It looks like fall in these pictures. I’m very sorry about that, I know you don’t want to think about fall. Regardless, it was cold, I was tired, and this is something I’ve worn before, an outfit repeat - I like the way the two patterns compliment each other. Pleats are not necessarily the most flattering look for my lower half, but hiking it up to my waist and belting it helps eliminate some of the weight a bunch of pleats can add. The red tights make me feel a little more spring-like (in comparison to standard black), but lezbehonest, how sick are you of tights? Tights can take a hike as far as I’m concerned. I would say that to their face though, so whatever.
These are some very Lady (scuffed) work ankle boots, and my very Lady black doctor bag, too. Both items show I am serious and business-like (about what we are eating for lunch).
I love this layered necklace trend because it makes piling on the jewels socially acceptable, and obviously I am down with that.
This week I’m gonna do some work outfits - excited yet? Judging from the reaction my neon hair tips received in the fall, it doesn’t surprise me that I get uncomfortable at the thought of going Full Hipster at the office. These people, they just don’t get my art, man (working title of my in-progress novel). I have to find sneaky ways to work in the things all the kidz are wearin. The added volume on both the skirt and the shirt make it more unflattering and therefore more cool. Add in two necklaces and some polka dots, but still appear to be a (semi) normal person at work, due to the overall ‘professional’ format - appropriately long skirt, conservative heels, fancy lady purse, all that jazz. This way you won’t look like a TOTAL CORPORATE SQUARE at all of the cool after-work activities you do, like thinking about exercising, or cooking turkey meatballs - that’s what I’m doing, anyway. Wanna hang out??
Full post up later today!
