This week is brought to you by: “leopard flats, simple black tee, skinny jeans, fitted cardigan, statement necklace, emerald, and camel”.
For your viewing pleasure, I give you: skinny jeans and emerald.
The extra bits: So this is yet another pre-made, pre-photographed outfit, two months ago created to be exact. I was to wear it for International Women’s Day, thus the green and purple, but it got too hot that day and I scrapped it for another. Then I was to wear it for Earth Day because of the green and the nature print, but I didn’t feel like wearing velvet on a field trip.
I really thought this was just the bad luck outfit and was getting ready to delete the pics from my phone and break it down from the hanger and re-purpose the different bits in another ensemble for another day.
But Alex very fortuitously handed me an opportunity to make use of it with her week’s Blogging Besties prompt, and rather than wasting my time and effort, I chose the lesser of two evils and decided to eschew my usual “Chucks on Friday” routine to finally showcase this outfit.
I really am enamored of the photo print of this top, as well as with its Audrey Hepburn-esque collar and its forgiving fabric. It truly is a win-win on all fronts and one would be hard-pressed to identify it as a mere Forever 21/fast-fashion piece; it’s that luxe in person.
I always have issues with styling green, and these pants are no exception. I feel vaguely leprechaun-ish in it, a feeling that’s exacerbated by my wearing black boots. Thank goodness the fab top coupled with the opulent purple velvet counteracts any major uneasiness I have.
And really, I’m just happy I can finally delete all these pics from my phone without feeling guilty.
Vive le vendredi!
