So yes, I’m a girly girl. I have a love affair with dresses, love me some pastels and created quite the girly happy place for myself. But don’t be fooled :) As the only girl amidst a band of brothers, I’m not averse to stepping out of my girly zone. You’ll never hear me refer to myself as a tom boy (cause let’s face it, I’d be lying), but I do love a look with a dash of androgyny. Somehow, when you’re dressed comme les garçons, you feel even more aware of the feminine fire within. Those fiery red lips help, of course ;)
Fitting with the lovely days of Indian Summer we’ve had these past weeks, one last bright colored look before switching to an Autumn color palette? I got this color blocked top at a ZOOT sale a few months ago and even though I was a bit hesitant before buying it (it’s not the most flattering model ever for the feminine form..) I’m so glad I caved because it has turned out to be one of my go-to pieces these last few months. Light, comfortable and super easy to style (I feel that it’s enough of a statement on its own, and doesn’t need much to create an outfit). And what can I say: its bold brightness just lifts my mood :) Nothing beats a happy look!
Happy Days! <3 C.
