~contrasts




This is a bit of a compilation of some favorites.  I picked up this vintage boy's shirt at a local thrift store and took off the flap of one of the front pockets because it was damaged.  I loved the shirt so much I really didn't care about the flaw.....and I've been surprised at how much I've worn it.  The skirt is thrifted as well and is an absolute perfect fit!  The pumps are thrifted Stuart Weitzman and are FABULOUS!  I don't think there's anything I can't wear them with.  The belt is a Chico's belt that I inherited from my mom. 

I love contrasts....casual with dressy, long with short....I think it provides some balance to an outfit.  Big party at the gym tomorrow, the culmination of alot of planning and work.  Counting on a great turnout!

  3. You look so effortlessly classy and elegant! This is a very relaxed but lady-like look...it kind of reminded me of Audrey Hepburn, simple and beautiful!

    Have a wonderful day Serene!

  5. Shy, thanks! I love this skirt too!

    Vix, I know! Right? It really shouldn't work....but I love how it turned out!

    Colleen, when I try to define my style to myself, elegant bohemian is what I came up with...hence the blog name. I love eclectic, but there has to be an elegance to it. Love you girl!

    Pam, I'm having so much fun making clothes to fit me and my style rather than me trying to fit the clothes. Chico's has some GREAT accessories, no? Love you!
