Last time I wore this outfit, the proportions were off:
At the time, I blamed it on the boots, but it wasn’t entirely their fault. It was the combination of the boots and the skirt.
Now, I’m the first to admit that I don’t always pay attention to proportion. Looking at my pictures, I think I sometimes treat this is a personal smile blog instead of a personal style blog. Which is fine, I like to smile (obviously, I guess), but I do also like style. So, this time around, I shortened the skirt and remixed the outfit with different shoes:

And, I think it worked. It’s still a color combination I love; it’s just also now an outfit that I love. I kept the same butterscotch sweater (thrifted) and paired it with the same mauve skirt (thrifted and now hemmed). I added the same gray Swiss dot tights (Hue via Macys) and the same silk bow tie (thrifted). But, this time I wore burgundy pumps (Naya “Jada” via Nordstrom) instead of boots; which, along with the shortened skirt, made all the difference.
Also, it snowed today in Oregon. A lot. My friend Kathy said it was a sign of the impending apocalypse. I heard “zombie apocalypse” and made this face:
And with that, I wish you all a Happy Wednesday!
