Flower power


Mini Mint

Hiya! It’s me, back at it again with the crazy pictures of myself… A thing most girls think when deciding on an outfit for a night out that they can’t wear floral because they feel it is “too girly” I’ll throw my hands up and admit this as well, cause when you’re out in a nightclub you want to be seen as “sexy” so we all go for the outfits that are black and tight!
