peachy keen

04-14-1004-14-10
vintage cord dress, hansel from basel socks, swedish hasbeens

Thanks for all of the encouraging comments in the last post! I'm glad I didn't quit too and I hope this is enough of a push for me to post more. Today was a fairly decent day; while it started out cloudy and gloomy in the morning, the clouds cleared up by noon and the rest of the day has been full of sun and pretty weather. Time to break out my new peach (or is it orange? rust?) vintage dress and a platform + socks combination. What else is there to say about an outfit? I'd love to get pseudo poetic about an everyday ensemble but let me be honest guys, they're just clothes.

Did I ever post a good picture of these shoes on my feet? If not, here's one that I took while I was home (sans socks). I'm so glad I ordered these socks from Hansel and Basel, they fit like a dream! They're so cozy I almost feel guilty about wearing them.

swedish hasbeens

I also posted a small update on my shop blog with some draped items! Remember this outfit and this one? I've given up on trying to incorporate the cardigans in my current wardrobe so I'm parting with them. I'm already regretting it but at least I'm one step away from being a closet hoarder? Bahh.

Also, thanks to Nasty Gal for featuring me on their blog, I love you guys!! Jeffrey Campbell Mariel Wedge, La Mer Capelet Tee, Rivera Chambray Jacket, Blossom Romper, and the Lula Scalloped Lace Dress in Pink.

im assuming the title of this post means that dress is peach-colored, but it looks a little deeper orange to me, which ive been all about lately! somehow i managed to buy 3 orangey toned dresses last week. two were from thrift stores though so i feel all right about it. anway, cute look!

You look great glammed up but your every day style is why I keep coming back!

Jocy said...

Honestly, I've been resisting those clogs, claiming that I've got enough clogs in my closet for a sane person. But this may have just persuaded me. Are they comfortable and good quality?

Claudia said...

your dress is so cute!

Anne said...

I never thought I'd want a pair of clogs, but I keep seeing these shoes and I'm falling for them...especially combined with socks. This outfit is SO CUTE. You look wonderful! I love how you don't take all of this too seriously either.

Gela said...

that dress is lovely! i love the color. and i really can't stop staring at those shoes. simple & classic! the heel height seems perfect too.

What a wonderful color for a dress and I can't stop wearing my Hansel from Basel socks with Swedish Hasbeens as well and not giving a fuck about saying anything insightful about fashion because in some and all ways, there aren't a lot of interesting insights to make about fashion.

Natasha said...

I have to agree with you on the clothes front, it's fun to look nice but at the same time following fashion trends can be exhausting and expensive! I love the summery feel of your outfit though, very cute. xxx

are the hasbeens comfortable? honestly? I've been eyeing them for awhile and they look too frickin cute with socks but the final deciding factor is comfort.
