Yes, I am flanked by snow and it sucks. >_< However, in spite of this, the day was quite beautiful. The sun was bright and crisp; the sky was a clear blue; and the biting winds were nowhere to be found. Why does Gaia do this? She provides a beautiful day in December to remind us of a Spring that is far away.
On a day like this, I just couldn't resist wearing my new romper. I thought I wouldn't be able to wear it until Spring, so I was pleased to wear it before the year is out. I've had this little number for months just waiting for the right time to take it for a spin. I got it from my clothing swap group (which I'm sure you're tired of hearing by now haha, but this is where I get most of my clothing! I'm a thrifter at heart.)
The bright teal color just screams Spring, in my mind, and I loved the romper at first sight. I was utterly obsessed with it when it was on ModCloth. It was called the "Teal A Second Glance Romper" on the website and it originally came with a brown belt, but the person who gave me the romper had lost it. I was happy to receive the romper regardless of the missing belt, though. :D It's my absolute favorite!
Here's a little peek into that striped ModCloth tunic that I just can't seem to stop wearing these days. It really brightens up the open v-shaped cut at the shoulder blades and gives the overall look a Spring/Summer feel. I wasn't going to add a belt at all, originally, but then I remembered the thin floral ModCloth belt I had thrifted awhile back and I decided the burst of colors would enhance the Spring theme I was going for. Oh and speaking of things I can't stop wearing, I'm practically living in this fedora hat, you guys. I'm sorry if this annoys you! Haha. I just really love it and it goes with everything! <3 >_<
And here is the romper in all her glory. :D I included some closeups of the fabric below along with some additional shots of my accessories. I love the pleated shoulders and diagonal textured lines throughout.
Oh yeah! I'm wearing my new brown mid-calf boots from UrbanOG! Finally, finally, finally! I've wanted boots like these forever and I couldn't pass up their 20% off + free shipping promotion back in mid-November. I bought another pair of boots very similar to these, but they're a brighter shade of brown. Both boots were "Buy One, Get One Half Off," so I received an additional discount on the order.
Do I know how to shop, or do I know how to shop, eh? Haha :D UrbanOG shoes are fantastic quality. Aside from Hot Topic, I typically get my shoes from UrbanOG. Wonderful customer service, too! ^_^
