Yesterday, my husband and I decided to dedicate the whole day entirely to ourselves. And we had the most splendiferous day ever. We played games, read, ate out, thrifted, and played a mini photo challenge where we set off to hunt for photos of themes we decided ourselves. We don't get to have entire days to ourselves much, so yesterday was a treat. A very good treat.

I haven't worn this skirt in a while. Last time I did, I wore my top tucked in, and I think I like the look of that better, but with the top out, it's much more comfy. I was feeling a bit girly, so I layered on the sweet and spring-y colors in this look, but wore my skull ring so as not to give people the wrong impression about me being a nicey-nice girl. Because I'm not. Well, not all the time. Mostly when I have splendiferous days.

I hope you have a splendiferous day!

  3. That's awesome that you dedicated a whole day to yourselves. It's not often that people do that. I love your skirt!! I've always wanted to make one, and have everything too. I think you've inspired me to make one very soon. Thanks Laura! PS Can't wait to see what you've found thrifting!!

  12. I love the colors of this outfit, so perfect for spring. And that necklace is so cute! I know what you mean about wearing shirts untucked, it is so much more comfy but I always feel off. It looks so good with your outfit though!!

  32. I love the mint paired with the purple/pink (a dark magenta, sort of?) You sort of look 60's and sort of look modern. And missy, you're having one excellent hair day there. Love the effortless hairdo.

  39. This top is the most beautiful color! Love the color of the skirt, too. With the skull ring this outfit is definitely reminding me of Mandy from The Grimm Adventures of Billy and Mandy, haha :)

  40. your makeup is so natural and very pretty! Love that mint top!! I need more of that colour in my life haha

  41. Ooo lala I looove the minty green and the purple dusky skirt -- with the skull ring! Just a perfect concoction of outfit, Laura! And that sounds like such a perfect day to have. I'm going to suggest one of those to Matt.
    p.s. And I'm so sorry that I've made you feel so guilty about trying to shop at F21. I totally do the same thing. I pace in front of Primark, go in thinking "I don't care! I want something cheap and cute!" and then leave empty-headed, but still feeling disgruntled. I figure this path will be a windy, twisty one with loops to go back to shopping at less ethical places just because to be a saintly shopper 100% of the time would make life impossible (and leave me with very little to clothe myself with!).
