BUTTERFLIES & HURRICANES



 
H&M Beanie, Denim Vest c/o Romwe, DIY Tie Dye Woven Shirt (Tutorial here), Forever 21 Denim Shorts, H&M Sneakers


I'm so glad I dug this top out of my closet again! It started out as a simple white, long sleeve top, but I tie-dyed it and followed the video tutorial (link above) I found on Youtube, and the end result was incredible. The netting looks complicated but it is very easy to do! Plus it looks like spider webs :3

I wanted to wear something that was a bit grungy but wasn't necessarily built around a dark color palette. I didn't want to overpower the pastel tones in the top so I went with a light wash denim vest and shorts, and the acid wash of the denim pieces also helped to add a more rugged feel. And to add the much needed pop of color (and I always need some type of hat), I chose my mustard beanie and orange cross necklace to compliment.

I had a very nice first week of senior year! It is very manageable now that I don't have APUSH ;) I get out of school before noon every other day so I can take naps which helps keep my level of alertness up. Today, I came home to find that the customized laptop case I made from Snupped finally arrived!!! I'll be dedicating an upcoming outfit post to it but for now, here is a small preview of one side of it (the other side has the Avengers "A" logo). There will be higher-res pictures in the post but I must say that the quality of printing is SO SHARP and vibrant. Very impressed :) For now, if you want to make your own case, you can check the website out here!

And last but not least, I was going to wait to tell you guys but I can't keep it inside because I'm way too excited about it. But I was recently contacted about styling an exclusive Jeffrey Campbell x Wasteland shoe! I LOVE WASTELAND so this is one of the best collaborations that could ever come my way! I'm truly so thankful for all your guys' support and comments!
