wear it // thirty-five
This outfit is full of ‘conversation starters’; the beaded flamingos holding all my things, the rhinoceros peeking out from behind a red blazer, and the mint pouf pinned ever-so-strategically to my lapel. Separately these are some of my most favorite items – together, I think they make a killer combo.
Admittedly, the so-called ‘conversation starters’ are really just pieces i find interesting, and in some cases other people do to! There’s no better place to wear said ‘conversation starters’ than a coffee shop full of people just sitting around chatting. People love to touch the beaded clutch, or the mint pouf (hey there buddy, watch where those hands are going!), or comment on a weird shirt. And just like that, you’ve sparked a conversation!
