neighbor-wakin’, old bone-shakin’, Howlin’ Wolf hi-fi love

neighbor-wakin’, old bone-shakin’, Howlin’ Wolf hi-fi love

The more I think about it, the more I think I'm drawn to clogs for their hoof-like qualities. Clomp. Clomp. Clomp. People can hear me coming from a mile away with these clunkers on. Do you ever get attracted to unattractive things? I do pretty often. Scars. Asymmetricality. Garish prints. I don't know what it is, but sometimes there is something so satisfying about loving something unusual that others might shun. Strange...

Love Charles Vintage invited me to this awesome clothes swap that was started by Both Yellow Animals.  The pieces are such all so unique and fun to play with and it's been fun to see how past bloggers have styled them.  In this look I'm wearing the denim skirt - a denim skirt with volume? Amazing!

Cute clogs! I want the same ones... but I may be in over my head with the high heels for now. Your belt goes perfectly with your outfit!

Sutton said...

FASHION SNAG said...

Those clogs look fabulous on you! I love the skirt as well. I am attracted to a lot of things other people find ugly =) x

I love how playful this look is, and I don't even think the clogs are ugly -- I mean, maybe they are, but my eyes have adjusted, because I think they look divine on you!

Hannah said...

always a fan of clunky shoes! although they're usually limited to winter, so i might have to get my hands on some clogs...

Breanne at Bella Vita said...

I love shoes that you can clomp in! Great outfit as usual x

LoveCharlesVintage said...

Love love love how you styled the skirt! I still need to get my photos up. Very excited to see what else you come up with! You've got such an excellent sense for fashion.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Absolutely. Just think of McQueen's hoof shoes... anything but pretty in the conventional sense (and I do love my scars, too). Your clogs and outfit look fabulous. Happy weekend!

beckyxoxo said...

Hi dear! You look so lovely here! Love the dress and the denim jacket. You make me want to have a pair of clogs!

Leia said...

Oh my, you've got all the trends ticked here! Denim on denim, clogs...! Normally I don't like either of those trends but you seem to be able to pull off anything and still look amazing.

Love this outfit, as soon as i saw it when it came up on the followings update i had to click on it! haa. Clogs just always add a quirky factor to an outfit, i have ones similar and i totally understand what you mean about liking unusual things.

bestie said...

Omgosh how perfect is this outfit? Love the denim-on-denim, the peekaboo lace and really, you are rockin' those clogs like none other.

Celine said...

La Historiadora de Moda said...

Oh, man, every time you wear your JC clogs I get so jealous!

Dodo said...

I really wonder what it's like to walk in those :P They're probably something I would slip out of and fall flat on my face in the most awkward situation ever xD Next to that I still fighting the love-hate thing I have with them but I love the way you rock them!!

sophiasa said...

Great denim on denim look! The skirt is so cute. I love how swingy it is!

Taylor Sterling said...

Love the outfit. love the shoes! I have been waiting for my clogs in the mail for ever!!

thegoodgirlgoneblog.com said...

I know what you mean about loud shoes- I'm tiny, so the only way people know I'm coming is when they hear my shoes! Sometimes I like being loud, but other times it's awkward. As usual, great outfit :)

I would never say that these two colors, these fabrics will go together so well, I am tlaking about the denim and the skirt. Very nice.

megan.tme said...

The denim skirt is fabulous, I don't think I've seen anything like it before. Love how you styled it with clogs and chambray!

annamargrete said...

love how you wear the shirt!

Kate said...

I really love this skirt! Looks amazing on you! Love seeing a denim skirt that's not a tight mini... they're hard to come by!

Daphne said...

Love those big hooves. I feel like half my wardrobe is stuff that straddles the line between stylish and no-no. My boyfriend (and most men in general) would say it's all a no-no.
You look so lovely here, though. And I can't get over how perfect your hair always looks!

Sissy said...

Lovely girl. Apart from the clogs which I adore I really like how u pull off the jean blouse, just great!!!!

Kimberellie said...

Beautiful. Love the clogs. They really suit you. And YES. I so find myself attracted to unattractive clothes (usually garish prints!). There is something satisfying about it!

Erin said...

Beautifully styled, as always! I'm with you on the clog love- the sound is half the fun!

riennahera said...

Oh my,the clogs are truly wonderful. Though I cannot imagine walking in them.

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

Denim on denim is amazing. I still need to find the perfect denim shirt to do the whole denim on denim thing.

I agree. I love clogs for some random reason. I was at the store the other day and I pointed out the my friend that I wanted a pair of clogs and she gave me the weirdest look. Nonetheless, I don't care, i love clogs.

Sally Alexia said...
