Move along! Move along! Nothing to see here!
These are not the ‘droids you are looking for…
After all, there’s nothing new or innovative about today’s outfit. In fact, I think this is the most Spring Break-y of all my looks this week. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I’m probably going to live in some iteration of this skinnies/button up combo come summer break too.
The only vaguely fashionista thing I did here was trying that reverse layer thing with a short-sleeved thing over a long-sleeved thing, and I think that’s one of those so-last-season things. Of course, I did some stylish pattern mixing, but the blues of both top and bottom are so close that it almost doesn’t count.
I was gonna try the cropped top look but I was too chicken to take scissors to the black tee. I failed cutting in kindergarten, you see, and I was afraid of ruining a perfectly good top. If I had to do this outfit over, though, I think I’d use either a shorter tee or a closer-fitting one. This just looks a wee bit sloppy for my sensibilities.
Ah, well. At least I’ve covered some 40s trends. Did you know that plaid and gingham were really big in that decade? And it’s a testament to the awesomeness of these two prints that they’re still mainstays in the fashion world today. Some things are just meant to be classics, n’est-ce pas?
P.S. Lest anyone forget – this week is T3 and I hope to see some interesting offerings, both in the fashion and the literary sense.
