Skulls & Snakes

I think I may have (finally) found my favorite time of the day to take photos. Sometime around 7 in the evening is the most comfortable for both my photographer (thanks, CC!) and myself, plus we don't have to worry about awkward shadow photobombs.

Today I wanted to pull items from my closet that were long overdue for some extra loving. As a girl who has too much to wear and never enough occasions/time to wear them all, I always find myself struggling to fully utilize all the pieces in my wardrobe. This blog is one of my motivators to take those items out to play!

Clothing: Scalloped blouse- eBay, $4.95 updated listing here, Pink shorts- Express
Accessories: Necklace- from HK trip, Wrap around snake bracelet- NYC street vendor, Earrings- Chanel CC studs (read about my purchase here), Skull knuckle clutch- from HK trip, splurge here

Do you ever "rotate" purses/shoes? Does it depend on what you're wearing or do you do it every so often just for some change? Are there items in your closet you wish you wore more?

Oh gosh! You read my mind! I have exactly the same problem!!! Too much stuff, too little occasion! I recently figured out I need to wear this stuff... with no particular occasion HA! :) That means wearing more heels - ME LOVE! :D
You look so cute and you are so pretty! :) I love the skulls combined with sweet colors! Great idea! I also do it sometimes! :)

I love that snake arm band and those shoes! And absolutely - I have a pretty massive wardrobe because I am a compulsive hoarder and try to throw away/donate as little as possible so every so often I'll pick out a piece I never wear and purposely build a outfit around it so it gets to see the sunlight.

Hi, thanks for visiting my food blog. Sorry for the late reply! I had some issues w/ uploading my pictures, but I just haven't gotten around to fixing that yet, because I'm focusing on something more important right now (cleaning up my home lol). & I still have my girly stuff blog on http://shortandsweetjoy.blogspot.com/, so thanks for asking!!

To answer your question, I rotate my shoes all the time, to make them 'worth the money' lol, depending on weather, what I'm wearing, my need for foot comfort for the day.
I wish I rotated my purses more often, but it requires taking stuff out, some overall organization. I need one of those Purseket things.

Great outfit post by the way!
