The Key to the Tardis | Outfit

I have been trying not to repeat any items in my outfits this month, but I finally broke down to re-wear my Tardis skirt (see the first styling here) and this key blouse (styled just a few days ago here) because my husband wore his Dalek bow tie to church and I had to wear Doctor Who. HAD to. Plus, I am getting to the things in my closet that this all dress/skirt and blog daily experiment has made me realize: I don’t like, I can’t fit, or I just don’t reach for that often.

I’m inspired to make a few more cute skirts from the stockpile of fabric I have, and to go find more blouses to wear now that I have these three new ones that I LOVE.

And it’s also made me realize how much blue I wear, unintentionally. Yellow and red are my favorite colors, closely followed by orange, green, and pink, and I never would have claimed to wear a lot of blue… yet here it is the 24th and so far 12 of my 18 outfits have had blue in them.

I really like that this blouse compliments the skirt and also is a little nod to the key to the TARDIS. Anything that ties into my nerdy garb is an instant yes with me!

Are there colors you find yourself wearing over and over again? Is it your favorite color, or just one you seem to have a lot of in your closet?

Happy Sunday!

    Absolutely perfect pattern mixing! You do look fab in blue. Green is my favourite colour, but I have relatively little of it in my closet – it seems to be the hardest colour for me to find garments in shades that I like. I wear loads of colour, but the colour I probably have most of is black! (Which I do love to wear!)

    If any skirt is worth repeating it’s a tardis skirt, and how could you not want to put these pieces together?

    All of my favorite colors are weirdly specific and complicated colors; chartreuse, mauve, taupe, blush, mustard, and greyed jade. My eye is really drawn to in-between colors for some reason. I’ve recently discovered a love for candy apple red because it seems to go well with everything, but blue stumps me. Blue is always just so straightforward blue. I’m sure a connoisseur of blue could argue a pretty good case for all its varying shades, but to my eye it’s just blue.

    So I did see this on your Facebook but when I looked quick here, I didn’t know what was on your skirt (I am not a Dr. Who fan) but even still, loved the mixed patterns. Now that I see what is on your skirt, I still love it (even though I don’t really know for sure what a Tardis is – is it a payphone?) and I love the blues!!

      The TARDIS is a Time And Relative Dimension In Space ship that was supposed to disguise itself according to its setting, but got stuck as a Police Box — which Britain used to have so you could call the cops. 😀 And, you could toss criminals inside and lock ’em in until the cops got there.

    I think you look fabulous in blue, especially when it’s Dr. Who themed! I’ve never seen the show personally but I low how there is a cult following for it, just like Supernatural. I LOVED that show!
    I can totally relate to not having more items of your favorite color in your closet- pink, olive green, and tan are my favorite colors, yet I own probably one of each. I quickly learned that they are not my best color choices for my fair skin. My closet mainly consists of blacks, browns, blues, and LOTS of patterns! Totally opposite, right?? ;D

    I love blue. I love DW. I love this outfit!!!
    I think you look just perfect in that! I love the mixed patterns, and I love the dalek head scarf. So much Doctor Who in one outfit! Well done!
    Much love,
