what I wore : polka dots + puppies!

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

details
crop top - Charlotte Russe
(no longer available, here's a similar one.)
boots - Forever 21 (last year)

I cleaned out my closet last week. It was over stuffed and a lot of the things inside of it hadn't been touched since I moved in. I packed a box full of things to take to the thrift store, a laundry basket full of things to possibly include in a sale (you interested?), and found a whole bunch of things I had completely forgotten about. This skirt was in the "maybe" pile until I tried it on and fell back in love. It's a great length, it's comfortable and best of all, it doesn't need ironed before I wear it. Is it lazy of me to admit that was actually one of the requirements the things I kept had to meet, that I didn't need to iron them before wearing them? It's not necessarily that I mind ironing things before I wear them, it's that I don't like things getting wrinkly while I wear them.

The dogs were all about invading my photos. Crum is actually just in love with me. That dog seriously never leaves my side when I visit my parents. No matter where I go, he follows. I was sitting on a rock in the pond while my nephew looked for cool rocks. Who was by my side? Crum, just standing in the water. That dog is too sweet. Although getting slobber all over my sweater isn't something I really appreciate, he sure does have a massive tongue!

PS. You can see this skirt styled another way here from 2013.

  3. Yes please for a sale! I absolutely love love love 'shop my closets'! And this outfit is so perfect, I wish it was cool enough to get away with wearing a cardigan. It's going to be in the 90s all week. *sigh*
    And I feel the same about wrinkles in clothing and ironing. Sometimes I just want to be able to throw something on without having to worry about how it'll look come the end of the day.

    The puppies are the cutest, I love that in the last photo they're almost doing the same moves!

    1. It's back to being in the 90s here too! We just had a few lucky cooler days. I'm sooo looking forward to being able to wear cardigans again all the time.

      Haha, Klaus tries to be just like Crum. They both fight for my attention.

  7. I'll only buy pieces I know I won't have to iron. Is that like a fashion faux-pas? I have maybe 3-5 pieces in my closet that would require ironing and I only have them because they're high quality, sentimental pieces (that I also rarely wear).

    Also, I totally am obsessed with your hair now. Keep it like this for-ev-ar! :P

  14. Hi Kaylah,
    I love looking at your tattoos! They are so interesting :) I couldn't figure out what was on the back of your left knee though. Could you tell us? Would love for you to do a post where we could see photos of each of your works of art.
    Thanks,
    Leslie

  17. I love the last two photos! Coy to silly.
    And I would DEFINITELY be interested in a clothing sale... I think we're about the same size ;)
    I've also been wanting to wear more crop tops with my higher waisted skirts, but I have such a hard time finding tops that don't look completely stretched out across my, uh, bosom.... but I love the look of the two together so much! Rock it.
