All remixed except skirt
Skirt: Ann Taylor
Mules: Off Broadway
So today's outfit was inspired by these two looks. I really liked their (almost) all white outfits, and decided to do my own little twist on this summery look.
My first twist was getting rid of pants. I mean, I own a pair of white pants, but they don't fit terribly well, and they're destined for my give away pile. Besides, I don't really like pants; I'm definitely a skirt girl.
I don't really own a white skirt, either, but this one is close. The color is so light that it looks white in the right light and from the right distance.
It's also got these cute, sailor-type buttons on the front, and who can resist that? Even if it does draw attention to your belly... Anyway, I got this skirt at the Ann Taylor outlet at least three years ago, and this is only the third time I've worn it. Isn't that pathetic?
I was originally going to wear a white tee - a fancy tee to be exact - but as I was looking for it, I saw this blouse and thought that it might work better, especially with that sweet little pleated detail at the neckline - it felt vaguely nautical to me, and that seemed to work with the skirt.
I tried on some silver peep toes with this, but then went with these nude mules because they felt more office appropriate. I have a love/hate relationship with mules because they so often look like house shoes to me and that's not a look I'm going for - though I love the ease of slipping them on. When you have a pointy toe, though, it's easier to distance yourself from the fuzzy slipper look.
And now, another awkward hands pose:
P.S. I just discovered today that mules were associated with PROSTITUTES in the early 20th Century?! Whaaaaaa?!
