And Layer Up Week continues!
And I realized TODAY that it doesn't actually start until the week of January 30th. Way to go, Sheila! Use that reading comprehension! Ha!
Oh well, I enjoy these challenges anyway, and I did all the outfits so whatever. Maybe this will inspire you to go over to Megan's blog and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! and sign up to take part in the challenge, only, you know, when it's supposed to happen.
Moving on! Today's outfit is based on "cropped over long." I don't have a lot of cropped things in my wardrobe, as it's generally not a good look for me (I'm short - 5'4" - and I'm plenty stumpified already). However, I do have this awesome jacket that is sort of cropped.second wear of it, and I do love it. Having the belt at the waist helped tremendously, just to give it some focus. This midi-length skirt (last outfit) is so fabulous - and can you tell that I'm wearing purple tights? There's a bit of purple in the pattern on the jacket and I wanted to have that extra bit of punch.
I dug into the "living vintage" accessories for these earrings:
They went well with this new Club Monaco bracelet that I picked up with my mall gift card (along with a few other things):
Jacket (Nylon by Dex, consignment), long-sleeved tee (Banana Republic, thrifted), skirt (Precis Petite, thrifted), belt (Le Chateau), shoes (Pink), earrings (LA Express, 90s), bracelet (Club Monaco).
Sorry about messing up the week, Megan! A very happy birthday to both you and Sal over at Already Pretty! How cool that two of my blog-friends have the same birthday!
