OOTD | How to Pick Up Dudes. And Beads.

 Top: F21 | Pants: F21 | Heels: Nine West Booboo | Beads: wait for it... | Ring: F21

So this is how one wears beads to class on Mardi Gras when one is feeling particularly classy.
The looks I got today. It's like we work in a professional field or something. Yeesh.

Also, for some reason, I equate Mardi Gras with both beads and black and white stripes of some kind. Is this a thing or did I just make it up? Because obviously, I lied to you guys when I said yesterday my Mardi Gras outfit included feathers. It didn't. I saw this skirt and my heart went pitter patter and that's just how I get dressed.

Let the next pictures be a lesson unto you: never rush the self tanning process. Holy oompalegs!

Jacket: Black Rivet via HauteLook | Tank: TJMaxx | Skirt: F21 | Flats: Ivanka Trump Annulia | Beads: ... keep waiting... | Ring: F21 | Earrings: F21

And now, at long last, I present to you:
"How to Bring All the Boys/Mardi Gras Beads to the Yard, Sans Milkshake"

... there it is.

Try that face and report back to let me know how it goes.

OH AND HEY I'M TWENTY FIVE TODAY!
Bring on the car insurance discounts and the countdown until retirement. Amiright?!
