I'm not a big fan of this look, for a few reasons, but in the interest of showing you what I actually wore, here it is. Allow me to explain, my friends.
- It looked a lot better in my head. It's a fool-proof formula: embroidered tank, high-waisted A-line skirt, neon flats, mixed metal accessories. But how it all came together? A flop. Womp womp.
- The proportions of these items of clothing feel "off." Too big in some places and too small in other places. The skirt seems a bit too long and lifeless. The tank is snug in the chest, yet with lots of fabric at my waist.
- The jewelry and accessories I chose bring me back to high school - this feels (and looks) similar to something I would have worn in my youth, with ripped jeans and sports team sweatshirts.
In other news, this skirt has made its way to my "donation" pile, and I'm feeling ok about it. Something my high school self would probably not be able to do. Look at me, all grown up!
tank: from a friend
neon flats: Kohl's
