I don't really know how to wear dressy skirts. I feel like I get it right maybe half the time. Maybe.
This skirt is lovely and swishy and silk, but it looks so stupid with a shirt tucked in. I think it might be too big in the waist? I don't know. I also don't know what color to wear with it other than black, which feels like a bit of a cop out.
So tell me, what would you pair with an ivory, yellow, and black skirt?
We gave Lu a toy camera. So, you know, I've got my own paparazzi now. Fancy.
shirt: Deletta, bought on consignment (similar here)
skirt: Jones New York (similar pattern here, similar cut here)
Wow, okay, there is a lot going on here. I wanted to wear something summery with my new embellished wedges and I feel like all I wear is dresses lately, so separates. Okay! I can do this! Problem, my tops fall into three categories: 1. Striped, 2. Not Work Appropriate, and 3. Sadness.
Guess which one I picked? Yeah, not so sure this tank top is work-appropriate but it's summer and all, so whatever. It's also beaded which makes for a lot of embellishment in one outfit, but I think it all works okay?
After I read Adrien's post, I had big plans to show her how I wear denim skirts without looking shapeless or lumpy. I love a denim skirt, I just find that you either need to wear a top made of a sturdy material (like I did here), or I wear something that floats away from the body a bit. You can't wear anything made of a thin material that is also fitted, or it's lump city. In this case I bought this t-shirt a size larger so it would be loose. The only problem?
Well, honestly, I look a little lumpy and shapeless here. Oh well. The other outfit link above is better, at least.
The first day back after a vacation is horrible, you guys. I was happy I caved and bought a black version of the Magic Dress because it meant I didn't have to really think about what to wear yesterday. Probably not work appropriate for every office, but my workplace is pretty casual in the summer:
Move over Tim Riggins. And I'm sorry Man Repeller. It turns out? My spirit animal is actually a pair of yellow ochre suede wedges.
Seriously, can you see these shoes? They make me a freaking giant and somehow go with everything I own. I may even get brave this fall and try them with opaque tights. I want to wear them All. The. Time.
Want a closer look? Indulge me. I went through a lot of eBay angst to get these for a price I could swing.
wedges: Chie Mihara Hito in "Curry" (another cute pair of yellow wedges here)
