In theory, this outfit should have worked.
Menswear, floral skirt, statement necklace. Things I love.
I’m not sure what happened, but this skirt, that I’ve only worn one other time, is now ill-fitting. I was uncomfortable in it all day. I think the shirt was just too bulky to be tucked in because I spent all day re-tucking. And these shoes are horrible for my feet. I first wore them to a wedding a couple weeks ago and regretted it big time. So, of course, it was an obvious next step to wear them to teach in all day.
These things were all in my head as I wore this outfit and the pictures just confirmed my sneaking suspicion: this will not be worn again.
Taking pictures of your outfits is helpful. What I see in the mirror and what shows up on film (okay, not actual film) are sometimes two different things. This whole dressing-myself-well is still a work-in-progress. And I’m always going to be a student.
