Big Stripes and a Boar

I bought this big stripey vest thing on a whim and am not sure if I like it or not.

Pink Calico - Stripey Vest

The colours are nice, but the top is a little skimpy (not sure if that is the right word).  I feel like it should have wider shoulders - or maybe I just don't have the right body shape for this garment.  Mongs @ My Thrifty Closet has a good post on body shape this week, and it might be I have something to learn.

I had the urge to wear this chunky necklace even though it didn't really go:

Pink Calico - Chunky Necklace

A former co-worker came down for lunch the other day and then talked me into going in with her on a Buy 2 Get 2 sale as she could only find 2 items she liked.  The chunky necklace was one of the items and I wanted to try it out.

And I held the top of the vest together with a pin:

Pink Calico - Clan MacLaren pin


Here is a picture for better detail:

This is actually a pewter Scottish Clan MacLaren pin. Their rallying cry is "Boars Rock".  Nothing to do with me though, the only Scottish in my family is MacIntosh, methinks.

  1. I like the stripy thing - maybe trying other combinations will make you like it more? I like the motto "Boars Rock" - wild pigs are groovy, although I don't think that's what they meant!

  2. I think it's not skimpy at all unless you wear it without the top...haha...it's nice that you teamed the color block vest with the black top it looks classy and streamlined. Cute pin too. Thanks for the mention Narda...you are so kind!
