The Edge-y Feminine OOTD

This is the type of casual, put together outfit that I like to throw on for the weekends. Weekends are my chance to express my style without any professional work clothing restrictions.

Typically, I utilize a black skirt as the base of my outfit and alternate the other layers accordingly to my mood.

In this particular outfit, I love how the pink ruffled camisole pairs with the soft motto jacket and edge-y cut out booties. The pairing creates for a unique and unexpected outfit.
