the hello kitty band-aid totally completed this look 

Coat: J.Crew (sale-no longer available) (similar style)

Tippi Sweater: J.Crew (no longer available in gray) (here in other colors) (similar here, here)

Blouse: Forever 21 (buy here)

Skirt: J.Crew (sale) (similar here

Shoes: DSW (old) (similar here, here, here)

Bag: Target 

Necklace: J.Crew (different but gorgeous options – here, here)

First, I didn’t realize how bright it was outside until I uploaded the pictures and realized how most of them turned out. And adjusting the colors perfectly …yeah…I’ll get there one day, hopefully. 

Second, this little bag from Target, which actually fits a lot – highly recommended. I got this one for my sis actually, but kindaaa regret not getting a pink one for myself (still not too late, right). Tar-jay hardly ever disappoints! True story! 

And third, have a super fabulous day!

    Love the outfits! I actually used your mint and grey post that I saw from Pinterest on my blog as an outfit inspiration. Do you ever do tutorials on how to get those awesome waves?! Love the hair!

      Thanks :)I have never done a hair tutorial (I posted a youtube video of a girl that curled her hair the same way, a while back). I use a 1.5 inch curling iron and curl away from my face. But the hair in these photos is day 3 hair and I haven't done anything too it (except dry shampoo).

    Love it, the necklace is so nice and I got it too, also the heart shirt is too cute. I hesitated on it cuz I already look so young and I thought the hearts would make me look even younger, but you made it look sofisticated. MalindaFashionthroughmyiphone82.blogspot.ca

    Okay, so you paired this with a pink coat. would it work for spring (no coat) to pair with leopard print shoes that have a bright pink toe? just pink in a different place, or is that too little of an amount of that color that it would look funny?

      Lilly said:

      No rules on how much or little color it needs to have. I think those shoes would work just fine 🙂
