Carbon copy


This outfit is practically identical to one I wore back in September, except my bangs look better now and I'm wearing different jewelry. These earrings were a gift from my mom last weekend. They're crazy and awesome and exactly what my jewelry collection was missing. I suspect that people really enjoy giving me gifts, because I always react so enthusiastically - gasping, wide eyes, exclamations of "This is awesome!" Getting these earrings was no different - I'm pretty sure I looked like a kid on Christmas morning when I was opening the package they were in.

I've been trying to get more comfortable wearing outfits that don't define my waist. Just because a defined waist is flattering on me doesn't mean it should be the only style I wear. It looks odd to not see a belt cinched at my waist in this photo, but I don't hate it, and I know it's good for me to step outside of my sartorial comfort zone.

  1. I'm always pushing for waist definition as well, but I agree that you should also be comfortable pulling off any silhouette.

  4. Love the pink and blue! I'm wearing tights that colour of blue actually heh. You look amazing, even without a belt at your waist :p I think earrings that long would drive me nuts every time I leaned over.
