Day & Night

Pause. Take a minute and check out these sun and moon earrings from Shoplately! I absolutely love that they're not "perfectly" matching, although in my mind, they're the true pairs of each other. They can represent how life is - just like there are days and nights, there are bright spots and dark times in our life. But without night, we couldn't appreciate the sun's warmth, and if we lived in the sunshine all the time we'd get sunburned.
Okay, and now that I've spouted out the weirdest analogy ever, continue.
Spike Socks: c/o Oasap   Earrings: c/o Shop Lately   Jacket: Forever 21   Skirt & Bag: thrifted   Beanie: Rue 21
Here's a  peek at the photo from above so you know what the color of the earrings would be in person.
Noticed the spiked socks? I bet you had a laugh at that - I mean, how perfect are they though?? When I came across these on Oasap, I started smiling at the reaction they'd probably get. So naturally, I picked them out. They're a tad tight on my muscular legs, but at least they don't cut off my blood circulation!

These new earrings from Shop Lately are perfect though. I wore them to work one day and got so many compliments, and that was from customers seeing them from only one angle. When I showed them the other half and told them they were a sun and moon set, they loved them even more, just like I did!

Anyway, this is an outfit I plan on wearing to school. I've enjoyed challenging myself to wear skirts more often and still apply an edgy aesthetic without relying on black leather. So I dealt with it by wearing a leather jacket in white instead. Haha, the fact that it's white makes it much more crisp and eye catching! Plus, isn't that supposed to be an upcoming spring trend or something? Gotta stay on top of it all!

In other news...my hair is RED!
Not in these photos. Haha, not yet at least. These were taken last week. It has that subtle reddish tint, but it's barely noticeable. So yesterday, Sarah and I went back in and re-dyed it. I'm going to go out and buy the hair care products needed to keep my hair healthy and I also plan on investing in hair vitamins. Anyone heard of them? Anyway, you can see a peek of it on my Instagram (@dragonfruit_diaries) if you're curious. I'll be waiting to get some nice photos on my Nikon soon!

Thanks so much for the positive responses on my last post by the way - so many made me smile!
Have a lovely day, Dragonistas ;)

Oh, those tights and hat with the spikes are so you! This outfit is truly great, I love the mix of different things: the rougher leather with the softer, sheer shirt, looks amazing! And I really, really like those earrings!

I totally know what you mean with the whole sun + night thing. Freshman year I took a seminar on LOTR (yeah, nerd status represent) and we discussed how you basically can't have light without dark, since light is the absence of darkness. Anyways, it reminded me of your spiel :) The earrings are gorgeous and remind me of something a fortune teller would wear!
