Second time this week that my outfit plans were foiled. This time an essential button off these wicked Marni cropped khakis was missing... I'll fix it today. I really need to be more on top of my mending. Maybe I should institute Mending Mondays until the pile of clothes to be altered goes down to a reasonable height.

I've worn all these pieces before on the blog, but just a bit differently. I say more often that a particular outfit 'isn't me' and I don't think this is 'me' but who cares, what is 'my style' exactly anyways? As long as I'm having fun and no one's eyes are getting hurt... I think the biggest problem with this outfit is the pinkness of the skirt. I do like pink but I wore it sooo much in second year university (long time ago) that I'm still on a bit of a pink hangover. I had my favourite Roots pink and white Puma-esque runners, my big-a$$ pink pleather purse and this pink hoody jacket thing that I wore all the time. Once the low-lights in my hair turned out kinda deep purple/pink and I was the matching queen. I cringe a little now, I need to find pictures so you too, can join in the cringe fest...

Well, it's Friday!!! Enjoy your weekend! Hopefully, this thing called summer weather comes along soon! xo

I love this outfit -- the combination of leopard print and floral is fantastic. You pulled it off brilliantly!

Can I ask how you secured the braids in your hair? It looks so effortless, but what's the secret?

Kirwin-the secret is damaging your hair...haha. My hair is...um...slightly chemically damaged from taking it from very dark back to blonde so I don't comb my hair and the bobby pins just stick in and stay.

Hey if I wear something, then it's ME. If only for that day;) I love how you have an animal print mixed with florals. Bold move and a great one at that!
