I know this is in direct opposition to Monday’s post, but it’s that time of year when fall settles into the cobwebs of my subconscience. I start dreaming of cool fall nights, bundled up in my favorite jacket or sweater, huddled around campfires. I start wishing I had a pair of boots to go with this outfit instead of sandals. I start remembering those favorite jeans I have stashed at the back of my closet; will they fit? will I still love them?
Then I step outside to check the mail and feel the oppressive humidity seemingly stealing the breath right out of my lungs. The cobwebs have cleared and I’m back in summer (with only a few short weeks left to go!)
So I go through my closet and pull out clothes that are not summer colors, pairing them with textiles that are rarely worn in heat and humidity. I call it rebellion. You can call it whatever you want.
To dress it up a little bit, I change the shoes (and location, haha.)
Necklace: Banana Republic
Belt: Target (seen here)
Skirt: F21 (see the original, in black here)
Shoes 1: H&M
Umbrella: Totes (via Target)
I bought this skirt on clearance for $3.99. It was originally a maxi skirt. The Mr was out of town so I was watching an old movie on the tellie, In Her Shoes. At one point, Cameran Diaz is wearing this asymmetrical knit skirt that I instantly fell in love with. Unable (this is years after the movie was even released) to find one like it online, I took this cheap skirt and cut it up, hoping it would be cute. It wasn’t quite the same, but hey, it was only $3.99!
