I love playing with colors. I like to mix saturated with pastel, and I love to put together color combinations that border on clashing. When I received this minty green dress from Hannah of The Braided Bandit, I knew I wanted to spice it up with some punchy footwear and a dark lip for some contrast.
I'm really thankful for this opportunity to swap clothing with some of my fellow bloggers. For instance, this dress is one from Shabby Apple that I had seen and swooned over months ago. Obviously, the dress was way out of my price range, but I still admired it from afar. When Hannah offered up the dress to swap it was so fun to get the opportunity to style it! As it turns out, the fit wasn't right on me anyhow, so it was a nice way to try it without having to shell out extra money on something that didn't fit properly.
OKAY so I know that I promised hair tutorials a while ago, but I think my computer ate them, so hopefully by next week I'll have time to create a couple more tutorials, in case you're interested. I have a bit more time now that school is out for a while. I just have to get my lazy self motivated to do some things!
I'm never good at explaining my style to others. I'm not really sure how to describe what I like to wear, but looking at this ensemble I think I'd call it 'quirky vintage'. I love to add silhouettes from different decades with items in offbeat colors, like these oxfords.I like to mix mature and younger styles, like a sweater vest with a big hair bow. My outfits are like a collage of everything I love, except I wear my collage instead of gluing it onto paper and throwing it in a box to look at later.
I hope you're having a lovely week! The sun has been hiding from us here, but I'm not complaining about that. It can stay cool and dreary forever in my book :)
...to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
