OOTD: I Heart You

March 31, 2014







Bow Hair Clip: Ruby Francis | Denim shirt, Skirt, Mouse Belt: Thrifted | Juju Babe Sandals: ASOS | Purse: Kate Spade New York | Tights: Target

A sleeveless outfit! Can it be true?! I seized the opportunity and enjoyed every second of yesterday’s sunny 70 degree afternoon.

This ensemble is mostly one big souvenir of my recent Florida trip. I found the denim shirt at a resale shop Kelsea and I were browsing together and she gave me the skirt from her to-mend pile because she knew she’d never actually get around to it. I loved sharing bits of our closets when we lived together in college. Our styles aren’t completely similar, but the overlap in our spheres of taste do intersect quite a bit.

So many of my thrifted pieces remind me of Kelsea because we did so much second-hand hunting together. I definitely miss having a good friend at hand who was always down to go dig for treasure at any shady flea market we could find. Sigh!

    Omg you are adorable. This outfit is so cute, and I am jealous of the warm weather! It snowed so much where I am this weekend! I can’t wait for sleeveless weather.

      Thank you, Sammi! <3 You'll get your chance for sleeveless-ness soon! Ugh, if we were still fighting snow here I'd be cryinggg

  • Oh my word could you be any more adorable?! I am so in love with your denim shirt, which you paired perfectly with that floral skirt!

      Aww, thank you, doll! <3 Denim + floral always reminds me of the 90s and the Babysitters Club so it's definitely an A+ look. 8)

      Isn’t it amazing?! It was an estate sale find from obviously the most stylish old lady ever.

  • Superly duperly adorable! My eyes keep traveling to those shoes… *intense eye squint* …those shoes.

    I know what you mean about having a good thrifting buddy – going thrifting with my fiance just isn’t the same! (I’ve noticed that going shopping with guys is a different experience altogether… they kind of want to just get what they came for and LEAVE)

      Hahaha, yeah, it takes a certain adventurer shopping spirit to be a good thrifter! My bf doesn’t have the patience for it and is pretty weirded out by the concept of buying other people’s used things. He’s a wimp!

  • SOOOOOO CUTE! I love your little blue shoes and that adorable ice cream brooch.

    • Michelle | CreatureType.com

      Thank you, Cazz! <3 I made the ice cream brooch at an Etsy party a few years ago. I always forget to wear it!

  • Pretty outfit!! That ice cream brooch is soo cute!
