Happy Independence Day, Vietnam!Posted: September 2, 2011
I thought about wearing red and yellow (our flag colors) to celebrate Vietnam’s Independence Day, but then decided not to because 1) our flag colors aren’t really as iconic as red, white and blue; 2) all of my red shirts are in the laundry; and 3) I wanted to remix this pencil skirt.
As a final attempt to dress down this skirt, I picked the most casual graphic T-shirt I have (the only ones more casual are the ones I wear to bed.) The hat, worn for today’s prompt, “Adorn Your Head“, also helped. In the end, it’s been an interesting experiment dressing down this pencil skirt, but I’ve come to the conclusion that a gray pencil skirt looks best in its natural environment: the office.
