Malt shop

Outfit Details:
Ella Black Scallop Edge Pinafore: Dahlia
Pink top: Forever 21 (no longer available, but similar here)
Amalgam of the Year Flat in Mint and Ivory: ModCloth
Mint ice cream brooch: sweet and lovely

I think I unintentionally channeled Kate Gabrielle of Scathingly Brilliant with this outfit.  Not only does she have this pinafore, but she designed this adorable brooch AND works in an ice cream shop!  I feel as if I should serving malted milkshakes.  All that's missing is a name tag and a pair of rollerskates.

I absolutely love these shoes.  Steven bought me a pair of more traditional-looking black and white saddle shoes from Urban Outfitters that ended up not fitting, but these were an even better substitute!  I have at least three pairs of mint-colored shoes now... maybe I should stop.  Or maybe not.

I'm seeing Legally Blonde tonight, at a theatre at which I often work.  I was in a production of the show last summer, and prior to being in it, I never really thought much of it as a piece.  True, it is a fluffy musical based on a popular movie, but I definitely wrote it off too much.  Even though I am often drawn to darker shows, musical theatre's roots are based in the fun and uplifting, and that's exactly what Legally Blonde is.  The music is really fun to sing (though I will admit that there is too much unison high belting for my taste), and though you're not going to get the same emotional ride you'd get from some heavier works, that's not what this show tries to be.  It embraces the bubble gum, and you do leave the theater feeling happier and bouncier; the show does exactly what it it's supposed to do.

Have a great Thursday!

  8. Goodness, you look adorable. Pink and black look so sweet and classy together. And then you added the mint! And the ice cream pin! This is such a sweet look. The scallops on the pinafore are my favorite.
