May 14, 2011 (Swapday): Black, Creme, Yellow

Photos: Kev
Top: Vintage thrift ($3)
Pants: H&M ($9)
Necklaces: Madewell & Black Sparrow
Bracelets: Borrowed from Punky
What I wore to the Swap: really comfy clothes. It's been flipping cold lately and all I wanted to be was comfortable, and that's what I got. I've been looking for printed trousers at thrift stores lately but haven't found any to my liking, but I love these cheap-os from H&M! Mainly I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a trend i wasn't sure I would like, I like the printed pant look on others, but I'm more of a jeans, skirts, dresses girl.

This outfit was perfect for what the day brought with it. I got up early, helped set up for the swap and then got to swapping (and then cleaning up). This outfit was easy to move in and kept me at a generally good temperature throughout the day. To add a little color to the black and creme, I threw on some of Punky's woven bracelets. I also cannot recommend the Casita wedges from Blowfish enough, they are the perfect height and super comfortable.
Ps- a BIG thank you to Kev of Jenloveskev for the photos!

After seeing all of the swapping pictures, I am anxious to attend my first one in Chicago! I'm hoping sooner rather than later this summer.

Those printed pants are awesome and look super comfy! Actually, they're kind of close to your skin tone so I thought you were wearing lacy tights or something. How scandalous! Haha. :D
