Hi there! 

While on holiday vacation in San Antonio, TX with Francisco's family we went for a night walk on the river walk to see the Christmas lights, and it was a fun background to shoot this look. 

In the look above I styled a black mesh long t-shirt with stars on it from Forever 21 with a black tank underneath, and a vintage red pleated leather mini skirt, black tights, and my oldie but goodie Vince Camuto black biker boots with gold buckles. I topped off the look with my Valentino rock stud bag.

The star trend is such a fun look to wear on any item of clothing, and can have an all American feel. I went a little more edgy and playful in the mesh top with a pop of red leather in my skirt and black accessories. I also love it worn preppier or all American like on a pair of cowboy boots! Free People has an ankle bootie with stars on it in different colors that I'm lusting after right now!

I hope everyone is enjoying the snowy weather:)
