Awake the stars ’cause they’re all around you
Wide eyes will always brighten the blue
Chase your dreams
And remember me, sweet bravery
‘Cause after all those wings will take you up so high
So bid the forest floor goodbye as you race the wind
And take to the sky” -Owl City

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Ive been trying to branch out a bit into online shopping, readers. As you may know, it’s always been a struggle for me, but there are, in fact, many finds to be found! I really like Oasap, Rue La La, Haute Look, Saks Off Fifth, and Nordstrom Rack online. If you’re more of an online shopper than an in-person shopper, it’s really easy to refine searches and “dig” for steals virtually. The only thing I have noticed is that you do need to be diligent, since many of the best finds (highest quality, lowest cost) tend to go really fast.
2) A note on suede shoes: I had an unfortunate situation during which I was washing my hands and approximately five drops of water dropped on my suede shoes. The horror. I hadn’t yet sprayed them with a suede waterproof spray, and the water stained the shoes. I was able to get the stain out with a suede brush, but suede brushes are a little tough even on suede. Note to self: even if you’re not wearing suede outdoors, spray your shoes with a spray protector! They are available in-stores and online (Amazon.com); Scotchguard and Kiwi sprays tend to get the best reviews.
Anyone else have suede care tips? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Love your posing! You look awesome 🙂 And oh the countless pairs of suede shoes I have been able to ruin…
Such fun pictures and great outfit 🙂
Love that bird shirt! I’m an avid online shopper, I hate digging but I’m very diligent about returning things I don’t want! That is very important because a lot of the time, I order multiple colors and sizes.
those shoes!!! ❤ definitely agree, spraying your shoes (and unwashable clothes) with waterproof coating is worth doing even when you only wear them indoors. i'm glad you managed to save them though!
Love your outfit and all the details 🙂 This look is very romantic
Superhero pose in first photo brings the outfit to a whole new level. Swooping in to save the day in heels and a sassy gathered skirt! 🙂 xo
