Hands Down Hippie

Cardigan: $29.50  Purchased from Forever 21
The main reason I bought this crocheted cardigan was because I was inspired by all those cute Japanese girls who wear sweaters such as these in their fashion magazines! You can layer it over girly floral dresses, or simply wear it over a tank top and denim cutoffs. This cardigan is completely versatile, and the 'fall-off-the shoulder' look is fun as well.

Headpiece: $4.99  Purchased from Claire's Accessories
I am usually weary about wearing headpieces such as these, simply because they are a bit fussy and tends to shift with every movement of your head. But the look is perfect for summer, and I like the combination of the turquoise beading with the peacock feathers.

Boots: $6.99  Purchased from Value Village
Label: Leather Uppers
One of my scores from Value Village on their 50% off days. When I first tried these boots on, they were a little snug. But I really liked the cognac colour of them, as well as the built-in socks look (I've washed them thoroughly by the way!). While I was debating whether or not to purchase them in the lineup, I overheard 2 girls behind me discussing if they should pay me for them! That was all the affirmation I needed to keep them for myself! Though I COULD have made a few bucks instead of spending it.....

Tank Top: $22  Purchased from American Apparel
I have this tank top in 4 other colours (as seen in Post: 'Lovin' the Levis'). But when I like something, especially staple items like tank tops, I usually end up buying several at a time :p

Purse: $19.99  Purchased from Value Village
Yes, I know that $20 is pretty hefty for a bag from Value Village, but I really like it! I've always wanted a genuine Mexican leather handbag and this one seems pretty authentic. Am I sure? No. But who would duplicate a knock off version of this? Come to think of it, the price of the purse would've probably been cheaper if I had actually purchased it in Mexico. Oh well, perhaps on my next getaway :)

Shorts: $21.90
Purchased from Forever 21
Faded denim shorts. Love it!
