adventures of the wandering whippycakes: mall rat // south carolina

 top: base exchange / shorts: GAP / shoes: Blowfish Shoes / ring: Charming Charlie's
nails: OPI wiliam tell me about / whippycake: mall rat

 so i'm totally jealous of these whippycakes and their advetures. yes, the whippycakes. go ahead and call me crazy. or try to understand where i'm coming from. these whippycakes get the chance to travel - that makes this military brat's heart going pitter-patter super fast. the travel bug is constantly biting me - and what i would give to get to Hawaii or Colorado for just over $2 bucks. please, wrap me up in some tissue paper and send me off in a manilla envelope.

this time, i got the privilege to style up the Mall Rat. i adore the size and shape it, different from the one i own and the other whippycakes i've styled. doesn't it remind you of something you'd pick up from Anthro?

be sure to check out the other fab ladies and their wandering whippycakes:
Lindsay of Aisle to Aloha
Moriah of Josiah's Nest
Sandy of Sandyalamode
