High & Wide


I'll call this my Anna outfit.  Not only was she so extremely thoughtful to send me this gorgeous, vintage blouse, but I purchased these fab trousers while thrifting with her as well.  How pretty are these ruffles?  The color.  The print.  I love it.  Can't wait to style it for Spring weather!

I was so thrilled over these high-waisted, wide-leg pants, but they were waaaaayyy too long for my legs.  I had my handy mama take them up a few inches and STILL...I'm wearing 4" heels here.  I love how flowy and romantic this look is, but next time, I'm going to style them with a contrasting belt and chunky boots for a more funky/casual look.

Blouse:  Vintage, thrifted & gifted by Anna
Pants:  thrifted via ARC's Value Village
Shoes (unseen):  Nine West via DSW

Anna said...

YES! Yes! Yes! This outfit is fantastic! And those pants?? SO amazing! I feel so honored to have this outfit be named after me. I knew that blouse had your name all over it when I saw it. Let's go thrifting again soon!

That blouse! Those pants! I love the look. I'm really liking wide leg pants right now, such a fresh departure from leggings and jeggings and skinnies!

That first picture made me think you were wearing a long skirt and that would have been oh so cute too, but loving the fact they are pants! I swear you look skinnier everytime I see you, how are you losing weight...what's the secret!

Thanks ladies!

Ashley J: I have no idea! I haven't actually lost pounds that I'm aware of, but my weight has definitely shifted in the last few months. I wish I knew what was causing it!

Emily said...

Ooooh, I love this! The pants are so flattering and the color of the shirt is beautiful. Love, love, love!

Lauren said...

I die, I die, I die - That shirt is SO gorgeous and I wish it wasn't vintage/thrifted so that I could go find one exactly like it somewhere!! That is like my favorite color, with my favorite pattern - And it has ruffles!!

This is one of my all-time fav outfits!
