Old school charm

Caramel blazer from Le Chateau / Pink sweater & structured bag from Forever 21 / Pleated skirt from TJ Maxx / Combat boots 

A few weeks ago, I was dabbling with the idea of dying my hair a funky colour to embrace my rebel side. Well, this just in: I don't have a rebel side. To commute to work, I have to drive to the bus stop. But yesterday, the parking lot was full. My workplace has a policy where you have to buy coffee for the office if you're late on Tuesday. So I really didn't want to be late. Which is why I recklessly parked in a commercial plaza. Risking a parking ticket? Fine, whatever! Risking a $50 ticket is totally worth not buying $15 worth of coffee! Yeah, that's pretty much when common sense started sinking in. And for the rest of the day, I was freaking out internally with a lumpy feeling in my stomach from my fear and guilt of illegally parking. I suppose I do have *a bit* of a rebel side...I mean, I did duck out of work 10 minutes early because I was that anxious to see my car.

  13. Hello Sabrina! Loved your story about not wanting to get late to work and parking illegally:-) It put a smile on my face. Yes, we all have an alter ego inside us, sometimes two or three. On another note, I really like you look today. Love the mix of sweet, girly and edgy. It is spot on. Thanks for visiting my blog. xoxo, Jeannette

  14. Love your story :) I'm guessing you didn't get the ticket? I got three just last week! But they were very cheap thankfully. Love this look and I still think you would look great with a crazy hair color!

  24. Ohh my gosh this look is SO beautiful on you! Also the way that the light captures your hair is just so perfect! Hehe I couldn't help but giggle reading your post--I know what you mean, sometimes I feel like I'm just a bit more rebellious/a risk-taker than it actually seems that I am. Your hair color looks perfect on you right now, by the way! c;

  26. Well you look beautiful with or without the crazy hair so I say you do what feels right! I adore this outfit, the neutrals and the skirt paired with the combat boots are an amazing combo (they make me want to wear my combat boots more often now)! Also love that coat!
    Haha, my friend also parks somewhat illegally at her dad's old workplace and if they catch her, they really aren't the nicest-- so she totally feels that anxiety when she has to come back to her car haha.

  29. I love the combination of the nudes and the black boots, it makes this otherwise formal outfit very edgy. Your hair would look amazing with any of those pastel colors, and even now it looks great, I say take the risk if you really want to. You definitely earned the rebel badge when you parked illegally!

  32. Your outfit looks great and well done on the chic TKMaxx find - I love finding gems there! This post made me laugh quite a lot, I can join you in not having a rebel side and if one ever emerges, I find myself crippled with anxiety over what the repercussions may be.. all the same, I'm so intrigued - did you get a ticket?!
