Bare Midriff

Hey lovelies!

How are you all? ♥

Isn't it fun it's almost weekend? I know I'm loving it. Today I was shopping and lunching with my fiance and his friend who's staying over until tomorrow, and I really had a lot of fun. I also got an item I need to finish off a DIY project, so stay tuned for a brand new DIY post. ;)

And I got a little something to put on packages I'll put on mail tomorrow. Those who are waiting for me to send something to them, heads up!

Did I mention earlier I had a nasty little fall the other day? I got three cuts from asphalt and it hurts when I walk, but other than that, I'm just fine. Days like that really remind me why I keep photos stored for the future - when something weird happens, I still can blog. :D

Now, what I can say for the outfit... I had been curious to try out the bare midriff trend, but haven't really had the top - or the bottom to create the look. Then one day, when I was tidying my closet, it came to me. I had the top and had the bottom, and when it was warm enough, I wore them together.

And here's the result:

Skirt: thrifted
Cropped top: Gina Tricot, studs DIY
Biker shorts leggings: Gina Tricot
Wedges: SpiritStore
Faux leather jacket: H&M
Pink necklace: my cousin's old
Skull rosary necklace: Gina Tricot
Feather earrings: H&M
Stud earring: H&M
Cuff: Gina Tricot

I must say this is one of my favorite Summer outfits this far - though I've worn many lovely ones after this, too. I love the way my hair looks here, the shade is so cute. I try my best to keep it that way (meaning, a bath tomorrow with some bubbly and a color mask ;)), but we'll see - as, you know, I'm not really a redhead. 

What do you all think about the look? Have you tried this trend, or do you plan to leave it for the others?

Oh, you know what I'm starting tomorrow? The 31-day manicure challenge! (Mentioned in this post.) ;) Okay, it'll be more like 2-3 months long due my schedule, but it'll be exciting - at least for me, anyways. The manicures will be featured in the blog, and I try to make some of them into tutorials if I just have the time.

Also, I have some exciting news to share with you, but it's not quite the time yet. Can't wait to get to tell you all, though! 

Have a fabulous start for your weekend! 

Blog ya later, 

xoxo

  8. Falling and getting hurt is one of my hugest fears. I've been terrified of it ever since I was little and a fall resulted in me having surgery. I hope your cuts heal soon.

    Love your outfit. That skirt and those shoes are pretty amazing.

  9. I vaguely remember you mentioning you had fallen on asphalt, but that your bf had gotten you goodies to make you feel better, right?

    I love this outfit! The studs on the top are a great accent, and I really LOVE your shoes! Can't wait to see the mani challenge. It should be exciting!
