Eep I've been purposely staying away from blogging for the past few days. It's party because the weather has switched back to rain, and I don't feel up to doing something creative with layering at the moment. Can't summer just come already? I've mostly been wearing skinnies, sweaters and my leather jacket. Nothing worth posting really. But since I didn't have work today and spent most of the day alone inside, I decided to put together a few outfits with the hope that I could wear them sometime soon.
Wearing an Urban Behaviour tank and skirt, Aldo shoes, vintage Ports blazer.
I used an Urban Behaviour tank that I picked up on sale last week as a base to all of the outfits. I quite like wearing it backwards, it's my version of underwear as outerwear, except it's still technically layered underneath. I wonder if I'll get this crazy lace tan on my chest this summer... Now there's a trend to start!
Same as above with a thrifted skirt.
I started styling the top with a few longer skirts, because I realized that sometimes I go far too short and I don't always like that kind of attention (refer to this post with a few creepo encounters). I've worn this blue skirt to a job interview before. I love how the pleats are so exact and precise. This outfit is a bit of a mix between racy and demure. Maybe it's slightly more practical to wear out during the daytime.
The above skirt is also another thrifted find. I should really wear it more often but it's slightly too wide. I keep meaning to have it taken in... or just do it myself. But I'm a lazy, lazy blogger. The leather jacket is also a thrifted find (actually it's my mothers hah). What sort of jacket does one wear with a longer, fuller skirt? This is the best fit that I've come across so far with jackets from my closet.
Again, the above skirt is second hand. I love how nothing matches in this outfit. Cotton and black lace? Purple suede and burnt ourange corduroy? I always purposely mismatch when I'm wearing this skirt because I can't really think of anything that goes with it perfectly.
And lastly, another thifted skirt and blazer. It's the first time I've attempted polka dots in a while! For some reason I've never much taken to the pattern, but I love every other print imaginable. It works to my liking here though.
I hope you've enjoyed my little experiment! I threw in some 90s-supermodel-stong-arm-flexing poses in the mix. Obviously mine still need a little work. I've resumed fencing practice again for the summer (I don't think I've ever mentioned that I fence on the blog), and my shoulders and hands are in desperate need of a bit more strength. It's sad when your hand cramps up after only two minutes into a bout...
