When I buy something, I want to wear it immediately. So today, I wore the new/old Wrangler denim shirt I picked up yesterday at MOSS:
wearing: James Perse fleece skirt | Gap tank top | Vintage Wrangler denim shirt | Madewell necklace | 3.1 by Philip Lim bag | Kurt Geiger Platforms
It’s such an awesome shirt, with lots of great details. I intend to wear it tied around my waist with full skirts mostly, but today I felt like wearing it open over my old James Perse slim fleece skirt and a Gap tank top.
Clearly, I’m suffering in the photography department, but I’m doing my best to work-with-what-I’ve-got right now, which is an old point & shoot with tripod. I vowed not to take pictures inside in front of my kitchen door anymore, but unfortunately, that means less than perfect lighting outside. And most of the time I don’t have anyone else who can take my pictures…so this is it…for now anyway. If I’m under the false illusion that you guys LIKE my outfit posts, please let me know 😉 I like doing them, because as far as I know, there aren’t very many of us “average-sized” bloggers posting outfit pictures and I like to give an idea of how I work with things in my wardrobe.
And speaking of working with things, I loved Sally’s post today: “Can’t Wear That” where she addresses some of her most infuriating style “guidelines” – like short girls can’t wear maxi skirts. I love her reaction to the “rules” (read them!) and totally agree. I’m short (5’3″) and love to wear maxi skirts, maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think I get “lost” in them, but honestly, I’ve never even thought about it. I just wear what I want, most of the time 😉 I do get comments frequently though, when I post a maxi dress or skirt, that “oh, I’m short, I can’t wear that” to which I want to reply, “have you tried”?
So, fellow short girls, do you wear long skirts/dresses?
