I both love and hate taking these outfit posts. I love it because well, I’m a girl and I love taking pictures, but I hate it because lets face it, I’m not a model and they don’t quite turn out the way the pictures look in Vouge. But, alas, I’ve started to be a little more comfortable standing infront of my tripod posing for self timer (as long as there is no one else around!)
So here, today, I’m loving this dress I picked up for $24.99 (gosh H & M rules) and this scarf I just found at a Sample Sale while I was doing a pull at the California Market Center downtown LA for $15. My original thought was MOM + EARLY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING, but it really grew on my and went with my outfit, so I think I mayÂ have to keep it.Â I like the way bronze and golds go with blonde hair, and I’m also digging the contrast against the bright pink.
The dress is yes, hot pink. I don’t have one other thing this color in my wardrobe but after always buying nuetrals, I realized it’s nice to haveÂ a little pop every once an a while. I’ve been inspired by the runway’s bold bright colors for the season!
My shoes are crazy enough, Doc Martins!Â Is this company still around? I haven’t bought the workman boots yet, that are everywhere, so these work now and again to achieve the look.Â I found a pair of black flat boots with a wide cuff at H & M for $49.99, which I’ll probably go back for soon.
I also bought some cute nude booties from H & M that I’ll wear to dress this up. The leather is not the greatest, but people for $24.95, it was fine with me!
