Fashion, Books, and (Sometimes) Bikes

Outfit Post: 9/13/12

Shirt: Target — Skirt: Thrifted — Flats: Goodwill (Target) — Necklace: Gift from Mexico — Bangle: World Market — Earrings: LiaSophia

(If you want, you can imagine in the above picture that I’m shooting invisible laser beams at some jerkhead off camera. Pew pew pew!)

I mentioned in the last couple of posts that I recently did a big overhaul of my closet and sorted out a lot of clothing, which ended up at my favorite Goodwill. Some of the clothes were things that didn’t fit anymore (or never really fit in the first place), things that took too much bother to wear, and things that just plain don’t inspire me anymore. I’m hoping that it all finds its way to a new home where it can all fulfill its destiny of being worn and loved.

I will admit that I may have gone a little overboard with the sorting in my fever to get rid of everything, and I did reach back into the pile for one or two items, including this skirt. I hemmed and hawed and hemmed a little more–it’s not as versatile as some other skirts, since its weight and design have it pretty firmly in Spring and Summer, and like I mentioned last time, I have difficulties with red.

But it is cute, and if I only stick to colors I’m comfortable with I’ll evolve stylistically, so I made a deal with myself: style it one more time for the end of summer, pack it away when the weather changes, and give it another look-see once spring comes around again.

Fortunately, I sort-of remembered seeing turquoise and red around the interwebs as a semi-trendy color combo for summer, and while this top isn’t turquoise (what would you call it? robin’s egg blue? sky blue? I-don’t-give-a-crap-this-Crayola-shit-is-dumb blue?), I’m calling it close enough. Although it does betray that I apparently need a better-fitting bra. It’s life in the fast lane when an A cup is too roomy, I tells ya.

One thing I’m not afraid of, though, is wearing any dang color I please while my hair is pink. Red and pink? Yes, ma’am! It’s funny how I have a stylistic block for some things but not others. How about you?

  1. I love the way you used accessories for this outfit! I didn’t even think of your pink hair, but I think it looks just fine :)

    I wonder if you need to go down a band size for your brawr problem. I had the same issue a while back, the bra line was super obvious under my tees and I thought that since I must have lost weight and that I would need a smaller cup? But instead I went down a band size and up a cup size? maybe get fitted by a non- Victoria Secret lady :)

    Anyway, you’re cute!

  2. Sorry if this is a duplicate… Wp being squirrelly.

  3. That skirt is perfect with your hair. I have a wrap dress I’ve been bagging for the GoodWill…and then retrieving…for years. I think I’m possessed by it. May have to appear on the blog soon to show it who’s boss. Who am I kidding. It is clearly the boss.

    Blog pics have really helped me in the improving th’ underpinnings department, especially that time a reader pointed out my shirt was see-through :o

  4. Ahhh your hair is pink! I’ve been gone so long. I think I lost at least a week of my life to NYFW, haha.

    Red and turquoise definitely have been around the interwebs lately. At first I was like what? But I like it a lot.

  5. Laser guns are dangerous, young lady!

    I love your hair so much! Of course, I love it undyed as well, so I may not be the best judge. I refuse to believe that your top is turquoise, simply because that is one of my least favorite blues (I love all blues but teal and turquoise), so we’ll call it robin blue. Anywhooo, I like your outfit, especially your jewelry!

  6. Tonks hair! I am so envious. You look fantastic. I love red and/or pink with turquoise, one of my favorite color combinations.
