OOTD | I Wear Your Granddad's Clothes

Jacket: Ali & Kris | Tee: F21 | Jeans: American Eagle | Shoes: Dolce Vita Lunna | Bullet necklace: ASOS | Watch: Fossil | Spike bracelet: ASOS

... at least if your gramps is the type to wear camo and loafers at the same time.
(And if you didn't catch on... I'm obsessed with this video. Especially 0:58... I die.)
^Don't click that if you're anti-rap music. Or the F word. Or adorable children on rap videos.

I've been consciously focusing on expanding my collection of flats. As a heels girl, it's hard for me to take off the stiletto-goggles when I shop -- seriously, it's like I have tunnel vision. But I'm starting to trust that flats that are "me" will jump off the page/rack and slap me in the face when I see them, and will therefore jump off my feet and slap everyone around me in the face with their Sam-ness when I wear them. And deep down, that's kind of what I want everything in my closet to do.

So the moral of the story? It's either "the shoes" (like "the one") will find you when you're not looking OR buy things that slap you.

  1. Obsessed with this outfit. And that video. The camo and stripes are perfect together, and you look pretty ballin' in your grandpa flats. That don't actually look like grandpa loafers at all.

  9. Okay that video was hilarious!

    Gotta remember to wait till something jumps up and slaps me. I'm too quick to just grab something that lazily saunters nearby and gives me a "whatever fool" shrug.

  11. I wasn't sure if you'd see the reply to your comment on my post...but my skirt is the off white one!

    1. Aww thanks for making sure! Yours looks way better than mine. I ordered the off white but it looks almost dirty pink in person. I guess that's the gamble you take on a $10 skirt!

  12. Bahahaha I just recently heard that song. So ridic. But kinda addicting..
    Love this look though! I like the colors going on here. And the camo. And the fact that those jeans fit you like a dream. <3

  14. My husband likes to pop his non-booty around the house and sing "I'm gonna pop some tags." I'm not sure he's ever been thrift shopping, but he's gonna pop some tags.

    I agree with Jessica: your hair...say whaaaat? Absolutely lovely.

    Finally, I looked at those jeans and thought, "I like those. They look familiar." I then realized it's because I own them. They're one of my favorite pairs to wear because they're so comfortable!

  15. Damn You!! I haven't been able to watch/listen to any other music since yesterday!! I think my fav line is "Aw, he got the Velcros"

    I'd hate to see my granddad in what you're wearing tho. He wouldn't do it justice ;-)

    1. YES!! THE SNEAKERHEADS LIKE OHHHH HE GOT THE VELCROS... except that line makes me want to go buy wedge sneakers and sing that song every time I wear them. I swear everything makes me shop :P

    1. Thanks Amy! I'm the exact same way. I always reach for heels, but flats need love too! Plus it's a nice break for the old footsies.

  17. You look amazing!!!!!!!!!! I love camo, and those shoes are to die for. I had those on my shoe lust list for fall. I never ended up getting them, but love love love em.
    There was a time in my life where I had a flat phobia, but I've overcome it now that I've got kids.
    You could call buying several pair of amazing flats desensitization therapy. Hey, if it's treatment it shouldn't count as excessive shopping.

    1. Oh my gosh, if you can find them on sale somewhere you should totally get a pair. They're so comfy, and the cap toe makes me less iffy about the loafer thing. I am in loooove :) AND STOP FEEDING MY SHOPPING ADDICTION... you just make so much sense ;)

  18. So those jeans must have jumped off the rack and jumped on you Sam... I think it was love at first sight when they disovered this pretty girl walking by ;-). You have to tell me the specific name of the jeans, I want some love affair with them too hahahaha ;-). And those slippers are soooo hefnerishish, love em'- NEED em -BAM!
    Love me some edgy girly mix going on there, you nail it!

    Sorry for my long absence friend not feeling very good recently :-(
    Hope you are doing great girl

  23. Could you be any prettier? You look stunning in this photo and I absolutely adore this look. I guess I'm taking a trip to f21 to buy yet ANOTHER stripe shirt, no two stripes are the same. Am I right?
