Not a Day for Shoes

Dress: Vintage, Belt: Forever 21, Shoes: Asos
This morning when I woke up I decided that today was not a day for shoes. I wore a pair of red canvas t-strap flats to school but after third period when the sun came out I just went the rest of the day barefoot.
I wore a floral and striped vintage dress with a glittery lavender belt and a (now wilted) daisy chain in my hair and after school we went to Micheal's and I got a bunch of fake flowers on sale, including this bunch of daisies.
During French class we had a sub and after I finished my work I just sat and listened to music and looked at clouds and trees out the door and it was nice and this song in particular.
I hope you have a lovely (and possibly barefoot) day!

Lillian the Ladybug

 Kimono: h&m, Slip: Vintage and hand-dyed, Tights: Forever21,
Rosie-wrap: Retroville, Boots, Betsy Johnson
Just as I was finishing up my pictures earlier I found a ladybug in the grass and then she crawled on me long enough for me to take 131 pictures and we're bros and I named her Lillian and it was super cool so we took a bunch of glamor shots and it was chill.
Today I wore my kimono thing saftey-pinned up the front over a pink slip and polka dot tights. I also threw on my Rosie-wrap and my animal necklace that I got at a flea market a few years ago to keep up my Auntie Mame look.
I hope you have an absolutely lovely first day of spring!

Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat

Hat: Vintage, Shirt: Outside of a Morrissey concert, Skirt: Vintage,
Tights: Kmart, Shoes: Kmart
My mom gave me this hat for Christmas and it's super cool and also gives me an excuse to listen to the Bob Dylan song like a hundred times in one day. I also wore my weird off-brand Morrissey tour shirt that I got outside of the venue when I saw him last May except it's like three times too-big for me so I always have to role the sleeves up to the seems. Also I wore my leopard skirt to go with the hat. Since I wore purple tights I matched the ribbon in my hair and my lipstick so that I was very purple. I was going to wear my creepers but on the way to school I remembered that they're completely falling apart so my mom let me borrow her sneakers.
I put my hair in a beehive to hold the hat in place and also because beehives are far out.
I hope you have a lovely day!

Black Velvet Space

Turban: Vintage, Dress and skirt: Thrift store, Kimono: h&m,
Tights: Nordstrom, Socks: I think the grocery store, Shoes: Daddyo's
This week is basically just full of fabulous hats. Yesterday I wore a black velvet turban that's a very nice material because it's so black that it looks like a little piece of space or something and it's really soft. I also wore a silky black dress that's cut up the sides over a black lace skirt with my fringey kimono and a cool necklace that my aunt and uncle gave to me a while ago.
I hope you have a lovely day!

You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Fabulous Hat

Dress and hat: Vintage, Tights: Forever 21, Shoes: Daddyo
Continuing my Auntie Mame theme, I wore five necklaces, three bracelets, and a fabulous pillbox hat. I wore a lot of green for St. Patrick's Day because otherwise everyone pinches you which is lame.
I hope you have a lovely day!

Style Inspiration of the Week: Auntie Mame

 Dress: Ross, Kimono/Fringey Thing: h&m, Tights: Asos, Boots: Betsy Johnson

Scarf: Vintage, Slip: Thrift store, Boots: Doc Martin, Tights: Forever 21
I decided to combine my pictures from Sunday and Monday into one post because I wore the same fringey flower kimono thing both days and also because I didn't get to take very nice pictures yesterday. I've been wearing the kimono a lot lately because it kind of works with a lot of outfits and also I feel like both a really classy sophisticated lady and a cool hippie chick when I wear it. My friend told me that he thought I looked like a combination between a flapper and a hippie and that was a pretty good description of it.
I decided that my outfit inspiration of the week would be Auntie Mame, the title character from the 1958 film, Auntie Mame. I also realized that it's my calling in life to be somebody's eccentric aunt, whether they're related to me (and younger than me) or not.
Auntie Mame just wears really cool clothes and it's a great excuse to just wear really dramatic, drapey dresses and scarves and wear piles of necklaces and bracelets. Rookie even wrote in an article how to dress like her.
I hope you have a lovely day.
