As I’ve mentioned several times before, I used to really hate floral prints. It didn’t matter what the color scheme or pattern was, if there was a flower on it, I hated it. I assumed that all floral prints belonged on my grandmother’s couch and not on my body.
Well, fast-forward 10 years, and here I am loving on some florals–clearly, I’ve gotten over my aversion to them. For this floral button-up, I went a little tomboy by pairing it with my utility jacket and boyfriend jeans. Next time around, maybe I’ll try it with a skirt? Any suggestions are welcome!
It’s been a while since my last post–we can thank a wicked cold for that. I don’t get sick very often, but I always seem to get one bad bout with a stuffy nose every year to keep me humble. Last week marked my annual feel-cruddy event. As you might imagine, I didn’t feel much like showering, much less taking outfit photos or blogging last week.
I’m feeling like a human again today, so I’ll share an outfit I’ve actually worn several times over the past month or so.
It’s hard to tell in these photos, but this ivory peplum top has little gold flecks mixed into the ponte material. I always thought that aspect made it appropriate only for special occasions, but I’ve decided to embrace the glitter and just wear it as an everyday top. A little glitter never hurt anyone, right?
I have this bad habit of getting stuck in color palettes. For example, I tend to pair cobalt with black + white only; I wear burgundy with cognac + gold. Another color rut I’ve fallen into is olive with black and/or brown. It’s totally neutral and totally appropriate for fall…but it can be a bit boring.
So this time around, I tried spicing things up at least a little bit by adding a vibrant “orchid” scarf. I think I may have stumbled on a new favorite combination–I think the olive + orchid look pretty great together. What colors do you like to wear with olive green?
Yikes, I didn’t realize how big this outfit made me look until scanning through these pictures. Oh, the joys of pregnancy.
Anyway, I’ve always been a big fan of Sweet Pea clothing, so when I spotted this top among the hand-me-downs, I knew it was a keeper. I love the soft, stretchy fabric the designer uses for all her pieces–definitely ideal for pregnancy.
I also used this outfit as an excuse to bust out my new(ish) tortoise necklace. I’m really digging the jewel tones + brown + gold combination lately!
