You shouldn't dress like that on Sundays


This outfit originally included this black and white striped sweater instead of the plain black one, but when I looked at the finished product in the mirror, for the first time in my life I thought, "I'm too old to wear this combination." It felt more tasteful to switch to a solid colored top - although let's be honest, a neon color blocked skirt and polka dot tights are still not high on the tasteful scale. Case in point: when I was walking along the sidewalk, a homeless man who passed me by said, "You shouldn't dress like that on Sundays."



Sweater: Target
White blouse: free from aunt
Skirt: Forever 21 brand, thrifted from Crossroads Trading Co.
Tights: Asos
Shoes: Sam Edelman Kendall wedges from Piperlime
Brooch: vintage, from my mom

  5. LOL no that did not really happen?!?!?!? Pssssh! I love this look. I sometimes feel younger than I am in what I wear, but I like to call it channeling my youth. ;-) I love these fun tights and bright skirt!
