Wool skirt? Thrifted
Turtleneck? Joe Fresh
Necklace? Banana Republic
Shoes? ID Browns
This skirt is one of those pieces that can cause you to fret in the confines of your own home but once you wear it out, you better commit 100% to the whole look. It's the same attitude that I have when I wear sequins to pump gas... I know some people stare at me, maybe even laughing but I am not going to giving anyone the satisfaction of looking unsure, even for a moment. What's wrong with the last scenario? I pump my own gas...
I am aware that huge patch pockets on the hips are not the most flattering... I could easily have stitch ripped them off and it would have been a neat midi length skirt, but the pockets were a good challenge. I think that the waist definition and adding some supa high heels keeps the skirt from over whelming me. I admit that I had a rush of doubt as we were about to go out, thinking I should perhaps take the pockets off after all. But Matt pointed out that the pockets were handy for, like, carrying stuff around... and that's when we decided to see if Kyle the cat would fit in a pocket... he didn't but three tubes of lipgloss did.
I never really noticed before but it seems Hamilton has, in addition to historic beauty and great thrifting, many buildings painted in gaudy shades. It is my new goal in life to get pictures in front of as many coloured buildings as possible until I have a rainbow of photos of myself that I can print off and hang in our bathroom... just to be awkward like that. In deep moments of contemplation I wonder when this style blogging thing will run its course in my life, and in lighter moments I know I cannot stop until this colour wheel is complete.
