...that and this picture of the always-gorgeous-Liz from Late Afternoon...
So, yeah, Mom inspired me to tie my shirt (which is a fun way to retro-ify your outfit) and Liz inspired me to bare some skin as well as provided the perfect hair accessory to complete the outfit. I love that, separately, the pieces feel so fancy (a silk blouse and pleated skirt) but because of the styling, it's got a casual-chic twist! And, yeah, you read it right: Prada. Just one of my lucky finds from working at a consignment store!
This is probably one of my more "experimental outfits" and I was really pleased with it! Oh, FYI - I did button the shirt for work. Since I work in "clothing" I could get away with this outfit just as it is...but, I don't know, modesty took over and I buttoned all the buttons. It did, however, still leave a peek of skin showing where my skirt and shirt didn't quite meet. So I bared a little midriff, after all!
On to business: I have fallen behind on the 21 Day Challenge and while I was planning on linking this to "new hair-do" it's not technically new (I tried it here with poor picture quality previously). I will instead link this to "copycat" since I practically copied Liz's look and, not to mention, I have an idea for a new hair-do that is, actually, new for me...so stay tuned!
How do you feel about baring a little skin? Is it a trend you would try?
