Wear it anyway


Sometimes, I'll stare at my closet, feeling underwhelmed. After taking a big sigh, I'll throw together an outfit, do some poses in front of a full-length mirror to see how it looks, and, if I like it, immediately add it to my list of outfit ideas. This outfit I put together over the weekend in exactly the way described above, and I wore it on Monday. That's a pretty fast turn around time; most of my outfits sit on the list until the weather cooperates, season comes around, or until I'm "feeling it" or whatever. Some are deleted before they are even worn.

This outfit is interesting, to say the least. It's so random and such a mish-mash of pieces. At first, I wasn't sure about it. Boxy shirt + loose A-line skirt = too much of a rectangular figure? Maybe, but I decided to wear it anyway. It's part experimental and part exactly what I wanted to be at that moment: a rectangle with two arms, two legs, and a head. Also, I wanted to feature this top again. I've worn it a few times since I first featured it on here because it's so comfortable and unique. The only downside is the choice of shoes; I didn't really know what looked best, but I decided to take my fisherman sandals out for a final spin before putting them away for the cooler months.
