day nine. 80's Black and White in the Corn





My mom and I quick stopped to snap some pics in our corn and weeds. As a weed scientist I loath and adore this corn. Its so odd for me to see weedy corn but I kind of like having all the weeds..it reminds me of the control plots and doing research! (Had a plant dork moment there sorry!). 
I love this black and white top its really light and flowy and super 80's but i think by pairing it with some more modern shorts (or jeans soon here) it really makes it look like something you can find at Forever 21 or H&M. Some people might think this is too much. I get that.  I take a lot of fashion risks....its just my style! For others this may be a great top to alter, turn into a tank or alter the sleeves but i love the whole thing!








At this point the shorts were almost falling off of me! I have lost a lot of weight since i bought them and they tend to get baggy after i wear them for a bit! 









The ring i wore for this was handmade by a lady in Texas. She doesn't have an Etsy shop up yet but once she does I will post about it. She makes some awesome rings.








These earrings are from my mom's jewelry box. I love the feathers!
