Pink, Stripes

Top:  Ralph Lauren // Pants:  Ralph Lauren // Shoes:  Gucci (gifted) // Bangles:  Lilly In Pink // Sunglasses:  Gucci

It’s that time of year again, time to whip out the hot pink pants!  I tried to wear them a few times over the winter to cheer myself up and remind me of warmer days but I kind of had some weird looks come my way.  So I had to hold off on wearing these pants until it got a little warmer.  I decided to pair them with this top because I love how it’s kind of an off the shoulder top, but not really.  It shows just enough of the shoulder that I think I could get away with wearing this at work, but who knows.  I’m not sure if I’m willing to try haha!  I love the nautical feel with the stripes.  Yes, I’m one of those girls who loves anything nautical.  I’m not sure why but I think it has to do with the fact that my family in Poland are beach people.  They live right on the Baltic Sea and part of my family used to be ship builders way back in the day.  I guess loving water, the beach, and anything nautical runs in my genes.

I wanted to stay slightly simple with this outfit because I feel like the top is a statement in itself.  I paired it with my black Gucci pumps and some bangles from my Etsy shop.  I love this whole bracelet stacking trend.  Not only does it look cute, but I have tattoos on both wrists to cover up at work, so it doesn’t look weird when I’m wearing a few bracelets on one hand.  As I look at this picture and compare it to a few recent ones with my extensions, can I please say that even though it’s fun rockin’ a different hairstyle, I really can’t wait for it to grow out.  At least long enough to put in a pony tail.  The one thing that gets annoying with this haircut is the fact that it grows out weird and when you go to put your hair up in a pony tail you have a bunch of hair on the bottom that you can’t even really pin up.  However, before I grow it out I’m going to make the best of it.  I will most likely end up trimming or cutting it eventually so let the growing process begin for now until I change my mind AGAIN and decide to chop it all off haha.  This is what happens when I get bored.  I tend to change my look.  Most of the time I try and change my style a little bit before I touch my hair, but sometimes it’s inevitable and happens anyway.  I’ll never be able to have long hair without extensions though.  My hair is very thin and it’s very hard to grow it out and very hard to keep healthy without having to trim it all the time.  Plus, extensions add a lot of volume which I am definitely in need of!
