/top but I haven't stumbled across any yet.

  11. Such gorgeous photos, and I love the skirt! I really love the new blog design, too!! Really pretty and clean. :)

  12. I totally know what you mean with the design knowledge! In college I started out as a graphic design major so I got some decent knowledge before I switched, & now I keep wanting to find ways to use it (aka my blog). Love the new look though!!

  13. I looooooove that skirt--it is so cute as a mini! I also totally noticed your new layout and I love it!

  14. Ah this look is so full of joy! Bravo.

  15. Thanks for your kind words on my last post!
    You always look so pretty, I admire your sense of style! That skirt is just fantastic and I love the layering with the denim vest. So unexpected and cool!

    Have a great day,

  16. Yeah, that skirt is totally awesome! Love the way you styled it with the denim jacket and beret!

  17. Incredibly fantastic skirt. I love the unique print. I've wanted something in this print for awhile now.

  18. Gorgeous! I've been wondering when this outfit was going to make an appearance on your blog. I actually really like this skirt as a mini. Oh, and I love the new layout! I love it every time you change it though, your style is very much like mine. If you ever want to make a few bucks and clean up mine let me know ;)

    P.S. My new backyard looks like desert (you'll see it soon on the blog). Until we get some grass in there I'll probably use the park across the street lol.

  19. I freaking love this skirt!! And how you matched it, I never know how to match those kinds of prints with anything other than black >.<

  20. love your skirt! i have the same (or a really similar one) but not in high-low style just in regular above the knee length and i love it! it's definitely something i think people will notice if i wear it all the time too so i don’t wear it a lot but it's still one of my favourite skirts!

  21. I loooove this outfit! So super cool! <3 I'm especially love the denim vest.

    You're just too cute!

  22. I wish I knew how to do this! I really don't like my blog design, but I dont know how to design another, and the hundreds a pro costs are not so easy to come by. :(
    I think I should start doing more reading on this kind of design work because I would love to get a sleek design like yours. Any tips on where to start?

    Also - I have a galaxy print dress and I wear it to death. I love yours (and all the Flock Together styling). I don't think you can have too many galaxy print things!

  23. I love your galaxy skirt so much. The grunge-inspired look is so great with it! I really like the layering going on in this outfit too! You look so cool!
