Corey Lynn Calter skirt. Beth Bowley Cardigan. FCUK shirt. Chloe shoes. Necklaces from F21, Lorraine Pennington, J.Crew

Romantic detailing has suddenly been impulsive when getting dressed. Figured that putting together a bunch of neglected pieces in my closet within the same color range would somehow achieve my sugary goals. Felt like I had to edge it up with darker and edgier accessories before crossing over to saccharine. Also, Taghrid's obsession with putting big bows in one's hair started to rub off on me.

Besides nonsense clothing talk, I managed to catch the flu right before I come back from my extended work vacation. Expect a lot of complaints on twitter.
