Guest Post: Kate from Clumsy Fox

Hey guys! As you likely know by now, I left Mexico after nine sunny months and am now in San Francisco - talk about a drastic change! Finding an apartment and job can be a bit stressful, so I am ever so relieved to have some amazing guest posts lined up to keep you entertained over here on Style by Santina. Please give these ladies a warm welcome, and if you like what you see here, be sure to click through and check out their blogs!

Hola! I’m Kate from Clumsy Fox, and not only am I happy to be visiting here at Style by Santina, I am also thrilled that Santina will soon be living much, much closer to my home-base of Portland, Oregon. It’s also exciting to do an outfit post, which I never do over at Clumsy Fox—it’s always fun to try new things, no?

I have to start with the shoes, because I knew as soon as Santina asked me to do a quick post that I would be wearing these platform oxfords. As you are all well aware, Santina loves her sky-high heels and these are taller than my usual heel choice, but they still exude a bit of that “grandma-chic,” which I love.

Since the shoes are a nude tone, I wanted to pair them with some bright colors. I’ve been falling in love with yellow this season, and since it was actually warm and sunny (so rare for Portland, even in May!) I immediately grabbed this yellow sundress, which I recently snagged for under $20. But since yellow is still a potentially neutral color, I made sure to add a quick splash of hot pink with the belt. (I learned from the best—I’m sure you all know how Santina loves those pops of color!)

Since the strapless dress shows the tattoo on my chest, I decided to keep the accessories to a minimum; I have come to think of tattoos not only as awesome forms of art, but as permanent accessories as well—and I do love me some accessories. (I’m sure Santina will back me up on this one.)

Thanks again to Santina for having me visit—I can’t wait to see how her style changes yet again in a brand new city!

I need to do a better job of adding pops of color. I usually play it too safe! :)
