day twelve. turquoise striped silk and black cutoff shorts

here is a sneak peak into the timeline of this blog! This was Friday the first day of sidewalk sales! It was very mild out but I knew i would be running around so i wore this silk blend top and cutoff black shorts to keep comfy. I was very comfy! 

we were right by the Burton sample tent. Those guys were the epitome of snowboard culture. I loved chatting with them all day they were funny. 

gotta keep it light and fun for the craziest days in Grand Haven retail! 

my shoes are from Meijer. I kept getting compliments on them and then people were shocked I got them at Meijer. I got them with my mom and I actually remember getting the wrong size and dorkily taking them back. Who doesn't try on shoes. This was when i was still sucked into fast fashion. 

My necklace is the Harry Potter deathly hallows and i got it from this amazing shop on Etsy. He makes all sorts of badass movie/tv related stuff (HP, Hunger Games, Twilight, Game of Thrones etc.) and I want it all!

Chainmaille bracelet again from Hightower Chains. Check out his blog I have been helping a bit with! Other bracelet is Juicy Couture i got at Nordstroms Rack awhile back. Ring is my Grandfathers turquoise. 

Thanks to Patrick Grady one of my famed photographers for the day! 

Gotta love this sunglasses from Gliks
