Dressed for: Going Long

Already Pretty outfit featuring long duster cardigan, burgundy jeans, Clarks booties, long pendant necklace

This cardigan is an oldie but a goody. More of a duster than a boyfriend, it’s super long which makes it feel a little dramatic and tougher to style than some of my shorter long cardigans. But it felt just right with these (birthday!) burgundy jeans and my long charm pendant. A fun mix of subdued shades for weekend rompings.

Anyone else do duster cardigans? Apparently they’re quite trendy right now, though I can’t say I’ve seen loads of them in action …

How could I NOT post this outfit, in light of our look at military dressing influences earlier this week? The moto vest may hint at my hidden desire to join the Hell’s Angels, but the olive green shirt and camo-print scarf are all army. Eeesh. Kinda hilarious, really. I am terrified of motorcycles and get winded after running for a block. No biker gang or armed force in their right mind would ever take me. Then again, I adore my tulle skirt and would make any actual ballerina choke on her own laughter with my dance moves.

Do you dress for personas far from your own real life? Which are your favorites? Rocker? Dancer? Lady who lunches? Bombshell? Do tell!

Already Pretty outfit featuring plaid scarf, navy sweater, olive green pleated skirt, Frye Vera Slouch boots

Boots – Frye Vera Slouch

I’ve determined that my ideal scarf style is large, rectangular, and very thin/lightweight. All of my favorite and most-worn scarves have these traits in common. Husband Mike made fun of me when I bought five plaid scarves from the same souvenir shop on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, but he has since complimented me on several of them. SO I WIN.

Sidenote: Lauren and I had a laugh about two points of language difference when we met up in Leith. She has been in Britain long enough that when she hears people talk about “pants,” she giggles. In the UK, pants are underpants, trousers are outer-pants. HM and I, on the other hand, giggled every time we had to ask someone where the toilets were. We’re used to restrooms and bathrooms, and were told that “loo” is actually a fairly posh way to go. In the UK, “toilets” refers to the room not just the apparatus, of course, but we still felt like third-graders every time we asked.
