Wardrobe Wednesday- Blue Plaid


What kind of girl would wear a mini dress in the (almost) wintertime? Okay… I know I wear some silly things, but in my defense, it was unseasonably warm, and I didn’t even need a winter coat on Monday! A girl simply must take advantage of these moments in December. They are few and far between.


This is my vintage ’70’s Pendleton blazer (thrifted, of course). It’s my compromise for the boyfriend jacket. I’m still not quite sure curvy girls can pull off that look. I need all of the structure I can get, lest I look like a blob. To girlify it, I paired it with a mini dress with a bit of a full skirt, ruched gloves, and victorian boots.


When wearing these sort of boots, I always match them to the color of my tights. It lengthens the look of my legs.  This particular pair has a 2 inch heel, which is also a nice boost for the legs.


This necklace is one of my favorite handmade buys on Etsy. It’s from the White Owl shop. You simply must check out their selection. I love their creative reuse of vintage and delicate materials! I thought this particular one was a nice mix of edgy and sweet.


So, I’m enjoying the charm of these mild (almost) winter days. Next week will probably involve heavy coats and fur collars once again.

    The white with white does look really nice, I think. Are your legs normally short? They look fine! Beautiful photos.

    Yes, my legs are painfully short compared to my super long torso. I try to wear high waisted things and short skirts (much to my mother’s dismay) to disguise this. :)
