Next we can being looking at messenger bags, not compulsory but a good addition to add extra detail if you want to. Fancy creating this messenger bag on your own? All you’ll need is a cheap green messenger bag from the thrift store paired with heart, floral and bear embellishments.

Don’t forget to style your hair accordingly tied into two buns with bangs going either side of your head, hair color doesn’t really matter for this as people can already guess who you are from the attire but if you want to be completely accurate dye your hair brown so you don’t throw people off the scent.
