Here's to you

polkarail1

I was channeling my inner Gossip Girl when I got dressed. A dash of Jenny, a hint of Serena, and a touch of Blair. If you've never seen (or read) Gossip Girl, I realize that means nothing to you and I'm a bit sorry for you. It's only one of the best "guilty pleasures" known to man kind. Wearing two tones of pink (or any color) is something I've never done and I certainly feel pretty weird about it. But I'll consider doing it again.

Also let's talk about this flower crown of mine. It's actually a necklace that I purchased from the best little local boutique in Akron, Noto. The owner, Lauren, is the biggest supporter of the local bloggers, fashion scene, and Akron in general. So, when I saw this necklace, I knew I could transform it into a cheap flower crown for every day wear. I probably won't wear it as a necklace, but you never know.

It's Father's Day, so holla to my father who is the best dude in the entire world. He can barely operate his iPhone, so I know he won't be reading my blog any time soon, but ya' know. I did post a rad photo on instagram if you are curious as to how rad my dad has always been.

  1. The necklace turned flower crown looks so good!!! Is Gossip Girl on netflix? I'm still going through Dawson's creek at the rate of a turtle (because Reed doesn't ever want to watch with me.. I can't understand why?). -♥- Rachel (For the Birds)

  6. Hee hee yes GG was a definite guilty pleasure. What made GG so fun besides the awesome clothes was the wonderful cinematography and really using NY as more then just a back drop and also that it did not take it self too seriously and always had an under current of cheeky satirical humor running through it.

    You look great btw, and so true about Nasty Gal and you could totally rock their looks!

  8. I loved that picture of your dad! I don't know why you haven't mixed two tones of the same color before, I think this outfit is great. I especially love the skirt, but I'll always be a sucker for polka dots :)

    I absolutely love this outfit, that skirt is so great with the pops of pink. And the flower necklace as a crown is perfect. I just got one so this is great inspiration!

  11. That flower "crown" looks so good on you and you definitely look like you just stepped out of a gossip girl episode.

  14. I can't believe this crown was actually a necklace, it looks perfect as a crown! I'm loving the two tones of pink, I want to try this! Is it really still cold enough to wear tights in Akron??

  15. That necklace is great turned into a crown.

  16. I love this outfit!! The two tones of pink are totally awesome. I feel the same way about wearing so much of the same color but it's really trendy and anyways worth the risk :) And AWESOME floral crown!!

  17. I love these shades of pink together! They have that 'almost clashing, but not' thing that I'm just obsessed with. Aaaand polka dots! I love that you took a skirt which could be classic and just revved it up-that's a specialty of yours I think :) Also-genius idea wearing the necklace as a floral crown! Love it!

  19. Haha- I've seen every episode of GG, total guilty pleasure. I feel lost lately without a teen drama in my life! What are you watching now? I love this & the 2 pinks really work together. I want your skirt!!
