Red, more plaid and sweater clips.

In between writing up (yet more) assignments, I've been taking breaks to schedule some outfit posts. Hopefully I'll be able to start writing up some posts that are a bit more interesting sometime soon.

It's not often that I wear my hair down in its natural (i.e. uncurled) state but this was just one of those days I didn't want to do anything to it at all. Oh, and yes this is another plaid dress I've added to my collection! I wonder how many I have now?

Outfit details: cashmere cardigan - etsy; 1950s dress - etsy; sweater clip - etsy; belt - My Baby Jo; socks - Happy Socks; shoes - same ol' saddle shoes I always wear.

I've loved sweater clips for a while now but these are the first I've bought! They are, as many of my purchases, from etsy. I'll definitely be investing in more as I think they're a lovely touch to an outfit. From a few I've seen on their cards on etsy, I believe they were to keep the sweater from slipping off if you just wore it over your shoulders. But, they're obviously great as something purely decorative, too.

A rare smiley full length photo of me (mum took it); I like smiling I just don't like always doing it on cue - one of my pet peeves is when I'm sitting somewhere, thinking or maybe not, and someone comes along and tells me to smile! And I know I'm not alone in this as I've had discussions both online and off about it.

Love,
Andi B. Goode

  8. Perfect! Plaid + red + gray. My ideal outfit. You look so cute, and I love the sweater clips.

  10. What an obnoxious thing for someone to say to you! I've gotten told to stop looking angry before. I took a little makeup class once ages ago and the teacher said it's a curse of down-turned lips, she said that makes you look "perpetually pissed off". LOL

    I love the outfit, especially the dress. It's a particularly fantastic plaid!

  14. It is my personal opinion that a girl can never have too many plaid dresses or sweater guards!! You look lovely in both and the hair suited the outfit perfectly too.

  15. I love your blog, I can't believe I've only just found it! That plaid dress is gorgeous, I'd love one in that shade but without sleeves :)

    I also think that people who insist on others smiling is pretty stupid. I often get this bus driver who won't let you on and off the bus unless you smile...*cringe*

    And sweater clips are great. There are so many fab accessories on Etsy that cost barely anything.

  20. I love your toothy smile, plaid dress and super sweet sweater clips! Your matchy shoes and socks are a perfect addition to an already perfect outfit too. Seriously, why haven't I seen your blog until now because I think I'm in love and I'm off to scour your archives right now.

  21. Yay--another plaid dress! You should do a plaid dress roundup sometime--just to show off all your pretty plaid pieces. ;) I love the sweater clip too; I only own one but am itching to eventually add some more--they're so much fun to wear!

  23. Adorable sweater clips! I think they held the sweater on when you threw it over your shoulders like a cape?
