Hummingbird Girl


Sorry for going the sexy route in order to show my new tights, but I figured I show more leg when I wear shorts in the summertime or when I'm at the beach in my bikini, so it's all goooooooood. Also, this full skirt scrunched up to show a cheeky bit (ok a lot) of leg with those bow print tights reminds me a bit of Marie Antoinette a la Kiki Dunst, and that's a classy sort of sexy, right? 


Anyway, I'm in love with this dress I got at River Island as a part of my Student Ambassador deal. The hummingbirds, the color, the ful skirt, the classy take on spring colors: love it all! Of course I went for my pretty green clogsandals because you know me, more color is always better. These tights remind me of those Chanel tattoos (which were awesome), but these will probably last longer!



Cool, right? And 10 euro isn't that expensive for a temporary tattoo you use again and again, especially if it also keeps your legs warm! I find the juxtaposition of the granny vibe of nude tights and the tattoo print quite cool.

dress, tights: River Island
cardi, clogs: H&M
legs: I got them from my mama

PPS: my outfit from yesterday was reblogged by Erin of Calivintage! I am so incredibly flattered because she's like, my favorite blogger EVER. I had a major omgomgomgomg moment this morning when I checked my email!

  11. Yeah, gurl, show that leg. I love love love the dress. The print, the color, the vintage vibe. Excellent. I am also obsessed with Chanel everything, but especially their tights which are tattoo-ey sometimes. Now they just need to come out with some Chanel pasties.

  25. For a moment I thought you were wearing the Chanel tattoo! The tights are waaay better for lasting longer. Never apologize for being sexy!!! Flaunting it in a classy way is never a bad thing :-) That's so awesome that Erin gave you a shoutout! She is one of my faves too!!! You are one of my favorite bloggers for lots of reasons (not to sound creepy. sheer admiration is all) and I get so effin stoked when I get any comments from you! You are genuinely sweet and awesome and have style to match!

  27. wow, and that is all I am going to say, because there is nothing else to say. How fabulous do you look, with or without a smile. That cardigan is simple phenomenal with that dress, it is such a fashion paradox. A delicate, dress with an army green cardigan. I love this so much.

  35. Ze blijven gaaf,
    ik wilde ze ook halen voor de zomer!
    Ben alleen bang dat ik ze gelijk kapot maak o.O"
    &Ik zou dan niet gaan voor communicatiewetenschappen, maar voor communicatie en informatie wetenschappen, alleen ik hoorde dat daar nu ineens ICT aan te pas komt?
    Hm want dat zou echt niets voor mij zijn!
    Ik moet eventjes gaan bellen/mailen, want ik kan geen brochures daarover aanvragen o.O"
    Aan welke universiteit studeer je als ik vragen mag? (:
