pins and needles


H&M skirt, UO top, Aldo heels and necklace, Michael Kors watch, gifted jewelry.

I've never fancied the summer months as much as the others, simply because my closet isn't prone to temperatures that sky rocket and make layering impossible. Nonetheless, this shirt is one of those little gems that makes me realize that hot weather isn't always necessarily terrible (although I could easily wear this shirt all year). Besides the pattern of safety pins, thread and needles that attracted me to the shirt, the collar and the back detailing is simply the icing on the cake.

The main perk of summer is that the flowers match my clothes. Look at my mothers beautiful roses!

Amanda said...

I agree, i rather hate trying to dress in summer weather because it just doesn't suit my aesthetics of dark and lots of layers, haha. The skirt is lovely though!
