I bought these embroidered buttons a while ago with the intention of turning them into brooches, but I never got around to it. Then I thrifted this linen top, and the pink reminds me of the buttons, so I decided to add them to the top for a touch of interest – the top has a row of buttons on the side already; I only had to replace a few with my buttons, and voila, brand new top!
I actually wore the top untucked around the house, but with these jeans, that looks too much like pajamas (my clothes these days are all little more than glorified pajamas anyway), so for the photos, I had to tuck it in and put on actual shoes. If the outfit doesn’t look like they all go together, that’s why – I literally just threw them on 😀
Because I’m wearing a cameo, get it? No? I’m really running out of ideas for post titles now… Anyway, here is yet another broderie anglaise top. I know, I know, I got too many of them already, but like the Breton striped top, I can’t seem to pass it up whenever I see one. This one is a little too froufrou, so I had some fun with the styling by pairing it with a classic accessory (the cameo brooch) and something unexpected (the jeans). It would be the easiest thing in the world to pair it with a skirt, but that would make the outfit too girly for me.
