A Pleasant Surprise

7.11.2011






( F21 top, skirt, belt, necklace & sandals; Agaci sunglasses )

 Say hello to my new favorite prints to mix! I wasn't quite sure they would mesh well together, but I'm content with the finished look. I mean, stripes and tribal? Who knew! I used to think that the 30x30 challenge didn't seem that hard at all, but now after staring blankly at the items I chose not knowing what would pair well together, I can see why they call it a challenge! Especially the no shopping... Although my boyfriend has no complaints about that part! But what does he know? :P
