Outfit 58 - Plaid Button-Up Tunic

Sorry I've been MIA!!  The weather has taken a turn for the worse....okay, not super bad, but it has gotten a lot colder, and I admit I'm kinda a pansy once cold weather hits and terribly uncreative, outfit-wise.  So, I'm going to try to challenge myself to create better outfits that aren't just jeans + plain long-sleeved shirt + scarf + jacket.  I'll attempt to give my short-sleeved shirts some love!  Anyway, this is an old outfit post I've had laying around for awhile.  I would definitely NOT go out with bare legs in this weather!  :P 

This Forever21 tunic is one of those purchases where I knew it wasn't going to last, in terms of quality, but it's thrifted, so it makes it slightly okay!  Have you ever bought anything that you knew was going to fall apart?  It's true what they say about Forever21 and their quality, but there are SOME things that surprisingly last.  I cannot come up with an example yet.  I'll let you know when I encounter that item!

I saw lots of potential when I first thifted this purple vest.  I mainly picked it up because it was from Express, and it was this bright purple that I love!


Since then, I've had trouble incorporating it into my wardrobe.  I feel like the straps in the front are awkwardly narrow.


Sparkly belt and glittery shoes! That's one way to draw subtle attention to myself!  The cardigan looks kinda bulky in this picture!  >_<

  2. lol, I don' think I've ever bought anything that I knew would fall apart. Although I do buy lots of things that I didn't know would fall apart after a that's annoying! I see potential in that vest! I can see it looking lovely with a strappy flower dress maybe!

  3. Hey, welcome back! That vest is lovely, and it can definitely jazz up a jeans + shirt + scarf outfit!
