head over heels: an outfit post

as soon as i typed "head over heels" as the title, i figured you may think i fell hard today. surprisingly i didn't, but if you knew me in real life, you'd know that i'm clumsy enough for the title to fit. anyway, i'll explain that later! today i mixed stripes and i liked it...

scarf: i can't remember, jacket: american eagle, shirt: banana republic, skirt: richard chai, tights: target, booties: steve madden, clutch: vintage/thrifted, bracelets: vintage and jade from chinatown in san francisco

this is probably one of my favorite skirts, but i don't wear it that often because the chiffon is so lightweight that i feel like i'm constantly rubbing my hand over my butt to make sure it's still down; it's so light that i can't feel it's there! the clutch i love because of the different textured leather, and it was a steal at only $1. and those shoes, what's not to love about finishing off an outfit with a pair of six pound wedges? good for the calves, i'm sure.

when i run on the treadmill i find that i feel like i've been on for an hour when in fact it's only been 7 minutes thanks to boredom... UNLESS i watch a movie while i run, then 30 minutes goes by in no time. one of the more recent movies i watched was 13 going on 30. i'm prepared to lose all my street cred here, but it's one of my favorite movies, and i can never get enough 80's music. because i love that movie, and this song is in it, i've been singing this all day (and there's the title of the post)...

  2. I think this is my favorite outfit post so far. I love all the patterns that are happening in this outfit. I also have to say that 13 going on 30 is also one of my favorite movies. I love the purple sweater with the hears the girl wears in that movie because I had one just like it when I was a kid.

  4. One of my main movie pleasures is anything super girly or rom/com-ish. It's a formula that just works, ok?! And I like Amanda Bynes in pretty much everything. There. I said it. I'm tired of feeling guilty about it!

  13. The skirt is lovely! Just giggling at the thought of you constantly running around with your hand over your bum! The shoes too....ahhh, to be able to wear something like these without towering over the Mr! The shop is looking awesome too. Will put your 'maker' post up at the start of next week. Congrats on cracking the 600+ on GFC!

  15. That skirt is SO pretty - and I HATE that feeling of thinking it's ridden up and your butt is showing...ahhh! Love the jean jacket with the outfit too - very cute! And I totally know what you mean about running - I HATE it and I always feel like I've been doing it for way longer than I actually have - sucks :)

    1. i wonder what it is with the 7 minute mark? all i can say is, if i wasn't able to watch a movie, i'd never make it on the treadmill!

  17. Oh my goodness I love this post. This outfit is perfect and you look so cute... the six pound wedges line cracked me up... and one of my guilty pleasures is watching 13 going on 30. I have watched it probably well over 50 times and it's still so good.

  19. I never want to admit how much I loved 13 going on 30! It was such a fun movie, and THE MUSIC! I am definitely a child of the 80's.
