All Tied Up

August 15

Last weekend was quite lazy. I did a little bit of shopping for my room, as I'm trying to update it and make it a bit more "mature," but that's really about it. I've had a lot on my mind lately, so part of me would have preferred being super busy and having a bunch of distractions from my thoughts, but relaxation isn't exactly a bad thing when you're stressed. Anyway, I've been wanting to try out the tied up sleeveless button down thing for a while, and even more so after seeing Kallie wear it so well. Unfortunately, I never got around to buying a shirt like that this summer. After a bit of thinking, though, I realized I could wear my beloved denim vest as a blouse, and voila! Let me tell you, that denim vest is quickly becoming the MVP of my wardrobe. To think I wanted to buy a cheaper one because I thought I'd hardly wear it!

Vest: Goodwill, Skirt: Forever 21, Sandals: Dr. Scholl's/Mom's

  5. All my blouses have been getting the tie-front treatment this summer! The denim vest looks great that way, and it's funny what we think we will or won't wear!

  6. Such a great idea! I'm horrible at repurposing items. The colors have me thinking fall... but I will probably have to wait until late October/early November for that. Also, your hair color is looking lighter and I love how red it is!
