Style blogger Britney Nason (a.k.a. Disarming Darling) shows us how to wear a faded denim shirt with her colorful “space dress.” Britney is a vintage clothing lover, so although her clothes are mostly new, she still manages to make everything look less commercial—like a very successful thrift shop expedition worn in her fun and effortless way. The look is a bit unexpected and an interesting departure from the usual double denim or color-block pairings we’ve seen on street style blogs. We love that the explosions of colors done up in this crab nebula-designed space dress don’t seem too… spacey.

This street stype shoot from LA blogger Britney (AKA Disarming Darling) had us at first glance, with the graciously applied metallic & turquoise jewelry, light-wash denim cut-off shorts, simple knit top, and perfect boho carry-on. Shoes are key—Britney’s shoes are a unique chunky heeled sandal with major sole traction, and anything chunky works well. Avoid strappy thin-looking sandals (you’ll end up looking costume-y).
