Once a week the weather is nice enough for bare legs. Today was my lucky day so I used it to have another go at the Looking Lucky Fashion Challenge floral trend look. I liked my former floral – liked the muted colours and the unique sweatshirt but I have been itching to do something *totally* unique and wear stripes and florals and midi length all at the same time:
Striped top $2.45, vintage floral skirt $3.50
Belt $3.50, shoes $5.60
All from VV Boutique
People worry about wearing horizontal stripes.
I say, it confuses your visual perception* and can actually camouflage problem
*Linking occupational therapy to fashion since 2012.
**If this is not true, don’t tell me. Let me live in happy ignorance.
As for the skirt, the mix of colours was irresistible! This skirt is actually a vintage petite, likely meaning some short old lady wore it as a mid-calf “long” skirt in the late 80s, but it works just fine on me as a midi-length just below the knee. AND it has pockets to hold my old lady tissues and hipster mom smart phone.
I’m not going to lie.
Despite the forgiving length, there’s a 45% chance I accidentally flashed the preschool roster mom today during Duck Duck Goose.
Hazards of the job.
Somehow this floral look felt a little more like my style – maybe it was the brighter colours or the stripey awesomeness. In any case, it made my Monday a little less Monday-ish and that works for me!
See you again soon floral skirt with pockets!
