Mustard and Leopard and Pleats (Oh my!)

So, I’m feeling much better.  I’m getting over both my sinus infection and my body image issues (my HMO said I was fat – I took it personally).  And as a result, I was able to put together an outfit that I love instead of one that just didn’t make me stabby:


I mean, what’s not to love?  Mustard, leopard and pleats?  All in one outfit?  Yes, please!



For this much loved outfit, I paired my mustard cashmere sweater (thrifted) with my new-to-me pleated skirt (thrifted) and added black and grey herringbone tights and cuffed boots (Gap).  At this point, the outfit felt a bit “private school” so I added a leopard-print scarf, tied into a bow, as both a wink and a nod to the private school idea.  And it kept me amused all day.

Happy Monday, All!

  2. I've been told I'm fat by a doctor too. He actually used the word "chunky". I was just irritated I didn't tell him off! You look fantastic in this, and I think the bit of private school vibe is adorable! You have such cute knees!

  3. Um, your HMO said WHAT?! That is ridiculous!!! I'm so enraged on your behalf right now. We could make like 13-year-olds, and TP the office building next weekend when I'm in town. Or we could drive by and glare... and maybe say mean things, too. I'm open to suggestions.

    What is it with people being rude lately? You are absolutely beautiful, and no a-hole doctor should make you feel otherwise.

  6. Oh my god, I loooove the "private school" look. Maybe because I never had to/got to wear a uniform? I may be copycatting you on this idea soon. (You also put me in serious want of a knifepleat skirt...)
