So here I am, already breaking the rules.
But Caitlin’s challenge was too good to pass up. I mean, sure I’ve got loads of patterned skirts but I’m going to the movies today and I want to be able to get into prime movie-watching position, which for me is sitting crisscross applesauce.
Palazzo pants it is.
I’ll pick up with the Summer of Skirts on Wednesday, but if you give me leeway this one time, I promise to watch summer movies on Tuesdays and Thursdays so as not to interfere with my plans any further.
And if that’s not taking OCD to a new level, I don’t know what is. 😜
Anyhow, this week not only signals the official beginning of my summer wardrobe, it also marks the end of the road with Anne and her 52 Pick-me-up challenges. The end, that is, of her Wednesday to Wednesday scheduling. She’d mentioned moving the linkup to a more MCC-friendly Sunday to Sunday and I, for one, look forward to a new year of SpyGirl challenges.
This week, then, Anne and I present to you Groovin’ in the 60s. (Which, btw, is part of the reason for rule-breaking). According to Sammy Davis Vintage, bell bottoms – or palazzo pants – are one of the top ten ways to sport your inner hippie. I took it one step further and “burned my bra” for this look, wearing the tank top au natural and therefore eliminating unsightly straps. I also wore my new sunnies from Old Navy because I like the beachy vibe it gives the look.
My neck felt a bit bare, however, so I’d already planned to wear one of my statement necklaces, but lo and behold! What should come in the mail but my birthday present from KS #2! Lookit! Lookit! Isn’t it beeyootiful?! I thought I wanted it in silver but the gold is so much more luxe; I’m glad she didn’t listen to me and chose wisely instead.
All in all, I’m pretty pleased with my ensemble. So much so that I’m not even gonna whinge about baring arms.
