Not A Halloween Costume

Happy halloween! Just kidding. Actually only sort of just kidding, because I look like an actual pirate in this. I found this shirt at a rummage sale, and couldn’t resist its pin tucks and billowy nature. I teamed it with my beloved Levi’s, which are beloved despite the fact that they don’t actually really fit (I recently have found a properly fitting pair of jeans from a brand whose name rhymes with shmeverlane, and there will be a review coming soon!) and have a hole in the back pocket from holding my phone. Such is life when you’re a millennial. The neckline of this blouse is practically begging for a necklace, so I put it out of it’s misery by layering some thrift store necklaces with it. And then I remembered that famous french fashion rule- before you leave the house, take one thing off, and then I remembered my American passport, and happily added a big scarf as a headband a la Serena Van der Woodsen. Sometimes, more is absolutely more.

One thought on “Not A Halloween Costume

  1. Hi Sarah! I love your outfit, and despite it being not very Halloweenesque, I think it’s actually quite accurate with the pirate resemblance! Pirate à la millenial, I would say!

    I completely understand you with the no-fitting-at-all pair of jeans. I found that thrift stores are the best places to find boyfriend or more baggy pairs of jeans but, if you are looking for some to really fit you perfectly, you’ll have to deal with more than one headache to find THAT pair!

    Hope you are having a great week so far!
