Two Out of Three Ain't Bad

Top: Forever 21, $20 // Shorts: TJMaxx, $10 // Shoes: Plato's Closet, $8 // Sunglasses: Goodwill, $1 // Necklace: Forever 21, $5

What they say is true... I'm already having more fun thanks to my wonderful stylist (Teri at Green Room Salon). She warned me that once you go blond, you always want to be more blond. I'm already realizing the truth in that statement and will likely do something more dramatic in the future. Enough about the hair, on to the outfit! 


So, remember my confession of tipsy shopping? The package arrived a couple of days ago, and I was pretty pleased with the contents. Unfortunately, the shorts (which prompted the purchase) did not fit well. I adore shorts but have had the hardest time finding the right pair this summer! The other two items -- the roomy striped sweater and bee necklace -- were added to my cart as an afterthought, and I love them! I'm immediately won over by anything with horizontal stripes, and this laid-back number was no exception. As for the necklace, you may not know that I have an affinity for bees. I have a bee tattoo and many bee-themed possessions, so this bejeweled bug will fit right in.

So simple, yet so stylish.

That's kind of like my thing with octopus and owls. and lions. and polar bears x__x Or maybe I just love tons of animals. Animal jewelry always look awesome though. It's always hard to tell what something is so people do lots of double takes. OKAY! Rambling :P

I'd say the tipsy shopping definitely paid off! I'm glad I'm not the only one that's had a horrible time finding shorts this summer. In a fit of frustration, I cut off some of last season's denim and chinos into shorts to get through the summer.

I have the same thing with birds. That and hearts. Everyone has to have their "thing"! I love the red shoes with this outfit too. So cute!

That necklace is the perfect length for your top. I love it.

I really like the new hair color! I just recently started making the transition back to blond and it is quite addicting at times :D

Santina said...

I totally understand how you feel. I went from black to blond (hello, six hours at the salon!) and have gradually made my way to white since then. I really do feel like a different person as a blond. Your hair looks adorable!

I love this look and have found myself wearing very similar ones recently. I can't get enough horizontal stripes!

I love the bee necklace! :D Animal jewelry is my favorite kind. Personally, I have a thing for octopuses (octopi?) and owls!

Oh my goodness, I'm off to look for that necklace. I too am a bee collector. I'm actually very interested in getting a bee tattoo. Do you have pictures of yours somewhere?

Super cute necklace! Nice to see someone sporting something other than an owl.

And I can totally relate to your thoughts on dying your hair. I was 23 before I dyed it for the first time and since then it's been reddish, redder, red and now I went the opposite end of the spectrum to black. I wouldn't want to mess with blonde since this isn't the first I've heard of the "I want to be more blonde" phenomenon!

I ended up with that same bee necklace too! I ordered it in the bronz-y color but I ended up getting black. He was too cute to send back!

I was out shopping the other day and was reminded of this post. H&M currently has a gold bee pin/barrette (with cream enamel for the details) that you might like. :)
