Hello again! So I'm trying to get back in the groove of taking pictures of my outfits. My favorite Canon S95 was sadly stolen, and it's been a tad difficult taking pictures since then. I'm not exactly sure how bloggers tow their dslr all the time, but I'm trying to make it into a habit to at least have it on the weekends.
So here's last Memorial Day weekend's outfit of the day that partially posted on Instagram.
My friend and I had the chance to visit the Cleopatra Exhibit at the California Science Center. It was a pretty exciting day for me since I really love and am very fascinated with Egyptian art and history. It was interesting to learn about the life of the most well-known woman in history by seeing the things that surrounded her and things that she touched. It's an amazing exhibit, and I think everyone should check it out while it's still here in LA.
So back to the outfit... I've always been a little hesitant with mixing prints before. But like how I've mentioned it a kajillion times already, blogging has actually made me adventurous when it comes to putting outfits together. Sometimes they may work, and sometimes they do. The whole trial and error process is the fun part of finding out your personal style. I ended up really loving the pairing of this striped shirt and my super feminine floral shorts. I think adding the military style jacket and buckled ankle boots toughen up the outfit a little bit. Normally, I would've probably worn one or the other with something more solid, but the goal that day was to mix prints.
On top of mixing prints, I've also made the leap to lighten my ombre. This is probably the lightest I've ever been my whole life. I guess I'm actually partially blonde now. I've always had my jet black hair ever since my bad highlight job that fried my hair leaving me crying in tears, but that's another story. Anyway, the lightest part of my ombre has gotten much lighter since I got done. I really love the color and how it turned out overall. My hair is ready for summer!
