*Mea Culpa - My life has been particularly challenging the past 10 days or so. Silver Boots just didn't fit into the "sad me" equation...This post was prepped last week, but I never made it to the publish button. I do have a bit to show for my time of -no internet. Stay tuned ;)
As cold as it was when the evening crept in, the rain was held at bay by an unknown force, taunting my desire for a reason to use my red umbrella.....so it became a photographic pon.
This was my awkward outfit Monday. Do you ever feel just "off " from the minute you open your eyes in the morning? I had predicted that this particular Monday was going to happen, but I just didn't want to concede. It happens at least once a month. Truly hoping that a cute skirt and top combo would brighten my mood and confidence, I grabbed this cute sailor style, high waisted number... Well, how did that work out for me? Not so awesome:
The skirt was too short for work. I was pulling it down the ENTIRE day and I didn't notice this little hemline shananigan until I had one foot out the door (literally) that morning. And then on my drive to work, I looked down (while sitting in my typical traffic-y drive) that I was going to have to stand up/sit up straight and suck it in because the huge creases were already starting. (This appears to be a special little characteristic of this skirt.) What was I thinking? And what was the designer of this skirt thinking? Use some rayon or polyester as the main fabric, not cotton - Wrinkle/Crease City! ~A place I always involuntarily end up.
I DO really like this skirt, just not at work and not when I am feeling like a bloated balloon. The last one applies to all snug outfits. :) I think its gonna be adorable without the tights and with a black tank or tshirt. Heck, maybe I'll throw on a sailor hat (but I must find one first!)
One beacon in my Monday outfit darkness - At least my wedges were cute!
