Another source of glee: I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS OUTFIT. It's the funnest outfit I've worn all month! And I've worn some pretty fun ones.
So, sometimes I plan outfits for a while before I actually wear them. It takes time to figure out just what will actually go together, etc etc. I've been working on this one for a few weeks now, taking different things and hanging them on the same hanger. It started with the skirt, and then I got these navy blue herringbone-pattern tights!
The toughest thing to decide for this was the shirt. Two nights ago I was flipping through my hangers, because it was really bugging me that I couldn't find a shirt to go!! I had already scoured my drawers, and nothing. Then I came across this grey Gap pearlized-snap-button shirt... perfect!
The bare bones of the outfit set, it was time to accessorize! I've been wanting to wear this double-buckle belt and it's an awkward width, but fits perfectly where this skirt sits on my waist. Since the buckles are sort of Western-looking, I decided to wear my little cowboy bolo tie! IT'S SO CUTE! Yet another piece I hadn't worn yet. He was a lucky Value Village find!
The boots were my last decision. I almost didn't wear them, worrying I was taking the "Western" theme too far. But then I realized... what's too far? No such thing! What a boring thing to think. So I went for it, and I felt awesome all day!
Today was another fun day of saying hi to strangers and compliments and such. I'm on a roll! Love love love friendliness. I also had a dentist's appointment today, and the hygenist and dentist had a big conversation about my cowboy boots while they poked me with their little hooky thing and lectured me about flossing. My dentist also asked me if I left my cowbot hat in the waiting room; I told him that if I had one, I would have! A good time was had by all.
|I'm pretending to have a cowboy hat... haha!|
Another fun part of this outfit was that it was VERY windy today, so I got to do Marilyn Monroe skirt-holding-down all day! Potentially embarrassing for some, fun times for me! This skirt actually has an under-layer, so nobody would have gotten a show anyway. In case they had, this is why boyshorts were invented! Layered under stockings, it wouldn't have mattered anyway ;)
Action shot! Wheee! I hope everyone had a good day, and I'll write tomorrow! Maybe I'll trade my cowboy hat for a pirate one...
