Surprisingly enough, I purchased this shirt at Forever 21, for FIFTEEN DOLLARS! Not only is it striped (which I love), but it has the serious shoulder which is one of my favorite things right now. The best part about it is that the material is cotton casual, and I can wear it with jeans or even dress it up with a skirt.
It’s strictly for spring unfortunately, but I’m still going to wear it now. The other thing I love is the sock with the heel. I feel as if they always belonged together and I’m just realizing it now. I wore it out for dinner last night and it felt so weird, as if I forgot my pants, but looked so cool.
I don’t even know why, but I bought a medium when I know I’m a small. I guess I thought the baggier the cooler (which is usually the case for most t-shirt purchases) but not this one. This should be tighter and fitted to the body, so if you go check it out make sure to buy the size that actually fits you. I know you must be wondering about the earrings. The earrings were kind of just a joke that I actually followed through with.
Sometimes when I shop I get a little ballsy and in this strange “try something new” mood and usually succumb to trashy cheesy things just for the fun of it, but I always wind up wearing it at some point, hence the aviator earrings. I must say, Forever 21 has the best jewelry ever. I could stand in front of the jewelry section meticulously browsing through for a good hour and a half and completely neglect the fact that the store is supposed to be about their clothing.
Lots more to come! x
