Outfit Post: Tam-Print-Stripe-Plaid Bam

Bright is not how I've been dressing lately. I've become friends with the flat and the practical, realizing that cute high heeled shoes don't walk well up or down steep soggy hills. And lately, I live on a hill. Layered wooly things and jeans with bulky coats are, out of practicality, what you'd see me in, were you to run into me offline. So this morning, inspired by Patti and the Visible crew, I decided to doll up and wear favorites, not practicals. 

Viola.



A wintery play of red, white and blue. Wooly vintage Tam, vintage scarf, thrifted sweater and skirt. And magick shoes. Bam. 

Thank you, Patti for reminding me that to feel visible one must dress to be seen. 

Now Wearing: 
  • vintage Tam, thrifted
  • vintage scarf, Scout Living
  • lambswool pullover, thrifted
  • plaid skirt with tulle, thrifted
  • black tights, get yours HERE
  • booties, c/o Nordstoms via gift card

See me over at Visible Mondays over at Patti's Not Yet Dead Style

Thank you for being visible today Bella because you look amazing!! I adore the bold blue booties with the tartan and plaid prints.

Kristy said...

So cute! I know what you mean about practical everyday wear! Hard to blog about daily fashion when every day fashion always involves "practical" stuff.

Debbi@SheAccessorizesWell said...

Ah Bella, what a wonderful chic outfit with a very French vibe. I adore it. The bow on the skirt, oh my, how adorable!

Terri said...

Oh, I love the skirt and that wedge heel on the bootie is probably more walking and hill-climbing friendly than it might seem.

Sara said...

Loving it!!! Absolutely amazing!!! And those shoes rock!

The Style Crone said...

Doll up indeed! You're looking very visible today, with your tam, scarf, the bow on your skirt and the brilliant blue booties. Your creativity is always a pleasure for the senses.

Sheila said...

Those are totally magic shoes! I love the vibrant blue. Too fun.

I hope you got some of the sun we had this past weekend!

Heather Fonseca said...

Love that plaid skirt! Sometimes the weather is a bore. When it gets really hot here I don't know what to wear. I just end up in shorts and tank tops every day. You need some brings rain coats!

JaninJabitt said...

Magic shoes (check!) No chance of invisibility here, and in the cutest way. Beautiful, really. Enjoy the rest of your holidays, and very good business luck. You clearly have the Karma for it!

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

I lived 42 years in a cold climate, and it works to be unpractical. Forced to endure constant comments such as "there is no bad weather only bad clothing" (in Swedish, it rhymes), but I can live with them ... Stay visible and unpractical!

Hang T. Tran said...

you're living on a hill? sounds good. It's very flat here where I live.
You look great Bella! Sometimes it's nice to wear impractical yet stunning clothes ^_^
Love,
Hang

Sacramento Amate said...

Carina Rosenholm said...

Oh what an amazing skirt ! And the colours of the shoes makes it "pop" !

Adrienne Shubin said...

Darling skirt! Do you know about the monthly post Jill of Everything Just So and I do? We pick one item, or color, or trend and ask people to send us photos of themselves wearing said trend, color or item. December's theme is plaid! Would you mind if we use your look on our post December 4th? Let me know when you have a moment. That skirt is just perfect! xo, A

menopauselsupermodel said...

OOOOO La La--you look like you should be in a cafe in Paris sipping a latte!!
Love the outfit and those boots are cool beans!!

seƱora Allnut said...

lovely color combo and fabulous mixed prints, you're so talented and gorgeous. Love your striped beret!
besos

Beryl said...

Jeans might be a little better, but if you can get a pair of wool tights, you'll be able to wear your dresses most of the Seattle Winter.
That black and blue striped sweater is terrific on you. When I saw that your heading had the word "plaid" in it, I was a little afraid you'd gone over to the Seattle grunge side. Silly me - I needn't have worried.

Amber of Butane Anvil said...

Nicely done, Bella! You look smashing in your tam, scarf, skirt, and electric booties. I like how you articulate the effects of the process of settling in to your new home.

janiece said...

Just gorgeous!

kaffesoester said...

I wasn't sure if I actually posted a comment yesterday, and now I see that I didn't - So, here you are: Your skirt is adorable, and the pattern mix is perfect! Best of all though are you little blue booties! They're awesome!

Lyosha said...
