Uncharacteristic Clothing Purchases

When it comes to buying clothing, I usually stick to cream/lace/denim. But recently, I've been straying from my classic choices. Baggy floral pants, a super-flouncy sleeved top and a caftan (!!!) - my latest purchases are all over the place! There is one common theme though - each piece is featherlight and addictively soft.

I'm not usually a fan of baggy pants - but when you try these floral Le Chateau pants (similar), you won't want to take them off! The fabric is so soft and cool to the touch - I want to wear them ALL the time.

I bought this caftan to wear on my imaginary vacation - doesn't it look like it was made for lounging around at a fancy resort?

And here is my super-flouncy blouse - every time I'd go to H&M, I'd try this on, decide that the sleeves were too fussy, and leave without it. After trying it on for the THIRD time, I decided to ignore my practical side and just embrace the flounces!

This outfit is more like my usual summer style - eyelet top, jeans and metallic sandals. I'm not too pleased with the proportions of this top - you can't tell from the picture, but the shoulders are a bit too broad and the waist a bit too narrow. H&M have an identical one that I plan to try on in store soon. By the way - if you're interested in winning this pink bag - don't forget to enter here.

  1. I think lately my uncharacteristic choice is that off the shoulder top I featured! Oh and my plaid rails shirt since I'm not much of a plaid person.

    The floral pants look so cute on you! I really think that outfit suits you. Also the caftan which I envision on a tropical island :)

  4. LOL, caftan was one of the words on my kids' spelling list recently and they didn't know what it was. I will have to show them your pic! Fun seeing the items that are "outside the box" for you! I purchased TWO atypical items recently but haven't received them yet so we'll see what happens!

  5. You look adorable!!! I purchased a new flowy cotton shirt recently that is a red and white floral print. It looked really cute in store but I purchased without trying on. I wasn't as lucky when I wore it. It looked a little like blood splatter! Oh well! I have a sister who is more adventurous than I am. Maybe I will purchase a similar on for her for her up coming birthday =)
