Top and Skirt – Brandy Melville / Sunglasses – Kate Spade
This picture is funny to me because this was the first time that I had worn this outfit and I remember looking at this and thinking, “WOW this girl does NOT live in Seattle anymore.” Somehow, this all felt really California to me. When I first moved to California and discovered Brandy Melville, I thought I had found my new favorite retailer. First things first – there’s a lot of people that actually don’t like this store for the one fact that everything is one size only. As we all know, not every one is the same size and I sort of feel like the retailer just didn’t want to come out and say that they are mainly a retailer that caters to petite people. Personally, it’s great for people like me, but I know we’re not the majority at all. When I first bought this corduroy skirt, I remembered thinking that I wasn’t going to find many uses for it, but I wanted it anyways. Somehow, it manages to work with a lot of my pieces and it has been fun trying to pair it off with things that you wouldn’t think would be a match. This is also one of my favorite tops because it goes so well with just about anything. It’s nice for summer because it’s not too thin, but it has a slight thickness to it too because of its sweater material. I’m not sure why we caught this post below, but holy – arms! I swear, they never look like that.
