Spring seems to be in the air (i.e. nearly 100% humidity and mold everywhere. I hate it); that’s why I’m bringing out this skirt. I still can’t think of what to pair with it other than white and/or blue, and I find the light colors inappropriate for colder days (it’s just my own arbitrary rule, I prefer wearing dark colors in winter to “warm up”, and light colors in summer to “cool down”), which is why I only tend to wear it around spring. Plus, this bobble cardigan, with its floral embroideries, is super spring-appropriate, so of course I had to pair them together.
Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Rus Khasanov’s “Sweet Dreams” video. I mostly took inspiration from the video as a whole, though the blue-and-pink color scheme is a major part of said inspiration. I also thought that the pattern and bobbles on my sweater are a good nod to the drops of paint and bubbles in the video, and the shine of the skirt can reflect the glitter without being too literal about it. Overall, I’m really happy with the outfit. Check back on Wednesday to see how everybody else did, and don’t forget, if you’re interested in becoming in SIA host, to email me and/or Terri before January 21st!
Our holiday break for the Lunar New Year wasn’t supposed to start until next week, but we just had a recent outbreak of COVID cases and everything is in lockdown mode again, so we got off a week early. Fingers crossed that the break won’t get extended into nearly 3 months like it did last time!
Anyway, that means that for the next month or so, I’ll be posting backlogged outfits. First up is this outfit I wore to our school’s end-of-semester party. This dress is quickly becoming my go-to “party dress”, because it can be easily accessorized. For this, I kept things simple with heels in a complementary color and this vintage brooch – it’s my favorite because it mimics the look of a corsage. I suspect it was handmade too, which makes it all the more special!
My sister convinced me to buy these heels at an end-of-summer sale. I tend to stay away from such conventionally feminine things, especially when it comes to shoes, and these are the most conventionally feminine shoes ever – the pink color, the heels, the Mary Jane straps. If I do wear heels, they’re usually more basic than that. But I agreed with my sister that I need to branch out a bit, and besides, these heels are low enough that they’re pretty comfortable to wear. I’m looking forward to cooler weather so I can pair them with some of my more masculine pieces like boyfriend jeans and blazers – because I’m all about keeping the balance between feminine and masculine in my style.
