This is a post of two firsts!
This would have to be my next new favorite outfit post for right now. Basically for three reasons: 1) I love this outfit. It has this punk rocker/grunge londoner vibe to it and it is different from my usual minimalistic style so I cannot get enough of it. I also thoroughly enjoy dressing as if I am in a different country which is always a charm (previously I wasparisian).
2) I am pretty sure this is the first time I have worn plaid
on the blog! What do we think of this print?! I think I have not worn plaid because it is very laid back but I also feel like I should be camping in the woods or use plaid purely as a stay-at-home-day-don't-leave-the-house type of clothing. Obviously, I was wrong because plaid was one of the staple items and it really put the outfit together. 3) Do you see him??! Well if not, you are about to . . . my dog is in this post! His name is Jake and he is a mutt: part chow, part labrador. His tongue is even spotted purple and pink. However, unlike PEPA
from the blog LOVELYPEPA
(which I highly recommend you go check it. It is one of my favorite blogs ever. The author is amazing!) my dog is not as photogenic and I am pretty sure does not like photos and cameras. That would be why I only have three pictures of him. Maybe more for next time. But what do you think of Jakey?
Now as for the outfit. This week I have been really into colored pants/jeans. So the aqua blue jeans started as my base. I also knew I wanted to wear my vest, but I didn't want to wear it with a button-down like I have done so many times so I went through my sister's closet and found the plaid shirt. It was love at first sight and the rest of the outfit simple fell in place. Since I had so much blue and black on, I accented the pink from the shirt with my pink clutch and lipstick. So what are your thoughts?
