Cherry Bomb

TOP:Le Bomb Shop CHERRY SHORTS:Le Bomb Shop SOCKS: Meadham Kirchhoff x Topshop
SHOES: Kohls (old, similar) BRACELET/HAIR TIE: Gift from MarlenaPURSE:Choies

So I *might* have gone a little overboard with the fruit pieces in this outfit, but I couldn't help it - super kitschy outfits are kind of my thing! When I put this on, I was reminded of 70s does 50s (think Grease) and made me want to roller skate to Blow by Beyonce!

My love affair with novelty fruit shorts continues thanks to one of my favorite stores for all things retro inspired and cute - Le Bomb Shop! ♡ The little cherry print on this pair is simply too darling and surprisingly versatile - I'm smitten with them paired with this off the shoulder top!


The collection Meadham Kirchhoff released for Topshop last December was an absolute dream come true, and I managed to snag these cherry socks before they went out of stock! It's fun to be able to say I *technically* own something by my favorite fashion label - they don't necessarily need to know it's just a pair of socks…! ♥

  21. I love this super cute outfit! Doesn't Kohl's seem to carry some mysteriously awesome shoes? Or is it just me? I just got some bronze-y, metallic penny loafers from there and they are my new favorites!
