A Nice Contrast To The Real World

the clothes horse, vintage, retro, leather skirt, white button-up, personal style, daily outfit
We've had a couple of days of sunshine and when the temperatures hop from the 40s to the 60s I feel as if I'm actually experiencing summer...however mild that warmth might seem to others. So much of life is a matter of perspective and comparisons anyway...

I love the details and quality of this little sleeveless blouse from Family Affairs. It's just one of those classic pieces that will truly be timeless; I paired it with my leather skirt for some subtle contrast in style and fabric. Perhaps one day I will be able to wear clean-cut collared shirts with prim little skirts, but for now I'd rather play with elements of soft and hard, preppy and rocker.




Outfit details:
secondhand leather skirt
Seychelles heels (gift from my sisters)
A leather yellow skirt can't really change it's shape for a remix, but there's still a variety of outfits that can be built with it; here are a few ways I've worn it in the past.

  4. I love that the colour of the skirt matches your heels.

    I also wanted to say that it was nice to see your last post about Evaline Tarunadjaja's illustrations. I saw an exhibition of her work recently, and it's really impressive.

  41. I heart the hat. I'm thinking of getting one myself...there's a market that has pretty decent straw fedoras, and I could add my own ribbon. Not entirely sure I'm a hat person, but I guess I could give it a try.

  55. I am so in love with the saffron colour of this skirt and how versatile it is. The thing about it is that the stiffness of the fabric helps conceal anything you layer under it.
