Daisies in my Hair

"I'd rather have daisies in my hair than diamonds around my neck."

Hello! Diamonds are a girl's best friend? Don't you mean daisies are a girl's best friend? Yesterday, I played up my inner flower child and slipped a daisy crown on top of my head. 

The look that I was going for was very boho, inspired by music festival fashion. Maybe one day I will get a chance to attend a festival like Coachella but for now, I am just imitating the fashion found at music festivals (like Coachella.) I decided to keep the base of my outfit very simple- just a pair of basic denim shorts and sheer white button up blouse. However, the interest of my outfit is in my accessories. 

I took a fashion cue from the hippie movement of the 1960's when I grabbed this daisy crown. Instant hippie-chic. For a tutorial on how to make your own flower crown, check out THIS post. 

Next, I chose to decorate the pocket on my blouse with a handful of various pins and buttons. I'm wearing numerous pins including a "Dressed to Kill" button, ShopWasteland "Wasted" button, Citgo pin, U.S. pin and a Rolls Royce pin. The way that the pins interact with each other- the way the colors complement each other, the way the different shapes and sizes contrast with each other, the way the different textures intensify next to each other- immediately add another area of interest (besides my flower crown) to the look. The quirky vibe emitted from pairing all of the various pins and buttons together has me falling all over this style. 

After all pins and buttons were securely pinned onto my blouse, I snatched my leopard print crossbody from my wardrobe. Although I was saving this bag to wear this year at Philadelphia University, I decided that it would look too good with my outfit not to wear it. And anyway, how could I wear an outfit without a print incorporated into it? Unheard of! At least for my outfits. I'm trying to recall the last time that I wore an outfit devoid of any print or pattern but none comes to mind. Typically, I find some sort of way to sneak a pattern into all of my looks. 

Lastly, I accessorized with a pair of classic sunglasses and slipped my feet into my favorite pair of sandals. The finishing touch of my look was a temporary red rose tattoo on my thigh. How festival-chic!
