Hello! It's hard to believe that it has been a week since I last posted. Sorry for my absence but this week has been full of studying, tests and looming deadlines. AP exam week or rather any exam week is never much fun. My afternoons and evenings this week have been spent studying, working and taking Pilates. And I also spent last weekend studying and working for the most part. However, I did manage to make an appearance at Richmond's Annual Arts in the Park for a few hours on Saturday morning. Although it was a bit chilly outside, Elizabeth and I enjoyed it. It's always interesting to see various types of art work at the event and the different kinds of people in attendance. One of my favorite things to do (when at an event like Arts in the Park) is to see what other people are wearing. Street style blogs are great, don't get me wrong but I prefer to see street style in person.

The outfit featured above is from sometime last week. I chose to style my look around yet another one of my striped thrift store finds. This top only cost $1- now that is what I call getting a good deal! It's kind of funny because although the look featured above was from last week, I am currently wearing the same striped top. Like I have said numerous times before, I have a severe addiction to patterns especially stripes and leopard. I just cannot resist them; their versatility never ceases to amaze me.

For this look, I paired the striped top with a pair of black ripped denim and black combat boots. The ripped denim and black combat boots served to slightly edge up my look. Gold bracelets and a classic pair of Giant Vintage Sunglasses completed my look.
