Dirty white

Taupe blazer from Forever 21 / Cream sweater from PacSun / Quilted mint bag from LuLu's / Light wash jeans from PacSun / Twisted gold necklace from Joe Fresh 

You know how people say that wearing white is a magnet for a spill? I've noticed that I do drop things on my white shirts frequently. So much so, that I'm starting to wonder if all my clothes are food-stained and gross. Maybe I'm not messier when I wear white. Maybe my other clothes are just darker so the food gets camouflaged. 

Similarly, I seem to have a thing for dropping chocolate on my jeans at awkward times. The first time, I dropped chocolate on my thigh right before standing up in front of the class to do a presentation. The second time was again on my thigh at school. Because I didn't want it to stain, I *subtly* tried to rub off the chocolate. On my thigh. Then I swear that someone was trying to talk me up as this happened. Let the record show that rubbing a spot on your thigh is never a good idea in public, not even because of food stains.

How to: Make florals less girly

Florals have been on trend for a while, but not all of us want to look like we stepped out of a soft meadow from the 50's. Yes, flowers in their essence are pretty and delicate, but with the right styling, you can strike a balance between vintage charm and modern edge.

Starting off with a super feminine floral top as an example for your base, the key is to contrast textures. Try pairing the top with some leather or distressed denim shorts from H&M. Instead of subtle accessories, try some chunkier jewelry, like stacked bracelets or a bold metal necklace. Finally, tie together the look with an ankle boot. I usually opt for classic black, but I'd even try mixing florals with this floral Dr Marten boot found at Union Jack Boots that is pretty much the epitome of edgy and pretty.
