take me on a date

I got this jacket from Asian iCandy, but when I ordered it, it was April and still rather chilly. I wasn't expecting the weather to be so nice this May, so I was a little stuck on where to wear it and how to style it. However, the material is actually rather light. 

I discovered it's perfect for spring days and perfect for a lunch date. If it was winter I would definitely take this double-breasted jacket and style it to maximum girliness, but for some reason this summer I'm moving a bit away from those types of looks. I think it makes this casual outfit pop because of the bold red colour, the adoorrable bow and the lace detailing. Lovely.








jacket from asian icandy, top, bag and shorts from forever 21, shoes from le chateau.



Also, here are some new shoes I bought. What can I say? I'm a fan of floral. I'm a fan of brogues. Best of both worlds.




&A vase I got from a thrift store. I like simplicity in my vases sometimes. I plan on filling it with tulips - maybe white or pale blue ones?

 XO.
