Outfit of the Day: Faux Scalloped Edge and Sporty Spice

Yesterday was exciting as it was the day we got the keys to our new place. We don't move for a little over a week but it was fun to do a final walk through and see it empty one last time!

When I went and visited home for a week I went through my mom's closet and found this top. She came home from work and saw me wearing it and joked about how I'd gone through her closet, but I thought that the top was just so pretty and I didn't think that if I asked her if I could have it that she'd say yes. So, I was just going to enjoy my day wearing it...until she said that if I liked it, I could have it because she never wore it. Score! 

I love the high neckline and the ruffles and scallops running over it- it feels so flapper-esque! 

I love the look of tucking the top into the pants and leaving the scalloped edge hanging off, it's just so dainty and girly.

I had actually gotten a coupon from New York and Company that said you could get any pair of pants (besides denim) for $10. That's it. No buy a pair, get a pair for 10. You just get a pair for 10 off the bat. I have shopped there before but it had been a while, this coupon though, got my mom and I in there fast!

I tried this pair on and I didn't know how I was going to style them. Every time I tried them on I felt like Sporty Spice! I think it's the elastic waste and drawstring that made them feel like something athletic. Don't get me wrong- Sporty Spice was always the one I felt as if I identified with, even though I don't play sports or like wearing tennis shoes...yeah, I don't get it either. It just wasn't the look I was going for, okay? haha

After a while of not wearing them I was determined to make them work so I tucked my shirt in, just to give it a try and it was like magic! Suddenly, almost anything I wore with them looked...right. You guys know what I mean when you put something on and it either looks "right" or it doesn't?

I like that the black pants add a tiny bit of edge and the chains on the bag add a little more. I'm pretty minimalistic when it comes to accessories, so I didn't even wear a watch. I felt like the details on the shirt and the headband were enough so I just wore the thin gold bracelet I wear everyday. 

The headband I paired with the outfit is beaded and I thought it would  play off of the black/silver theme and the flapper vibe I get from the top well.

Together, it all just felt right.
