Now that I ventured out of my sartorial comfort zone this past weekend (need a refresher? read post here), I am back to my regularly scheduled program of the wardrobe silhouette that I wear ad nauseam, with a cheesy smile courtesy of facial muscle exhaustion. But you're back again so you must like it too! Besties! Blossoming kinships aside, the play on proportion is what tickles my fancy in this look. A fitted skirt and blousy - er..well blouse balance each other out, only to be made whole by metallic peep toe pumps. And though I didn't turn around, my little fun fact is that I only tuck in the front part of my blouse, because I happen to like the slightly haphazard/polished mash up that ensues. Also, it helps to hide my bum when wearing a fitted skirt. There! Happy?! I admit it. The function does serve a slight vanity. But since my commute involves dozens of people walking behind me on my way to work, a little modesty never hurt anyone. And a little Spanx too. "You have too many proper, body smoothing, fitted undergarments" - said noone ever. And that is the takeaway my friends. Hope you took notes.
