To The SeaPosted: June 16, 2014
I had a different outfit in mind for this week’s SIA using the same shirt and shoes but with this skirt, since the inspiration, a serigraph by Richard Schallert, has shades of sea green, yellow, and brown. When I put it together, however, I realized the skirt is way too short for my current style, and promptly into my “donation” pile it went. I’m going to have to find a mustard skirt to replace it, but it’s going to be a midi one this time. Honestly I have been regretting my decision to cut a few of my mom’s hand-me-down skirts short, because I find midi skirts work better for my style now. Ah well.
Anyway, the proportion in this outfit is kinda off (maybe it’d work if I didn’t tuck the shirt in, but I wanted to show off the belt for the touch of yellow in the painting), but I’m having a boyfriend jeans + flat shoes moment right now so I’m wearing it anyway.
