My Velouria


Hey, it's my day off - I figured I might as well dress outrageously as possible while I've got the chance! We had a ripping thunderstorm today and our power went out for a couple hours, so I shacked up with some blankets and read Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. The movie may have been epic, but nothing really compares to the books.

PJ Harvey Shirt: eBay
Floral leggings: I Heart Norwegian Wood
Ankle boots: thrifted

I'm in love with those leggings . . . but if I had them I think i'd do something stupid like pair them with some frilly dress and I'd look awful. Your outfit's just perfect.

Looks like a perfect day off outfit. Comfy, but totally badass. Thunderstorms are awesome. It finally rained here and I realized how much I missed crappy weather. Sadly there was no thunder, but we did have some lightning awhile back when it was all dry, which is a little scary. Love the PJ Harvey shirt.

Nice and Shiny said...

Umm, nothing else will compare to THOSE LEGGINGS!! Sooo good, with the tee and the boots?!? Just perfection.

I loved HBP too, I'm pretty sure I laughed the loudest in the whole theatre... all 3 times I went.

Your pose in the second photo is classic! I lurve it.

Hrm, I may very well try this oversized band tee and floral leggings mix sometime. It looks very comfortable and as always, you make it look f-awesome.

P.S. My word verifaction is "gumstate." Sounds like a good '90s twee band.

Leah said...
