what I wore; cats and cowboys

the details
sweater - thrifted / vintage
skirt - Forever21
boots - thrifted / vintage

I am in LOVE with this shirt! I was really nervous because I have never had luck with one size fits all clothing but this fits perfect! I'm pretty stoked that this one time something "one size" actually fits me like a size I would buy if it came in other sizes. (I'm aware that sentence sounds awkward but I think you'll get the gist!). Plus how awesome is it that the eyes match my hair?! 

These are the second pair of boots from when Elycia and I made the thrift video. They're so pretty, I love how vibrant they are. I wish they were something I could get away with wearing all the time. Not that I don't always stick out like a sore thumb when I go out anyway - with purple hair and all. But I don't need to be know around town as "that purple haired girl who is always wearing those obnoxious cowboy boots".

Oh, also, Thank you all for the awesome comments on mine and Elycia's vlog yesterday. I'm kind of blown away. I was so nervous about posting it. You guys are the best!! We definitely have plans to make more vlogs in the future. If you have any questions you'd like answered in our next vlog feel free to email either one of us with the title "vlog question" so we know to put it in a special folder.

Hope you all have a great day! It's supposed to be a rainy one here, so the perfect day for cleaning the house and baking cookies.
xoxo

  1. I swear, girl, because of you I have REALLY opened up clothing wise... Animals, fun prints, etc. Your outfits look SO pretty and give me confidence that I can rock color, print and animals. <3 I sent you a pic on Twitter of my mushroom shirt I bought while thrifting. ;) Made me think of you!

    Anyway, this outfit is perfect! I especially want that sweater and those tights. ♥.♥

  3. lol-'the girl with the purple hair and the obnoxious cowboy boots.' I can see the commentary as if it were a movie.

  5. How cute! This is something you would catch me wearing on a regular basis...you don't know how hard it is for me to go to work in business casual...especially when my closet is a rainbow..lol I'm in love with, how the eyes match your hair...and who cares if you wear those boots all the time, they are freakin adorable! But I live in a small town...so I know what you mean...have a nice raining day baking cookies :)

  13. That skirt is beautiful!!! It's so bright, I love it! At first, I thought you'd had some stars tattood on your knees, imagine the pain!

  14. I love all the soft blue colors in your outfit coupled with the boots-it definitely looks great! And your tattoo peaking out from the bottom of your skirt is pretty sassy :-)

    I totally get what you mean about one-size-fits all tops--I got really luck with this half-circle sweatshirt from American Apparel. It looks like it was made in my size, and I love wearing it! (I probably wear it way too much, but oh well!)

  16. I am still on the hunt for a perfect pair of cowboy boots... after watching Coraline, I became a bit obsessed with getting a cobalt blue pair, but no luck. These are lovely, and look especially awesome with the tights.

  23. Your outfit is too cute! I think when you are daring (like having purple hair AND wearing purple boots... not to mention those awesome tights, skirt and top), you give permission for others to be wild too! So, wait to go!!!

    ps I love how in the first photo you're doing a proper cowboy boots stance, it just looks like you'd be saying 'howdy partner' in it!

  31. Gorgeous tee & boots! Love this whole outfit.

  32. So at first I thought you had giant star stickers on your knees. LOL! I was wondering how you got them to stay without crinkling off. Tights make a lot more sense.
    You look adorable in cowboy boots. They can be a bit tricky but you look great.
