MINT MERMAID

Floral Headdress: DIY (Tutorial coming soon)
Sweater: Thrifted, $5
Maxi Skirt: Forever 21, $10

This was the actual outfit I wore on Valentines Day! :) I made this floral headdress a while back but was having difficulty styling it properly. When Valentines Day rolled around it seemed like the perfect accessory; it gives off a romantic yet bohemian vibe. I decided to opt for an outfit of mint colors instead of the traditional red. This look reminds me a lot of a mermaid with all the sea foam tones!

It's finally break for me! I just got my wisdom teeth out on Friday morning and I'm not liking this numbing feeling, plus I can't even eat anything. I don't like ice cream, smoothies, yogurt etc. because my teeth are very sensitive to the cold and I've always had more salty taste buds. At least now that it is break for me, I'm going to start my AP English research project and I'm going to somehow find a way to incorporate fashion into that ;) I also am going to attempt to do half of my collection for the school fashion show, so I'll keep you all updated with each garment I complete. I only have 5 weeks to do all of it :( My goal is to do one long gown, two dresses (one may end up being a top and skirt), one top and shorts combo, one top and pants combo, and also one coat to go over one of the dresses. I hope I can successfully translate what I picture in my mind, into the actual garments!

Since I won't be able to take outfit photos for a few days, I'm planning on doing some interviews of other bloggers this coming week so look out for those! :) Have a great weekend!

PS: If any of you have a WhatIWear account, I would appreciate it so much if you could Wow some of my looks to help me win the competition which ends tomorrow night! <3 Here's my profile if you'd like to help me out! xx

  5. Mint colour combinations have become one of my favourites as of late and I'm loving how you eschewed tradition. It's nice that the romantic-ness if coming from the textures and silhouettes that you used instead of the colour (although I move that mint should become some traditional colour of something?) Good luck on starting your research project! I totally try to incorporate fashion into all my projects at school too haha. I can't wait to see how your garments come out (you can do it!!)...surely it will all turn out fantastical! Hope you had a lovely weekend, resting a bit xx
