i've been living in casual skirts and shirts this summer. i thought for sure it would be sundresses, but i've been tending towards the separates, instead.

shirt- from mom
necklaces- thrifted, f21
cameo brooch- thrifted
skirt- anthropologie
belt- thrifted
shoes- swedish hasbeens for h&m

i know this isn't like a super awesome blog-tastic outfit, but i like it just the same. matt said i looked like a "worker girl." perhaps it's the skirt that gives that feel. i like and wear it because it's so simple and classic.

i used to buy *only* the crazy shit. now i look for more everyday items, to pair my more eccentric finds with. even if i am just a crazy cat lady, no use LOOKING like it.

  1. You look awesome! And I love the place, too ;). I need to buy more "less crazy" stuff, too, hehe. Most of the clothes I have are either too colorful or their patterns stand out too much to be paired with each other.

    Have a great day! :D

    I've been wearing a ton of skirts this summer too. I love this look and both pieces sre so versatile :)

  3. I love your lipstick! It's so vibrant against your skin tone. I try to keep a relatively good balance of crazy and low key...and things that don't show copious amounts of cat hair :p
    Your outfit looks classic and it!

  4. I absolutely adore this outfit ^^ it's basic but it suits you so well! I myself wear way to many dresses and not enough seperates! I only had 1 skirt at the beginning of summer! Now I have 5 ^^ gotta love the sales! x

  5. i love your necklaces! they look great together

  6. That skirt is a gorgeous colour :)

  8. thanks for stopping by my blog! love your lipstick.

  9. Awesome outfit! I adore your shoes and that amazing cameo pin. I love wearing skirts in the summer. They allow for optimal skin breeziness!

  10. I love your outfit! That bright shirt is so pretty.

    I love Swedish Hasbeens too! They're perfect for summer.

  11. haha, you look awesome! I don't know if 'worker girl' is the best description because I rarely associate layered necklaces and cameo brooches with 'worker girls', lol ;)
    Love the pin-up style photo!
