Wear Your Bright Clothes

Last week I mentioned that I don’t wear skirts and dresses as frequently anymore now that it’s warming up, and here I am, with two outfits featuring skirts this week so far. In my defense, it’s been raining a lot, so it was cool enough. Anyway, there’s not much to say about this outfit – it’s very typically “me”, with a collared shirt, plaid skirt, and brooch. I originally wore my navy-and-brown heeled oxfords, but they’re a bit heavy for the outfit (though they match the skirt quite well), so I switched to these sandals. They’re quite old (>7 years old!), but they’re still going strong.

P/S: The title is from “In the Summertime” by Mungo Jerry. Yes, I know the exact lyrics is “When the winter’s here […], wear your bright clothes”, but it fits.


Turtles All The Way Down

How cute is this turtle brooch? I already have one, but now they’re a family! And of course, me being me, I had to build an outfit around this brooch. The blue and green plaid of the skirt reminds me of the abalone of the turtles’ shells, the navy top is like an ocean for the turtles to sail across, and the shoes are… because… there is some brown in the skirt? Come on, you’re not expecting me to have an entirely ocean/turtle-themed outfit, are you? I love theme dressing, but I’m not that dedicated!
