what i wore :: plaid and boots

:: head to toe ::
shirt :: H&M
brooch :: thrifted
belt :: vintage scarf from Ivan's great aunt
skirt :: thrifted 
tights :: good question...not sure
boots :: thrifted

This is my favourite outfit in a while. I have been pretty into red lately. I noticed when we went to Florida and almost everything I brought was either red or partly red or matched nicely with red. 

I snagged this skirt and these boots on our thrift adventure last time we visited Kaylah & Kevin. We were in Ohio again this past weekend and somehow I managed not to buy a single thing. I have no idea how that happened. 

All right, I'm off! I am picking up two special visitors this afternoon and I'm so excited!

  3. Wonderful outfit! And I love the nail polish and how it matches:) I'm probably a bit OCD when it comes to color coordination haha.

    Sounds exciting, have fun!

  17. I love this outfit too! I was actually really looking forward to the end of the pictures, so I could see where this "dress" came from - because I wanted it too. I was sad to find out that I of course can't recreate this exact look for myself. Love it :)

  35. seriously love your nails. that might be my favorite way to paint nails i've seen. gonna have to work on my polish collection before i can successfully complete the rainbow.

  36. So I really loved your powder pink hair. Like a lot. But now, every time I hop over here, I leave with plans for darker, shorter hair. SO STINKIN CUTE, miss!

    ReplyDelete
  37. so- i meant to ask this when you mentioned it in an earlier post but i would loooooooooove more info about the process you are going through with your hair. mine is so frizzy from perming it and i am over it!

    btw- you and red lipstick were made for each other.

    1. Maybe I will talk about it in more detail in the future but quickly...
      Most days I just massage my head with water and then condition. Some days I rinse with apple cider vinegar. Some days I use a tiny bit of shampoo. I am a bit all over the place with it but basically just shampooing as little as possible. :) It is really helping with the frizz!

  38. You are so awesome it is ridiculous.

    Ok back to studying...

  41. Love the skirt Elycia!
    Farva looks a lot like my cat, Marvin! Don't you just love the black and whities? They've got so much personality!

  42. Love the red lipstick. I am partial to a bit of red myself.

    The important question, though, is how do you get your belt to stay in place all day, even when you lift your arms up? It seems like my skirt waistbands are constantly slipping out of my belts, or my belts are slipping down on my skirts.

    Please help...

    1. I did have to adjust it a few times and my skirt definitely tried to escape. I think a safety pin would help!

  44. I quite enjoy this look. Red looks GREAT on you! And hey, we're all matchy-matchy red cowboy boot buddies... there's a club for that, right?

    ReplyDelete
  45. So damn cute! I love the navy & red combination. It's both understated & bold, and who doesn't love a bright cowboy boot?
