NeglectedPosted: February 27, 2014
For some reason, I’ve been really neglecting my skirts this winter (you can just tell by how wrinkled this skirt is.) Since January, I’ve only had four skirt outfits. I guess I just got bored with skirts. They’re more difficult to style than dresses, especially in the winter – you have to figure out what top to go with it, what tights, what kind of shoes, belt or no belt… I spent nearly half an hour trying on different tights and sweaters before settling with these, but I wasn’t happy with the result. The tights are completely lazy, and the neckline of this sweater, I realize, does not look good on a broad-shouldered person like me. I need something more boat-necked than this. Oh well. The truth is that I just wanted to show off my new heeled oxfords. I know, I know, buying new things is not the best way to break out of a style rut, but when I saw these, I couldn’t pass them up. Besides, they’re real leather, which means they’re super soft and comfy, so expect to see them a lot more on the blog in the foreseeable future.
