Hot child in the city

When I was rustling through my closet to find something to wear that wouldn’t melt off my body, I found this tank from h&m and wanted to make it work. I first put it on as a top and just wasn’t feeling its flowy nature. I decided to wear it as a skirt as I have done something previously here. I really wanted to go for a Carrie-esque look and decided to layer on two necklaces, and throw my hair in that signature top knot. Since I have not been able to wear any eye makeup due to eye irritations, i wanted to still add a splash of color in my face so lipstick was the perfect choice. My backyard is bursting with growth and sometimes its the perfect backdrop for a photo. We are growing every kind of herb you can imagine as well as 2 tomato plants. NOM! I see many herb omlettes in my future. Happy Monday!!!

    Michelle - Agree the top would’ve hidden your sexy curves, it looks much better as a skirt. I’m growing herbs too … be sure to grow some mint for mojitos!ReplyCancel
