Self discovery through a flowery path

(f21 skirt, thrifted top, shoes from Ross)
I put this outfit on as it is in the first picture but I felt too girly. Nothing wrong with being too girly but Its just not me. Maybe my style is more like New York than it is a flowery LA.. So I added the blazer and the socks for an edgier trendier look. I haven't worn this anywhere. I put this together at midnight last night because I found myself restless and unable to entertain myself, so why not try on outfits right? I think the need to add the dark blazer and socks might have surfaced from watching too many FALL 2010 Runway shows... so here is my attempt to fall out of Fall and jump into Spring.
These are the trends that I'm excited for.

I'm digging these pale nail colors. I recently saw a blogger with a pale gray and I loved it! But I'll try some colors as well.

Super tall nude wedges. I can't wait to get my hands on some similar to these. Photo from

Here is a way less expensive option from Charlotte Russe.

I love socks

I love all sorts of legwear actually. Especially these sheer knee high socks.
I've been drooling over these shoes for a while but they are sold out everywhere. I hope my mother can find them in time for my birthday!

Crochet everything is so hot this spring. These booties are the most adorable thing!

Why is it that everyone seems to have found one of these at a thrift store except for me? Not paying $60 for one!

This Spring I want to mix prints... I must find prints first. Wouldn't this top and shorts look great together? Both from Topshop.

I want rainboots to toughen up any other girly outfit I might run into. It also does rain a lot in FL.
