Just kidding, but this skirt really makes me feel like I am! The orange hibiscus and blue palm leaves have such good contrast here. I’ve always liked cobalt blue for clothing highlights (as you’ve seen in previous posts). I also think that coral and cobalt blue make a wonderful pairing – a pastel and bold together to stay feminine and turn heads.
My hopes for this blog are: 1) To curate my wardrobe a bit more now that I’m not in college anymore!, 2) To be more aware of how I present myself, and 3) To have fun and meet other fashion & floral aficionados.
Something I’m hoping to do more is thrift shop. I found this skirt at a Buffalo Exchange when I was visiting Chicago. I used to think that I wanted to mimic a certain style, but in high school or college, I’d end up finding the same pieces as my friend whenever I bought clothes from H&M or Forever 21! There’s nothing wrong with those places – but it’s definitely hard to stand out in fashion if you’re always following the trend. Whenever I thrift shop, I’m able to find pieces and restyle them or mix and match, and I know it’s harder to be duplicated.
Thanks for reading!
