You guys! It was actually warm enough for bare ankles! Omg omg omg <3 35 degrees never felt so good. Haha. There were puddles everywhere. The official first day of Spring was last Thursday, so yeah. I hope the snow keeps melting! I can't wait to see budding leaves on the trees. ^_^
The high waisted corduroys are the only new thing I'm wearing. I got them from my clothing swap group earlier in the year. You probably already know this, but I'm obsessed with corduroy. Dresses, pants, blazers, whatever. If it's corduroy, I want it. Right now, I have grey, purple, green and brown corduroy pants. I really want navy, pumpkin orange and maybe white. White pants kinda scare me. Hehe.
The rest of the outfit is the product of remixing. I'm trying not to buy any new clothes. So, I find myself trying to figure out how to wear things multiple ways without looking like a hobo. Haha. It's challenge, but I'm enjoying it! ^_^ My goal is to continue the spending freeze for the entire year, so wish me luck!
The studded loafers are pretty rad. I haven't worn them since last Summer. Click here to see how I styled them back then. I wanted the outfit to have a menswear feel to it and I think the loafers worked in combination with the coat and fedora to make that happen. I'm glad it was warm enough to wear them!
I'm obsessed with figuring out optimal color pairings with regard to different shades of the same hue. So, that's why I'm wearing grey pants and a grey coat together. :P I found the light and dark greys to be aesthetically pleasing. I'm currently tinkering with different shades of red. We'll see how it goes. ;D
I cherish this vintage wool Eddie Bauer sweater. <3 The farm animal scene is just too adorable! There are small holes in some parts of the fabric, but the copyright on the tag reveals that this baby is from 1987, so I think it has held up well, all things considered. Click here to see how I last wore it. :P
OK, I'll stop babbling, now. :D I hope you like this very simple, but fun outfit! <3
