a monochrome aloha.


Here is a spring outfit of the day! All the flowers are in full bloom and its getting so warm out! Today, my friends and I visited our new apartment we will be living in next year and got some delicious drinks (frappucinos and bubble tea ;)) along the way~

Necklace- Just In One (Hong Kong)
Floral Shirt Dress- Topshop
Shoes- Dr. Martens
Sheer Tights- DKNY
Watch- Swatch
Bracelet- Tiffany & Co. 

This Hawaiian print dress manages to still look light and cheery despite having mixed grey hues! I love this dress! There is something whimsical about the big flowers and it has pockets! I paired the dress with black tights, my trusty classic Dr. Martens, and a white pearl and lace necklace. The black brings out the darker tones of the dress and the white necklace complements the white flowers. Being in college, heels are not always practical for walking around in. So these Dr. Martens really allow me to achieve a sleeker look while still giving me comfort.

Also, if you are self conscious about your arms, cuffed sleeves are the way to go! Cap sleeves tend to enhance the widest part of your arm, so I don't usually buy them. On the other hand, cuffed sleeves are just long enough to cover the widest part of the arm and they flare out a little bit, making the rest of your arm appear slimmer overall!

I hope the picture quality is beginning to get better :) Until next time! - Lauren <3
