primary colors

peplum: DIY // sweater: Banana Republic Outlet (similar) // skirt: Cotton On // shoes: LuLu's (same) // bag: Buffalo Exchange
I'm like stupid-excited about this outfit, y'all. It's one of my favorite outfits of all time, I think. 

Exciting things about this look:
// This is the first center-part hairstyle I've attempted. I surprisingly really like it. What do you think? (Be brutal!)
// This is the clutch I took to senior prom. It's the only clutch I own.
// This is my first black mini skirt. I know. I'm so glad I finally found one!
// This is the first time I've actually worn my peplum DIY on the blog. Dark denim is surprisingly hard to pair with other things. How would you style it?
// I threw on the cardigan for the sake of primary colors. I think it looks fab.
// I wore this outfit to the opening of a graphic design agency. It was the hippest party I've probably ever been to. Dago and I stood together and judged all of the outfits in the room for an hour and a half and then went home to watch Community. It was a good night.
// I'm excited to repeat this outfit a bunch. I try not to be a repeat outfit offender, but I can't wait to wear it again.

What would you wear to a hip design party?

  8. LOVE your hair like this -- it looks so lovely! Also, those shoes. Also, that shirt. You DIY-ed it? TELL ME MORE. It is amazing! I'd maybe wear it with colored skinnies, if you're looking for other ways to rock it.

  9. I'm always afraid that when I wear too many primary colors I look like a kindergarten teacher or something; I think the denim pairs nicely with the yellow though, and I think texture has something to do with that. I love the hair! I've gotten really good at styling my hair down but I'm so bored with it but everytime I put it up I feel like I look silly. Nice hair pick-me-up.

  10. Loving the yellow cardigan! I'm giving you two thumbs up for your hair!

  11. Loving the bright bursts of color here! Makes me crave springtime sun asap!
