Monday, Monday...but today was a pretty good day, in spite of it being Monday.
I am raring to go full-on Spring, but the weather is not cooperating! I demand Spring - now!
I know what looks good on me: the hourglass silhouette. It suits my body type (boobs, little waist, hips). However, I get bored with the same looks over and over - I need change! Stimulation! Excitement!
I could have easily done this full midi-length skirt with a fitted jacket and a belted waist. I could have done this cropped top with a slim pencil skirt. But I didn't. I am an experimenter!
here on the weekend. The boots were last worn here in early January with plaid taffeta. I have a turquoise cami layered under the top, and patterned knee-highs on top of plain hose.
I really love this Forever 21 top - and although I will never shop in a F21, I am happy to find a good quality piece second-hand. I really like the loopy pattern of it, although the "laces" that it's made of are a little cold on the skin.
I loved the swooshiness and the sueded feel of the silk/cotton skirt - it reminds me of those sand-washed silk shirts that we all wore back in the late 80s/early 90s.
So, my opinion of the test-drive of this look? Liking all the elements, but not how they go together. I did enjoy wearing this outfit, and I don't regret trying something out of my wheelhouse. I'll play with these again in a week or so and do more of my classic shape.

I was freezing in my outfit all day. Guess why?
