Floral fringe.

Light pink c/o Hardcouture bandeau, Ivory gifted Meghan LA Fiji Sweater, Tan American Apparel rider high-waisted pants, Cream Forever 21 mary-jane heels, Gold F21 rings.


You probably can tell how much I'm addicted to fringe, and when I received this Meghan LA crochet fringe sweater, I instantly fell in love all over again.  Not only that, but it has pretty rhinestones in the middle of each crochet flower.  I decided to create a soft girly sweet outfit, unexpected when I think of fringe, but thought why not..since I haven't had girly outfits in a while.
I bought these F21 mary-jane heels a while ago, and love how they can be dressed up or worn casually pretty easily..and the platform is an added bonus.  Lastly, topped off the outfit with a soft delicate pink bandeau from Hardcouture, it goes perfectly with anything high-waisted, and moreover is so perfect for spring/summer.
--
Which btw, summer is leaving me too fast..school starts in about 2 weeks!  Have exciting news too to tell you!  Everything's happening so quickly, but moving into my apartment in a week, and got a new job at Urban Outfitters!  So far I love it, and cant wait to start officially this Friday.
Hope your weekends were fun and have an amazing week ahead lovelies!  Happy Monday! :)
--
P.S. Recently received these blogger awards below, thank you so much Chyrel and Sophie!
 

Now passing them on to these 15 lovely bloggers:
Jacquelyn from Style WorthwhileManon from Cute Red Bow, Shevah, Christine from Heart MadeSoukaina & Sofia from It-BLOGirls, Coralie from Coralie's Looks, Shels415, Natalie from 4 Seasons, Cara from A Fashion Love Affair, David from Virtually Stunning, Hey Dahye, Christen from Two Happy Hearts, Glass of Fashion, Sarah from SJTERRELL, and Sabrina from Jardin De La Mode
And part of the rules also is to list 7 random facts about myself, here it goes..
1) I named my first chihuahua puppy after my most fave city (besides my hometown)..Berkeley!
2) I have four moles on my right arm that create a perfect, in geometry nerdy terms: Rhombus or simply put, a diamond.
3) I walk crazy fast, it's a habit. My dad said he practically jogs "walking" right beside me.
4) The only sport I played back in high school was Badminton.  I know how to "smash"! ;P
5) When I don't know the definition of a word, first resource I use is urbandictionary.com, tells ya how smart I am ;)...or maybe I just use lots of slang words lol.
6) My favorite channel of all-time to tune-in when I'm bored is Food Network.  Me and my bf think Rachel Ray and Bobby Flay would make the perfect couple, their names rhyme perfectly.
7) Oh and that leads to number 7, my boyfriend's last name rhymes perfectly with mine: Carillo and Murillo.

 ♥, Kathleen.

Aww thank you! You're so sweet. Ok, I kept calling you the wrong name I think I keep calling you Carla. I think it used to be Kathleen Carla up top right? Haha But I see at the top that its Kathleen now. I'm sorry! Haha when I realized I kept doing it I was so embarrassed because I hate when people do that to me.

Ah, anyways, I'm seriously in love with this look. It's so perfect! I've been wanting to get some pants like that from American Apparel for the longest time! Gorgeous :)
