March 2024, part one – Blue Collar Red Lipstick

Views: This shade of brown is a person of my faves … wait around, did I just say “one”? Does that suggest I have far more than one favorite shade of brown? Who am I????? It is accurate, while. I’ve been afraid of brown — perfectly, not afraid exactly, more like uninterested — my entire life, but it turns out that it is basically a gorgeous color. Or colors, relatively. This shade is at the intersection of brown and burgundy, and I really like its richness. There is some of it in the blazer as nicely, which definitely assists to tie this all together. A basic but really enjoyable outfit.

Particulars: Gap shirt, Ralph Lauren vest, Zara blazer, Esprit belt (all thrifted), Ralph Lauren skirt (eBay)

Feelings: This is a Historian/Trailblazer mash-up, and I enjoy it. Papa Ralph does sample mixing truly effectively,, and also juxtaposition, and that was my goal in this article as effectively. The trickiest part was picking the appropriate truthful isle vest, and I made my selection dependent on the color palette (of class). There is a little bit of brown in the vest, and I assumed the amazing grey would go properly with the greyish blue of the skirt. I think the brown belt with patinaed silver buckle was also the ideal decision here, to carry the vest and skirt with each other.

Views: As substantially as I’m becoming a brown-loving girlie, there will always be a delicate spot for black & white outfits in my coronary heart. I do not imagine black flatters me as considerably as brown does (specifically worn near to the deal with devoid of other, brighter colours to equilibrium it out), but I come across that paired with white, it does not conclude up seeking so significant and “draining”. Fundamentally, I really do not search as much like Casper the ghost, compared to when I use all black. And y’all know how I sense about mixing different b&w patterns — no completely wrong options, at any time.

Particulars: Ralph Lauren shirt, BR belt, Urban Outfitters skirt (all thrifted)

Thoughts: Guyssssss! I’m obsessed with this outfit. This is why I Desired a white men’s shirt in my daily life. The in good shape. The somewhat turned up collar. It feels so … cool. A white shirt paired with a comprehensive, lengthy skirt — and a assertion belt! — has been on my mind, as an outfit system, for months now and I’m so psyched that I can finally make it happen. I could not resist thrifting this skirt mainly because (a) plaid, (b) tiers, (c) volume! I do not like the polyester fabric, but I guess I can’t win them all. The waist is stretchy, which is awesome. Since I had to have on the skirt increased on my waist, so the belt would cinch at my narrowest position (to emphasize the volume on the base), I resolved to insert a petticoat to extend the duration of the skirt. The top rated-and-tail impact of the white was a awesome extra reward.

Information: Ralph Lauren shirt, Hole belt, Jeanne Pierre sweater (all thrifted), Banana Republic trousers (retail)

Thoughts: I broke my no-retail streak just lately, but I feel you will realize why. You know the BR corduroy vast leg trousers I purchased in Dec 2022? Of course, you do — they’re in the first outfit over. I Love them, and my largest regret at any time considering that purchasing them has been not getting the camel brown edition at the similar time. I have been looking for it on Poshmark, but they’ve hardly ever popped up in my size. So what is likely on below? Well, I went to Winners just lately to look for a little something for my daughter, and as I was going for walks out, I saw this pair of pants on the clearance rack. I acknowledged them right away, in disbelief. Sure, it is the BR corduroy huge leg trousers in camel brown. In my measurement!! The only pair. In my dimensions!! And you won’t imagine how a lot I compensated for them: $12. Why? How? How did a pair of BR trousers from much more than a 12 months in the past conclusion up at Winners? The most significant mystery. I am so delighted they did. The only drawback is that this is the normal size, not the petite, so it’s extended than I would like it to be. I need very significant heels to have on it as-is, which is not super flexible for me. I am planning to get them hemmed to the identical duration as my other pair. I just can’t hold out to have on them once again!

Particulars: Ralph Lauren shirt, Wilfred vest, H&M trousers, Joseph belt (all thrifted)

Feelings: I explained to you previous 7 days that this red vest was building matters occur in my closet, and right here is additional proof. I enjoy both versions of this outfit, with and devoid of the blazer.
