preppy lady

 Top, skirt & bag - thrifted, Rubi shoes, Forever New belt, Target pearl headband, Oasap earrings

A (nearly!) entirely thrifted outfit! Woohoo! I picked up this skirt and bag before work on Tuesday... I had half an hour to kill so I thought - What better time to thrift? This top was something I purchased a while ago but lately it's been sitting in my closet quite sad and lonely. Besides the obvious (uh, pink), I bought it because I thought it had potential, but when I got home I realised how incredibly hard it was to style. It has a gathered hem and the shape of it is basically a square and makes me look like I'm wearing a potato sack THEN this skirt came into my life and was the perfect match! It cinches the whole look in together and goes wonderfully with the top. Don't you just love that? Oh, and did I mention that the it was a measly $2?

Things have been pretty busy lately, this week was the first back after two weeks of holidays and, to be honest, I'm already over it! I am pretty excited though because my History teacher was telling me about the trips we'll be taking in Senior. One of them is a weekend adventure to Sydney and the other will happen later on -- in EUROPE. I'm so excited...
I hope you guys are all having an awesome week!
P.S: Sorry about the dodgy quality of these pictures... I am so ready for a new camera!

I don't know if anyone has ever told you but everything about your blog, your layout, your pictures, your outfits, even the types of things you take pictures of and even your poses remind me of Bonnie from Flashes of style :O maybe it's just me...

Maria said...
