In Full Bloom

I didn't find much while thrifting today, but there was one standout item: this crazy flower sweater tank. I was really drawn to its quirkiness, the three-dimensionality and random asymmetry of it. If not for the manufacturer's label, I would have thought it was the original work of an eccentric knitter. Though it's sweater fabric, the holes make it breezy enough for the July heat. I paired it with my risque short shorts that only make an appearance when it's really, really hot. Because the shirt has so much going on, I kept accessories minimal. I thought the bow headband played up the whimsy of this look. Also, I got a long overdue haircut today. It's not much different, but I just love the fresh, confident feeling that follows a trip to the stylist.
