So remember that little ol' challenge I did with a bazillion other bloggers? This is the outfit I wore on day 31. In August. Yes, it is old, but I really liked it and never posted it. Plus I got home at 8:30 last night, so outfit pictures were out of the question. And this outfit is reminds me pleasantly of summer. Fall decided to hit suddenly this weekend, and as much as I'm looking forward to scarves and boots, I'm missing the sun. See how nice and bright it used to be in my apartment at 5:40 p.m.? Now the lights are all on.
Ann Taylor Loft top - 2005 - $20? (similar)
Vintage belt - 2010 - $12 (similar)
Target skirt - 2007 - $6 (similar)
Nine West shoes - 2009 - $25 (similar)
I loved the proportions and balance of this outfit--the high neck of the blouse balances out the bare arms and the longer skirt, the open toes. This was truly one of those thrown together in panic outfits, but was easily one of my faves.
I'm not quite sure of the wide belt gives me a waist or makes me look straighter. I wonder if I should have worn it higher? It certainly doesn't look bad where it it, but I wonder if moving the belt would improve the look (there is always room for improvement).
I'm still on a bit of a skirt kick, but thinking I'm going to need tights with them soon (it was only 70 degrees today--yes I am a wuss). Still haven't figured out a good solution for outfit photos in the winter yet, which explains the posting of old outfits. Any ideas?
What do you miss most about summer (fashion-related or otherwise)?
