It may not look like it from the full shots, but I’m actually wearing all the basic colors in this outfit – there are black and white from my skirt and shirt, and my shirt has red, blue, and green prints on it, and the yellow is from my shoes. Yeah, the shirt is new – I think most of my purchases this season has been “quirky button-ups”, which, when I think about it, is very much my style. It’s too bad that the Top 10 challenge is already drawing to a close, because I would’ve added this shirt to it in a heartbeat.

Well, I said I was going to try these boots with skirt, so here we are. I… like them here better than in yesterday’s outfit, but now the rest of the outfit looks kind of frumpy, no? I don’t know. I guess I’m just in a cranky mood today because it’s been raining for too long, plus it’s that time of the year again when my script reading job gets super busy and my brain hurts from reading too much. I would want to say that it’s going to be better next week, but the weather is warming up, and for us that means terrible humidity (I’m talking about the-walls-are-sweating-the-floor-is-sweating-everything-is-sweating level of humidity here), so… no. It won’t be better.
Anyway, this was my last chance to try these boots before putting them away until next winter (again: warming up next week), but I haven’t decided if they’re a keeper yet. Thoughts?

And here are my looks this week (wow, you can really see the ground getting more and more rain-soaked as the week passed):
You can tell I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel because this is the kind of clumsy outfit that I came up with toward the end of the capsule. I mean, I like the idea – striped sweater, skirt, boots, scarf – that sounds all right, doesn’t it? Except this sweatshirt doesn’t really go well with being tucked into a skirt, and for this skirt + boots combo to work, my skirt should be an A-line, not pleated, and my boots could do with a bit more of a heel too. Oh well. At least now I know what doesn’t work.
