this outfit formed as kind of a random mishmash of ideas. I bought this blouse from Ruche a couple weeks back, and something about the navy and the polka dots made me really want to pair it with my pink pants [and thus the idea for this series was born!]. is that a random combination? maybe. but I like it. that gold thing on my head is a gift sent to me by my dear friend Selina, which I then converted into a headband-thing for the take of ingenuity, I guess. I added the long pearl necklace because I felt under-accessorized. and the crazy socks were because it was cold [and also partially inspired by Kendi].
let it be known that I had a horrible time taking these pictures. it was horribly cloudy all week, so I waited until yesterday morning when the sun reappeared - but then it was too sunny. so I had to seek out a shady corner of the parking deck that looked secluded up until I set up my tripod - and then I swear half the city of Birmingham decided to walk/drive by. on the 5th floor of the on-campus-students parking deck. gahhh I JUST WANT PEACE. I started shooting people the stink eye; I think it even made one girl turn around and find somewhere else to park. success. so anyway, long story short, these photos are not my best effort.
also, for your viewing pleasure, here's an outtake of me losing my balance:
