A Spring Day in Paris – Louis Vuitton Silk and Ostrich Feather Dress

Light mints, sweet melons, and cool creams seem to be designed after a box of tasty macaroons. Yum yum. These lovely designs make me feel like grabbing a box of them, and strolling under the Eiffel Tower with a little lace parasol. These sweet candy looks and pouffy cotton candy effects deliver such a girlish vibe, that is quite refreshing! I love it!

Harem Pants – Forever 21 Gold and Black

I bought these pants a couple months ago because I thought they were so fun and comfy, but then I got super nervous to wear them because the harem pant trend scared me! I thought these ones were great, because they aren’t too baggy and the print is not out of control, plus getting them at Forever 21 you’re never spending too much money. I think that certain styles of them are adorable, but some of them are hideous and I definitely think it depends on how you wear them. So I went the safe route and just wore them with a plain tee. How do you think I did? I got the approval from my trusted style friend, but I thought I would reach out to my readers! yay or nay?!?

I think I like them a lot! I hope I’m not wrong!

Pants – Forever 21; Shirt – Urban Outfitters Tee; Shoes – Sam Edelman; Watch – Michael Kors; Necklace – J.Crew Elephant Critter; Bracelet – Forever 21; Earrings – American Eagle
