DRESSING DAZE


10-5-09 1

I'm so in love with this outfit, I could die!  The funny thing is that I have no idea where it came from!

Usually, my daily wears have some sort of forethought behind them.  Some flicker of inspiration that gets me from point A to point B.  This morning, there was none of that.

I tried the socks on with the boots just to see what they would look like and then I spaced out for a minute and when I came to, this is what I saw in the mirror.  It was like an outer body dressing experience.  So strange, but well played, if I do say so myself.

It was my very first full day off (until the evening, that is) in over a MONTH!  I so needed a day to myself.  No appointments.  No errands.  Just Iggy, me, the park and my camera.  Banner day indeed.

Cardigan: H&M, old - Button Down: Bitten by SJP, $10 - Basket Necklace: Nanny's - Eyelet Skirt: DIYed, originally Ross, $8 - Socks: Target, $4ish - Boots: Kohl's, $16
