This outfit is not great because it’s literally leftover pieces from the rejected pile that I threw together, but I’m committed to a theme, so here goes why they didn’t make the cut:
– The chambray shirt: I have two chambray shirts, and I’ve been meaning to keep this one for the fall because it’s a bit thicker, but then again it’s a bit too baggy for layering under sweaters, so no go.
– The skirt: it’s a hand-me-down from my mom. The colors are perfect for fall, but the pattern is a bit tricky to style – other than pairing it with plain black or white shirt or maybe a light-washed chambray like this, I have no idea what else I could wear it with.
– The sneakers: I had considered adding sneakers to the roster, but these are just too old, and maybe only suitable for running errands.
Now please excuse me. Fall TV season is here and I need to catch up on my shows (Sleepy Hollow first, and Gotham looks interesting too, even though I’m not a big fan of Batman or prequels in general.)

My legs are like a Shetland pony’s. I’m not petite by any means, but back in the US, occasionally I had to shop in the petite section because normal-sized pants are way too long for me, and even here in Vietnam, where I’m considered pretty tall, I still have to get my pants hemmed. Yet for some reason, recently I’ve constantly been drawn to the midi skirt + flats look (this outfit is a copy of this pin.) Yeah, the skirt hits me at a really unflattering spot, and I really can’t pull it off without the benefit of heels. I don’t care though. It’s comfy, and that’s all that matters.
