Bright Sunshine-y Day...

I wore this outfit way back on Tuesday of this week, but I've been a bad blogger and I'm only just getting around to posting.


Top: Charlotte Russe
Pants: Marshalls
Shoes: Aeropostale
Earrings: Claire's
Cami: Kohl's
Bracelet: thrifted?
Flower: H&M

I have this same top in 4 different colors, and it is one of the few items I can still wear, despite my vast fluctuation in weight over these past few years. I went through a brief period where I thought it didn't work for my now-larger body frame, but seeing it in this photo, I think it's quite flattering!
I love the dusty rose and ruffles paired with the slightly punk-rocker vibe of the stripes on the flower. I really look forward to finding outfits to wear this flower with!
Hopefully it doesn't come across too much in the photo, but my hair was actually pretty dirty this day. I usually only wash my hair every other day (or maybe every third day, if it is behaving well), and it really needed to be washed but I just didn't have the time. To camouflage this, I decided to try out Hillary's french braid style (which I had filed into my brain and wanted to try now for a while anyway) -- despite having short hair, I actually have quite a bit of length in the front, and I love finding new ways to style my hair, since I easily get bored with the same look every day. It's been a very long time since I have french-braided my own hair, so I'm really rusty and the braid wasn't as clean as I would have liked, but generally I really liked the style and look forwarded to trying it out on cleaner hair after a little more self-braiding practice.


  1. This top is beautiful!! I love the addition of the flower is great too!

  2. I love everything about the top from the color, to the ruffles, to the wrap styling. The dusty rose is a good color for you. Wrap-styled tops and dresses are my best friends because it can always be layered for added coverage.

  3. I think a lot of people think they don't have enough hair but you don't need much!
    I third lovely top.
    I saw this girl. with a flower braided into the side of her head like flower shape I wish i'd ask to take a picture it was so amazing

  4. Oh yeah, that top fits you WONDERFULLY. That was what I noticed even before I read your comments. Very pretty.

  5. I really love this top. And the addition of the flower makes it special and quite trendy.

  6. That is a great top and definitely very flattering on you!!
