i know who i want to take me home.

If any of you recognize the post title, it's a lyric from Semisonic's "Closing Time." So 90s, but I'm hooked. My boyfriend & I have a big thing for 90s rock & grunge, believe me. I'm also in love with "New Low" by Middle Class Rut & "Colours" by Grouplove.

Anyways, this will be my last outfit post for a week or so, because I'm going on vacation to the Outer Banks! I'm really excited. And while I'm there I'll be turning 21! Since I won't be home I had an early celebration with my parents. I can't believe I'm almost 21 already, so weird. Anyways, here is what I wore today. Apologies about the photos—I know they're not my best, but I took them very quickly.

Sidenote: I'm not wearing any makeup in these because I can't wear makeup for a week or so, dermatologist's orders!

DIY Flower Crown made by me from Bleubird Vintage's tutorial!

Flower crown: made by me
Pearls: Tiffany's, 21st birthday gift!
Blouse: Old Navy
Skirt: Pac Sun
Tights: Express
Boots: shop in Oxford
Clutch (shown below): gift

I can't tell you guys how shocked I was to receive a blue box from Tiffany's! And with these beautiful freshwater pearls inside! I have grown up jewelry now!

I made the flower crown the other day, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I used dogwoods & cherry blossoms, some of my favorite flowers. What DIYs have you guys done lately? Have you made a flower crown?
