oops, i might have cheated.

 cropped top: H+M / pencil skirt: target / shoes: madden girl
neon belt: forever21 / watch: fossil / bracelet: c/o Poshlocket 

i wore this outfit (minus the shoes, belt, multi-chain bracelet and little mermaid long hair - so tempted to cut it!) last spring but decided to rock it out this past sunday. i had a different cropped shirt in mind but it just didn't work out. also this neutral platforms demanded to be paired with a pencil skirt. it's the professional working outside of the home side of me coming out. 

so basically, i feel like i cheated the whole re-mixing rule that apparently fashion bloggers live by. you know the one where you don't wear the same thing over again in a post. and isn't it funny how blogging makes you apologize slash admit for things that you never would apologize slash admit in real life?

well, i'm not apologizing. not really.

much love.
{happy tuesday, friend.}

  9. you are a hoot! i like that you wore it twice and i probably wouldn't have remembered your wearing it prior. the nude heels are awesome. i have some but they are suede and have gotten dirty!!
    i love your long hair! i have been tempted to cut mine too. i want to donate it, but it has been color processed. i wonder how one goes about NOT doing color anymore and embracing natural color??

  21. I wouldn't apologize! If it worked once, why not do it again!? Right? I love the bow top and the neon belt. I think you look wonderful, and I sometimes wear the same outfit more than once too. Well, more than sometimes! Haha.
