Today’s outfit incorporates different shades and textures of the color brown, and it’s a very simple, retro-inspired silhouette. I’ve noticed that I have been going for simpler outfits lately — I think it’s the start of spring and consequent rebellion of winter layering.
Heeee — I even added more brown through a floral hair clip. I picked this one up during our Thailand trip in 2010. The shoes are patent leather in a tortoiseshell pattern, and I picked up this cotton shirtdress last fall for $3 (!) at a local resale shop. I fashion-swapped the wide belt at last year’s fall fashion swap.
Details: Brown shirtdress: INC, fashion-swapped this fall / Tortoiseshell patent leather wedges: Payless, gift-carded last summer / Orange floral necklace: Vancouver, new / Petrified wood earrings: Handmade by my paternal grandmother, vintage / Sunglasses: My mom’s, vintage
My earrings were handmade by my paternal grandmother, and they’re made of petrified wood. Another shade of brown and texture to the mix! I also added my new orange necklace from Vancouver to break up all the brown.
Have a retro-inspired Wednesday!
