[Summer 30 for 30: Outfit 18]
Tank top: Karen Kane
Skirt: Karen Kane
I'm breaking all sorts of rules today. Mixing patterns AND wearing brownish shoes with with black*. I would have worn black shoes, but last time I wore this skirt with black flats, my legs looked like stumps. My 30 items doesn't include black heels, so what could I do? But the stripes and floral is something that I've been intending to try out, and I kind of liked it.
I also cheated a bit and wore a cardigan over this outfit at work. It was necessary because the majority of the shirts I included are tank tops, and I only have two cardigans and a blazer for cover-up. Bad planning on my part. I'm not going to wear just a tank top into the office! Not that we have a rule against tank tops, but it's just not tank-top weather here in Seattle. It's a little depressing when stores are bringing out their fall lines and we're still waiting for summer to start.
I thought this picture was hilarious and accurate:
Yep, that about sums it up.
* I wear black and brown together ALL the time, but I usually try to tie in something brown like a brown belt or brown-ish tones elsewhere in the outfit. This outfit was an exception.
