Lookbook: Swing from the Tangles of My Heart

Children surround me. I mean, I live in a neighborhood that is scattered with children. Some times that can be annoying (driving through school zones), but other times, that can be quite fun: playgrounds. Wait...did that come out wrong?

What I mean to say is there are a ton of playgrounds around me, which means a ton of swings for me to swing on. Almost exactly two years ago, I did a lookbook post for Chictopia's Chic & Fuzzy contest, in which I took outfit photos with my dog Inigo. Swings were involved then and they are involved now.

This is what I wore to the San Jose Dishwalk. You walk around the downtown restaurants and eat discounted food truck type dishes like pulled pork sandwiches, enchiladas, crepes and froyo.

Keeping with the young at heart theme, this lookbook post is complete with story notes!



♥ Michael Kors sunnies ♥ Nastygal polka dot blouse ♥ Dillards shorts ♥ Jeffrey Campbell Roxie platforms ♥ F21 and eBay rings ♥ Poshlocket Shelly fabric choker ♥

Hope everyone had a great mother's day weekend!
