Sometimes I Want To Dress Like A Pirate
Kayleigh Peddie leggings from Etsy.
Can we talk about this blouse? I love it very much. I hesitantly bought it (for $4!) from the thrift store, dubious that I would find a way to wear it but not able to pass up those lacy sleeves. I'm glad I bought it in the end, because I love it more every time I wear it! Plus I've found a surprising number of things to pair it with. Thrifting prevails once again!
These velvet leggings are the best clothing purchase I've made in a long time. Possibly ever. They're comfortable, relatively flattering, and totally gorgeous. Plus they're pretty unique, which is a big plus for me. I often feel like my style is a jumble of other people's ideas, and there's nothing original I have to add to the mix. That's part of the reason I haven't been posting as much lately; I just felt like I didn't have anything to put out there that hadn't been done a million times before. But this outfit, with its strange pirate-y proportions and delicate details, feels like it comes from my own brain and not some picture I saw on tumblr a week ago. These leggings basically gave me my groove back. And look how well they match my orange shirt! It was meant to be, I tell you.
