Inspired by Menswear

31 March 2011















Well it is safe to say that I have completely broken my fear of
experimenting with color! Not only have I worn shades of pink in
several of my last posts, but I have dipped my toes in a completely
new pool by wearing this shade of emerald green! Quite the break
through, I must say. Please excuse me if I sound very odd... I am
very sleep deprived and in much need of the weekend to come!
Just one more day Bonnie... one more!

I hope everyone is having a lovely week, and yay that it is almost
Friday! Stay tuned, because in the next week I will be having a
couple giveaways. Yippee!



wearing: thrifted top; f21 shorts; bag via ebay; Urban Renewal bow tie; Topshop brogues
