Geometric/Tribal/Aztec

I really like this pattern. I don't know exactly what I see in it but I really really like it. I think it's because I don't think I own anything even remotely like this.  (3 sentences, used "I" 7 times. Skill, baby.) Over the winter, I had a slight obsession with graphic sweaters. But it's too warm to think about sweaters now. One print that I find I still love is the geometric/tribal/aztec black and white print. I find that many different places call it different things, but it's all over the place now. 

I can find dresses, cardigans, leggings and skirts in this print. Like the dress below!

Of course, there are those thick cardigans I was first attracted to.

No surprise that there's a lot of trend combinations. Here, we see the geometric print mixed with a hi-lo hem.

Despite these summery trends, I still find myself looking at my first object of affection, cardigans. The reason why I haven't purchased any is because I think I really want a cardigan that closes with buttons. These are all drapey and open.

This one, though slightly more fitted, still doesn't have any closures.

Lastly, I've been really eyeing these dresses at H&M. One of them is the dress below and the other I can't find online, but it's made of cotton and really hugs your body. I can't decide between the two!

    1. I don't think I'd wear either one much if I purchased two dresses!

  4. Aztec prints look good on certain outfits but not on some. I love the 1st dress, the assymetrical skirt and the last draped one a lot.

  10. Tribal prints are so fun. I like all of your picks -- although I'm struggling to find a cardigan that buttons up right now, too. Why are they all open?

  13. I normally shy away from prints, but there is something about Aztec styles - maybe the fact that they work so well in black and white? - that I find really eyecatching and appealing. I love all of the pieces you picked, but especially the three cardigans. I'm a knitwer girl at heart, no matter what the weather :)

  20. Aztec or tribal seemed so interesting, but we have to choose tribal pattern which suited for us, cause smtimes it just suited so good to others.

  21. Oh the chunky tribal knits are my fav too! I also love Aztec nails :)

  22. i love buttoned cardigans :) I think I have a slight cardigan hoarding problem....hahah

    I also really like the tribal/aztec print, though I don't know if I would wear it...I like plain and simple in both color and design for clothes. But you should totally rock it! I love it!
    maybe I should try venturing out as well :)

  25. I love Aztec patterns too! They're not so crazy that they are unwearable - such a perfect balance of geometry and quirkiness. So beautiful! I love your selections!

  34. That H&M dress is a great piece - can see it being flattering and easy to throw on and wear out :) I like that chunky knit black and white cardigan too!

  35. Thanks for your comment :) The EA cream foundation isn't that great. It got super cakey after the first hour!!

    Ohh if you are looking for the love culture tribal cardigan, I got the exact same one in a a black on cream on YesStyle for I think $25... but if love culture has it for cheaper then you should definitely go for it!
