Details: Forever 21 floral shorts and Marilyn Monroe tee from men's section, Zara black strappy heels, Antonio Perallon bracelet, BCBGeneration affirmation bracelet, Sole Society clutch
Like I've said before, I feel the most like myself when I'm drenched in look-at-me colors and prints. Mainly because happy hues and loud patterns provide an instant jolt of happiness, hence all the smiling in these snaps. I'm always surprised by the pieces in my closet that become go-to staples that I didn't think were when I purchased them and the "essentials" I thought I would wear forever that remain neglected in the back of my closet. Surprisingly, these floral shorts happen to be one of those trendy finds that I return to season after season for their go-with-everything possibilities. They've gotten major playtime over the years because I am constantly finding new ways to wear them (see here, here and here for some more inspiration) while playing dress up in my closet (a past time I've been fond of since I was 5). With a simple switch of a top, shoes and accessories I can easily breathe new life into an old favorite. To further satisfy my ceaseless need to surround myself with bright things, this strippy Sole Society clutch adds an unexpected touch. And throwing in a graphic shirt into the mix, whenever possible, is a super easy way to add sass to a look. Plus, how hot is Marilyn? Can you believe I stumbled upon this tee in Forever 21's men section? Serendipity!
