One of my fondest memories from grade school at Mount Gallitzin Academy was the adorable little uniforms we got to wear. Even though as I got older and went to OLSH for high school and hated uniforms, MGA's will always hold a special place in my heart, and are honestly probably the reason why even as an adult I still just adore jumpers! Unfortunately, jumpers are seemingly extremely hard to come by so for the past four years I have unsuccessfully found one that I liked (or any at all for that matter, aside from playing with the idea of begrudgingly purchasing one from School Bells). However, while I was talking to a representative from my sponsor SheIn, I mentioned my predicament and lucky for me they actually had an adorable jumper in stock. So they sent me it along with a daring mesh detailed blouse to style for this post.
I don't know about you, but recently I've really been digging the "soft goth" or "pastel goth" trend lately. I don't know what it is about this style trend, but I've been really drawn to it since the latter half of 2016 and have just been dying to experiment with it. So to fulfill my wish, I decided to channel my inner Marina Diamandis and pair this stylish jumper with a mesh detailed blouse, black skinnies, and some sky high booties. And though most would think dressing in a monochromatic outfit would be a boring style choice, I beg to differ because there is actually a lot you can do to bring a monochromatic ensemble to life.
To give this outfit some more flare, the first thing I did was pair this jumper, black skinny jeans, and boots combo with this charming mesh detailed top. As I am sure many of you know, mesh detailing is a huge style trend this year and for good reason: mesh is an awesome way to add depth to an outfit due to the fact it adds contrast and nicely breaks up an outfit. This blouse's detailing also adds a touch of playfulness to this outfit, giving it a softer feel.
Speaking of adding depth to a monochromatic outfit, another great way to do this is by layering and picking the right accessories. As you can see, I chose to pair this jumper with this pretty mesh detailed blouse not only because I wanted to go for a pastel goth look, but because of the way this jumper and the blouse compliment each other. Due to how this jumper is cut and the way the mesh detailing is placed on the blouse makes this duo a perfect pair.
Lastly, to add the finishing touches to this fun outfit, I chose to wear my wide brimmed felt hat and my round sunnies from SheIn. I also decided to wear this gorgeous Jenny Bird Pollux pendant necklace along with my Jenny Bird Moonsong cuff. The reason I chose these accessoiries and jewelry to go with this outfit was due to their industrial and steampunk-esque feel, which I felt complimented the soft goth vibe of this outfit perfectly.
