Snakeskin, fringe, and turquoise.

Gray H&M snake print maxi dress, Brown H&M fringe bag, Brown thrifted belt, Silver/turquoise F21 and Crossroads accessories, Dark brown Qupid wedges.


Afternoon Beautifuls!  Just had to share with you my FIRST ever maxi dress (I know strange, I have sooo many maxi skirts, yet no maxi dress yet until now) and it fit me like a glove when I tried it on at H&M.  In addition to my recent H&M visit, I finaally purchased (I couldn't resist!) the fringe bag I've been eyeing for soooo long.  I loove it, and ever since I've had it, been neglected my other bags (sorry bags..it's like Toy Story, they've kinna been abandoned) and used this one a lot.  There's so much space for everything while it's soo puurtty to look at :).
I also love the diff snakeskin design on this dress, it's def the most unique piece in my wardrobe.  It also has such a light material that it's perfect for spring/summer or for layering in the fall/winter.  Paired it with a woven thrifted belt, turquiose/silver accessories (I'm lusting over that color right now..turquoise), and my brown wedge boots..and off to school I went!  I'm really into the carefree bohemian looks right now for spring/summer -- hello to feathers, braids, fringe, turquoise, floppy hats, gladiator sandals, maxis, & more.
So a few things has happened in the blogosphere for me, the loovely Shevah of Shevah A Style Diary blog, passed on the "liebster" award to me.
So needa pass it on to 4 blogger girls+reasons why I <3 their blogs:
Emma of Scrapbook de la Emma for such inspiring posts, outfits, photos alll the time :).
Manon of Cute Red Bow for being the sweetest ever and having always such beeautiful looks.
Ramona of Strike a pose for leaving comments that leave me with many smiles.
Isabel of I FLY A STARSHIP for being so inspirational not only with her blog, but also Youtube videos.
--
Also wanted to share with you exciting news for my blog!  Want to introduce to you my newest sponsor!....casper&pearl!  You've seen in a post a while back a piece I just adored wearing from them and now am collaborating with them :).  The look and style of their shop definitely fits in with my style, so was happy to have them as a sponsor, can't wait to style more of their aamazing pieces to come! :)  Ps. their blog is so inspiring, def check it out.
Hope you'll have a happy Wednesday lovelies!  Keep inspiring beautifuls (bout to catch up on all your amazing blogs) and don't forget to enter my personal giveaway (floral headbands+gold clutch, perfect for spring time coming up!) in appreciation for all you!  Love ya girls!
<3, Kathleen.

That is a great first maxi dress. It looks gorgeous on you Kathleen! And seriously - why don't I ever see you on campus? If i saw you wearing this, I would've creepily cat-called/hollered from a distance ;) Seriously, though, it's like that dress was made to be worn by you
