update…this look is featured on weardrobe! woot woot.
yes, that is a frame…a prop, if you will.
i found several of them at a garage sale a couple of months ago. they’ve been propped up (haha! no pun intended.) against a wall since then. i tripped over one on my way outside [to take these photos] and decided it was meant to be.
so…just go with it.
vintage eyelet sleeve blouse – thrifted
belt – thrifted
vintage shorts – thrifted
tights – anthropologie
shoes – target
before it reached a thousand degrees that day, i was wearing my favorite teeny tiny wool blazer. it looked good, but it wasn’t worth numb arms and dying of heat exhaustion.
i think this outfit will be more appropriate for fall. i can’t wait to wear it with boots! and a sweater! …while drinking my soy chai and strolling through the pumpkin patch. (who am i kidding? october in california is usually blazing hot. last year, while searching for the perfect pumpkin, i was wearing a tank top and couldn’t wait to find shade because i was literally melting. no wonder our jack-o-lanterns don’t last long. they start rotting on my door step within a week!)
fall…please come to california soon.
coworker 1: aren’t you hot in those tights?
me: i’m wearing shorts and tights. you’re wearing pants. i’m probably more ventilated than you. are YOU hot?
coworker 2: whoa. i didn’t realize you were doing something weird today.
me: oh yeah. you’re surprised? i’m switchin’ it up. keeping you on your toes!
coworker 3: i walk by, her eyes get wide, she says nothing.
me: you know i have a blog and that i often write about what i wear. we do things differently in the blogging world. this works there. they get it. (trying frantically to explain myself only elicits bigger eyes and a slow nod of the head.)
coworkers…gotta love em.
have you entered the barefoot & vintage/mousevox vintage giveaway yet??
thanks and GOOD LUCK!
