Because I like to keep a cache of outfit photos, the outfits I post here are rarely the outfits I wear on a given day. (Exception: When I forget about EBEW or BDIB and wear the theme the day of. Then I have to get up earlier to shoot, edit and post the photos all at once.) Anyway, the point I was trying to make is that because of this cache, I often wind up with an incongruity between the day's weather and the outfit that I post that day.

For example, if I were actually wearing this outfit today, my toes would be the color of my shirt. This was taken during our freak heat wave last month, when temps were hitting record-breaking numbers in the 80s. And today? It's currently just above freezing, and not scheduled to get too much warmer in the afternoon. Boo.



shirt: secondhand
pants: New York & Company
sandals: Target
tie-worn-as-a-belt: thrifted

In high school, I used to wear ties with T-shirts in an attempt to be somewhat punk. I still maintain that it didn't actually look too bad. So when I saw this tie at Goodwill a while back, I got far too nostalgic and bought it. It's actually pretty cute, and I'm tempted to wear it as an actual tie at some point...I just have to figure out how to make it look not like teenage-me and not like the man-version of me. You gotta love a good challenge!

What about you? Any trends from younger-you days that you want to re-create, but are hesitating on?


  1. I love New York & Company pants. They are the best!

  2. I used to wear some ties as belts as well. I'm still pretty sure that I looked totally awesome. I haven't really tried it since but I think this one is totally working for you.

  3. I love the tie as a belt! You look so cute!
    I definitely used to dress in an effort to be "punk" too. I had the sweat-wrist-band things and worse a hole-punched guitar pick around my neck. Heck yes, I was the coolest....... Yeah, I don't necessarily want to bring these back from my childhood :P

  4. Beautiful. The top looks great and the tie/belt works nicely. Great outfit.
