What a strange word: pinafore. It's not exactly mellifluous is it? Not my favorite vocabulary word. Heh. However, the fact remains that I have been coveting these so-called apron dresses for quite awhile. :P When I saw this on sale for just $18 shipped from Tulle, I had a mind explosion. Haha. :D The material is thinner than I was expecting and the buttons don't feel all that sturdy, but it's my first pinafore! So, whatevs. Heh. It is lightweight and perfect for summer. This is actually my third time wearing it. :D
Oh and check out this totally rad vegan leather jacket from TIL Darling! You guys, the product photos really do not do this jacket justice. Which is odd, since you'd expect the photos to be super enticing. I think the contrast/brightness was turned up too high in the manufacturer's photos. When I received the jacket, it looked so perfect. It feels super soft and it is much more lightweight than it appears on the store page. It is completely appropriate for Summer/Fall/Spring. With the right layering, I could even wear this comfortably in the winter. I like the braided, knit panels on the sleeves. I wanted a jacket that looked different from your typical "leather jacket" and the unique sleeves immediately caught my eye.
I also love that the jacket has a removable panel on the front (it's not shown here, but you can see the button/zipper where it had been connected). The front flap can be folded over in two different ways for additional versatility. The multiple ways of wearing the jacket made this purchase a complete no-brainer for me. It goes with everything. I love it, love it, love it! You will see more of it! OK. I'm done. Haha. <3
I'm also sporting my grey clutch bag from Nasty Gal. I wanted this bag as soon as I saw it. It's my only clutch bag and strangely, this is my first time wearing it in about 10 months. It's really hard for me to style it. Do you think it looks weird with this outfit? I dunno. Perhaps I'm not much of a clutch bag person. Hmm. Well, I'll try to wear it more. Maybe it just requires a more girly outfit?
How cute is this bow tie, by the way? I think it's awesome! Yes, I got it from the men's section at Forever21, but I don't care! I've said this before: I will wear anything as long as it fits! ;P
Where was I headed all gussied up, you ask? Oh, just a weekend coffee date. Hehe. You can pretty much assume that in 90% of my posts, I am on my way to do something coffee or brunch related. :P~
