what I wore; hearts, jeans and polka dots

Thursday, April 26, 2012

the details
shirt - c/o Modcloth
under shirt - TJ Maxx
jeans - thrifted
camera bag - c/o ONA
socks - c/o Romwe
shoes - Forever 21

Seeing myself in pants is so weird. I literally own three pairs of pants (two of which are the same pair, I bought two because I liked them so much). I'm stupidly picky about jeans and don't want to ruin the ones I do own so I rarely wear them unless I have to (going to take a long walk in the woods, overalls are in the washing machine, etc). But sometimes it feels really nice to wear jeans as opposed to a skirt or dress and this was definitely one of those days. I even wore this outfit again the next day when I went thrifting I liked it so much.

Each sheer shirt I get makes me fall more and more in love. It was warm and breezy on this day and a sheer shirt could not have been a more perfect choice. It was so comfortable. This is the kind of weather I could deal with all year round!

Last week I got a La Sardina from Lomography. I've been having so much fun with it. I've taken three rolls with it already, one at the beach, one at the cemetery and another of just random things (including a really hilarious one of Elycia that I hope turns out. haha!) I can't wait to show you all the fun pictures.

Hope you're having a fabulous day!
xoxo

  12. I love that shirt and I've been keeping my eye out for the perfect sheer shirt, I found one last year and I still kick myself in the butt for not buying it! Everything is precious and I think that might be my favorite jumping shot! It's so perfect, the ray of light and your serene facial expression! It's like...majestic! haha <3

  15. That camera is the cutest thing and I love the shoes. I actually bought a pair just like those but in brown. The floral ones are too cute. I might have to get my butt on over to forever 21 and check them out. :)

  19. It's funny how you manage to combine all these patterns! I can never get that quite right and always end up wearing plain colors and jeans because I get too frustrated trying to combine different patterns on the fabric. Do you follow some kind of guide? You'd definitely save my life if you shared it! Thanks a lot!

    1. Laura, the guide is called - "wear what you like and what makes you smile and don't care what anyone else thinks!" ;)

      Seriously though, I have no idea. I don't feel like this is many patterns at all. Really it's just the shoes and shirt which I paired together because they both contained pink. Oh and black and white polka dots go with everything! :P

  20. I love the pattern on your shirt. The pattern and the cut are adorable.

  26. That's my favorite jumping picture I've seen of you. Calm and ecstatic all at once. <3

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your jumping shots are always so awesome. Even the "outtake" ones you posted a while back! I've been wearing pants more lately, and while I really love how comfortable I am in them, it's starting to make it hard to wear dresses!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was going to say the same thing: so weird to see you in jeans! But it suits you (of course, I don't think there's anyone out there who jeans don't suit, haha) The socks and shoes are an adorable combo!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm definitely in a similar no-pants-unless-necessary boat as you (although my red jeans usually sneak through and are worn fairly regularly), but this is a cute look. I love the socks with the shoes!
