outfit: cardigan, belt, tights and t-shirt -- gap; skirt -- f21; bow -- etsy; shoes -- aldo; bag -- mbmj
I wasn't planning on taking pictures of this outfit, but Robert called me for a spontaneous get-together and I took advantage of having my photographer there to take photos of a weekend outfit. I'll have to think of a complicated way to style it up later...just kidding--I am always simple and casual. Just the way I like it. I would've liked to have worn a white shirt with this outfit, but it's nearing laundry day, so all I have are odd-colored/printed bras left. Being totally serious: Sometimes my bra decides my color combination for the day. A lot of you comment on my knack for mixing colors, but some of the credit probably goes to my odd-colored bras.
I bought this skirt on Friday night when my best friend and I went to a F21 that's as big as most department stores. We usually spend hours in there and annoy the fitting room employees with our multiple trips, but then of course, we also usually spend quite a bit of money there too. The skirt came with a black woven belt, but I knew I wanted to wear it with a red belt because I feel incomplete without a pop of color. I picked up this belt from the Gap outlet with my parents on Saturday. Last but certainly not least, these loafers...Aren't they lovely? My dad used to wear shoes like these when I was a kid. Robert thought I was ridiculous for wanting them and made remarks about his mom having those shoes, but in the end, he warmed up to them. Not that it matters if he likes them or not, I'm hopelessly in love--even if they are a bit tight. I hate how Aldo doesn't carry half sizes because my feet are weirdly sized/always in between sizes, but they should stretch out to be comfortable soon enough. I also walked away with another pair of shoes from Aldo which will have to wait for another post. I'm so happy to have shoes to rotate now. As much as I love my Marais USA flats, they need some rest.
Until next post,
