WhatIWore: Ever have a week when it just takes until Wednesday to get going? I’ve been focused on other things (like my living room makeover and planning for Felix’s birthday) and my outfit photos lately have been duds (tried two different times with one outfit and ended up trashing both sets of photos). But today! Today! I’m feeling it a little more. I just wrapped my Whole 30 and I’m really happy with the results. I’ll do a recap post and some after photos in the next week (hold me to that!).
But let’s talk about this outfit! I knew when I got this sweater that it would have an awesome retro vibe that could be perfect for anything from a 1950s full skirt to a pair of high rise 70s style jeans. For this look I paired it with my self made waist high flares, a vintage scarf, thrifted boots and a self made hat. Threw in those $12 sale sunglasses too. And I love it! I ditched the hat en route to town and was a little on the fence about the scarf, but ended up keeping it on and even scored a compliment (they do such wonders for your self esteem when you’re taking a risk!) So I felt great! Definitely hitting the 1970s art teach vibe on this one.
When: August 30, 2017
Where: Donut Date!
Post Whole30, these jeans even feel a little loose fresh out of the dryer so I might take them in a smidge, but I kind of like the relaxed look too. I’ll be making this pattern up in a new fabric soon and I will definitely give them a closer fit to the body through the thigh.
So anyways! Gotta jet and clean up this house! Photos of the living room coming soon too!
