SWEATER: Thrifted COLLAR: River Island via Ebay NECKLACE: c/o I Love Crafty SKIRT: c/o Dahlia
TIGHTS: c/o Wholesale Dress SHOES: Kohls (similar)

Hello! I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day! ♡ Yesterday I took advantage of the warmer weather to get some pictures of this outfit - in front of an abandoned trailer near my mom's favorite coffee shop no less!

This mirrored mermaid necklace was a wonderful gift from Laura of I Love Crafty - and the second I Love Crafty piece I have been fortunate enough to review! I'm floored by how professional, adorable, and detailed her pieces are! This is part of her brand new collection, Ahoy Sailor, which just launched today on her etsy! Isn't it adorable? Just perfect for a mermaid lover such as myself! And Laura is offering Mermaidens readers 15% off your purchase with the code "MERMAIDENSLOVE"! ♡

This sequined cream sweater was a thrifted find (for only $3! *_*), and I finally found this pink collar on eBay after pining for it after I saw Charlotte from Thoughts from Another Kook wearing one!

And finally, can you believe this skirt!? One of my favorite UK stores, Dahlia, was sweet enough to send it to me! The laser cut eyelet detailing is almost too divine for words - and I'm so in love with the silhouette of skater skirts! I'm already planning more outfits centered around it *_* Dahlia is actually having a giveaway where you can win an entire season of Dahlia clothing - you can find more details here!

Lately I have been imagining up some dream dresses and sketching them out - and I was thinking about turning them into illustrations and sharing them on here! Would that be something that you guys would be interested in seeing? Let me know ♡ Here's hoping you all have a wonderful weekend!

♡,
Kailey

  7. I would love to see the lovely illustrations you'd come up with if they're even half as cute as your outfit posts. Of course I'm a bit biased since I illustrate myself but so what. And that pink collar is adorable--great find.

  27. Some weeks ago i bought a cardigan (In a lolita clothes shop, haha) with a detachable furry collar who makes the same effect. I love it so much! <3 I bougth it on an creamy colour because I think that pinks will make a strage effect with my hait but now i see the pink collar on you and find it so adorable <3
