I am going to spare you today with only a few photos of this gettup. Yup, today was a mistake. Want to hear my excuses? Um, it was dreary and rainy? I was tired? I'm getting over a cold--brain not functioning? All of the above?
I THOUGHT that these neutrals would go together--except they aren't really neutrals. The skirt has a lot of purple in it, and the jacket is really tan. Mistakenly, I thought these tights were more of a neutral denim color. I was experimenting with this skirt--its really a great knit, and great shape (doesn't stick to stockings) but it has started to pill. All of it just does NOT tell a good story. Too much incongruity--if you know what I mean.
To make matters worse? The button on the jacket was hanging precariously by a thread...
To remix this? I would definitely get rid of the stockings, use something in the brown family, and do normal boots--brown. I haven't given up on the skirt yet.
Ever have one of those days?
