|Sweater: Esprit, Jeans: UniQlo, Booties: Anthro, Necklace: Thrifted - all old as the hills.|
In the world of style blogging, stripes and florals may be old hat. But in the real world of sarcastic friends, it's pretty far-out and radical, dude. My friend A, who will never fail to point it out if she doesn't like what I'm wearing, did quite the double-take when she saw me in this. "Florals and stripes," I explained, feeling like I was speaking some kind of foreign language that's even weirder than Norwegian. "It's a thing."
Spring always makes me dig out my florals and squee over them, and so I decided to put together a whole bunch of outfits with stripes and florals. And by a whole bunch, I mean three, which is what I've managed so far. A bunch is more than a couple, you know. Semantics.
Oh, and guess what? My friend didn't end up ridiculing me for wearing this combo! She told me, "Oh, you're quite co-ordinated, actually." Took me a minute to realise she meant my necklace, the one that I'd picked up on a whim at the thrift store back in my home town. So the necklace rescued the whole outfit. Not to mention it rescued me from sarcasm, which is always a good thing.
