Silk and Shorts

My vintage silk blouse looks like something straight out my grandma's closet, but I love it so much. I paired it with my Levi cut-offs and Colin Stuart suede ankle boots.

i love your style and i love your blog! i hope it's okey that i've uploaded some pictues of you on my blog.

vix said...

You never disappoint! Love both outfits.

Hmm.. I don't happen to be a fan of either of these two outfits. I actually love the grandma prints. I'm surprisingly a big fan of most things grandma (prints, sweaters, jewelry) but I think that the shoes with the cut offs kind of make the outfit too confused.

Same with the bottom outfit, looks a bit confused. I love how you mix fem with masculine and loose with tailored but the sweater is too casual.

Computer problems can really ruin a person's day. I hope it gets fixed asap.

Great top in the first photo!
Love the shoes in the second photo!

♥ fashion chalet said...

Mimi said...

I don't like the sweater that much but the rest is great,especially this cute blouse.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

Queen Lazy said...

The first outfit is fab! I love the shorts with the shoes.

Style Addict said...

I love the shorts, studded belt and ur shoes that grandpa brought. By the way, is ur family tired of ur shoe obsession. I know my mom is tired of me :)

Elana said...

Love the blouse in the first photo and the sweater in the second one! and as always, the Loubs are amazing! :D

Tout de Noir said...

Karla, how do you walk in these shoes!??
Perhaps, if I had gotten an early start like you, I wouldn't be struggling so much on occasions when heels are in order! But, I'm getting there!
I must agree with anonymous on the sweater, which looks too casual when paired with the skirt, but
your nails and shoes look fabulous ;-)

You are too amazing for words. Your outfits are never the same, and you seem to have endless resources (clothes, that is).

Why am I so unimaginitive?!! I love all your outfits and mine just pale in comparison. You're amazing.

stylish wanderer, milly75, fashion chalet,: Sorry for abbreviating (stupid me), the brand is Colin Stuart.

lewak: Ugh I'm so angry you have no idea.

k: Yay for curvesssss

emma: Checked it out, thank you emma :)

mimi: Oh but the sweater is so comfy!

tout de noir: Haha, I guess I've just gotten used to walk in sky-scraping heels.

hannah: You're too sweet hannah (that was my best friend's name!)

anon3:44: A garbage bag?! That's definitely a trend no designer's tried :)

anon4:39: I'll try to get detailed pictures of the shoes soon! (whenever I wear them again)

anon4:43: Haha, this I know.

maria: My father takes my pictures.

nita-karoliina: Thankkkkk you :)

caroline: They are very comfy surprisingly except for they cut my foot because I walk funny I guess.

I love these two looks! I can't believe that sweater is a little boy's sweater because it is one of the coolest pulls ever.
