Another weekend casual look, made up of pieces you’re probably terminally sick of seeing on the olde blog. Mostly, this is an excuse to show you my first attempt at a Gibson roll (tuck?) …
… which, in all honesty, I probably should have kept to myself. It looked ok from the front, but the back was a wee bit tragic. (I think you can see a rogue bobby pin in there if you were to zoom in. Please don’t.) But I like the idea of it, so I’m going to keep trying. If anyone has tips for mastering this ‘do, hit me up in the comments.
I rely on black a lot when it comes to my work wear, so it’s nice to break the habit every now and then. No black here – the shoes are dark green, scout’s honour. I always worry about looking like a clown when I wear All Colour, but I like how this turned out. And I was thrilled to realize I had a necklace that matched the print of this Boss skirt to perfection. What are the odds, eh?
I loved this outfit, you guys. You can usually tell how much I like my outfit from the number of photos I put up, so consider this your warning – it’s going to be a picture-heavy post. I thrifted this Simply Vera dress at Goodwill (which meant it cost me a whopping $7 – yay, Goodwill!) and there’s nothing too special about it, I guess; I just adore the colours in the print. A friend of mine said it reminded her of camouflage, but I see watercolour-like florals. Regardless, moody green is where I’m at, currently, as far as colour goes so this dress is totally my jam.
I also thrifted the boots and bag – for under $20 together. Not bad for leather boots and a Longchamp bag, right? In fact, the most expensive single item I’m wearing here was probably the belt, which cost something like $30.
Another thing I’m loving at the moment is displaying my vintage brooch collection on chunky knits. This mild fall has been fantastic for that – no heavy parkas in sight.
Ok, a few more photos for the road. Happy Monday, y’all!
