Daily Outfit for Tuesday, April 19, 2011
Even though this skirt is a mite puffy, it’s also plaid, and in my book that gets extra points. Also? Pockets:
Like yesterday’s skirt, this skirt is thrifted. In fact, the majority of the skirts in my closet are thrifted because my preferences run towards full and knee-length and regular retail shopping often doesn’t work for me. In stores, especially before this year, it seems like the only thing I could find were mini-skirts, or pencil skirts, or my personal favorite, pencil-minis. None of which are good for bike riding; so I thrift a lot of my skirts, which works well for both my wallet and my lifestyle.
I paired my puffy plaid skirt with my chambray tunic-as-shirt (Old Navy), skinny leather belt (Gap) and Born Crown riding boots (Nordstrom). This outfit is a little bit tougher than yesterday’s, but I think the skirt sort of ruins any dreams of real toughness, and I’m okay with that. I really liked this outfit and as we established yesterday, I’m not all that tough, so I think this is good.
In other news, you may have noticed that I let my knees out today. They fussed a bit that my ankles have been having all the fun. And it’s true, my ankles are party animals. But, I didn’t want my knees to get jealous, so I turned them loose today. They were a bit chilly but happy.
At this rate, we might actually see some tights-free leg within the next couple of months. Dare to dream, right?
Happy Tuesday, All; I hope it was a great one!
