Sweet in pink.

Light pink H&M silk kimono, Light blue Levi's shorts thrifted at Wasteland, Brown thrifted belt, Light pink ASOS quilted bag, Light pink Urban Outfitters floral headband, Pink/brown Urban Outfitters gladiator sandals, Brown Icing round sunnies.
Hi Beautifuls!  So had a hiatus from wearing very girly sweet looks (minus the maxi dress i wore before in a previous post..which I luhlooved wearing btw).  But, so I kinda went all out on this outfit, except it's all things I love; yes the high-waisted shorts have returned once again :P -- which actually is my favorite kind of item in my closet..anything "high-waisted" and involving shorts, I go gaga for.
I found this aaamazing light pink kimono at H&M (been lookin everrywhere for a kimono!) and finally found one there, and for a super great price -- only $30!  I would've fell in love with it more if it had fringe, but hey, it's still super pretty!  Decided to add my feminine sweet accessories, a pink quilted bag from ASOS (reminiscent of Chanel quilted bags) and my faave floral headband from Urban Outfitters.
Sooo, I really dont think I ever wore sunglasses in an outfit post on my blog?  So weird since sunglasses are like my alltime fave accessory to collect :P.  Newhoo, I reallyreally wanted to find round sunnies that are similar to the ones MK Olsen usually wears, like the one below (who is like my #1 fave celeb style icon btw).
I also wanted to share with you a few items I've been lusting for from American Apparel lately.  I will definitely try and save up for these pieces, but for now, they'll be waiting for me to purchase them in my ever-growing bookmarked shopping list in my web browser.
Long accordion skirt in almondine, flower mesh jumper, petticoat in ivory.

Hope you lovelies are having a great week so far!  More posts to come!  Until then, keep inspiring beautifuls with your amazing outfits..I seriously love every one of them! :)

<3, Kathleen.

P.S. I'm a total sucker for high waist shorts, too.

You know how I feel about that floral kimono jacket a.k.a. I WANT IT! Haha it looks amazing on you. And I agree - you do love your high waisted shorts. I almost always see you in high waisted shorts! I can totally imagine those MK sunglasses on you - hopefully you can find a good pair that isn't deathly expensive.

'Sweet in pink' doesn't do you enough justice. A better title would have been 'Sweet in everything'.

Hehe, this look is fabulous (as usual).
