I still haven't posted photos here from my vacation yet (and I've only put up a handful of them on Instagram), so you're still getting "old" material here. And by "old", I mean I took the photo a couple weeks ago. I know, I'm just the worst. But I honestly don't take photos just for the sake of the blog, so these are all real outfits I am wearing, and usually, I don't post the same day. It's usually only one or two days after that I share the outfit, unless I state otherwise. But until I'm back in the states, you're probably getting old material. I have less-than-ideal internet options abroad.
Let's break down this outfit, shall we? I love that I can wear these distressed metallic silver shorts in the winter by pairing them with black tights. (The tights are really warm, by Danskin). The shorts are R13 and literally the only shorts I own right now. For some reason, I just don't wear shorts. If the weather is warm, I just throw on a skirt. They're breezier.
I threw on a graphic tank top (Express) and an oversized blazer (Elizabeth and James), and the black suede pumps are Christian Louboutin. I just think wearing menswear is super bad ass. Nothing says, "Screw your misogynist gender roles" like wearing a blazer. And not a cute girly one either. A boxy, oversized one.
I decided the only accessory I really needed was red lipstick. You can never go wrong with red. This outfit might be bordering on 4/3 instead of 4/1 (I'm referring the "types" in the Dressing Your Truth color system, where I am Type 4/1. I reference this a lot so check it out if you haven't).
Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow!
