Oh my gosh I actually have an outfit post for you today! Well, a little one. We went to my great-aunt's 87th birthday party yesterday, and these were our party clothes.
Top: C.luce via ModCloth | Skirt: Kamiseta (Philippine brand purchased in Manila in 2001 or 2002) | Flats: Blowfish via TJ Maxx
Simple and sweet, right? (Yes, we gave the kiddo a crew cut for the summer!) The skirt is too long for my taste but I bet it would look more stylish with heel sandals. This is one of those pieces of clothing that I rarely ever wear; it takes on sharp wrinkles in the washer/dryer and, frankly, I am too lazy to iron it properly each time I want to wear a skirt. But I'm so glad that I never gave it away. I never really had a top to go with it until I bought this forest green one a few months ago (one of my current favorites that always gets a compliment or more each time I wear it). I usually wear the top with jeans, but the skirt seemed so perfect with it, matching greens, that I made the effort to steam iron it. Very glad I did! The whole outfit looked much dressier with the skirt.
This outfit reminds me to get more green clothes, and hopefully green pumps or flats.
