Outfit of the Day: Retro Spring Style

I’m so sorry to have been on hiatus for so long! But good things are in store:  I finally bought a DSLR camera + tripod + remote. Which means I’ll no longer be using my shotty iPhone camera for outfit shots, and I won’t have to rely on anyone to take photos for me anymore. (Plus, I’m really awkward when I have pictures taken by other people, kind of like that episode of Friends when Chandler has trouble naturally smiling in photos).

My awkward factor didn’t completely dissapate in these photos, as Jordan and I were on the way to dinner, and I asked Jordan to take a few shots of my outfits. I’d say he did a damn good job for a first timer; he was so into taking pictures that he kept taking them the rest of dinner. He took some pretty unsightly photos of me eating that’ll make their place in a scrapbook one day.

We’ve finally got some Spring weather down in Charleston. I’ve been aching for this moment since I first started buying pastel dresses and sandals in January (I like to plan ahead). I went into Forever 21 after work the other day, and I swooned over this strawberry print blouse. Isn’t it just perfect for Spring? They didn’t have a small (*insert cry-face*), but the oversized fit allowed me to size up to a medium without the blouse looking completely weird. I may ask my friend Marie if she wants to go strawberry-picking again this year; now I’m getting a photo theme in mind (I’m such a dork).
I’m also a big fan of contrast in my outfits. When wearing something loose & flowing up top, I prefer to wear a tighter fit on the bottom. It really brings attention to my figure (yowsas!) and creates a balance to the ensemble.  The airiness of the shirt is a great juxtaposition to the weight of the denim below.

 Outfit Details:
Strawberry Blouse – Forever 21
Super High-Waisted Jean Shorts – eBay
Flower Crown – DIY
Platform Shoes – ModCloth
Fox Ring – Forever 21
Scallop Bag – ASOS

 

 

Every time I wear these shorts, I feel like I should be on the set of Now & Then–not to mention paired with my curly pixie cut. Retro chic, baby!
I hope everyone had a nice holiday. The kids around here are on Spring Break this week, so I have a feeling that I’ll be seeing a lot of action at work in the next few days. I’ll be sure to make time for posts though, honest!
‘Til next time, kittens.

Outfit of the Day: Blog Relaunch + a Cease-and-Desist Letter

 Meow meow, all my little kittens, and thank you for checking out the OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF COVERED IN CAT HAIR! *Hooray* I’ve been eager to (re)launch my blog for ages now, and I’ve finally gotten to a point where 1)I feel as though I have a wardrobe that reflects my personal tastes, 2) I know what I want to feature on my blog & how to organize it effectively, and 3) I’m on a semi-regular work schedule and can find time to take photos and post content. Yahoo!

 My boyfriend is currently touring, and he caught some of the nasty storms that are passing through from the Midwest to this way (down in the good ol’ south). The good news is that I, miraculously, didn’t catch any rain on my day off (Usually it always rains on my days off, or maybe I’m just that much of a pessimist…) and the wind aided the movement of my skirt in these photos. I live in South Carolina, so the winters (if I should even use that term) are generally mild; when I took these photos, it was in the 70s. I love where I live sometimes.

I recently purchased this high-low skirt at Target, which by the way has severely stepped up their game in the home + clothing departments, and realized that it is the only high-low skirt I own. For shame, because it’s wonderfully flowy & comfortable, AND it has polka dots on it—my obsession, as you’ll come to find out as CICH progresses. I think I’m going to use this skirt as a pattern to make my own using this gorgeous lavender silk fabric I picked up over the summer.

 And here I am looking a bit aloof. Have I mentioned that I’m not very photogenic?
  Sometimes I like to talk while pictures are being taken, and thus is the (hilarious) end result. If only I could remember what was being said…
Top – Forever 21
Skirt – Target
Shoes – Shoe Carnival? Maybe? They’re pretty old, and I have a terrible memory…
Flower Wreath – DIY
Collar Clips – Christmas Gift
My friend Marie lived in Austin, TX for a little while & was nice enough to pick me up some really cute collar clips for Christmas from a secondhand store. Those clips + this sweater = a match made in heaven. Troofin’. She knows my grandma-chic style so well.

Thanks for stopping by and for giving Covered in Cat Hair a shot. I’d like to take this blog and my dreams to big places, so stay tuned for more awesomeness to come. (I literally have a notebook full of ideas; GET EXCITED).
Editor’s Note: Not long after I established Covered in Cat Hair, I got a cease-and-desist from a lawyer as the name had already been trademarked. I’m pretty sure that blog doesn’t exist anymore, which I find pretty hilarious.
