Shooties and Skirt

I was dying to try the shooties with a skirt--and SUCCESS (I think!) Went out to lunch, and actually saw a few other versions: some black shooties with shorts--shooties with leggings--all looked cute! I'm going to be wearing these as much as possible now--I really don't know how much longer I'll be able to wear them!
Question of the Day: Do bra straps showing bother you? There has been the its OK to show the bra strap trend; the clear bra strap trend, the sport bra strap trend. (this is the sport bra strap btw) But still....Love to hear what YOU think!
Skirt= Old Navy
Shooties= Anthropologie
Top= ???


  1. That is SO cute on you! I am insanely envious.

    As for bra straps.... you must have just read the same blog post I did! I said it there, I'll say it here: I don't think it's the end of the world if a black, or dark-colored, relatively pretty bra strap OCCASIONALLY peeks out of a dark shirt.

    But I do use a variety of techniques to hide ugly bra straps. Nothing worse than a nude/beige bra strap showing.... in my opinion.

  2. I don't like seeing bra straps, probably a throw back to my youth (ha!) when it was trashy to have your bra straps showing. Actually in this photo I thought you had a tank on. I do like how the straps break up the shoulder line.

  3. Thanks, ladies! The jury is out on bra straps for me. I don't like them showing if they look real mechanical; if you know what I mean. If they look like another top, or a camisole--I think its better. And you are right Anne, its not the end of the world! lol! It is scarey tho, I have this vision of an old lady with her bra straps hanging out AND her slip straps---ew

  4. Looks great!
    I thought the clear strap idea was genius!

  5. I teach and though my students aren't bothered by a slipping strap, I'm really self-conscious about their "gaze." Try to avoid it in my professional life.

  6. Lisa, did you? I think it looks like some type of plastic scar or some bondage thing...the idea was good but didn't seem to work as well in the real world.

    Terri~Yes, you sort of know something is hanging out. Remember when we would be sooo embarassed by our slip showing?? "Snowing down south" lol
