A Sock Hop Beneath My BedPosted: April 16, 2012
I’m joining the lovely Mara of Eccentric Owl in the 30 Days of Dresses challenge. I don’t have 30 dresses, but I’m going to try and see how many I can wear consecutively before I come running back to pants. Even though I’m better at wearing more dresses and skirts now, to me they’re never going to be as comfy as pants. What about you? Are you more of a dress/skirt girl or a pants/jeans girl?
I almost wore my oxfords and ankle socks with this outfit, because it would complete that “sock hop” look – full skirt, cardigan, saddle shoes. But a knee-length dress and ankle socks is not a good combination for my short legs, and I should also try to stop making every outfit into a themed costume. So I went with heels instead.
Dress: Anne Klein (thrifted), Cardigan: thrifted
Shoes: Payless, Brooch: vintage

And I haven’t forgotten – it’s my turn to pick the Style Imitating Art inspiration again! Since Jess went with an orange color scheme last time, I thought I’d go on the complementary end of the spectrum and picked Homage to the Square: Blue, White, Grey by Josef Albers:
Have fun, and remember to send me your outfit pictures by Sunday evening!
