A few weeks ago my roommate Aley, who is also a blogger, told me she had a professional camera and that if I ever wanted her to take photos of me for lookinthemirah to let her know. That was so nice of her; she’s dope for that and of course I took her up on her kind offer! She is well aware that the struggle gets real sometimes when you’re at work with the cutest outfit on, with a good mirror no where in sight. We did a cute, fun, little photo shoot in our living room after work. The balloons are from my best friend’s birthday a few weeks. They still had air in them so we improvised and used them a props; how creative?
My rug is actually a DIY rug that I did myself. Since I work in the Fashion District, everyday I walk by at least ten different fabric stores. One day I decided to stop in one and buy this white fabric. I always dreamed of having a white shaggy rug in my living; BOOM, now look me! I got the carpet backing from Target, so the fabric won’t slide around the floor; it holds in place.
I honestly have no idea what made me put this outfit together. A good possibility is that I haven’t worn this top or pants in a while. I know my pants probably look white but they are a really, really soft pink. This look was something so simple, that you could wear to work. Below are the details of my look:
White Collared Button Down – ASOS
Soft Pink Pants – H&M
Sneakers – Hello Kitty Vans
Pearl Necklace – King of Prussia Mall
Pearl Earrings – H&M
Bracelets – Alex & Ani and others were gifts
Hair – Box Braids done by yours truly
