OOTD :: of schizophrenic weather and not-so-unlucky days





This week is brought to you by: “Skinny jeans, a plain white top, lace, layered necklaces, and moccasins”.

For your viewing pleasure, I give you: the plain white top and the layered necklace.

The extra bits: Many, many thanks to Whitney for this week’s inspiration list. Because I would never have put this entire ensemble together had it not been for her.

First off, I am not a white tee person. My “plain white top” would’ve defaulted to a white button up, of which I have a plethora. But button ups don’t lend themselves to showcasing properly the layered necklace – all those buttons and placket get in the way. So I had to use a tee as a base for today’s outfit.

But since I’m uber self-conscious about the way I look in a white tee (uniboob, anyone?) I knew I had to wear other things that would raise my happiness factor. The Chucks on a Friday were de rigeur, of course, but I decided increasing my happiness factor required the debut of my plaid pair. Purchased for less from the boys’ section. Woot!

The Boohoo skater skirt was also a no-brainer, especially on a hot day like today (which, by the way, is why I avoided skinny jeans today; stupid schizo SoCal weather – it was 70 and cloudy earlier in the week and now it’s 90!) and luckily, the first one I grabbed (I have ’em in all colors, remember?) was the navy.

Wait, wot?! Navy, you say?

Why, yes, I say.

White + navy + gold = nautical, you say?

Indeed, I say!

Suddenly, what was potentially an outfit low on the happiness threshold morphed into something superfun and flirty. Top it all off with a lightweight denim jacket as the completer piece (and to combat self-consciousness) and I don’t care that it’s Friday the 13th.

Vive le vendredi!
