Flares and Stripes

If you’ve been to my blog before, you know I’m drawn to color. That’s why I mixed so many colors (and a couple of patterns) together in this outfit. I just can’t help it!

Jacket: Macy’s
Sweater: Swapped
Tank: Target
Flares: Thrifted
Shoes: Thrifted

I’ve worn these flares before (with denim, stripes, and a poncho). This time, I mixed in houndstooth.


Of course, I also added stripes, and a bright, layered tank. I made my necklace out of another, less interesting necklace. Is that DIY or reassembly? Either way, I’m happy with the results.

I do wear black sometimes, but when I do so, I’m less likely to take time to pose for outfit shots. That’s the real reason you see me in so much color. It’s funny. At some points in my life, you’d be hard-pressed to find color in my closet at all. These days, I can dress in all colors, without hesitating. It’s like a fashion pendulum. Could swing back one day. But for now, I’m enjoying playing with colors.

I’ve linked up with Style Elixir,  DC in Style and Thrifters Anonymous today. See what the others are wearing!

  1. Love the flares! Sometimes we all need some color in our lives 🙂

  2. Colour.. who doesn’t love colour, not me. The brighter the better I do believe

  3. That’s why I like your outfits–never boring or bland! You spice up jeans and casual clothes with colour and unique accessories. Very mod look, takes me back to the 60s! My fave decade! ♥
