skirt - thrifted
tights - c/o Romwe

I am ridiculously obsessed with this shirt. I've been pairing it with everything. The bow just kills me, I love it. I wish I could find one in every color. But I guess other patterns will do - aaaand I found a few yesterday! I'm really excited to be branching into shirt and skirt combos. I've got a fabulous little growing collection of them both.

Also is it just me or does the photo of me in the tree look like I'm awkwardly photoshopped into the picture? I swear I'm actually in the tree! This happens a lot though, where I'll think something looks like I photoshopped into the picture but in reality I haven't even touched it.

I'll end this with an epic jumping picture! ;)

  15. are you going to tell us what brand of polish is on your nails? they look great! i dig the whole outfit. great texture with the blouse, tights, & shoes. i wonder if that tree was difficult to climb. freeze frame jump shot.

  16. You look chic, I love your nails

  17. I think it's because you look so "cool and collected" standing in the tree! If that was me, I'd be so awkward for the fear of falling backwards! It looks like you and the tree are pals and he's just propping you up! (strange... But it made sense to me!) x

  18. It probably looks that way because of the colour...your brightly coloured (well not necessarily this particular outfit - but your hair...always!) and then the background is never quite as bright. It makes sense.

    I love this outfit...you totally look like you could be heading to a corporate office, hehe :)

    Also I tried the triangle on the nail thing and I LOVE it!!

  22. I love the top- I get so excited to find tie blouses like that! I've been building up my top/skirt collection too, after years of mostly buying dresses. It's fun to be able to mix and match a little more & your shoes are awesome :) Hope you're having a great week!

  23. Aw stop it you're too cute! I hate it when that happens with a photo. And it's even worst when someone comments on your photoshop mistake ... and you didn't even use photoshop!

    Anyways, I love how your nails match the pattern in your skirt. That's so awesome to have even your nails compliment your outfit!
