SLIDER

OOTD // Crank That


Outfit Details:   Sweater: vintage   Shorts: c/o OASAP   Belt: thrifted   Necklace: antique + diy   Boots: thrifted

Okay, so a little more picture heavy than usual, but its only because I love this outfit so much!
Ha, I don't know what's going on with my style, but I'm not questioning it. That's the wonderful thing about fashion. You can play around and dress up however you like and experiment.




And I'm loving how this experiment turned out. Sorry if it's a little repetitious from the last post (er, same sweater and boots...haha), but hey, think of it as a remix! So I took my shimmery gold sweater and paired it with my favorite lace shorts from OASAP. Result? Sexy and edgy. Then I tried that "tuck-a-portion-of-your-top-into-your-bottoms" trend. Haha, added a studded belt and it was perfect.


I really love these sunglasses. I wear them a lot in the summer! 
When I picked them up at a garage sale, I didn't think that much about it. I mean, they were only 15 cents! 
However, when I got home, I became curious and Googled the name that was imprinted on the inside of the sunglasses.

Turns out Laura Biagiotti sunglasses are up in the $100's

Umm...wow. Major score! Haha, so don't overlook garage sales.




I spent the entire day out at Jesse's farm working. Seriously, got up at 6, actually started working at 9, didn't quit till 6, and then we spent two more hours just hanging out. So super long day, although it was still fun since I got to hang out with my best buddy. We got to race around on ATV's when we were done, so I forgive him for being a workaholic. Plus, I'm getting paid for it this time! Haha, that always helps. I'm already plotting what I could get from online stores (Helllooooo Romwe!)


Like where I took these photos? These were taken yesterday, in case you're wondering why I would've worn this to the farm to work. Haha, I decided I'd take advantage of our garage since mom had the car. I never thought to try photos out there, but the garage door makes a perfect white backdrop! With my dad's go-karts and mechanical tools lying around, I also thought it'd make a great theme for this edgy outfit. And, with the windows open, the lighting was pretty good.


Oh yes, I'm just too lazy to lace up my boots all the time. Haha, I kind of like the undone look it has, actually. Any opinions?



And here's a little preview of a post to come ;)

hahah! Dang, do you ever sleep?! I just posted that lol :) You're always one of the first to comment! :)

I think you get insane deals too.... hello! Look at those glasses! I really like that rose skirt, it seemed kinda popular in the fall/winter but I didn't wanna shell out the $40-60 for it.

Cute outfit, I think I like this one more than the other! It looks so cool! I love the tucked in w/ the belt!

And so happy you're getting paid for your work this time!!! dang! And yeah, I was like "NO WAY she is working on a farm dressed like that!!!!" then I read your next bit and felt so dumb lol! :)

Love the laces undone! Sometimes I'll tie the laces loosely around the back or I will just not the ends close to the hole so they don't slip back through. Super cute shorts!
