Suburban Turban

Dress worn as top: Brandy Melville, Skirt: American Apparel, Tights: DKNY, Shoes: Prada, Bracelets: J. Crew, Clutch: Junior Drake, Sunnies: Michael Kors, Headpiece: American Apparel, Nail Polish: Essie 'Silken Cord'


With the weekend starting off a bit rainy, I had little faith that we were going to end up with beautiful sunny skies. But ye have little faith cause sunny it was! This had me feeling like bringin' a little flair to suburbia so I threw on my velvet twisty turban and off we went for the day! I am a big fan of the illusive wistful feel that sheer fabrics give off and this skirt was the perfect example of that. Especially when it billowed in the wind. As for that delicious cream bow? It's attached to the dress and there are endless DIY tying possibilities! So fun.
