Blush velvet.

Blush H&M blazer, Black/pink c/o Hardcouture floral noir bloomers, White Shopjoellenlove crochet top, Tan Forever 21 suede wedges, Silver ebay chain ring/bracelet.

So I just noticed when putting this outfit together, these pieces came from some of my fave blogger girls and their own online boutiques/shops separately, Kristine of Hardcouture and Joellen of Joellenlove, who happen to be really great friends too.  Yes, ironically or subliminally I paired their two pieces together :).  But newhoo, I seriously lovelove the goodies Kristine my sponsor sent me last weekend!  I instantly fell in love with every piece, but these floral noir bloomers are SO lovely -- what I love most about it though is the velvet soft fabric.  This definitely is a great summer outfit along with the loose crochet top.  Paired it off with my fave H&M blazer and comfy F21 wedges.
Also, first time in a while on my blog since I've had my hair up, and this time I attempted the fishtail braid!  I learned it from some trusty youtube videos and voila.  

And I haven't really worn out this chain/ring bracelet I got from ebay a while back, but it definitely is one of my favorite jewelry pieces because it's so unique especially with the matching heart ring and bracelet.  At the moment, I'm really into unique, raw, and edgy types of jewelry.  A recent jewelry designer I found while browsing through fashion blogs, was Pamela Love.  Her designs are goorgeous, and I love how she gets inspiration from nature and science including traveling and different cultures.
A dream of mine is to definitely travel the world once I graduate from Cal, and along the way, start making my own collection of jewelry pieces I pick up in different places.  First stop I've always craved to visit..Paris!  Gotta start saving now haha.  Hm, but maybe before Paris, New York? :)

Thank you again lovelies for your sweetest comments!  In appreciation for all of you my readers, I'm having a personal giveaway for you all!  It was in a recent post, definitely be sure to enter! :)  Hope your weeks are off to a great start!  Now off to get some definite inspiration from your lovely blogs!! :)

<3, Kathleen.

your hair looks so pretty up! I really like how you pull off the shorts and tights combination...I tend to find these types of outfits to be poorly coordinated-but not you!

Ok, now I am tempted to actually learn how to do a fishtail braid on youtube :)
