dress: COS - tights: H&M - blazer: c/o Eva Daeleman for Vila - boots: c/o Sacha - sunglasses: c/o Oasap - ear cuff: Claire's
This entire outfit and all of my jumpy pics are made of win. Don't argue with me, it's true. And I'm allowed to toot my own horn because it took some effort to put this together! I wanted to wear my BEAUTIFUL new boots (also available in a minty blue!), and because I had zero inspiration (and was in mood for a challenge), I asked my boyfriend to pick a piece for me to wear. He must have been in a good mood, because usually he crumbles in a little pile of nononoplzno when I give him a conundrum like that, but not this day! No. He immediately said "wear that one schoolgirl dress from COS with the collar". I kid you not. I don't know whether he picked this one because it was the first (only) piece that he could name and describe, or whether he was in a pervy mood (probs both), but I took that challenge like the champ I am. I messed around a bit with trying to make the combination of the dress and the boots a little more fresh and springy (good luck making black spring-appropriate), and then this beauuutiful neon trimmed blazer I had received a few days earlier caught my eye and I was like YES THIS ALL OF IT. And voila, my outfit! And then my sis worked her magic at getting loads of flattering, in focus jump shots and that's how all of this came together.
I don't know if you noticed my ear cuff, but I've recently gotten way into upper ear piercings. I was about to schedule an appointment to get pierced with my sis - until I did some research and apparently, after getting your cartilage pierced, it will hurt SO MUCH that you won't be able to sleep on that ear for MONTHS. Damn, like, I want to be able to sleep however the hell I please, ya know? I'm a very crappy sleeper as it is, so I don't want to set myself up for an even worse experience. But my infatuation with piercings didn't let up, so I started looking into ear cuffs, and then I ran into a beautiful piece at H&M, and then my sis bought a set of ear cuffs for me when Claire's was having a buy two get one free thing going on, and now my need for piercings has been sated. For a while at least.
PS: my pictures don't show off my sunglasses, but they are SO cool. Get them here for just 15€!
