castaways and cutouts.

drit jacket, leyendecker top, aqua skirt, theory heels, target tights and leg warmers, h&m socks, vintage necklace, hairbow from when i was five.

We had a free dress day at school (hooray!) and my friend and I wanted to do something a little extra instead of wearing the standard issue jeans and a t-shirt because, I mean, what the heck. We might as well, and as long as we were "appropriately covered", detention wouldn't be a problem. So the two of us decided on something lightly inspired by Harajuku, which turned out to be quite fun (and got a lot of questions), even though it ended up being boiling hot by the end of the day.

And speaking of Harajuku, I absolutely fell in love with these two looks from Style Arena. The layering is fantastic and I want that red fedora.
