Pink Frills and Evolving Outfits

Well, I have a surprise day off! So - I'm going to scrounge around my closet and try and get a Big Cartel update together for later!!

Oh! And that blousey from yesterday!!! When I first found it I didn't have the slightest idea about what to wear with it ... so, this post is dedicated to the evolution of an outfit!!!

Pt. 1

Pt. 1

This is my favorite version! I really like the pale pink with the faded green trousers. But, those trousers always need a heel, and when a gal has to stand on her feet for work, heels aren't always so practical!

. . .

Pt. 2

Pt. 2

Hat, meet flats!! I wanted to wear my hat because I was so excited about it, and thought the blue shoesies would be another nice introduction of blue into the outfit. But, I hate wearing pants and I start to feel weird and too self conscious in them... So...

. . .

Pt. 3

Pt. 3

The most practical 'me' version! A sweater because I'm always so dang cold! And my wool tweed Lyell shorts. Funny that wearing pants makes me feel weird, but shorts and tights are okay... Girls....

. . .

Dress up

And this one is just 'cuz. All practicalities forgotten! A sweet co-worker of mine leant the shorts to me because they're so dang cute and go perfectly with that blouse.... A proper photo shoot with that blouse/shorts duo is in order!

Sacaton June said...

eek, i love all of these! the one with the shorts is the very best! you're inspiring me to look for a pair of winter shorts! i must say, i would have been a bit intimidated by such a pretty, frilly blouse, but you've incorporated it so well. and your hair...the rag curls are perfect!

anne said...

i loved every look. so dang adorable!

Leilani said...

Lovely outfits overall, the first version is my favorite-- you look great in those pants (I understand your sentiment though, I feel the same way about jeans!).

Eline said...

Ooh the last one is my favourite! So gorgeous in its daintiness!

goldenmeans said...

Oh my gosh, all those iterations are just lovely! That piece is a real score, and you styled it very well :)

Angela said...

that blouse is gorgeous! i need something like that!

Meaghan Kelly said...

awww the blouse is so dreamy, but really that hat takes the cake in my opinion!

Amanda said...

Ooh, I love it with that sweater and the shorts!

Sahakiel said...

The blouse is wonderful! I love all the combinations you've made, but yes, I agree with you that the first one is the most beautiful!!

You look stunning indeed in all the pictures :)

I love the version with the wool shorts! And I have the same problem with wearing trousers...Shorts and tiny skirts don't make me feel weird about my legs, however a pair of trousers is a completely different story...

Q's Daydream said...

Big Cartel update!!! anything I'd like?!?! haha ;o)

reilly said...

Amazing blouse!! Absolutely gorgeous.

tara-lynn said...

Suzy said...

that third outfit is just a dream, girl. where are you working now? ugh, i am seriously going to be coming back to look at this outfit all week long!

<3

Jessica said...

Aw, wow, these are all so, so lovely!!! I think my favorite is the one with the sweater and shorts, because I'm obsessed with cardigans and shorts + tights are the cutest! All of them are perfect though...those frilly shorttss! They look perfect with the blouse! xx

acute angle said...

sew nancy said...

i feel the exact same about pants but love tights and shorts. must get some wool ones.
it's impossible to tell from my blog but i am huge vintage/fashion obsessed lady myself and i always find your posts a treat

esme and the lane way said...

I love them all! ANd this is the second post I've seen today that makes me rue not getting a lace top I saw on sunday... regret, regret! :D

I love your mustard cardigan too :) And know just what you mean about wearing pants, and wearing tights an shorts...

Jessica said...

These all look so wonderful! I love the bloomers in the bottom photo but most of all-- I LOVE YOUR CURLY HAIR! just looks so sweet and charming.

Great post!

JC said...

These are all such amazing outfits, but that last one!!! You need to find an identical pair of shorts for yourself!

Shelly said...

What a beautiful blouse! The light pink color really complements you hair and skin tone. I do like the first look the most but I must admit I have a thing for olive green so that may have influenced my choice a bit.

Christina said...

All of these outfits are so pretty! I like the "you" one the best, it really is "you"!

Agnieszka said...

Hi :)
I love your style! This blouse, shoes, bag............ hat...
Ohhh i like it a lot!
By the way you are on my blog as someone with great vintage style :)

xoxoxo

Lemon said...

love the idea of seeing the outfit evolve! lovely. and is your hair naturally so curly?! if you have any curling techniques please please share them for a poor idolizer of curls!

Plum said...

I agree with the first comment, you have wonderful hair. As for the views of the outfit in its evolution...it's so hard to choose a favorite, they are all special in a different way. The hat is pretty fantastic.

Gina said...

I feel exactly the same way about pants vs. shorts + tights!
What a great top--you can never go wrong with an excess of frill!

Rachel said...

pretty! I love all the outfits but I gotta say those impractical frilly shorts are my favorite!

p.s. having a contest on my blog, you should enter!

Kait said...

All those outfits are lovely. I'm also very smitten with the wall behind you :)

Jessica Lauren said...

Your accessories are beyond gorgeous and the clothes are utterly romantic, if only I could spend a dreamy moment in that closet.

If you have a moment or two, please amuse yourself with my new creation. I would greatly appreciate the brief moment of adoration.

Thank You.

the spectator said...

Only you could figure out what to do with that top!

And green and pink!!!

The Waves said...

Wow, that blouse is amazing, and if possible, I love the hat even more. I really liked all of the outfits. Combining the mustard cardigan with the pink blouse looked superb. :)

Penny said...

Oh my! I just love all of the variations. That blouse is just so darling... You always have the best sense for putting together outfits. Simply lovely... :) I think the wool shorts outfit is my favorite, although the pants with the blue shoes are so sweet too!

could you perhaps be my personal shopper and stylist? I could pay you in fruit stolen from various neighbors' yards.

Ellenitza said...

Great Style! I love daily wear photos like these.

CopyStrands said...

Love the outfits, especially the sage green pants. You are such a fashion icon!

Miss Woody said...

i love you for this post !

reckless daughter said...

I can't decide if I like the hat or the blouse better!! amazing!

PS: Are you rag curling your hair these days or using some other method? I ask because you hair looks absolutely adorable here and I've been messing with the rag curls lately but to NO avail. HELP! ;)

Dirty Hair Halo said...

Those shorts are freaking rad. They would supply hours of endless playtime for me! The possibilities!

Kass said...

that blouse is dreamy!

lightingtheweb said...

I love the pants. Who are they made by.

andwhatelseisthere said...

Very sweet, love it!!

MissKellie said...

They all look beautiful! :D My favorite is the one with the shorts. I agree about pants, though- I just feel strange wearing them. Tights and shorts, however, I love wearing! :)
Also, your hair is so cute!

kirby said...

Those shorts and the frilly blouse are perfect :D
Where do you find all these beautiful clothes?

Kelley Anne said...

Your blouse is so pretty and feminine. I love all of the ways that you styled it...but can't get over your hat.

heart charlie said...

These outfits are so lovely! perfect with your skin tone :)

Luisa said...

oh my goodness, look at that hair! just gorgeous! How do you get such gorgeous curls (or are they natural)? I love the shorts/tights/sweater combination with the blouse most (though all are truly lovely) because I feel totally the same way about short as opposed to trousers...also you have inspired me to try out that mustard yellow hue, so thank you. I love it, even more so recently, but have always shyed away from it because of my own colouring. But now I see you - with blond hair and pale skin, rosy cheeks, just like me - wearing it and am very inspired! Sorry for the extra long comment, this is my first visit here and I am just gushing because your blog/you is/are amazing! :)
