Button-front, vest, skirt, and heels: Thrifted — Tights: The Sock Shop — Ring: Gift — Earrings: Hand-me-down
Wearing this outfit without a slip between skirt and tights was a mistake; I looked fine standing still, but anytime I moved I looked like I was squirrel-smuggling, as Sally would say.
Ah, well. Live and learn! I’m in the market for a few slips with lacy bottoms, because slip length is difficult to match with skirt length sometimes, and if the slip’s gonna poke out, it might as well look intentional, right?
This is why I tend to prefer summer to winter–beyond the obvious I-hate-being-cold aspect, winter involves layering more articles of clothing, which means more opportunities for said articles of clothing to fight with each other (texture-wise, color-wise, length-wise). Summer may be broiling, but at least I can throw on a sundress and be good to go!
I shouldn’t really complain, though. Today was the first morning of icy windshields for me, while I know some of y’all have been getting snow since roughly Halloween. To those of you who go out in extreme weather every day, this California girl salutes you!
