TOP: c/o SheInside (worn backwards) BRALET: Charlotte Russe
SKIRT: c/o Lashes of London SHOES: ASOS (sold out; similar)

HELLOOOO!!! It seemed like for the last couple weeks, me and my family have had the worst luck - it was like one bad thing after another kept happening...! 。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。 Thankfully, things seem to be looking up (knock on wood) and I'm BACK! I've missed you all so much!

I was utterly over the moon when Lashes of London, a U.K. based brand, contacted me about reviewing one of their pieces!

The ornate metallic lace overlay on this skirt is absolutely gorgeous! I love the combination of creamy lilac and metallic gold - a match made in heaven! ♡ I paired it with this kitty crop top from SheInside - only worn backwards to show off the lacey back!

Underneath the lace crop top I'm wearing a blue gingham bralet that was a mere $5 on sale at Charlotte Russe! It's perfect for wearing in the summer heat, which has been sweltering, especially since we don't have any air conditioning ;_;

It was particularly hot the day these pictures were taken! The sun kept getting in my eyes, thus the squinting/looking down! u__u

Meanwhile, I am super excited to say I have several posts queued up - including one of the best giveaways yet, a DIY of these watermelon shorts, makeup reviews, and more outfits! (⌒▽⌒)☆ See you then! ♡♡♡

P.S. Does anybody recognize which famous Sci-Fi movie soundtrack the title of this post comes from? ;)

  1. I never heard of Lashes of London before, but their clothes are so cute! I'll have to check to see if they deliver to the US.

  41. Well, I don't get the sci-fi reference but I still totally love this outfit! It's so great when a brand wants you to review something and they totally get your style. They nailed it!

    Sorry about the bad luck. But it can't last forever - your luck will change soon!

  42. Beautiful dress! I love your little blue cami top underneath. Loving the colour of your hair at the moment! Like a ripe peach :) Here's to hoping August will just flip right around for you and be amazing!

  43. Kailey! You tease! That gingham top is the most perfect thing ever and it's all sold out :'( Heheh, you look amazing though! Your hair! It's just getting prettier and prettier - I don't know how you're doing it! Also, Blade Runner? I love that movie so, so much.

  44. Oh girl, you look so lovely <3 I am wondering how you keep your skin so white- it is amazing. With skin so white you look fabulous with pink hair. I'd love to have pink hair but I look like a pig so bye bye pastel hair... so I will just keep looking on you.
