One thing I have really enjoyed about starting this blog is that it has encouraged me to venture in to the darkest reaches of my closet. I am way more motivated to get a little out of my normal comfort zone of oversized sweaters, and skinny jeans. Which isn’t to say that I haven’t posted a few looks like those. It is after all, my go to look in the Fall and Winter. A girl’s got to stay warm and comfy right?
Anyways, this is a post for an outfit that has been in my head for years. When I say years, I really do mean I’ve been sitting on this idea for these pieces for at least five years. I found this beautiful vintage wool Pendleton skirt at a thrift store a long time ago, and even though it wasn’t quite my style, it was just too great to pass up. Same goes for the polka dot sweater. I have a bunch of pieces like this in my closet, ones that are just too perfect to leave at the thrift store, even if I don’t know how to wear them yet. I am a sentimental shopper, and I just can’t leave a good piece behind!
Despite being across the board with my personal style, most of the time I tend to dress in baggy or oversized clothing, I am not super girly, and my style definitely reflects that. However, I do have those moments where I really just want to feel pretty, and girly. This skirt is so perfect for that, I think that A-line silhouettes are super feminine, and are flattering on almost everybody! The blue polka dot sweater is so perfect for this skirt, I love the whole vibe of it. I think I feel like I can pull cutesier things off when I have bangs, so I have had a lot of fun lately experimenting with higher necklines, and fun collars. I decided to pop on my new horn rimmed glasses to top the whole look off. My sister kept telling me I looked like Marion the Librarian from The Music Man. I’ll take it!
