My Outfit Monday: Moody weather, uplifting prints
Welcome to October. It's been waiting for us!
Yes, I have a birthday-month bias, and yes, it's rainy today, but you have to admit that it feels plain awesome.
With the weather turning crisp, I'm turning down summer's bright hues (yellow Target purse excepted) in favor of toned-down, moodier wardrobe choices that match my midnight pedicure.
That doesn't mean the fun's over. With mixed patterns, the fun never stops.
I inherited this floral blouse with billowy sleeves for free from Deal Diva Alumna Kameel. There's something about tucking baggy blouses into fitted pencil skirts that leaves me inspired and happy, so that's where I took things with this navy Target skirt (also from Kameel).
I could have stuffed my toes into reliable maroon pumps for a look that made polished sense. But I wanted to give a shoutout to my pedi, and these low wedges from DSW came to mind as a neutral but playful surprise. Or are they actually bonkers?
I texted Stephanie a photo with the usual question (with usual lazy punctuation). She provided the usual answer.
She blessed this, so I went with prints on prints.
Topping off the outfit is a copper bracelet from Serbia (thanks, friend of Deal Divas, Aaron!) that ties in some of the tan from the wedge, plus adorably modest pearl cluster studs from Misred Outfitters.
They were $8, and I may have thrown them in at the last minute over the weekend so my purchase would qualify me for a free popsicle at The Hyppo next door.
I chose a plum sangria pop. And I continued to be grateful for everything October has to offer.
