Shirt: UO/ Cardigan: Gap/ Shorts: Delia's/ Bag: UO/ Shoes: Toms/ Tank: Target
I did a few odd things when I put together this outfit: first, I matched. Gasp. And I also wore a strange amount of layers: tank top, shirt, cardigan...well, what can I say? People here tend to over air-condition in the summer. Layers are the only way to go! As for the matching...I almost never match. I try to avoid matching like none other. But, for this outfit, I couldn't resist matching in small doses. The black stripes with the black shirt, the red flowers and red shoes...it all just fit too well. I couldn't help it. But, since matching is not in my comfort zone, of course, I mixed patterns to keep it me.
Oh, I just realized another weird thing. I did the tank-top-showing-at-the-bottom-of-the-shirt thing. I haven't done that since my Aeropostale days. But, one of the reasons that I love this shirt is that it's a little different from most of the things I own--it's got a large cut-out-circle thingy in the back, so a tank is necessary underneath. Knowing this, I decided to go for a pop of color, and went for turquoise. I love the effect from the back, but I'm still a bit on the fence about returning to my Aero days. We'll see how that one turns out.
P.S. OH I'd also like to point out a few new things on the blog now! First of all, now you can follow us on Bloglovin (or see the side bar)! Aaaaand there's now a handy dandy sharing button on the side bar/right column! Exciting, right? I am rather proud of that button. So now you can sport your Alles Mode love, if you wish! I'll leave you to it!
