Pink Galaxy

Blouse: c/o ZLZ   Skirt: Sears   Sandals: c/o My Hot Shoes   Necklace: c/o Too Sexy Store   

This skirt hasn't been worn in forever, and I don't know why! When this ZLZ blouse arrived, I knew I had to go with the girly theme but edge it up a bit. Nothing like a spike necklace and some galaxy print to do that, right? I still felt like myself, despite the more feminine colors and feel.

So more on this blouse - I love when simple tops have a little extra detail to them. The crochet cut outs in the shoulder and back are such lovely touches! I adore the light chiffon material too, it makes it perfect for summer despite the long sleeves. The dress I received from ZLZ might've been a tad too tight, but I'm pleased with this top. It fits loosely and has a high low hem that will be fun to play with in more outfits.

Now last week, there was another Senate meeting. We've only had one a month during the summer, so this was the second one, and we made quick progress in settling the school's budget for next semester. I must say, having a say with such a large amount of money, and having several groups present to us, it was amazing to realize how influential being a part of the school's governement is. I'm looking forward to working more with the other senators, I have a feeling we'll do good. It'll be a learning experience, that's for sure! Plus, we all received our iPads for the year - definitely a nice perk to being part of Senate! :)

Problem is, they'll more than likely get me addicted to my iPad and when I have to return it, I'll have to go out and buy myself one...

PS: To clear up some confusion, here's a post that clarifies why I believe even if it's just Google Reader shutting down in July, GFC will be following right behind it. Read up on it here and don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin!

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

I suppose it's a really hard job to be a part of the school's government, you can be proud of yourself for sure! Coming back to the outfit, I must say it's so pretty and classy! Those sandals are lovely!
Have a fabulous time!

Best wishes, Alexandra

Oh, WOW, senator. Head-to-toe gorgeous. That sheer top is exciting and, well WOW, you are making me repeat myself :) And what great colors mixing in the skirt. And you do just have the very cutest legs (great last shot to be sure but your smile in the 4th one makes it my fave.) Nice pop of gold on the ankles too. Did I happen to say WOW? So lovely!

Carmen Avram said...

Sam said...

Hi Linda, you are truly a trendsetter, love the shirt, its so pretty and feminine and the skirt is adorable. Thats so great to be a part of the senate and involved in the running of things. I am certain you will make a huge difference for the better. And Yay for the use of an iPad too!

Lovely blouse...lace + blush = girly fun :)

New Post up...

Elana said...

I love, love, love that you took such a pretty top and paired it was spikes and a galaxy print skirt. It's the Linda way to do things! haha really, this skirt is beyond awesome. You definitely need to wear it more.

And you get iPads? That's really awesome. Although I can definitely see how hard that's gonna be to get used to using it and then have to give it back. I feel like you and I are always talking about our "first world problems" together aren't we? haha

Lily said...

Lindaaa! Thanks for your sweet comment on my last post--don't feel sheepish girl, you're working so hard now too! Being a senator sounds pretty cool and it sounds like your genuinely dedicated to makeing your school better. Keep it up! Yay for the ipads too (:

By the way, you are the princess of edgy-chic. Who would've ever thought a galaxy print skirt would look good with a dust pink top with lace? That top is really darling and I love those stylish shoes!

Rebecca Harasym said...

What a great skirt! I love the crochet details! The skirt is just such a perfect fit with the outfit!


Steffi Santa said...

What a lovely skirt!! And you paired it with pink top. Just amazing :)

Katie Aman said...

You've been rocking some seriously gorgeous braided styles lately! I really love that for summer-braids are so much cooler than having hair all around your neck.
I love the soft pink theme of this outfit. It really is a gorgeous summer color, and the crocheted detail is lovely!
Oooh, you have to do senate stuff in the summer? Interesting...glad you're getting to be involved in such important decisions though-that is great!

Oh I love the skirt and the blouse! And omg cans I have those sandals?

Ali Hval said...

This top is so fuuuuunnn! I love the poofy sleeves. Those are totally fairy princess poof sleeves, ehehe~ I really love when you wear pastels and then toughen it up with some spikes. Oh, Linda! You and your spikes. ;)

iPads from the senate... man, that's an awesome perk indeed. Here's to hoping you don't get far too addicted!

Also, I'm totally tired of all this GFC going away speculation. I wish we just had a straight answer! Kinda makes me want to e-mail google and just ask, but at the same time, I'm sure they're flooded with e-mails and would never get to it... sigh!

Jodie said...

Wow an iPad- excellent perk. When I started uni they have me a laptop but strangely they never asked for it back.
You look beautiful I love the back detain and amazing shoes! I have such foot envy.
Thank you for the kind comment- of course you inspire me- how can't you? I'll will never regret the hat :) and thanks for the kind words about my brows- I think they're growing back already.

Maiken said...

that outfit - totally my cup of tea! I like your cute and girly blouse, stylish galaxy print skirt and fierce spike necklace. oh and those sandals too, of course! those metallic details are SO cool!
