To be honest, I wasn’t planning on posting photos of this outfit. I had shared them with some friends a few weeks ago, but I wasn’t sure how this would be received on the blog because everyone is used to seeing me in pretty dresses. But then I realized how silly that mentality was! This blog is about my inspirations and fancies, and this is just a much part of me as the “other” looks. This is how I dress some days when the mood strikes me–just like the days when I wear vintage 50s dresses. A few weeks ago this was me dealing with lots of post-move stress, a husband who had just gotten back from deployment, and I didn’t feel in the mood to pull out a dress that day. It’s just as “authentic Casey” as the days I wear super high heels and tie-neck blouses with a vintage hat perched atop my head! So I hope you’ll enjoy seeing this “other” side of me (the one that is just as much a part of me as the girly-girl side!)–and a rare sighting of me in jeans! lol.
This is a very simple look and something I wore at the beginning of the month when it was cold but sunny, and I felt in the mood to wear some modern jeans. Now, these jeans were a total impulse purchase at Forever 21–a store I rarely buy clothing at. But they fit my curvy backside better than the more expensive jeans I had been shopping for, plus they have a subtle leopard print that I was smitten with! From far away they look like a mottled grey, but up close they’re leopard! Lots of fun on days I’m feeling “wild”. hehe! Paired with a classic cashmere cardigan and a vintage Liberty of London scarf, and it tones down the leopard just a bit and goes a bit more with my vintage aesthetic I like to infuse into every outfit!
What is your favorite “wild” piece in your wardrobe?
