solid: an outfit post

here's one of my first world problems: i like solid colored clothes, but i tend to have a harder time finding them than i do finding patterned clothes. and sometimes, i'm so used to wearing patterns that i actually forget about some of my solid colored things! this blouse is an example of my sometimes-unreliable memory...

blouse: vintage, thrifted // skirt: vintage, thrifted // bag: vintage // clogs: lotta from stockholm // sunnies: tumbleweeds

i'm actually really glad i suddenly remembered i had this blouse because it's lightweight, super soft silk, and as far as clothing goes, it doesn't get much better than that. i actually didn't buy it intending to wear it regularly, though. when my pop, stepmom, sister, sister's boyfriend, and husband went to the thrift store shortly before christmas to get our tacky christmas outfits, i picked it out only because it would clash with my red and black furry sweater and my hideous wool plaid pants. it's been washed and patiently waiting wear on a hanger in flojo's room ever since, only i never thought about it; but when i suddenly remembered i had it, it was one of those lightbulb moments. now i can't wait to wear it more often! one more thing, the next time i wear this skirt, i'm getting pictures BEFORE i leave the house so i can prove to you it looks and fits better before all the wrinkles and stretching out!

i've been MIA for a few days trying to get some things accomplished and tending to life's demands, so how have you been doing? how was your weekend, and did you do anything for easter? i ate too much, but hey, what's new?

  2. I love this outfit! Fantastic for spring. The blouse is just perfect.
    I'm all about solid coloured clothes too - I have too many tattoos to go for heavily patterned items!

    1. it's funny you say that about this being a warm weather outfit, because i thought, "this looks like i'm going on some sort of tropical safari"! the shoes are SO comfy, and they instantly became my favorite pair!

  5. YAY your clogs! those are super cute and may need to get me a pair. i love the color too! but i may need to get navy ones to go with my nautical themed self. i too have a hard time finding plain clothes that i love. i do always look for them but end up finding fun patterned stuff. i think i have this mentality that plain clothes is boring but it always looks so nice to look classic and you look super great! like you are going to on vacation to relax. by the way..can i have your bag? yes, please and thank you ;D

    1. i think the same thing as you, that solid clothes can't be fun like patterns, but when i see solids on other people i think that i love the way they look and i need more of them in my life!

      you know, i actually only paid $2 for that bag, and i bought it from a shop that gives $100 of the money made to the humane society, so it's a win/win!
