When I did a week of Monochromania (i.e. wearing the same colour or tones of the same colour top-to-bottom) earlier this month, I had another outfit planned that I had to nix due to hot weather. And here it is.check out the guy's shoulders).
Actually, this outfit was a real mental boost because I had a dentist appointment tonight after work, and I was hugely dreading it. I felt like I was fortified with external armour. I don't do well with dentists. I knocked out my front teeth when I was 17 and went through a solid year of surgeries and root canals; I also grow tartar like a boss, so I've gone through a few years of agonizing scaling. Pleasant stuff it is not. Anyway, I put on a tough face.
|Yeah, so scary.|
It was much warmer with this striped button-down French cuff shirt, which was last seen - oh dear - over a year ago (!) when it was in the July 2012 capsule (recap here). I did wear it three times that month, and it was packed away for the 6-month autumn/winter season. Still, only one wear...
here in August with my lace peplum top.
And there are my amazing grey wooly boots. I walked home from the dentist in them (about 20 minutes) and they were wonderfully comfy. I last wore them back in April (here, 2nd outfit). They are good early spring/early autumn boots - excellent transition boots. I'm still going bare-legged, although it's getting pretty chilly in the mornings.
I had to do my "teeth" necklace and my spider and snake ring for extra scariness!
