Twig 's thoughts:

I’m finally starting to feel like myself after being sick for almost a week, so I decided to have a relaxing shopping day with the bff!!! And it was the perfect opportunity to enter the Forever 21 contest :D It was hard to choose items to wear from Forever, but this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy!

Now let’s get down to business! I feel like I stand out in the crowd because I definitely take risks with fashion, and I try new things. But I own every outfit I wear, and I can make my own fashion decisions. I only take advice from the best of the best. I can also pull off different looks like in this case..GRANDPA CHIC!!! But on the flip side many people in my life come to me for fashion advice and I always love to give it! It’s all about pulling your look off and making it your own which I always try to do. In this outfit there’s a lot going on, but the color palette doesn’t have too much going on so it’s not overwhelming. The slight hints of color like the teal in my shorts, blue in my fedora etc offset the somewhat neutral palette. And all the items go together without being matchy matchy. But my favorite part are the socks! ;D

Woah...grandpa style is really neat! I kind of wonder what grandpas think about grandpa style (on young people). Would they be flattered or feel mocked? One day, I'll have to ask my grandpa. I'm really lovin' the vest. It looks cozy & comfy, like something you could wear when you chill by the fireplace this fall. But the way it's styled here also says, "Let's go golfing." :)

Hell yes!!! I'm so glad you decided to get that vest! It would have been a mistake not to! The socks and shoes are wicked cool. Not to mention, the shoes were one of the most successful gifts I ever got you! I also like the necklaces you paired with this. You pull off grey very well :D
