In case you’re wondering why I look extremely different in this new set of photos, I’d like to put the blame on my botched eyeliner experiment that somehow played up my Asian roots. Note to self: Never again.
I’m obsessed with two things in this photo… first, my Papaya print top from Neon Island, and then my customized locket from Beyond Lockets.
Let me start with my top… normally, I’m not one for bold, quirky, and kitschy prints. I’ve always been conservative on the print front, except for that one time I wore a unicorn sweater. However, when I saw Neon Island’s hand-painted prints (yes, they make their own prints), I fell in love with their set! I was initially all for the Pineapple and Kiwi print but I liked how soothing the Papaya print was (I mistook them for Melons initially). For those who want to up school/work garb, check out Neon Island for the perfect mix of casual prints in classic and flattering cuts.
Next, my pretty locket–it’s been a hit to friends and colleagues who’ve seen it. Beyond Lockets offered to customize me a locket necklace. I was never fond of lockets–I think I overdid them back in college but the fact that I could customize one and add charms appealed so much to me. My only request from them was to keep it in a thin chain, which they told me was their practice. So I went cray on all the available charms in their catalog–depending on the size of your locket, you can choose up to 10! I specifically chose the symbols that meant something to me–I had a flamingo somewhere there, the infinity symbol, the cross, the diamond, the “Love” symbol, and a lot more!
