This outfit was partly inspired by this pin on Pinterest. Never had mustard and mint looked SO GOOD. So, I tried it today. And I quite liked it.
Did you see this sweet origami crane brooch? I'm kind of in love with it. It's just so delicate and I love the light wood color. Not to mention, I think origami cranes are the coolest thing, EVER. After receiving this brooch in the mail, I took it upon myself to actually try to make an origami crane. Guys, it's hard. It takes a lot of precision and care, and I'm pretty sure the first (and only) three I attempted ended up in the trash can. (Fast forward to a week later, when I gave my 11-year-old students origami paper. Like lightning, they immediately started folding and folding, and in 20 seconds flat, made perfect origami cranes. Needless to say, I was impressed.)
