Ribbon in the Sky

7/11/2016

The twists are on and poppin' for the summer, muses. And I'll probably be rockin' a lot of hats this summer as well. With this particular hairstyle, I always get a very Janet Jackson/Poetic Justice vibe going -- you guys remember that one?

Quick, funny story about this ribbon top: I bought it from F21 Contemporary, where everything runs a little bigger. I ordered the small, but when it arrived, I noticed that I was sent the medium. I couldn't return it because at this point all the smalls were sold out. But it fit me like the getup that Rihanna wears in the This Is What You Came For video, lol. So I busted out my DIY skills, cut the threading so the ribbons could separate and then tied them like shoelaces. Voila!

Oh, and how cute are my feather accents today? Both the hand cuff (so unique, right?) and the feather ear cuffs from SpotLight Jewelry are summer favorites. These are the best ear cuffs I own right now because they don't hurt at all. Could wear them all day without a problem!

On the Muse: | Forever 21 Contemporary ribbon accent top | NY&Co studio shorts c/o (pink version) | Forever 21 Diamond cutout sunglasses | Feather ear cuffs c/o SpotLight Jewelry | Aldo Colyn flats (similar) | Forever 21 Burnished feather hand cuff |

And today is the Monday Mingle Linkup that I host with Momtrends and Take Time for Style! The linkup is hosted at Momtrends today, so go add your post!
