I seem to be drawn to Mexican/Spanish/Dia de los Muertos type of things lately. Okey that specific inspiration probably doesn't translate in my outfit all that often, but today is the day I prove my love! I am madly in love with this entire look. In fact, I have been hyping it on twitter by tweeting this is one of my best outfits of ALL TIME. I'm not taking that back, I stand by my words. I hope you like it as much as I do! And yes, I did something crazy with my hair again. Anyway, less talk more pics!
Told you it was awesome! Or am I tooting my own horn too much? :-D Can't help it! I'm in love with the colors, the prints, my hair and the exotic, retro inspiration. I bought this skirt at T2 for 2 euro so I obviously wanted to style it. I grabbed this blouse and went with red accents from there, with the clogs and the hairpins! The sunglasses were the perfect finishing touch because they added yet ANOTHER PRINT (the more the merrier) and because they added funk to the ensemble. The flowers in my hair are flower appliqué's from a H&M headband I took apart and pinned in my hair to create this flowery abundance. Almost reminds me of one of those old time swimming caps :)
(Totally want one of those btw). As you can see, I'm wearing my hair in a center parting! I haven't done so since I was about 16 years old and I still have to get used to it because it makes me feel like a dork, but I'm just loving all the different things I've been trying out with my hair since it's gotten longer so I'm keeping it for now. My hair looks completely crazy, but in an awesome way, right? I just folded it in and bobby-pinned it into place. It started falling apart after a few minutes but it still looked kind of awesome. And my outfit reminds me of Frida Kahlo, and Frida is awesome. I don't want no "but she had a moustache, ew!" comments on this post OKEY PEOPLE?
Stunning and inspiring, both aesthetically and intellectually. The prints, fabrics, colors and authenticity speak to me. Are you inspired yet?
