Outfit 19.2.10: blue and red and green

19.2.10: red and blue and gree

enamel ring

The basis of this outfit was picked by katrina of pugly pixel as part of my help me get dressed project, which I’d love more people to take part in! I added the cardigan and the tights, because it’s cold cold cold and snowing again today.

I suppose as far as fashion stereotypes go, you might call this librarian chic, which is weird, because I’ve known many many librarians and have yet to meet anyone dressed even vaguely in this style. The two librarians I work with just now are both young men in jeans and tshirts.

blouse, cardie – charity shops
skirt – old one that I dyed blue
shoes – clarks
ring – from a craft market in Berlin

p.s. that was an accident to have two posts at the same time yersterday! the charity shop finds one was meant to be scheduled for today. It’s probably for the best though, because I have a backlog of outfit pics, and next week I’m doing the small fabric of my life capsule wardrobe challenge, so there’ll be a pic every day.

p.p.s. Just to remind you that you can ask me questions on formspring, if you like!

    I love how you added the blue skirt to this outfit, it blends all the colors so nicely together. Your ring is gorgeous!

    Well done Katrina and I love the way the ring goes with everything. It almost looks like the whole outfit is based round the ring.

    haha, i can't help but laugh at your comment regarding "librarian chic". I completely agree with you- I don't know any librarians who wear pussy bow tops, plus whenever i wore one, i was a walking stereotype at its best. You however, look adorable and i love the color combo.

    Glad to be back to blog reading! can't wait to catch up! 🙂
