Heh, She Said "Pants" Week - More Plaid and Some Yellow

Only one more day of Pants Week after today, and I'm saving the best for last tomorrow! I have Friday off for L's birthday - I'll include that outfit with my weekend post, which will include the dress for his birthday party. Woo! Party weekend! Can't wait!

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!

The stuff:
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.

A close-up:
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.

Jacket (Pelican Cove, consignment), top (Reitman's, consignment), pants (no label, Dots), shoes (Fergalicious), choker (vintage 60s, Mom's), earrings (early 90s, L.A. Express).

  1. Loving these patterned pantalons, too. Also, you are a consignment shopping genius.

    And finally, no. No, it's never TMI! (not in a stalker way)

  2. Great details in today's outfit. I like the yellow top. It fits you well.

    I also really love the shade your hair has faded down too. I'm definitely checking out that color you mentioned because it looks perfect to do my roots until I get around to ordering more henna.

    Happy Early Bday to L!
