Today is a bit of a gloomy day. Hurrican Irene is coming our way as I live on the east coast. Hopefully everyone managed to find a safe place to stay for the next few days. Matt and I are going back to my apartment before the rain hits for the weekend. We both wanted to meet my roommate and to finish up my apartment room. I just have a few more things I need to organize before its complete. I would like to eventually show you all my room !
As for this outfit today I went with my good old scalloped shorts from Urban Outfitters that you see me wearing a lot on here on my blog. I wanted to play with black and brown together. Usually the two don’t mesh well together but I think done right, it makes for a great outfit. I paired the shorts up with a beautiful lace white shirt from Forever 21. I didnt get any pictures of the back but it has a really nice lace detailing that adds some edge to the look.
Finally my handbag is from Colour Me. I picked out this tan handbag from there as well as the gold necklace you see in the pictures. The idea behind the website is to help you better find what you are looking for by using different color palettes. They have already pre-organized all their pieces (jewelry and handbags) into colors which is a really nice and unique way to find things. I have a 50% off code for all my followers and subscribers if you wish to purchase there as well 🙂 The code is FOREVER50 so make sure to enter that in at checkout. Giveaway possibly with Colour Me coming soon.
