Color Me Striped

A vintage inspired work outfit. The skirt was a vintage thrift find, so I had to wear it with my vintage scarf to complete the look. I think it turned out well. The scarf sort of adds to it as well. I would say more in this post but I am currently at work and our new manager just walked in to the building so I must cut it short. Lest I get a talking to for working while working. HAHA!

They're finally here!

My Dr Marten Victorian floral boots have arrived and I couldn't be happier! I have been wanting these for a few years now and o finally bit the bullet and got them. Aren't they gorgeous?! 
I had to do some major research before I could finally call them mine but boy, was it worth it! Here is a little peak of how I styled them so far. Oh and by the way, they come with pink satin laces too....SCORE!

A Garden Full Of Surprises


These pics were taken in parents backyard. It was a perfect sunny day and it gave me the chance to wear these shorts that I DIY'd a while ago. They were bermuda shorts and I thought that by making them shorter they would look better. I think they came out pretty good, if I do say so myself!
In regards to the colors, I was feeling sort of fall-ish so I went for the darker clothing. It's amazing how your mood correlates with choosing your clothing. Take myself for example; when I'm feeling happy, I opt for brighter colors and when I'm feeling down, I opt for darker colors. However, I usually lean more towards darker colors even though I'm not feeling down. I think it has to do with my high school rocker days, when black was the only color I would wear. Oh how I miss those care-free days when wearing a towel on your head as a turban was seen as funny and fashion forward. Yep...I did that and NO I'm not saying anything more about it!

Escape From Captivity

So these pictures, along with 3 other post pictures I have yet to post, are from the my Canon Digital Elph camera. I want to put up the last of these pictures because I will now be posting from my Canon T2i which will be better quality, as I am in the process of learning everything there is to know about it.

 I went to one of my new spots to take pictures with my T2i and it was a complete FAIL. Little old me forgot to put the SD card in my camera so I could not shoot with it, however I did have my trusty Digital Elph so I managed to snap a few pics with that one. Don't you guys ever have days when you think you are prepared and then you found out you really weren't. GRRR!!!!
So pretty much everything I am wearing in this outfit was thrifted. Except for the boots, tights, and scarf everything was. I was originally going to wear the dress without the red tee, but it was a little breezy that day and I felt like it needed a pop of color. I really like how it turned out because you can just see a bit of the red peaking out. I think that by adding the tee made the outfit a bit more girly because without it I felt it would be too edgy, which I don't have a problem with, but I just wasn't going for that kind of look. 
So I know leopard isn't really in right now, but I don't normally stay up to date with the trends, I kinda just wear what I want, when I want. If I like it, I'll wear it and that's that. I truly believe that when it comes to fashion, you just gotta go with what you feel and wear what you like because I mean, everybody has their own opinions and they won't necessarily agree with yours. So take a risk, and just wear whatever you want, whenever you want.
