This outfit feels like a sweet little trip back in time. I almost went full Minnie Mouse (those of you who are Disney Bound, take note!), but in the spur of the moment, I decided to add a minty cardigan. I’ve seen a lot of reds matched with mint, turquoise, and Tiffany blue lately, especially on wedding boards on Pinterest–don’t ask me what I was doing snooping around there. Anyway, I never had intentions of wearing this cardigan and top together, but whaddayaknow, I like it!

full2editreduxIt’s cool when separates come together almost randomly. You never know what to expect, and most of the time it works. Playing is fun.

When were you last surprised by your outfit choices? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for paying me a visit, and until next time, expect the unexpected!

916foggyclose_FotorreduxThat’s not some fancy filter I added in post-production; that’s straight up humidity on my lens. Don’t even get me started about what happens when I wear my glasses! I do like the Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds commercial effect. It’s somewhat flattering, don’t you think? No?

DSC_0418_FotorclosenofoxeditreduxThat’s better–loud and clear! What I really want to prove with this outfit is pin up style can still work as the temperatures cool off and even when you choose pants instead of skirts. Now, I’m not what you would call a retro purist. While I love polka dots and circle skirts, my jam is adding modern touches to those styles. Besides, my hair game won’t allow for beehives and victory rolls (which would be so much fun to learn how to do, but that’s another blog post).

Because I’m on the larger side plus sizes, I sometimes feel like I have to pick boring clothes for my bottom half due to the lack of variety on that end of the spectrum. Heck, many plus size retailers usually stop before they get to my size. It bums me out when I see cute clothes at certain places only going up to size 24. That why these pants were a wonderful surprise. You never know what you can find if you look a little bit harder!

DSC_0430_FotorshoeseditreduxI bought these shoes last fall, and they were totally neglected. I’m so glad I found a special outfit for them this year. Oh, and they’re still available and on sale!
