Embellished Collars and a Clothing Thief









Embellished collar blouse: Forever 21 (similar here)  |  Crochet cardigan: Victoria's Secret (similar here)  |  Gray pencil skirt: Forever 21 (similar here)  |  Gold strapped sandal heels: JustFab (similar here and here)  |  Gold watch: Kate Spade


What do you do with your hair on the third day after curling it with a very small curling iron?
Brush it? Not happening.
Wash it? That's what dry shampoo is for.
Scrunch it up and pin the heck out of it? Yes. Most certainly, yes.

In my family, I have one sibling. She's my younger sister and I love her to death, but... she's a dirty, rotten clothing thief.

Jk. That's a little harsh and not entirely true. She is a clothing borrower and never-returner. When I was pregnant with Lily, she took advantage of the fact that I couldn't fit my clothes and asked to borrow a lot of them. Given my pregnancy brain, I thought it would be a great idea to let her wear some until after the baby came. Well, Lily is four-and-a-half months old and those precious items are no where to be seen. The embellished blouse I'm wearing here was one of the only things recovered. Because my sister made the mistake of wearing it to my house. She left in only her tank top and jeans.

Pretty sure I'm going to have to go on a covert mission to her apartment to recover the rest of my belongings. If the next outfit I post is an all black one, you'll know why.

  5. Haha sisters. Love them as we might they can and will steal our clothing. (; Fortunately my sister and I have evolved into very different tastes, so this happens much less. I love your curly bun! Always looking for ways to wear my hair so I can go another day without washing it. (;

    1. Haha seriously. My sister has fairly broad tastes in clothes so she'll wear almost anything. Which isn't so great for my wardrobe haha.
