In Other Words, Hold My Hand. In Other Words, Darling Kiss Me

May 16, 2012

mayblog011-1xmayblog019-1mayblog022-2 When I woke up today I wasn't feeling particularly colorful or loud like I usually do. Whenever I wander over to my closet, lazily leaning against the door jam and scanning the hangers, my eyes usually land on one bright pattern after the other.

Today, well today I felt the equivalent of a cheesecake. I wanted something light and simple, but still a treat my eyes would want to bite into.  And here is what I came up with.  This look made me feel so wonderfully Mad Men, what with it's pale pink knee-length pleats and slouchy sweater.  I felt like I should be riding a bike with a bouquet of flowers in its wicker basket.

But real talk- I'd die if I rode a bike without training wheels on city streets. Ah well.

  30. I have a skirt just like this and I can't seem to find anything to wear it with! After seeing this post I think I'll take a leaf out of your book and go casual with a belted jumper. Thanks for the inspiration!
