I love the boho feeling of today's outfit! The print of the top is very interesting and unique looking. Plus, I'm wearing pants, which most of you know is very very rare for me.

But the best part of this outfit is definitely the vintage butterfly necklace. My brother who is visiting us from Spain (he lives over there) gave it to me. The butterfly is actually made of paper from the 20's, how cool is that?! All I know is that it reminds me of my brother everytime I see it, so its super duper special!

Do you have an item that reminds you of a special someone? Do you feel more special when you wear it?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this brown top:

  6. You look FANTASTIC in skinny jeans! You look fabulous in skirts but the skinny jean is definitely a great look for you too.

    What a great top! I really like the ruffled hem at the bottom.

    I have a necklace with a tiny pink pacifier charm. My mom bought it for me as a gift "from" my daughter when I was still pregnant. I wore it during my whole pregnancy, every single day. Maybe I should bring it out again. :)

  7. The top is amazing! I love all the colors together and the ruffle at the bottom. I love it that you borrowed the skinny jeans from your mom - how fun is that?! My mom and I had a brief period of time in my very late teens when we would wear the same pants.

    I really like the wood bangle. It seems like a unique and versatile piece!

    The butterfly necklace is so cool! I love unique accessories, and what a neat story. Your brother has a good eye for gifts. It will bless your sister in law someday, I'm sure. :)

  8. Great outfit and top. Love how it really makes your copper colored hair stand out. That special gift from your brother is soooo cool and unique. You should wear skinny jeans more often since they are very flattering even though they are a bit hot for the tropics. It is good to change things up from our normal wardrobe choices. It makes for interesting fashion statements.
