Look of the Day: Birthday Suit

 vintage, blouse, seattle street style, summer, fashion, blonde, short hair, fleur d'elise

Here is an outfit I've created mainly from birthday presents and other new items. I bought myself the blazer at H&M and my sister picked out this gorgeous silk blouse. It's so delicate, I'm sure I will have destroyed by the end of the weekend. Isn't the pattern pretty? It's sort of half floral, half abstract, and I love that the roses are brown.

...Dang, I just realized I forgot to wear the Madewell earrings I bought for myself as a birthday present! Oh well, next time.

 Other new items: The sweet high-waist shorts I found at Value Village for like $1.50 (!) and the clutch was on clearance for $5 at Target. The shorts seem to have shrunk a bit in the wash. Glad I didn't put them in the dryer, because I can barely sit in them, haha. Will have to do the old lunge-and-stretch trick to get them to ease up a bit. They look so much like the American Apparel high-waist jean cuff short, minus the cuff.

Loving the new lay out with the bigger pictures. That vintage shirt is so cute but the kicker is the $5 target clutch.

I just have to tell you, this look is so much better than a traditionbal birthday suit :) You have some serious thrift skills; can't believe you found high waisted shorts for $1.50! They look awesome on you. And that blouse (which I seriously hope you don't destroy because it needs to be added to many more looks), while completely out of my normal comfort zone, is pretty much the best thing ever. Just saying. Happy belated birthday, miss! Hope is was wonderful :)

LOL! Our great minds think alike because I was just thinking those high waist shorts look just like the ones from AA! They are super flattering on you and I love that they are a dark wash. Your blouse is also so lovely and I love the sort of abstract print. This is a fantastic look girl! <3
