Since the skirt is such a light colour, I wanted to create contrast by keeping the rest of the colours dark. My sister "hand-me-upped" this navy t-shirt with ribbon tuxedo detailing. Perfect!
I paired it with my forest green cardigan because they not only have have similar hues, but they also have similar buttons :D The navy belt carried on the navy from the beret and t-shirt.
To keep warm in my breezy skirt, I wore my faux-fur coat. It's so warm! I actually bought it when I was in middle school (from the Salvation Army) for a Cruela DeVil costume! I wore my navy and forest green plaid shawl as a scarf.
I chose my vertical-striped grey stockings because they continue the "flow" of the outfit -- the ribbons on the t-shirt, the thin crocheted panels in the skirt, and the texture of the coat!
I felt like a movie-style displaced orphan princess in this outfit, hahaha. Bad description, but maybe you know what I mean?
This coat is so luxurious! It was -10C the day I wore this outfit, and I was toasty warm. My grey leather gloves helped too!
I'm glad these photos turned out well -- they were taken in the middle of the afternoon and they could have been much too overexposed, but I like the effect!
I was being silly on the monkeybars and got some funny bloopers:
Hahaha blooper shots are my favourite!
My friend Matty is visiting, so I suppose I should go be social! Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did wearing, posing, and posting about this outfit!
p.s. I'm getting a haircut tomorrow, do you think I should just get a trim and grow it out, or cut it back into a shaggy bob, or get a more angular sort of bob?
