flowers and tassels

Today I was feeling bold with my outfit. I have had these two items just sitting in my closet waiting to be worn, and today was finally the day I put them on! Together! This dress is a little out of my comfort zone, but I bought it on a whim from H&M because it was on sale, and who doesn’t like a good deal!! This fifty dollar dress was only fifteen dollars! It has a V-neck in the front, so I turned it around and wore it backwards. This is something that I LOVE doing because it makes it so much easier to style a hijab without worrying about any chest area showing. The statement necklace that I’m wearing a beautiful tassel one from Francesca’s. Right when I saw this necklace I knew I wanted to have it!! However, I had some difficulty trying to style it. The necklace is a little longer, which I usually like, but it wasn’t laying right on my chest. My mom gave me really good advice, and that was to double the chain around my neck twice, kind of like a choker. It made the necklace move up higher and it was comfortable to wear too! Mixing patterns isn’t something that I always do, but I thought the color of the tassels really complimented the dress’s flower, and decided to put them together. Everything else I wore was really neutral, with navy shoes, dark jeans, and a white cardigan. I think this helped even out my outfit so that it wasn’t too overpowering. Even though it’s a little different, I felt comfortable the entire day.
