One of those old ladies


This lime green hat made me feel like one of those old ladies at the grocery store who everyone stares at because she's wearing bright colors and odd clothes that most people would think are not age-appropriate. (Kind of like the ladies on one of my favorite blogs, Advanced Style.) I have always wanted to be one of those old ladies. I can get away with wearing clothes like this now without feeling out-of-place because I'm young, but I hope I still wear neon yellow sweaters and lime green hats when I'm old. (Maybe not the five-and-a-half inch heels, though!)

I wore this outfit to welcome the first day of spring yesterday, but spring decided not to show up. The cold weather, rain and fog showed up, though. Yay. I couldn't decide if I liked the sweater better tucked into the skirt or untucked, so I included a photo of both. Untucked is more unusual for me, but I liked the slouchy look of it.


Yellow sweater: Gap
Green skirt: thrifted from Crossroads Trading Co.
Blue boots: Steve Madden Carnaby heels from Zappos
Green hat: free from my aunt
Blue necklace: thrifted

  2. I would say that I prefer the tucked in look. It is crisper and more orderly. All in all, a pretty cool outfit.

  3. Ah I love this outfit! The colours are so great, that yellow sweater is fantastic. I think I prefer the sweater better tucked, but it has a grungy thing going untucked too.

  4. Ugh, I got the same sweater from the Gap, but it was too big and I was forced to send it back. I'm so sad because I love that color.

    And I think you rocking the heck out of this outfit. Age is part of it, but so is the youthful tights and booties. You look great.

    1. Yeah, the sweater is huge! I normally wear a size medium or large in sweaters, but had to get a small in this one, and would have bought an extra-small if it had been in stock.
