Fashionistas, so glad you are here!
Today is another TBB “Style Perspectives” link-up with the gals from The Blended Blog. Sheila from Making the Most of Every Day created today’s prompt, a graduation look. Be sure to run by the TBB to check her out and then stop by the blogs of all of the TBB contributors and other gals linking-up with us today to see how they styled this prompt.
Before we move forward, let’s step back just a sec to revisit everyone’s blazer, tee, tennies interpretation from last week.
Yikes, let’s bury that pic of me and my bowl cut and move on. Pronto!
Although I don’t have any graduations to attend, I kind of like this little get-up (thanks, Sheila) so might have to attend graduation somewhere for some random someone just to be able to wear this out. Or maybe this could also work as a church outfit? That would be a lot less complicated. Heck, I go there on Saturday!
So, ummm, I shopped my closet for this look.
Ok, that’s a white lie.
I shopped my closet for the earrings. Ha!
Just kidding, I shopped my closet for everything but the little blush jacket. And I bought it because I had been visiting it at H&M for about two months waiting for it to go on sale. Didn’t happen. No sale. But by signing up for email sale notices should they have one at H&M, I got 20% off. Close enough to a sale for me. Terry striped dress is Loft Outlet from last spring but on clearance now, Loft Outlet metallic striped scarf, Payless wedge sandals, Charming Charlie ‘pearl’ and ‘diamond’ earrings.
As you probably know by now, especially if you stopped by for the “Style Perspectives” post in mid-April, I like some pattern-mixing. You can see evidence of it in that little cardi, tee, jeans and statement necklace outfit I dared wear for our April 13 post, here. But in this graduation outfit, I am really liking the texture-mixing I have going on. Seems like it makes things more interesting. The woven sandals, gauzy scarf, the terry dress, the pique fabric in my jacket, even the nubbiness (is that a word?) of my earrings.
Love! Even if I do say so myself. And apparently so did Purrsimmony.
She also liked the taste of all that texture. Sim was nibbling my sandal until I scolded her. I chased that little rapscallion out of the fashion haus and tried on the outfit, kitty fur and all the trimmings.
Yuppers, I like it. Can you see PC lurking behind me in the mirror? He thought I was upstairs getting changed for the gym when I was really playing dress-up in the fashion haus. Ya can’t leave me alone for a minute. So when he came up to check on me, I put him to work.
I liked this outfit sooo much, that after PC got his gym clothes on and went downstairs, I continued to take more pics.
Or was I just stalling to keep from going to workout? At any rate, I remembered this quote…
…then saw these pictures of my bowl cut again and dropped the camera like a hot potato. And into my gym clothes I jumped.
So now it’s time to run by the blogs of the other TBB contributors to see how they styled this graduation look prompt.
Now it’s your turn!
Join the TBB gang by linking-up pictures of a graduation look from your blog or by snapping a pic of your graduation look to share on one of the social media outlets using the hash tag #theblendedblogstyle.
Then come back next week for our last “Style Perspectives” link-up, featuring navy/nautical stripes. Question: Do you believe that old wive’s tale that horizontal stripes make one look wider? Do you wear stripes? Come back next week to find out if I do!
Happy Hump Day and, of course, hugs and kisses,
