Random Outfit Roundup: July

Hot pink tee, American Apparel via Yque White skirt, Banana Republic Orange pumps, Perlina Celebrity via Endless Necklace, Patina years and years ago

I’ve been wanting to do hot pink and orange together since spring, but got hung up on the fact that I didn’t have a pink top that went with my orange bottoms, or vice versa. Then, PING! I realized I could just throw some white into the mix.

These orange pumps are new and they are astoundingly comfy. First day out, walked all over the damn place, didn’t feel a thing.

White Blazer, Ann Taylor Loft White tank, Esprit Denim pencil skirt, thrifted Gray platforms, Kenneth Cole Rocky Canyon Chalk turquoise necklace, a street vendor in SF

I wore this to HM’s gallery opening this month. I once described these shoes as “surprisingly comfortable” to Trinknitty. She scoffed. And after standing around a gallery for two hours in them I hear what she’s saying.

Dress Margaret Mousley via Lizze Dansko Nylas Straw bag thrifted Sunnies, Miu Miu Chain bracelet, made by me

On location in scenic Hudson, Wisconsin, in a dress I’d bought the day before and couldn’t WAIT to wear. Apparently Lizze has been in business for three years, but I’d never even seen this tiny, St. Paul boutique before. This dress is handmade from Marimekko cloth and set me back a whopping $29. Such love!

Blazer, J.Crew Grey dress, thrifted Red belt, thrifted Chunky chain, thrifted at Abigail Page Antique Mall (the day the floral dress got worn, in fact!) Red shoes, a gift from K.Line

As promised, I finally worked these wonderful shoes that K.Line generously bestowed upon me LAST FALL into an outfit! They’re just as comfy as they are cute, and I was well pleased with how this outfit turned out. Even if the belt is a little matchy-matchy, how could I resist pairing two items that feature both red patent and silver hardware?

Random Outfit Roundup: June, Part I

Click to zoom, kittens. And let me know if I have anything in my teeth …

Yellow houndstooth blazer, Futurelint‘s Etsy shop White tee, American Apparel Khaki high-waist skirt, Old Navy Patent magenta pumps, Nine West Slinky belt, thrifted

I had been eyeing this blazer on Futurelint’s Etsy for some time, and when I stopped by her vintage/garage sale a few weeks back and it was still available, I snapped it right up. The blazer buttons asymmetrically, a detail that I just love, but unfortunately loves me not: I look positively linebackerish. Unbuttoned, however, I think it looks totally adorable.

I felt very Mad Men putting this outfit together, but it may err more on the side of 80s glam … I’m good with either.
