I chickened out on biking to work AND on bare legs today. I woke up at 5:45 a.m. per usual, it was 30 degrees out, and I just couldn’t face either of those things.
Originally, I thought I’d do this red dress with magenta tights and call it color blocking. But the dress is so columnar on its own and, combined with the button and pocket details at low hip, can make me look a bit like a grain silo. So I belted it. And once the turquoise/teal belt was in the mix, my color plans shifted.
The kimono silk pumps seemed like a great way to add a light color. Have to say, though, as gorgeous as they are, they HURT. Mostly the left shoe. The outer edge dips so low that it barely contains my foot. It’s no big deal, though. I’ll just find some matching silk, create a patch, and stitch it on using my superior cobbler skills … that will both work and look fantastic, right?
Random aside: I got to have coffee with Rad today, and it was so lovely to see her again!
