Because of the gloomy weather earlier today (so shocking for SoCal!), I decided to go for a colorless outfit. Whether always have an effect on what I wear. Because of all the clouds, I went with a basic palette of white, gray, and navy, what you would typically call neutral colors. Though the colors were bland, I tried jazzing up my outfit with bird prints and lace-trimmed pieces, such as the white blouse I was wearing. To tie off my entire look, I added this beautiful watch necklace on of my friends gave me for my birthday. This necklace instantly became one of my favorite pieces the moment I received it. I've been wanting this since forever. Thank you, Stephanie!

However, I was still intrigued by the pretty little number and was determined to make this dress presentable for the outside world. When I first threw on the dress, it ran a little too big on me. The front sagged down quite a lot due to the fact that I have no chest. To solve this problem, I wore a white collared blouse underneath. Peter Pan collars are my solution to everything. They make all outfits look instantly adorable! My outfit with the blouse underneath still wasn't enough. There was no silhouette to the dress; the dress was just a shapeless blob that flowed over everything, hence making it look like a night gown. So, I grabbed my skinny black belt to define some signs of a waist. I tugged some of the fabric over the belt to make the outfit look a little more carefree (because that's the way I like things!) instead of stiffly put together.
And voila! My night gown-looking dress instantly became a cute outfit (at least to my eyes) with the help of a blouse and a belt. Sometimes, pieces do not look instantly beautiful until you accessorize them. Oh, what would the world be with no accessories? This outfit made it onto my list of all-time favorites.
Sorry about the blurry pictures. I don't know why my camera was so out of focus.
Walking into the science center.
Just look at that gorgeous roof!
Snap, snap, snap!
The family room is so colorful!
I think this wall was my favorite part.
