hipness... part 13

sooo i got a little crazy with the neons...


and then went a little crazy in the head. don't you judge me!


i also changed shoes halfway through taking the pictures...


scarf- anthropologie
shirt- ebay
belt- thrifted
skirt- uniqlo
leggings- f21
boots- frye engineer

i knew off the bat that i wanted to wear this bright orange scarf with the purple skirt. but when i opened my drawer, this yellow shirt just seemed to fly out at me! as soon as i put it on, i knew i had a winner.

something about these colors together made me SO HAPPY. i can't explain it! i felt like a little kid again, putting together cri-zayzie color combos and not giving a f*ck. it's like i was going back to my roots.

i was a fashionable little girl, you know. my favorite colors were neon green and neon pink... together. i luuurrved to wear shiny spandex and bracelets all up and down my arms like madonna. pretty daring for a 10-year-old in a sea of prepsters.

yes, i was always a little... different...


why sir, i do declare!!


it just goes to show how an outfit really can make a difference in confidence! i feel like in so many of my pictures, i look glum. not because i AM glum. not because i don't like what i'm wearing. i don't know why. this particular ensemble just made me feel like a ray of sunshine and it shows!

  5. Very bright colors here, love how you were bold enough to use purple and orange without dipping into a different era. So classy and I like the boots with the outfit better.
