Ukrainian Gypsy













Occasion:

I wore this outfit during my last week of school and totally forgot about these outfit pics on D's nice camera.

Funny story about this outfit: During our lunch break a bunch of us decided to walk to 72nd Street to Soom Soom to get food. I had brought my lunch that day, but needed the break from sitting and it was a gorgeous day so I decided to tag along for the walk. As we were approaching Soom Soom, S and I were talking about her upcoming trip to Europe and a woman stopped us as we were walking into the restaurant and asked us if we were in costume. (S was wearing a bright red dress and cute little red cap, so we were definitely color coordinated). We smiled a bit uncomfortably and said no and she proceeded to tell us that we looked like "Ukrainian Gypsies". We definitely didn't know how to respond to that so we smiled, turned around and walked into the restaurant rolling our eyes a bit! It was very weird!

This was my first real attempt at color blocking, and I am not sure if it was a success after being called a ukrainian gypsy. Maybe my next try will be better:) I thrifted this cute skirt and decided to pair it with my bright orange cardi. Isn't the scallop detail on the skirt so cute? Since it is a lot of bold color, I opted for the white ruffle tank and used bright accessories such as this tribal necklace and multicolored silk scarf to tie the ensemble together. Sunnies were a must that day!
