I really liked this outfit; I've been having a thing for pale neutrals recently. Sadly my wardrobe is dominated by black&white and strong reds/dark blues.
I really liked the shape of this when I saw it in the mirror, but it doesn't look that nice photographed for some reason. I think it might be the shape of the vest -- it's quite rectangular, isn't it? I wore this with my black cardigan over it; maybe that made it look better (or maybe not).
It's actually quite good to take photos of your outfit, if you can be bothered. It allows you to see it as other people will, and it's surprising how different it looks from how it appears in the mirror sometimes.
I pulled this top out of the closet with the idea of wearing it under my white dress (see below) -- as an experiment, you know -- put the top on, then realised it pretty much worked as a dress. As a short dress, but hey, I was planning to spend most of the day at home trying to work and getting distracted by things on the Internet, so why not?
I get such a kick out of finding new ways to wear old things .... That said, later that day I went to Sainsbury's to pick up some groceries, tripped over a pavement and scraped both my knees. So serve me right for trying to do without trousers. "Gondor has no pants ... Gondor needs no pants!" my foot.
I bought this T-shirt to wear as a dress but when I tried it my courage failed and I lamely covered up with the long black cardigan featured in the previous outfit. But it is a very nice T-shirt!
I initially wore it as a normal sort of T-shirt, tucking it under the skirt, but that somehow did not look as nice as wearing it over the skirt did. So I went for the slightly weirder look.
The shoes in this picture are a tiny lie; I wore flats really, and only put the heels on for the photograph. But I was wearing those heels in my soul.
What I do have is one and half skeins of Rowan Milk Cotton in pale green sitting under my bed, though. Hmm!
