Insert Clever Title Here

I’ve been staring at the screen for 15 minutes trying to come up with a clever title for the post. And then I gave up. It’s too early in the week.

This outfit is for the next Everybody Everywear challenge – Pattern Mixing. I had a planned different outfit, with the usual floral + stripe mix, but this morning I had a sudden change of heart and decided to go with a mix that I haven’t tried before – stripes and plaid (I don’t want to title the post “Stripes and Plaid” because it’s too obvious.) I also wasn’t sure about the brown belt + black shoes combo, but the dress has enough black in it that I think it’s OK.

Hey Mr. Brown

(Post title: song by Wheatus)

I seem to be favoring this brown/turquoise color combination lately. It turns out I have a lot more brown clothes than I thought. Not just shoes, but clothes as well.

Anyway, today might be my last chance to wear tights (it’s getting warm fast!), so here we go.

Science Is Satan Spelled Backwards

I went to another thrift store on Tuesday because they have a 25% discount every Tuesday from 8 AM until noon. And this is what I found:

I got all this for $15 and changes!

The gray shirt is the one that says “Science is Satan spelled backwards.” It doesn’t make sense, but I think that’s the whole point. It might be a little small for me, but I like the caption, plus it’s only 99 cents, so I bought it anyway.

The dress (yes, I know, plaid, again. What do you want me to do, go to Plaid Anonymous?) I bought because it reminds me of this Dear Creatures dress (it’s not my most favorite dress from Dear Creatures though. My favorite is this one.)

The skirt I’m not so sure about. I like the colors (you can’t see it very well, but the stripes look almost like watercolor), but I don’t know what I’m going to wear it with. And it doesn’t have pockets!

Also something you can’t see: the leaf-printed shirt is pretty much all open in front, with only a tie at the collar. But I like the print, and the open neckline can be easily closed with a couple of snap buttons.

And here’s hoping that the bucket hat will prove easier to wear than the cloche hat! (it’s actually reversible, white on one side and printed on another.)
