The Lid

Sweater: Target
Skirt: Thrifted F21
Boots: Frye Melissa Button
Belt: Target

Today was the wrong day to be wearing a long sleeve sweater, tights and boots, even though I swore the weather forecast this morning said rains and a high of 55. Felt kind of awkward when I passed by a girl in a tank top.

And that lens flare making my skirt all weird colored in the first picture? I tried to Photoshop it out, but was unsuccessful.. so I guess it makes it "artsy" or whatever.

I took my pictures at The Lid on Mercer Island today, and I tried to Google what these big giant things are behind me, but I truly have no idea. Any of you Seattle people know? I think it may have something to do with the fact that the freeway runs underneath the park. Air thingys? Beats me.

Did you enter my secret giveaway yet? I'm giving away an in-store American Apparel voucher, so go here to enter. Giveaway closes on Friday!

  1. I love the green color of your sweater. For some reason it reminds me of Easter bunnies. Don't ask me why, I have no idea.

  4. that shamrock green is so pretty on you! If I were you I'd just say those things are a sculpture. They might as well be, right?

  5. I love everything about this outfit - the color combination, the tiny belt, the boots and even how it all coordinates with your photo background! I'm copying this outfit asap.

  8. So Monday I threw a fit and refused to wear tights and was FREEZING and then yesterday I succumbed to (what I thought) the weater and wore a wool skirt, tights, boots and a scarf. I was almost mad at the sun.

  9. This is the issue with spring...weather is windy at times but its also sunny and that makes you sweat if you were wearing a thin short sleeve cardigan with 69% wool like me! No wonder I was heating up. People wear all sorts of stuff in spring. I saw this girl wearing some black short tube dress that was so indecent. It barely covered her bum and she was flashing her underwear as she ran to cross the street. Sorry for the rant....

  10. I swear once it hits 60's in Cleveland people think it's shorts weather. If you find out what those things are you'll have to tell us. They are so random

  11. lol, your story reminds me of when i visited Portland a couple years ago in April and it was 55 degrees out and i saw someone in a tank top and shots while I was layered in 2 sweaters and my heavy winter coat. and still shivering inside the Starbucks too! i guess "warm weather" is all relative right? :)

    and you look great in green! the belt is a great addition too!

    cute & little

  14. Air thingys, yes, that sounds about right. And I totally know what you mean about other people dressing for radically different weather than you even though you're standing right next to them...I am constantly looking at bare feet on the bus like SRSLY it's 34 degrees?!

  15. Lol! I don't like that feeling of "Darn it! I could have worn a tank top today?!" when it is too late. :(

    I love the color palatte you put together here. That bright blue can be a difficult one to pull off, but you look amazing in the color! And amazing what just a belt can do for an outfit!

  19. The color of that sweater's so pretty! I never know how to dress in the spring and fall, so I usually end up with more layers than needed and am sweating before I even get to class.

  20. The lid totally makes me think of the hatch, which makes me think of lost and desmond again. sigh. twice in one week - I'm a lucky girl.

    Ignoring the "turned-beautiful" weather (that happened to me Sunday), I love this outfit, and love the pop of colour! Also, does MF have the same sweater?? If so, I would like to join your sweater club.

  21. Your style is way tooo cute! I saw your blog from Monkeyface :) Great pics!

  22. Haha, if only there was a Desmond underneath there pushing the button every 108 minutes...

    I think MF (I giggle everytime I use that now) has a similar colored sweater that she wears (like here) but her's is from F21. :)
