What I Wore Wednesday: The Teal Deal
Today is all about teal accented by warm neutrals and a cool powder blue. Funny how these things work out because I didn't plan it that way. I just threw on a few of my favorite and most comfy pieces that seemed appropriate for today's unseasonably warm weather:
handmade earrings by Rainbow Sugar // designer knock-off babydoll hoodie (purchased pre-trend, thank you very much!), shrunken by me (#dryerfail) // oversized French designer cardigan (thanks Kate!) // extra-long sleeved tee // sweater dress // sweater leggings // leg warmers strategically covering my tiny ankles which would otherwise be accentuated by my supercomfy soccer-mom style Colombia sneakers. The two new-ish things are the Urban Expressions teal purse and the clear umbrella from Modern Love (thanks Richard!).
I am modeling in Craftland with my awesome co-worker Amy, in purple skirt and snazzy leopard print flats, and my fabulous friend ALF, in the cozy hat and deep plum jacket. I love these girls! They are my two best friends in Providence.
Last week I didn't share what I wore on Wednesday because I was out of town and had no one to photograph me. I did snap this picture of myself in the tiny bathroom mirror. Looking at it again, I don't think it came out that bad.
This outfit was practically free! I'm wearing: my ex-roommate's cast-away turtleneck (more teal!) // Patagonia sweater found in a free box in Prospect Heights // American Apparel skirt (thanks Liz!). I purchased the black leggings, grey knit knee high socks, white and blue stripped earrings, and the Afro wig.
I love how the stripes in the earrings play off the stripes in the sweater. I also love blacks and greys paired with color. I could do without the big pockets on both the sweater and the skirt, but hey, when in Rome (or whereever you're vacationing), wear what you've got packed!
