My Attempt at Tribal Print

Doing the fashion blogger thing of avoiding eye contact with the camera, haha! 

Chambray Shirt: Marshall's
Scarf: Boscov's
Jeans: American Eagle
Booties: ShoeDazzle

As you can tell, this OOTD is very different from my usual preppy look. Today, I finally manned up, went outside my comfort zone and tried the tribal print trend! Not gonna lie, this morning I was pretty terrified to leave my apartment in this outfit! My roommates were no where to be found for feedback but I forced myself to be more daring and walked out the door. I did get a lot of compliments on the outfit, so I guess it worked!  Overall, I think I liked this outfit! 

The scarf gave the outfit a more relaxed feel, which you can probably tell is very different from my usual "look". I turned the scarf into a vest by fastening the two panels around my neck around to my back, as you can see above in picture three! I feel like there's a better way to do this somehow...any tips?

How would you wear tribal print, Darlings? 

With Love,


  1. I love those boots! THey are super adorable!

    1. Thank you! My boyfriend actually picked them out!

  2. Ooh I just picked up a new chambray shirt with a kind of southwestern/navajo print (it sounds so weird, I know, but it actually looks pretty cute!) on it but I have yet to wear it out since I have a sneaking suspicion that I might come across looking a little more hipster-ish than I would prefer.
    Hahah I guess I'll have to follow your advice and take a step (or three) outside of my comfort zone and try it out! Fingers crossed for fashionista fireworks! ;)

    1. Tribal print is definitely a trend that's outside of many comfort zones! you chambray sounds so cute! You should totally put that OOTD on your blog! One of the compliments I received was "omgosh you look so cute! you look like a hippy!" I'm not entirely sure how I feel about that yet...hahah

  3. you're working the tribal print, love it!

  4. I can't pull off tribal prints sadly. I think you rock it!

  5. You look fantastic, I have a tribal print poncho and shirt. It's definitely fun to step out of the comfort zone every now and then!

  6. I love this outfit! Looks Great! I found you through the Penniless Socialite!
