I'm kind of excited to share my first outfit post with you!
Truthfully, I don't know how often this is going to happen,
but I'm hoping at least once a week.
I forget which days I wore each of these things.
It was such an insaaanely crazy week.
Later on this week I'll share some photos.
Sweater: Old Navy outlet
Hoodie: Express, thrifted
Jeans: Charlotte Russe
Boots: Old Navy, swapped
Necklace: my mother's
I desperately need a new pair of jeans.. Why are jeans so hard to shop for???
That tribal printed hoodie was a sweet find from Salvation Army. My friend makes fun of it, but ya know? I hated the 90s trend at first. Hated it. Something about it has really caught on, I must say. And I wish I had gotten a better shot of both the necklace and the boots. I get so many compliments on the necklace and I wish I could say where my mom got it but I just don't know, and she doesn't remember. The boots were one of the best swap finds ever. Sadly after wearing them to work pretty much every day, I think they're pretty spent.
(How could I not post this one with my bird on my head? It's his favorite perch.
And no I have never gotten pooped on while he's been up there! :) )
Sweater: Gap, thrifted
V neck: F21
Belt: Old Navy outlet
Skirt: Lord & Taylor via Alexis Grace Consignement
Flats: Old Navy
(Bird: Muchachon, cockatiel)..hehe
I can't tell how I like the red shoes, but in general I think sandals would work best with this skirt. Such an amazing find at Alexis Grace. I just love it. It's a little big for me, but I like how the length turns out as a result. I love the gray on gray on gray. I know for sure that I was inspired by an image on The Sartorialist but I can't really remember which one, other than that it was in the autumn. I chose no jewelry on purpose, which some may say is crazy given my collection (which is way overboard!). I just think it didn't need any. It was just right as it was, and any jewelry at all would have made it too busy.
What do you think?
I also need to add that I'm not a total hippie even though I have a large tapestry hanging on the living room wall. I just love India and happen to have dreads, okaaaay?
(I just had to say that because I'm so often stereotyped.)
Do you have any characteristics that make you the victim of stereotyping as well?
How does it make you feel? How do you respond to it?
I'd love to know!
