peter pan and polka dots







Outfit Details:
scarf - vintage
peter pan blouse - local boutique, but ModCloth carries it, too
Paige Denim Polka Dot jeans - Shopbop
bow heels - $8.88 shoe store in Florida
Cynthia Vincent Berkeley tote - c/o Cynthia Vincent
Jungle Chic glasses - c/o Bonlook
lipstick - MAC Russian Red

If you want to see what a baby I am when I'm woken up from a nap, look no further than the second picture. I know, poor little Keiko, had to wake up from her mid-day siesta. Life's so rough! I'm rolling my eyes for all of us, don't worry. I'm not usually a nap person, but I just can't stay awake in a moving vehicle for long. And I don't do well with that whole "waking up" thing that people are so into. I find it to be a horribly jarring experience and would prefer to sleep right through it, thank you very much.

Stretchy jeans are my go-to for road trips and travels in general - as is the head scarf (tutorial here). But despite the comfort of their extra stretch, skinny jeans are not very flattering on my body type: big hips, thick thighs. I need a little something to balance all that out. But let's just go ahead and put this out there: I have a hard time resisting a pair of polka dotted jeans, okay? I can only do so much.

  11. Despite what you say, I think you look darling! Forget big hips, etc. You've got a great Christina Hendricks thing going on in these pics - all demure and curves for miles! That's a good thing by the way :)

  17. LOVE the peter pan collared blouse, I find this type of collar to be normally quite demure, but when paired with lace it's suddenly understated sexy!!
    Oh and I wouldn't be able to resist polka dots either!

  45. Skinny jeans don't look great on me either. :( But the polka dots give them a very cute extra flare!

    Have a great day, hun!

    Love the poka dots jeans! Comfy stretchy jeans are my best friend too when traveling, by car or flight. In fact, it's probably my go to piece anyway (travel or not :p)

  51. Just noticed the scarf tutorial, that is so simple! Thanks for sharing that -- I have a feeling I'm going to be wearing my hair in a scarf all summer now. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. If I could look half as good as you do in those jeans, I'd be happy! I was looking at the shots of you and thought you looked amazing!
    We all look different and have things we don't like about ourselves but at least your legs are all working and you're ok.xo

  56. I totally understand, I also have larger lady hips that prevent me from wearing colorful jeans or patterns. But, you've made me want to be brave and give it a shot!

  57. I love skinnies on curvier ladies (being one myself). I refuse to wear any other kind. I stick to dark washes though, I recently tried on a pair of mint jeans in the store and it was not pretty.

    You look fab here!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Would not have thought to pair a headscarf with a peter pan collar, but I totally love it! This looks is adorbs.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love the way you write your posts - I always find myself chuckling at something you said. As for those polka dot jeans - perfect. The best pair I've ever seen. I wouldn't be able to resist getting them, either.

  60. Oh pfew... and I thought I was the only one! I just can't keep my eyes open in any moving vehicle (especially cars), no matter how hard I try. But most of the time people don't wake me up... no, they wait until I awake from my car coma and then tell me how rude it is to fall sleep. I don't know what is worse?! Definitely not a nice way to wake up either ;-)

    And... lovely outfit, as always! Might have to pull my peter pan collar/lace top out of the closet. It's been a while.

  62. No way, girl, you can rock skinny jeans! I just thought you looked super-cute!

    ReplyDelete
  63. You look adorable! And as another lady with a little more going on in the hips and thighs (especially the thighs) I feel you with the skinny jeans. But we can't let that stop us! I've also found that mid-rise - besides being essential for the jeans actually FITTING me - tend to be a little better looking on me.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Do not take this the wrong way, but you look fantastic in these skinny jeans, and I'm not sure what you mean about skinny jeans not being flattering to your body type. Or sure your body type is quite what you think it is....

    You look gorgeous!

  67. Hallelujah thank you Keiko!

    Once upon a time there was me: a girl with narrow hipbones, but big hips, and rather chunky thighs. Plus, I’m a swimmer, so they’re MUSCLY. It doesn’t help that the boy in your life is a stickly little runner guy with legs the circumference of your calf. And you commented that your legs are always pale and bruised.

    THANK YOU for showing the style world that we don’t all have to be twigs. Plus, I think you look extra good in skinnies.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Bahhh I was gonna say those jeans make your legs look long, before I read that you think your thighs are hugs. Seriously. But I really love those jeans, I too have a huge love for polkadots and I need those ASAP! And by the way I don't see sleepiness in your face at all you always look bright and fresh.

    Xxoo
