What the what?

I felt that it was only appropriate to use this Liz Lemon quote as the title, seeing as how there were six people staring at me all at the same time while we took these pictures, and I'm pretty sure all of them, even the old man, were thinking, "What the what?" Apparently even in Portland it's weird to wear bright yellow pants and a striped blazer together. When I asked Josh, "Why are so many people staring at me?" he said, "Because you wear weird clothes that no one else would wear." I read Indiana's post yesterday about getting stuck in a style rut, and decided to forget the red vintage dress I was wearing and go with something, well, stranger. I liked it. It made me happy - and honestly, isn't that the point of fashion?

Striped blazer: thrifted from House of Vintage
Black tee: Forever 21
Yellow jeans: thrifted from Goodwill (Forever 21 brand)
Wedges: Lulu's
Necklace: thrifted from a California flea market
Belt: Forever 21

PS - I was featured on Go Chic or Go Home yesterday! Check it out here.


  1. Isn't it funny that in bloggerverse, this outfit is pretty normal looking - even tame by some standards, and I quite like and and will totally wear something like it myself.

    Honestly, I think it's the taking of photos that intrigues most people, I always get asked what I am doing and have given every response from "i'm photographing the trees" to "it's a model thing" to "an art project" and even the truth "for my blog".

  2. I think you're so right about that - people probably do stare more because I'm having a mini photo shoot. But I did get weird stares before we started taking pictures for this outfit :)

  3. I. LOVE. THIS! I have always loved yellow, black, and white together. It's so bumble bee-rific! You look amazing.

  4. they are staring cause my daughter is so pretty, the clothes look great!


  5. That jacket is wicked awesome!

  6. Ahh I like this outfit. I agree with the above poster- it is probably more that you are having your photo taken. People always look at me like I am a complete nutter when I'm doing an 'outfit photo'! Oh and I love Liz Lemon/30 Rock! A lot of people don't seem to watch 30 Rock over here but it's one of my favourite shows!x
