70's Art teacher in the sun

skinnies: levi's via thrift, CA // shirt: forever 21 (similar) // cardigan: forever 21 via thrift, CA (similar) // shoes: h&m // necklace: thrifted, CA // bracelet: thrifted, CA (similar) // bag: thrifted, CA (similar)

I really did get dressed in the dark this morning -- I left my house super early to meet friends for pre-work breakfast, and I don't think I actually looked down at what I was wearing until I was already out the door to catch my Muni. I'm not so sure I would have paired this shirt and cardigan together under other circumstances, but in the end I loved how they looked in contrast with the turquoise jewelry. Two shades of burnt orange (which I swear look less watermelon-y in real life), a big straw bag and this loud necklace? Welcome to my version of an art teacher from 1975.

  2. The late-afternoon pics didn't turn out, huh? We tried so hard today. I loved this outfit - the orangey-reds, the crazy-ass necklace, the slightly overcorrected posture ;-)
