LoveBrownSugar Chic: Platforms & Playgrounds

So all my other style posts thus far have been kind of light, airy and romantic. I decided to get a little edgy this week. We went to the playground for this one and to say the least, I had a blast! 

This is more of an accessories moment for me. This pic pretty much inspired the title "Platforms and Playgrounds". I was in love with fingerless gloves this winter (a la Rihanna) and these lace-up booties were my winter staple. Sidenote: I wish I could show you pics of the little kids staring at me during this shoot haha... 

 These lovely shades were given to me by my faves Coco & Breezy. If you haven't heard about these two - get in the know and read my post about them. They make amazing eyewear and I was gifted this pair during their Fall/Winter 2010 show.

It was love at first sight with this bubble skirt. Spotted it at H&M a while back and I wore it for my bday in January. I'm also in love with this top. Exaggerated shoulders baby - why did they ever go out of style? 

According to my photography class, these sun spots are actually errors and/or flaws. I quite like them. I think they give the photo character. Makes me look shady. Even though I'm not...it's fun to look like I am.

Don't ask me why I grabbed this "Speed Limit" sign. I couldn't give you an answer. There's no symbolism in the number 25. I'm in fact not 25 years old nor did I take this picture on the 25th day of the month. Random, I know...

Till next time! The next shoot won't be so edgy. But it's nice to get out of your element every once in a while, right? 

Top & Skirt: H&M, Boxing Gloves: Everlast, Sunglasses: Coco & Breezy, Shoes: Steve Madden
