Florals? Sequins that look like chain mail? Suede shirts? High-waisted jeans? This is one of my more...out there outfits, yes,but man oh man do I love it.  I felt like the equivalent of a four year old getting dressed; just grabbing all my favorite things and piling them on one after the other. Whereas 4-year-old-me would probably be wearing a cat-ears-headband on top of a purple tutu over batman onesies and jelly sandals...I wore this.

Though that first outfit sounds kind of intriguing.

Too far?

I got to borrow this pretty blazer from Marisa over at The Shades of Monet Chronicles (I'm pretty much robbing her closet blind at this point), and below you can see how both she and Katie from Butterfly Loves Snapdragons styled the same piece!

  5. Ok, next time I'm in Chicago, I'm sneaking into your closet and stealing that sequin top. It is stellar!!

    I love seeing how all you girls style the same item in different ways. I could use a few lessons in remixing.

    1. Haha when I first glimpsed it on the rack I was on my way out of the thrift store. And by the time I drove half a mile in my car I couldn't handle it anymore and did a U turn back to go get it! Now that's devotion ;)

  6. I love it! Hey look, you get to wear a little floral blazer too :)
    I don't know if I am a great judge though since the cat ears and batman onesie and tutu combo sounds pretty good to me also! AND OMG I just looked up to see where your sequin shirt was from and you thrifted that baby for $5?! thats amazing! I can't wait to see more!

  9. Seriously you are just SO FUN! I love it. That sparkly chain mail shirt is just amazing. And that 4 year old outfit idea sounds exactly like something i would currently wear. Maybe without the jellies. ;)

  12. I really love this eclectic mix- all of the pieces are special but I'm especially fond of the sequin top! It's so feminine and festive, but it's nice how you've dressed it down here. It's great to take risks and have them work out! :)

    1. When I first bought it I knew this would be a fun "casual" top. I've had so much fun trying to tone it down for normal Tuesdays haha

  13. Ha! I love when bloggers stick to their guns and are all "this is not everyone's cup of tea, but I LOVE it." It makes me happy.

    On another note, that blazer is surprisingly versatile, huh?

  16. Oh my, oh my-your layering abilities make me swoon. I should seriously have a notepad out taking notes when I visit your blog! I love how you styled this. It is a bit out there, but the colors and textures work together so well that it isn't over the top. I neeed a pair of high waisted jean shorts too-they are on my 'list' haha.

    1. I feel exactly the same way with your blog! You always have the most fun color combinations :) And I've been hunting for a high wasited pair for *forever*. Then I saw this one blogger cut her dad's jeans and belt them and voila! Just go to a thrift store and you can have a pair for $3 ;)
