All my full-length pictures today turned out like crap; I don't know why.
Today was a cold, rainy Monday in Philly, and I wasn't feeling that great, so comfort was key.
I realize just how much black I wear - I've got to do something about that. This outfit isn't all that exciting, but there are a couple details that I think make this a bit interesting.
First, the subtle pattern-mixing:
I like the detail of the houndstooth skirt with the texture of the tights - are they micro-fishnets? I don't know.
Second: the high waist on the skirt:
I love high waist lines. I don't know if they're the most flattering on me, but I think they're fun.
These earrings are beautiful - lovely and delicate - and were a gift from B. He gave them to me on our way to Pittsburgh for a wedding, and I thought they were perfect for today.
Finally, the only thing that makes me feel okay about rainy days:
Zebra print umbrella: Target
