Hi friends! I know I haven’t done an outfit post in a while. I have a ton of different outfits to share with you but it’s been hard to stay motivated with blogging lately. After going to Oregon in January and then having a super busy month of blogging events in February, I didn’t have a lot of free time. Life has started to settle back down though into a more manageable state – that or I’m just getting used to being super busy. I’m not sure which it is!
I tend to do most of my blogging at night just because there are fewer distractions but lately, I haven’t had a lot of free nights! This is a great thing but also comes at like a cost because I’ve had to rearrange my schedule a lot to try to find that work groove. You know how it goes, right? Also I got hired yesterday for a new job that very well might be like my dream job. I start next week though so we’ll see! Wish me luck with it!
Anyway, this is supposed to be an outfit post right? I guess I should talk about what I’m wearing. So these tights! I regularly scour Ebay for all things “cat + fashion” related, for obvious reasons. When I saw these tights last year all over Ebay for like $1, I knew I needed to have them. But…they were always one size fits all, which you know, is never accurate, at least not for me. So it was a gamble for me to buy them. Then again, at $1 a pair, I knew I could afford to try them out. They barely fit me – if you’re above a 14/16, I probably wouldn’t buy them. But! Luckily, Torrid has a plus size version that is albeit more expensive but in bigger sizes! Because all thighs deserve to be adorned with kitties.
So I think I wore this outfit back in January when my hair was still blue and gray. It’s pink and brown now but I have to be honest – I really miss the blue. I might dye the front a light pastel blue color next time. What do you think?
I found this cowl scarf at Goodwill a year or two ago and I wear it ALL THE TIME in the winter. I love the fringe on it, I love the color, it’s so neutral but goes with everything and is super interesting texture-wise. I just love it. It also works fantastically as an impromptu hood if it starts sprinkling – I know from experience.
I’ve had these floral oxfords for a while too. You can’t really tell in the photo but they have gold thread woven through the fabric. They are adorable and comfy and floral – you all know how I feel about florals. It’s like a rare day if I’m not wearing any. Lest I disappoint anyone, I incorporated them into my choice of footwear for the day.
