what I wore : tiny bunnies + polka dots

Thursday, April 25, 2013

details
shirt - Forever 21
brooch - Sugar Cookie
ring - c/o August Wrinkle
skirt - thrifted
tights - JC Penney
shoes - BAIT Footwear

I really try not to be swayed to not wear an outfit based on the fact it doesn't match my hair. I guess that's the one thing I'll agree "comes with the territory", sometimes my hair color just doesn't look so hot with an outfit I want to wear. But when I pick out an outfit I really like with my hair color it's one of the best things ever. This is one of those cases. I suppose all colors look okay with black but this color I'm rocking now looks so excellent with black, especially with this shirt! I wish I could find an outfit that felt this great with every hair color I try out.

Well, I'm back to work. Today is painting day round two in my office. Yesterday was quite the adventure but I'll share more about that when I finally finish up this little project and blog about it. Cross your fingers everything goes a bit more smoothly for me today.
xoxo

  10. Sometimes I wish I was taller so I could wear pretty, long skirts like that. Being 5'0" doesn't work well with long skirts. You pull it off beautifully, though!
