Lookbook: Just a girl

A big bow, ruffles and mary janes, ah, I couldn't make this outfit more girly unless it was pink!  I very rarely shop at H&M - I hate the layout of the downtown Seattle store even if there's only 4 people in the store, the layout makes it so crowded that it seems like everyone in the store is all up in my personal space or I'm walking into racks of clothing - not how I like to shop, but I always see bloggers with such cute stuff from H&M so I decided to stop in and see if I had any luck.  Didn't end up finding any clothing but I spotted this headband and just couldn't resist the size of the bow and the Miu Miu-ish bird print!

What I'm Wearing
Blouse: ASOS
Skirt: from Aritzia
Tights: DKNY
Shoes: Miu Miu
Clutch: Gucci (Vintage)
Headband: H&M
Bracelet: Vintage

ASOS Pussybow Blouse
I love ASOS blouses, the usually fit well and the quality is pretty good for the price.  I only wish that I got a size smaller as it's slightly baggy for my liking but it's so hard with sizing for ASOS stuff. I'm also loving this military blouse and the detail on this blouse is really cute too, I think I may have to add these to my next order.
Gap Pleated tie skirt
How cute is this wide pleat skirt too?  And this "paintbrush stripe" skirt would be really cute with the blouse as well.  BTW, Gap is 2% cashback at ebates so don't forget to use it before you order! :)
Donna Karan Hosiery
Gotta have the gray tights!  I have so many tights and all varying shades of gray.  You really wouldn't think that I could have that many varieties of gray tights!
Ooh, these look perfect!  I love high platform mary janes!  Also have you seen these Jessica Simpson mary janes?  I love the height and the color.  So cute!  And I adore these Sergio Rossi Metallic Mary Jane Pumps, they would look so cute with black tights!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Jewel Metallic Clutch
Of course I love the Rebecca Minkoff MAC clutch as you've seen on me here.  The gray one would be great for every day!  Oh and if you love the qulited version it's on sale at ebags and get 6% cashback!

  4. Your outfit is soo cute on you. Love the head band. I personally love shopping at h&m I always get compliments on my outfits plus their prices are great and I find my size (I'm petite);-). I totally understand how you feel about not having you space or walking to racks of clothes. That's how I feel when I go to a f21 store lol.

  33. Cuteness:) I totally thought the headband was Miu Miu until I read the caption.
    Usually I hate walking into an H&M due to the sheer volume of product- but I must say I have been finding some amazing things in there lately when I have time to rifle through!
    Love the vintage bag:)Inspires me to go vintage shopping today...
