Today, I wanted to wear this awesome yellow top that I got on the weekend: It was only $7 on consignment on the half-price rack. This jacket has been a good investment - it was $20 in late 2009 and I've worn it a bunch of times (last time here, here, here (check out the video of me and Inigo!), here, here and here.
The outside shot:
I love a patterned pant, especially a plaid. I actually don't own any striped pants (I have in the past, I just don't right now), but I would wear them. I last wore this pair here, for Leopard Week.
A shot of the top without the jacket so you can see the shape:
It's a fairly loose fit, but I like that a) it's sleeveless b) it's not too low-cut c) it can function like a camisole and d) it's washable! And it's going straight into the wash because my right armpit gets hot flashes (thank you, peri-menopause). TMI? sorry!
My cool shoes - I liked the mix of the snakeskin print with this outfit. You can also see a bit of the fold detailing on the shirt and the nice row of buttons down the front.
My mom's vintage 60s choker that she got "from some hippie" (ha!) and my own "vintage" early 90s earrings from a store I used to work at back in the day.
