So, let me tell you the story of this outfit. I was looking for something to wear to church and I was going crazy because the mold! Oh my gosh! Why do things get moldy as soon as they enter this region! Mold, mold, mold. If you've never lived in the cloud rainforest in a house with no heating of any kind, let me tell you: stuff gets moldy pretty much instantly.

Every week or two, I go through the closet and pull out all the stuff that smells moldy or actually has mold growing on it, because, yes, that's possible. Sunday, thanks to the amount of rain we've had lately, I filled our hamper with stuff that smelled suspect. It made me want to cry (I think I wailed to B about "Oh my gosh, the MOLD!") and it also distracted me from the outfit that I actually wanted to wear.

Somehow, in the last few minutes before church, this came together. And guess what? It worked! I loved it. It felt fresh and fun. I know I turned some heads as I was walking home past the soccer field because of the tights. Of course, the floral head scarf was a close second when it came to attention getting.


  1. I love this outfit. So edgy, yet it really pulled together well. Those must be the neon pink tights you tweeted about. Love em!!!

  2. Me encanta tu look! Te ves encantadora!

  3. hehehe hey it's all about having fun! an't imagine clothes getting moldy, thank goodness for AC here in the states. =)

  4. Those are the ones. They're the cheap ones from Target; I find that they hold up super well.

  5. Yes, AC or heating or a fan would do the trick.... :/ In the meantime, I'm just washing it over and over and over again....

  6. oh no! mold is so terrible! is there anything you can do to keep it out?
    i'd hate to have my clothes ruined by nasty mold.

  7. Yep mold. I am familiar.
    Naphtalene or as they are called "mothballs" kind of work. Kind of.
    My bags fall apart all the time due to the humidity and leather shoes grow their own tiny rainforest.

  8. Great photos

  9. Another great head scarf. Love how you tied it. So chic and effortless at the same time.
