i might be four years old

Isn’t it awkward when you’re dressed almost exactly the same as a four-year-old girl at the pharmacy?  Something tells me I should take that as a sign — a sign this outfit is totally awesome!

Topshop dress, Funtasma saddle shoes, Forever 21 cardigan.

This jersey dress from Topshop is so easy to throw on; the detail in the back makes it look fancier than it feels to wear it.  Add some red lipstick — instant outfit.

The best part, though, is my handmade wild eyeball bracelets:

These are for sale in my Etsy shop, but I love them so much I kind of want to keep them for myself.  I definitely have to go back and get more of these insane glass beads.

Hi guys!

This cardigan was on sale for $5 on the Forever 21 website so I gave it a shot.  Proportionally it’s a little weird because of its length, but it works over a longer-line dress like this one the girls from Stop Staring! sent me last year.

Mainly though today I’m stoked on my Cheap Monday cube bangle, which was a score on PLNDR and which is causing everyone around me to freak out.  Talk about a conversation piece.  People who you wouldn’t expect to notice a gal’s jewelry at all have been all over this thing all day today.  I really love it.

Real casual, that is.

Last night a couple of my girlfriends and I tried out Honestly WTF’s braided hex nut bracelet DIY.

It was a little tedious and required some serious finger dexterity, but once we got the hang of it it got easier and the outcome is adorable!  I’m really into a wristful of crafty, handmade (or at least handmade-feeling) bracelets for this season, especially paired with an boho bangle or two:

I’m excited to try this out with colored threads and yarns and hardware in different tones and sizes.
