Outfit: Summer Down South + Giveaway

July 23, 2011

Giveaway, Outfits

This is what North Carolina looks like:

Very, very green. This isn’t even in the country; it’s right next to a cafe off Franklin St., one of the main commercial streets in Chapel Hill. North Carolina is also very hot, and very humid. Right before my friend and I started taking these photos I reflexively reached for my Tarte lipgloss crayon, but when I opened it, it poured out. My lipgloss melted down to liquid in the sun!

(This is me telling my friend: take a picture from here, up)

Top: Gap
Skirt: BellJar
Belt: Club Monaco
Sandals: Corso Como
Ring: Kate Spade
Bracelets: Kate Spade, Banana Republic, Bloomingdale’s
Earrings: c/o Sheyna

    I love it all. I went to Sheyna’s site but I’m on my phone so I’ll look at the jewelry at home to enter. What I saw is all very beautiful.

    It’s all very beautiful. This piece is probably where I’d start, though my wish list is long already… http://www.sheyna.com/jewelry/shop/designer/cat031/serenity/5141/ – ruthlessplumae {at} gmail {dot} com
