Some of my favorite pieces of clothing are novelty prints. This skirt, however, is my holy grail of novelty prints! I've always loved Egyptian hieroglyphics so when I saw this vintage skirt I instantly fell in love, even though it took me a couple of trips back and forth to Sweet Ludie's Vintage (hoping it would still be there) to buy it. What better to pair it with than my "Where's Waldo?" shirt. Between the red hair and the hieroglyphs, I feel like I went with the Weasley's on their infamous trip to Egypt, imagine me right there in front of Percy!
When I thought about patterns on patterns, I didn't know quite what I wanted to wear, but after blowing up Amelia's phone with outfit options, this is what we chose. I decided to channel my inner Peggy from Mad Men and rock a curly ponytail. I've started re-watching the show lately and I have a folder of hair inspiration photos to experiment with. This week, 3 new teasing tools and 2 more sizes of sponge curlers were ordered for experimentation! I feel like the Dr. Frankenstein of 60s hair.
I've had this vintage gingham shirt for a while and it's huge, but after tacking the sides in, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was just the right length to be tied in a little knot (short of a good belt, I think this is one of the best ways to accentuate your waistline). I recommend doing this with any cute, vintage guys shirts you come across, it's a great lazy day option and it's quite comfy.
