People will stare......

Shirt-Aero (old), Maxi skirt-Thrifted Talbots (gift), Shoes-Vintage Cobbie cuddlers (gift), Belt-Thrifted ($1), Watch-grandmas, Floral bangle- .50 @ garage sale!, Glass bangle -Mil

Well not the good kind of staring. It's the kind where you work in an office with a lot of testosterone floating around (which can sometimes be a good thing, considering how much women will just refuse to get along when crammed in small spaces together) and you just get these blank are you seriously wearing that? That's what happened when I wore this get-up the other day.

Let's face it, most men over 40 just don't get fashion, and I seriously don't want to spend an hour explaining why pattern mixing is all the rage. So until I become a kindergarten teacher ;) my outfits will widely be misunderstood by a group of middle aged men who wear pen stained shirts and polyester trousers. Thank goodness for weekends! Have fun playing in the sun friends!

*P.S.- M got me a sewing machine for our anniversary (He couldn't wait to give it to me....*squeal*...I love early gifts!) So get ready for some serious re-fashion posts! Here's a sneak peek at my first fashion victim before shot:


  1. Love the floral skirt and striped top! Such a great look! I'm trying to mix patterns and love seeing how others do it!

    Enjoy your sewing machine!

  2. That is the reaction I get on most days! Love the pattern mixing. Inspired. Going to have to try it! One day I got the "hey-Meg Ryan from the 80's called and wants her dress back". Coworkers have also offered to buy me shoelaces for my oxfords.
