A refined bird

Shirt: Forever 21
Belt: J. Crew
Skirt: J. Crew
Sandals: Dolce Vita (Urban Outfitters)
Sunglasses: Ray Ban (borrowed from the boyfriend)

I thought about this shirt a few nights ago as I watched a flock of birds fly between a few palm trees at sunset. The birds appeared black against the pale yellow and pink light, creating a striking image as they circled the palm trees until settling in and perching on the leaves. I guess the image stuck with me because when it came time to get dressed before meeting up with a friend for a few drinks, I quickly reached for this shirt.

Last time I wore this shirt I took a decidedly bohemian approach, which isn’t too common for me. It’s a bit funny to me that I did so while living in a city, and now that I’m living a carefree life on the beach I went for a more refined look...or maybe I’m just reading into this a little too much. I still love this skirt just as much as I did when I bought it, and it has successfully transitioned through all seasons. I’ve worn it in winter, spring, and summer, and when it came time to pack, I couldn’t part with it. Which item in your closet do you reach for all year long?

Browsing through your outfits reminds me of summer! and this one is no exception. LOVE LOVE LOVE the sparrow-printed top :D

The item in my closet that I reach all year long is my H&M pussy bow blouse. Bought it 3 years ago and I'm still wearing it to this day :)
