Frühlingszeit



Sunshine, melting snow, Camera Obscura, Springtime: Pretty much the main things which influenced this outfit of mine from yesterday. It made for the perfect opportunity to wear my new orange batwing jumper c/o OASAP which I received last week. I was looking for some interesting contrasts so I paired it with blues & red. You've seen these blue pleated palazzo pants once before (here), but I have to say it again: these are so much fun. Especially on a windy day like yesterday; they're blowing every which way & I can't help but smile over them. Definitely need to find a second pair of these soon. 


Despite the fact that our house is still in the heart of winter, I wore my peep-toe Foxy platforms; deeming it safer uptown where there was significantly less snow. Accessory-wise I wore 2 vintage necklaces + red rosette stud earrings passed down from my Grandmother, & a printed navy clutch with wooden handle. I bought this clutch when I was fifteen for $5 at Old Navy... & this is actually the first time I've ever used it believe it or not. I'm not quite sure how to describe, or sum up the outfit style, but I can tell you I loved it. Definitely put me in the mood for Springtime/Frühlingszeit (been working on my German all week; my head is a mess of vocabulary & a headache of foreign pronunciations)!


As lovely as yesterday's brilliant sunshine was, it was not exactly conducive to great photography. So while it looks like I did godawful things with the saturation/exposure, seriously just blame the sun (what you see is unedited; fixing these was beyond my skill haha). And if you're wondering why I look cold, it's because I was cold freezing. Wish I could teleport to a warmer climate right about now! One more month...





I was wearing:
Orange Batwing top - c/o OASAP (here)
Blue pleated palazzo pants - ASOS (old)
Navy patterned Clutch - Old Navy (old)
Necklaces - Vintage
Rosette Earrings - Vintage
Nude suede Foxy Platform - Jeffrey Campbell

  7. The two necklaces look really great on top of that orange. I've never had pants like that, but I'm totally digging yours. And I'm proud of you for wearing your Foxy's with them! :) At least all JC heels have that rubber bottom. I find it helps me a ton if the shoe is high or the wedge is wobbly. Although, I can't remember wearing them in the snow so I doubt the rubber helps. You're a trooper!

  10. So beautiful! I love your color choices. :)
    That clutch looks so heavy though! I could never use a clutch, I hate having stuff in my hands. that one looks super cute though. Is that wood as the top part? I think wooden pieces are really neat! I'd love a pair of wooden wedges some day.
