Sartorial Saturday–More Peasant Top Pairings

It’s been a long time since I shared how versatile Pinup Girl Clothing’s peasant tops are, so I’m back with the Baton Rouge version…and this isn’t even ALL of the skirts I have with which it pairs well!

I also love the way various brooches pop against the deep pink color:

What color peasant top do you wear most frequently?

Sartorial Saturday…On a Sunday–Easter Dressing

Since today is Easter, I’m sharing my Sartorial Saturday post a day late, so I can focus on Easter fashion!

I’m not going to lie…I really struggled to decide what I wanted to wear this year. But a Pinup Girl Clothing sale that allowed me to buy a Sabrina top in the perfect shade of mint to go with my castles Jenny skirt was the solution to my sartorial ennui.

Once I figured out the outfit, the accessories were pretty easy, although I did struggle a bit with my Splendette stack. In the end, I think pastel glitter was the perfect choice for Easter!

Did I mention that spring hasn’t really arrived here yet? The three-quarter sleeves definitely helped ward off the chill!

Happy Easter!

Mary Blair Monday

Time to kick off Mary Blair Week (a week I invented as the high point of Mary Blair March, which is a time to wear all of my favorite Pinup Girl Mary Blair prints and celebrate the life and work of that talented artist!) with a Mary Blair Monday outfit. I’m wearing the yellow train print Jenny skirt because it is the first Mary Blair print I purchased, and was what really introduced me to her art.

I decided to go bold with my Splendette bangle stack:

And while this Erstwilder brooch isn’t a Mary Blair piece, it is whimsical enough to fit right in with the outfit!

I’m looking forward to wearing more great Mary Blair pieces (and seeing the outfits other people put together) all week long!

Sartorial Saturday–St. Patrick’s Day Style

St. Patrick’s Day is only a week away! It’s one of my favorite holidays, and it just happens to fall during Mary Blair March. I have one Pinup Girl Clothing skirt that combines the color green with the artwork of Mary Blair…the boat print Jenny!

I decided to go with a bold, contrasting color on top, and I think it’s a really fun look. I also found as many green accessories as possible, including my favorite Splendette Duchess glitter bangles and a frog brooch from Erstwilder. And while the necklace may not have any green, it pretty much goes with everything!

What’s your favorite way to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day?

Sartorial Saturday–Festive Fashion

The 12 Days of Christmas are officially over, but I’m here with one last look at all of my festive fashions from this season!

Last year, I focused mainly on red & green and blue & white outfits, with one Christmas print thrown in. This time around, I’m focusing on one Christmas print, the gorgeous ornament border print Bella skirt from Pinup Girl Clothing, and all of the different ways I styled it.

I went with solids on top…white, black, and red:

I also wore stripes…pink & white, black & white, and red & white:

Of course I accessorized. I focused on my festive Splendette stacks last week, so here’s the rest…beautiful necklaces and always my Christmas tree brooch!

I have had so much fun wearing this print…I’m going to have to find a few ways to sneak it into my wardrobe before next Christmas!

Sartorial Saturday–Ornamented

I tried to resist, but I guess there was really no doubt that I was going to buy the new Pinup Girl Clothing Bella skirt in ornament print, with artwork by Terry Runyan. Just look at it…it’s gorgeous in its mid-century fabulousness!

Accessories were no problem, and I didn’t even have to buy anything new (although, if I ever found a brooch that matched one of the ornaments, I’m sure I’d add it to my collection!). My Splendette stack includes some beautiful glitter bangles in red and green, and I even have a matching red necklace. Of course I’m always looking for a reason to wear my favorite brooch, which is the perfect touch to finish off the outfit!

For a touch of whimsy, the Christmas lights necklace Ryan bought for me last weekend is a nice addition, too!

This is definitely my favorite Christmas-themed piece of clothing. I love the print on the skirt I purchased from The Oblong Box Shop last year, but the fit isn’t awesome, and I don’t love the material it’s made of. This skirt, however, check all the boxes, and I adore it!

This might be an over-the-top look for some people, but as the Christmas Queen, I think it’s just right! I’m looking forward to pairing it with some other tops throughout the month, including solid red, and both pink & white and red & white stripes! I’ll be looking festive all Christmas long!

Sartorial Saturday–That’s a Wrap

When I shared pictures of the beautiful harlequin skirt I ordered from Pinup Girl Clothing with the store credit I received for winning honorable mention in the PUG Changed My Life contest, I promised to also share pictures of the second shirt I purchased to go with it. I then kind of forgot about it, what with all the House Harlequins excitement!

Anyway, I finally remembered, so here it is…the Wonderful Wrap Top in a gorgeous shade of pink!

I really wanted something different from my usual peasant and Harley tops, and I thought this fit the bill perfectly. I love the color and the collar, and I really love the idea of a wrap top. It is a little fussy, though, so I had to help it along with a little fashion tape to prevent gaping. It would probably look better if I could tie it tighter and have the tails hang down a little more dramatically, but I don’t mind…I still think it’s a fun top, and different from anything else in my closet!
