STYLE: OOTD Flowers Galore

Little known fact: sometimes your floral motifs get lonely and you need to give them company. Okay, I actually didn't notice that I was wearing florals on top AND bottom until I made this post, but that rationale seems accurate, right?
Lipstick is Fire & Ice by Revlon

I made this skirt last year from a very simple pattern and this glorious floral fabric that I got from Joann Fabrics. Here's a closeup of its vintage-inspired goodness, wrinkles and all:

Here's a closeup of the cardigan's floral gems. I'm...let's call it "thrifty" with most purchases, but I still remember that I spent $29 for this cardigan on clearance, which is probably NBD to most people, but I like to see how little I can pay for all of my clothes, so this was a MAJOR splurge to me. This one was special!

Here is a clear shot of the Indiana Jones Cat portrait that lives above our couch. He peeks into a lot of my pictures, but I've never introduced him. He found me at a vaguely sketchy thrift store and I just knew. I have yet to regret making him the center of my living room decor. The other is a painting of Mike Lowell done by my dear pal Brian.
Outfit Details
Cardigan: Adrienne Vittadini via T.J. Maxx
Tank Top: Old Navy
Skirt: Handmade by me
Leggings: Old Navy
Boots: Rampage via Marshall's
Bracelet: Vintage

Do you ever go overboard with a pattern? Are you into making your own clothes? Would you not LOVE to have your own Indiana Jones Cat portrait? I think I've actually seen this print available online before for those who just must have him, too. He's worth the search.

  2. Is your lipstick an orange or a blue based? I'm looking for the perfect blue-based red and I can't find it!

    1. I've seen others classify it as blue based, but it always reads as more orange based on me. For a true blue based, I would recommend ELF Matte Lip Color in Rich Red, Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Stoplight Red, Wet n Wild Megalast Liquid Lipstick in Red My Mind, Revlon Matte Lip Stain in Standout or CoverGirl Outlast Liquid Lip Color in Ever Red-dy. All drugstore, all great! xo

    2. I think Fire & Ice is sort of notorious for looking different on different people... would agree with the suggestion of Stoplight Red!

  3. I love that fabric! I lack the space for a sewing room but I admire handmade clothes and accessories. And that Indiana Jones print is amazing, haha.

    1. Yeah, I have my sewing stuff in the corner of my living room, but I dream of having a dedicated crafting space one day. It works for now, but I would definitely make more clothes if I had the room to really spread out. xo

  5. House tour? Your style seems pretty eclectic, even in your home. I like. :) I typically thrift all my clothes and won't spend more that $10 on a piece (and that's a lot to me!) but sometimes you gotta live a little ya know? Especially if you love something, like a floral beaded cardigan in pink.

    1. Thank you! I would consider a house tour, even though my space is pretty small. I love seeing other people's tours so it's only fair, I guess! And yes to living a little! xo

  7. You look adorable. Love the floral skirt and the cardigan. It was definitely worth to pay that much for it. I would like to have a Indiana Jones car portrait too. It's so cute.

    1. Thank you! I know, especially since $29 is actually like nothing to most people, haha. :) xo
