If you’re a regular at 5D5W, then you probably recognize this outfit as a recycled look from several weeks’ worth of Wardrobe Wednesdays ago. But it’s new to SHOBB (man, I’m lovin’ me some abbreviations!), and I’m not just reposting it because I spent my entire weekend wearing exercise clothes instead of cute ones to show you guys.

I happen to love this outfit because it manages to combine all things me (fashion-wise): color, pattern, texture, sparkle, accessories, and detail. I realize that makes me sound like a contestant for Miss Texas (or best-dressed at the Bingo Parlor), but it makes me happy (the outfit; Marge always edges me out for Bingo best-dressed).  

An injection of giddiness from something as simple as teal ruffles, a sparkly top, an orange belt, and leopard print flats?

I’ll take it.
