Pleated sheer.

Pink H&M floral top, Brown thrifted belt, Black thrifted sheer pleated skirt from Wasteland, Tan thrifted Goodwill bag, Brown H&M round sunnies, Gold F21 rings and gifted LUXLA bracelet, Dark brown Qupid wedges.

Today was 90 degrees and definitely decided to wear something flowy and sheer.  Finally got to wear out this sheer skirt casually, as in I've worn it plenty of times at dressy classy events ie. my brother's girlfriend's cotillion and a fashion event before.  I definitely love this skirt thrifted from Wasteland -- I changed it up a bit tho and cut the black skirt underneath so that you can peek through and see my legs lol (sounded creeperish lol). Newhoo, you get the idea ;p and it was only $15!  Such a steal.  I'm craving to thrift again!
These H&M round sunnies do not leave my face everytime I go out, they're my fave.  Along with my LUXLA bracelet, which btw, has inspired me to go out and make my own friendship bracelets.  DIY project coming up soon!! :)  Will visit my nearest Michael's craft store :p.
And have been wearing my hair up so much lately cause of the heat.  And bought myself recently lots of scrunchies, throwback to the 90's when I was little lol.

Also, these past few days I've felt so much love with my recent feature on Refinery 29!  You all are THEE sweetest ever.  Thank you so much for leaving amazing comments and messages.  <3
I hope you all are having a lovely week so far.  Tomorrow I'm going to thrift and vintage shop with my high school friends, makes me feel older saying that haha.  Going to venture around Haight St. again :).
Now off to return all your comments and be super inspired by all your amazing blogs!

♥, Kathleen.
