Aqua Rose


I usually have the tendency to not buy shirts-- it's not that I purposely avoid them because I look at them every time I go to a store. It's just that they're usually not long enough or I think, "Oh, I never wear jeans, so I don't need any fancy shirts." But now my mindset has changed after buying this amazing shirt with such pretty colors in it.. and I am determined to find shirts! Over the weekend I cleaned my closet out and I have a countable amount of shirts left now. I never realized how many times I just wore a white or black tank top to school then stuck a pretty jacket or cardigan over it. I never dressed myself up based on my shirt; usually my shirt was the last thing I put on! I wasn't even aware that I did that! But now that warm weather is coming I can't do that every day. My poor white tank top already has a hole in it. because of love, not abuse, of course! heh heh.. I think it's that I want to find shirts with interesting shapes and patterns, like this one. I love the pattern on it and it a) has fun colors b) could match with lots and c) has ruched sleeves and puffy, pointy shoulders! It's interesting and a little different. I guess it depends on what kind of fabric it is, too-- I can't stand silk or thin clingy materials. Is there anything you tend to ignore buying for your closet, whether you were aware of it or not?

So, mom took lots of pictures today! We went from the brick wall to the red chair by the lake and to the wall again! The light was sort of weird. As you can tell, the weather here is still mushy and gross. Our yard is all muddy still even though it hasn't rained in days! Plus, it's going to rain again tomorrow! Ahhh well, at least Mr. Buggabug Von Bandito (my prized beetle bug! I name everything) got his windshield wipers fixed. Apparently now he has automatic ones, so that's a wonderful surprise I never knew about! Before, whenever I wanted to wipe rain off from the windshield, I had to push the little lever down. Every time. It was a chore, haha. So this is going to be like the most luxurious thing ever and I actually can't wait for it to rain. Even though the weather here is icky, I hope everyone else is enjoying pretty spring weather and I hope to join you all on that bandwagon soon!

Ahhhhh, the rose shirt, the bright blue, this outfit sings to me!

Actually, after zipping up and down the first page of your blog, I want to hang out with you just so I can trick you into sharing your wardrobe with me. Such devilish plans I have! Haha, I actually also love your posts, they're so fun. I promise I won't steal your clothes, but I won't promise I won't unsuccessfully try. :D

Toast with Charmalade

Oh you always wear coloured tights so wonderfully :)

Anna Jane said...

Love the bright and contrasting colours - with so many nudes/pastels around at the moment it can be easy to forget just how gorgeous colour really can be.

I'm forever buying new tops - if I have spare money I'm always looking for pretty tops/blouses to spruce up my wardrobe! As for fabrics I tend to avoid... I'm really conscious of fabrics which are really hard to iron at the moment, so nothing shiny or creasy has been in my wardrobe for a looong time!

Mel said...

WOW amazing shirt! The print and colors are gorgeous, and I love how you matched your bright beautiful tights with it! Haha you should get more blouses, they're fun to wear with skirts and shorts :) I tend not to look at pants and jeans even though I'd like a perfect pair of black skinny jeans and black slacks to wear to work. It feels so tedious to look for one and try them all on, and why bother when there are so many pretty dresses and skirts out there :)

Wow! You managed to pair red and turquoise and make it look so pretty! I am like the opposite of you, I am always buying shirts and usually stick with dark pants.

You mom is quite the photographer! You photograph beautifully btw.

P.S. You have such a cute sense of humor :) I will follow your blog n-o-w!

I am the exact same way about shirts! Then comes a time when I need one (all the time) and I never have any pretty blouse to wear!

Those tights are fantastic and I love the whole look. Cute photos too.

i've been stalking your blog now that i've found you and i think this is my favorite outfit so far.

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

I love that top and how you have paired it with the tights. Just found your blog through Clothed Much and I love how you like bright colours too.

Plummy said...

I love that belt and those tights! I also find myself not buying shirts--I guess it's because they are so much easier to find than other articles of clothing (for example, finding shirts that fit vs finding pants that fit) so they are always last on my list to look at...therefore I rarely look for them. I've been trying to be better lately, but I am much more likely to be looking at accessories or skirts! :) I also am a lover of colored tights and it's inspiring seeing you have so much fun with yours.
