Pink and Mint

Forever 21 polka dot sweater // Romwe sheer dot shirt (sold out but available in navy) thanks to Ocrun // Mint skirt c/o Rire // Givenchy pearl bracelet from giveaway // xoxo watch (Macy's) // Pierre Dumas snakeskin heels

With the huge pastel trend in spring, I couldn't believe how lacking I was in mint pieces! Thank goodness I found this skirt at Rire. It's a gorgeous shade of mint, and I love the airy feel! At first I was afraid that mint might only be good for the warmer months, but this skirt also looks great for fall/winter when paired with tights and a moto jacket. :) Also, I love mixing large polka dot prints with smaller ones. And how cute are the bows on the back of the sweater! This sweater was actually from the Forever 21 kids section. I really like getting clothes from kid sections because it's more affordable and so, so cute!

Metallic Blue

Metallic blue dress c/o Sugarlips // American Eagle Outfitters wool hat, thin rings // Oasap studded cuff // Vintage snakeskin belt, rings, cross necklace // Lulu's studded shoes

Wow I've been super busy lately! I had the SAT last week, and the PSAT is next week, so sorry for any lag in posts. And I've been talking about it for forever, but I've finally gotten around to posting with one of my new shoes! I've been so in love with pointy toe shoes (my other new shoe is also pointy toed... I couldn't resist!), and studded, too? Yes, please! Also, I love dresses with some structure or shape to them, so I was super excited when I saw this dress at Sugarlips. The print and color are really unique and great for winter. I also love how it's versatile because you can dress it up with a blazer or down with a sweatshirt. Did I ever mention how I love mixing super formal with super causal? Definitely one of my favorite combos!

A Bike Ride Through the Park

Lace floral top c/o Oasap // Urban Outfitters denim shorts // Target braided sandals and bike

Yesterday was one of those do-nothing-and-play-around kind of days, so I went biking with the familiy. :) It was actually really hot, and I wished that there was an ice cream stand at the park. Well... I'm pretty much always wishing for ice cream! But luckily this top has a lot of breath-ability, so I wasn't too hot. :) And it's not quite noticeable in these photos, but the sleeves have small flares at the bottom creating a mini bell sleeve effect. I absolutely love bell sleeves and really want to get a top or dress with bell sleeves for next summer! Also, I've been wanting to do a bike post for so long now! I bike to school everyday, so it's a wonder I didn't get to it earlier! Truthfully, most days I actually bike in heels. Haha, I used to get a lot of weird stares whenever I biked past, but now they're kind of used to it. :) Unfortunately I didn't get to show the new shoes I mentioned in the last post, but I'll definitely try to wear one in the next outfit post!

xoxo, Elly
