I have this little problem...

So here we have another Dress Like a Hippie Day. Declaring Dress Like a Hippie Day is not uncommon for me as the weather gets warmer. I am, technically, wearing shoes, so I’m not a total dirty hippie, and I haven’t yet devolved into my Croc-wearing Dig for Victory look, but that’s coming, as soon as I work up the energy to really tackle the weeding.

My shirt has puffy sleeves! And, Style Nation, this is my arse, only shown you because Desigual clothes are usually as fancy on the back as they are from the front, and this shirt is no exception.

Details:

Necklace: Thrifted, remixed. I can’t believe it took me so long to start thrifting jewellery. I wasn’t a big costume jewellery-wearer at all for most of my adult life, usually just sticking to my modest, but very nice, collection of fancy stuff, but in the last couple of years, I’ve been regarding jewellery as an integral component of my daily ensemble, and judicious thrifting has been a good way to build up my accessories. Same deal with scarves & bags.

Shirt: Desigual. Major end-of-season markdown, this, and as it turns out, my husband REALLY likes my Desigual clothes, and I’ve taken care to point out the Desigual shop in Liverpool to him. You know, right there. About two blocks down from the Starbucks on the corner. Near the Apple store? RIGHT THERE. That place. Where I got those dresses and that shirt you liked so much? That’s the shop where I go them. That’s the one. It’s called Desigual AND I REALLY LIKE THEIR STUFF.

I’m pretty sure he’ll remember.

Jeans: Levi’s 586, thrifted. These are supposed to be kind of relaxed the whole length of the leg, so they do more-or-less fit correctly, but I don’t really like the mid-rise waist on them. I think I look better in lower rises, and I’m not somebody who throws around the term “mom jeans,” lightly, because I think it’s kind of mean, but I wouldn’t wear these without a top that covers the rise, because, ugh, mom jeans. Covered up, though, fine and pretty comfy.

Sandals: Hush Puppies. Mom jeans and Grandpa shoes, but these are very comfortable, and much more stylish than, say, my Birkenstocks.
