Going out with a bang, you guys! I really like how this outfit turned out, though, god knows, it’s not going to set the fashion world on fire. Black + light blue is one of my current fave colour combos, and it makes a nice background for all kinds of other colours. Like, say, purple and teal. Speaking of which, I love this scarf:
I don’t wear it often – because, whoa, print overload – but it looks great with a pared-down outfit. I’m kinda all about the pared-down outfit these days, which … blows my mind. I mean, have you guys seen what I used to wear?! Your blogger is finally growing up, folks.
I can still pose along with those young whippersnappers, though. Smizing!Blue Steel!
Listen, I don’t have much to say about these clothes anymore. I feel like this particular dead horse (herd of dead horses?) deserves a breather. So, instead, how about 3 random facts about me? Because, come on, we can never have enough me on this blog, amirite?
1. I took intro Spanish in my undergrad for a Humanities credit, and also because I wanted to read Jorge Luis Borges’ work in the original. Sadly, I never became sufficiently fluent for that, and I have since forgotten most of what little I knew. One thing that has stayed with me is a love for Latin music – everything from bachata to old-school tango songs. My fave singers are Marc Anthony (shuddup, his Spanish-language stuff is amazeballs) and Alejandro Sanz; I also like the Buena Vista Social Club, because, apparently, I am your mother.
2. I am obsessed with baby names. I’m not a baby person at all, but I can talk baby names for days. Bonus fun fact: I hated naming my own kids. While my husband agreed to let me have the ultimate veto power, he also imposed some strict constraints on the selection process. Totally sucked the fun right out of it, although our kids will probably thank him in about 10-15 years. But, hey, if you’re preggo and need to bounce some ideas around, I’m at your service.
3. I went to an all-girls private school for junior high. I hated every fucking minute of it.
If you’re feeling chatty, share one of your random facts in the comments. You know I love to hear from ya!
I’m breaking what is probably a cardinal rule (never pair ankle strap shoes with cropped pants) but … whatever. I’m so close to being done with this challenge, I can almost feel my sanity return. With the end in sight, I can say without hesitation that these AG cropped cords were my favourite 30 x 30 piece. I know, I know. The self-avowed dress lover picks a pair of pants as her favourite piece?! Truth.
First of all, all of the dresses I picked for the challenge – while nice enough – were chosen for practicality and versatility. In other words, they’re not exactly dresses that make my heart sing or whatever. (Although I am really fond of my potato sack. And the striped dress. Oh heck, the black dress too. I like them all, alright?) Second, these AG cords are just the bee’s knees. Comfortable, yes, but also the perfect piece around which to build outfits. Outfits that … make my heart sing, I guess. God, how’s that for corny? I just got all corny over pants.
