Happy Accidents

The best kind of outfits seem to be happy accidents. They pull together pieces from different shops, were bought years apart, and yet seem meant to be worn all together. It can take me forever to dress, because I just start pulling things instinctively. It is rare for me to have an exact picture in mind, which often leads to a pile of discarded extras and accessories on the floor. The end result though, can feel as nicely composed as this outfit...

Outfit details: blazer- H&M, scarf- YarnOverMovement, dress- Betsey Johnson via Gilt, tights- Walmart, shoes- Seychelles via Weardrobe Conference

  6. I love this outfit, it has to be one of my favourites of yours. It just goes so nicely! I love how you always have a different scenery in your pictures :)

    I know this sounds like a stupid thing to ask but how do you get all your pictures the same size without them looking pulled or anything? It never works for me :)
