Weekly Capsule 05.2: Butterflied

The proportions of this outfit are really off, but I wanted to get this turtleneck sweater a bit more wear, since it’s also one of the nicer pieces in my closet that doesn’t get worn too often because there are only so many ways I can style it. Layering a blazer on top of it seems like a good idea, it’s just that this blazer is way too short. I have a really long torso, and stumpy legs, so it’s tricky to find a cut of blazer that fits me well.

Now, on a more random note, may I present this butterfly that thought my boot was a landing pad? It rested there long enough for me to hop over to my tripod, get my camera, and take this photo, and didn’t stumble away until I poked at it. It was like it was drunk. Or perhaps high on some hallucinogenic flower in our garden.

    such a pretty and classic look!

  2. I love how classic and chic this look is – looks great!

  3. I would say the proportions actually work well with this look — the shorter blazer helps your legs look longer and the contrast of the light sweater and jacket break up your longer torso. Love the ornate brooch!
