I went down to the garden

It's been a fairly mellow week aside from a surprise (albeit brief) visit from a friend of mine who lives in Seattle. He's actually from Sweden originally, married an American and they now live in Seattle.  Anyway, it's been a few years since we've been face to face so it was a lovely surprise! Other than that it's been work, music, pups and movies...and clothes.

I've seen this h&m blouse making the rounds on a few blogs but I really like the fit and the color of it so I thought I'd post it anyway. I don't have many peach items hanging in my closet but once I tried it on I couldn't let it go!  I do I wonder if I was possibly (subconsciously) thinking of the artwork on Karen Elson's album when I bought this - it has almost the exact dusty peach color throughout the booklet (yes, I buy actual albums - because I'm old school like that). Once I made the peach connection it seemed obvious that I needed to wear the cute pin I got at her show last week with this outfit.

Oh, and I should mention I wore this to work - hence the blazer and the tights. tights + shorts = safe for work.

outfit details:
shorts & blouse: h&m
boots: steve madden
blazer: gift from "the Brit"

oh, why not a little Karen Elson to go along with the theme...

Great outfit! Even though shorts/tights and that blouse are blogger favorites, it still looks amazing.

This peach and black outfit would fit right in with Karen Elson's band and new album. You could hope right onto the picture on the back of the album without a problem.
