La Petite Fille

Putting together this outfit made me feel like a little girl again, playing in my mom’s closet, but in the best way possible!  I’d really wanted these little oxford booties, but all the ones I really liked were out of my price range.  Then, I stumbled across these randomly in a Plato’s Closet, and they were my size and only $8! I mean, what are the chances?!  I was in a girly girl mood, so I added the knee-high socks and flouncy, colorful skirt for a slightly dressy causal outfit that I wore to a going-away party.

Cardigan, camisole, skirt- Forever 21, socks- Target, oxford booties- Plato’s Closet
my attempt at being an innocent little girl, lol

Can I just reiterate how excited I am to wear my Halloween costume?!  Since I wasn’t allowed to celebrate Halloween growing up (the first time I was able to dress up was my freshman year in college) I really like to go all out!  Also, for a while I was really unexcited about my costume, which was bumming me out, but once I decided to sew part of the costume myself, I was able to bring my vision to life.  What I especially love about Halloween here at school is that there are several days of parties and activities!  Things kicked off yesterday and will continue up through Sunday.  I’m especially looking forward to Saturday, when most of the parties and “trick-or-treating’ ;) happens, and also Sunday, for the annual YSO show that’s performed.  So it will be a busy and fun weekend :) What plans do you guys have for Halloween?

    thanks! When I saw the look on other people, I really liked it, but I thought it might looks stupid on me. I decided to give it a try anyway, and I really liked it! It's fun to play around, even if it's not something you plan on trying again. Looking forward to seeing your socks and shoes outfit! :)
