Persunmall: Business-like with a touch of Retro

Hi guys!

So I don't normally schedule an outfit post on a Sunday, but I guess there's always a first time for everything, right?

I titled this outfit "business-like" because I feel like it gives off a business woman vibe, don't you think? (Minus the shorts, of course. Haha.)

I love pairing solid white linen tops with bright colors.
I think it's the best way to liven up the whole look. 
In this case, I have neon green and coral as my two pop of colors.

My white linen top is from H&M (it's actually super duper long).
And I tucked it into my Forever 21 neon green high-waist cotton shorts.
My favorite part about this shorts are button detailing on each side. 

I kept it low-key in the accessories department.
As you guys can see, I went sans bangs (it was way too hot for it) and I tied a floral headband around my head for a touch of girly-ness.
For earrings, I wore my clip-on emerald stud earrings from Forever 21.
I also had my usual and never-ending arm candy, which consists of my white Geneva watch, 2 pink stretchy bracelets from H&M, and a brown bracelet.

My coral bag is actually form I really LOVE it!
I will be doing a separate post on it, so this could be like a little sneak peek. ;)


Now, for the main star of this post...

Made of PU leather.
Unique shape and style.
3 cm heel height.

When I saw these shoes at Persunmall, I literally fell in love.
I really liked how different and unique it looked among all the other flats.
I've never owned anything like it, so I think that's part of the reason why I was drawn to it.
The size that I ordered was slightly too small for my feet (my mistake), so it did start to hurt after a while, especially in the back part.
I made my sister try it on and it fit her perfectly, so I think I'll let her have it. She'll get more use out of it.

But overall, I really liked them.
It has a vintage/retro vibe and you guys know how much I love that.
I just wish that I got it a size bigger. :/

How's your weekend going?
