Paper Bags and Plastic Hearts

Day to Night Dressing.
Acid wash jacket: Zara
Vest: DIY
Tanktop: Topshop
Skirt: Topshop
Shoes: Wisteria Wedges from Topshop
Purse: Random from my sister
Accessories: Forever21

I wore this outfit last Friday and decided to make my life a lil' bit easier by recycling my "day" outfit and transforming it to my "night" time look by a simple change of the denim aspect of the look. It was vest earlier on for work and some errands and then I simply ditched that to an acid wash cropped jacket from Zara for a great Cibo Dinner + Movie + Drinks. I had a great night despite the psychological trauma the movie, The Rite, did to me, which has caused me a grueling 3 nights of sleeplessness. Back to the outfit, the reason for such is that I am probably the slowest person in the world and preparing an all new look would require an extra hour or two... (I admit, I am not the type of girl who can just throw on anything..I like taking my time...) so I guess this was the smartest alternative I could come up with to avoid being perpetually late..
(something I resolve to change as I turn 24 in 3 days...less tardiness and no longer being unfashionably late to almost everything...)

I decided to go pastels this time around since I think I overloaded on black on my last post. I wanted a bit more color (no matter how light hued) and as always, more variety in my look. Dressing up bipolar is refreshing! Provided this was a complete 180-degree turn from my last look, I like catching people off guard. I guess just one signature look BORES me.

Get the look:
