I was this close to not having anything to wear today, y'all.  The better half of my wardrobe is out of commission as it's in the laundry pile and the other half that's left is a mish-mash of odds and ends that didn't make the first cut.  I ended up throwing on this orange top that I bought back in my early days of college (which was over 10 years ago!  anyone wanna guess my age?  lol).  Whoever says Forever 21 clothes fall apart easily has yet to meet this shirt.  It's basically like a little sister to me now.  I kinda half ignore it most of the time and don't give it the attention it deserves, but it always saves me in an emergency.  Does this mean I'm not an only child anymore?  :)

haha, I would bet that you're about the same age as me! Luckily we both look good ;)

I totally agree re: F21 though! I think many times, as long as you treat it well, it'll last.

Mindy said... [Reply]

That jacket looks so good. I love seeing you and Angga style it differently. The necklace is really cute too.

Love your outfit and the jacket looks great! However, I never heard of eco-friendly felt bib necklaces (interesting) =)

Also, it funny how old clothes are life savers during the laundry pile crisis!

Once again looking fabulous as usual =)

Wow,I LOVE your necklace!! At first I thought it was part of your shirt. I am a fan of forever 21, and haven't had any issues with their clothes falling apart. This may be one of my favorite looks of yours! :)

You look so fantastic in those jeans! That bright orange looks great on you too (although it looks red on my computer). I adore that jacket and the necklace is AWESOME!

That outfit looks great on you! Love the shoes, can't wait until it is warm enough here in London to wear shoes like that again and not boots everyday. Although I love my boots.

kileen said... [Reply]

@Banhannas They're supposed to be cropped jeans, but they're full-length on me and the 26" inseam is perfect! :)
