Some days you just feel like a mermaid, you know?
Top: thrifted, pants and earrings: Target, necklace: present from a friend, hairclip: Crown & Glory
I love how accessories can add a touch of glamour and whimsy to an otherwise plain outfit. It’s something I need to do, to maintain my sense of self and sparkle when I’m dressed for practicality.
It’s so interesting how different people experience getting dressed differently. The other day, I was talking about clothing with a friend, who mentioned that she loves jobs that require uniforms because when she’s wearing one, she knows exactly what role she is supposed to play. For me, it’s the opposite: I just don’t feel comfortable if I’m not expressing my creativity through my clothes or accessories, even in small ways. It brightens my day and makes the world kinder to me.
This top is one of my favorite recent thrifting finds. It’s versatile and pretty and I love how it fits me. I’ll try to get some better pictures of it when I’m not at work!
