It's funny how your closet seems to gobble up items. You think you've nothing new to wear until you randomly see an old item in a new light. So when the rain abated this morning & I peered into my closet it wasn't accompanied by the whiney woe is me "I need new clothes" but rather "hey this might work..." It's a pretty Summery look (probably too summery for such a day, but hey a girl can dream) but I liked it & hope some of you will too!
First things first - how cute is this palm tree print? It's a piece I purchased last Summer but somehow it got lost in the depths of my closet. Now that it's resurfaced I have about 5 combinations I want to try it with. For today I was in between this navy pencil skirt & my royal blue American Apparel skirt. In the end I chose this one because it's something you haven't seen before, & also provides more contrast with the flowy printed crop top. In the accessory department I went with two pink vintage items: cute costume earrings from my grandmother, & pink belt from my Auntie. I also chose my pastel yellow satchel to compliment the pastels in the top. My nails were painted in Baby Blue by OPI, more of a leftover from yesterday than anything.
And in other news: life. is. busy. My German final exam is in less than two weeks (terrified = understatement), the job hunt is ongoing, & I'm also in the midst of making some design changes to le blog. So for the time being, just bear with me & keep the comments a-comin' :)
