rocking the casual + a victim of the panda.

jacket: belk / tee: urban outfitters / jeans: aeropostle 
necklace: f21 / belt: f21 / boots: belk

there are some weeks that i wear dresses and tights every day, then there are weeks where i feel like rocking the jeans. and this was one of those weeks. you know what i mean?! i had those awful allergies and not in the mood to be creative. if you wear jeans, you only had the top half to worry about out. am i right? am i right? actually i really do love this cargo jacket. its uber casual yet you can add a belt or a pop of color with any tee. i've thrown it over some floral or lace making a fun contrast.

speaking of fun...

here are some pictures that i cannot stop laughing over. this is what happens to unsuspecting victims when the panda hat creeps up on them.
 
victim #1


victim #2


sooooo...if you ever visit my house, don't tell me you weren't warned. 
you could be next.

much love.
[happy thursday, friend.]
