I saw a top with mermaid-style shells on the chest somewhere on the internet a while ago, and I couldn’t resist making my own. I love the idea of being a mermaid, and my friends always joke that I have mermaid hair, so it seemed pretty appropriate to have a mermaid top, too! I paired the top with these shorts because I felt that the navy pinstripe fitted in nicely with the nautical theme, as well as the plaited rope belt. I got this bracelet from my mom, although I think I’d have preferred one of those fork bracelets – maybe I could’ve brushed my hair with it, like Ariel in the little mermaid.
