While I was in Florida I had my sister takes pics of me in this outfit so I could then write about how much I loved this skirt & how you can wear a skirt and still run around & be comfy. But then I downloaded the pics and went, “ew.” That does NOT look good.
In the interest of honesty I decided to post the pics anyway and write about what mistakes I made.
Skirt: American Apparel $34
Tank: J Crew (sold out online but similar to this one) $23
Shoes: Converse (you will get SO much wear out of gray shoes, highly recommended!) $39
I do still love the skirt but will have to figure out a different way to wear it. I’m thinking it’s the length that’s wrong. When I get dressed I try to pay attention to proportion, it’s not too hard to figure out…basically the area of your body that’s covered the most will look the biggest. For me picking the bottom half is rarely a good choice. I’m thinking of cutting off some length & making it a mini I can wear with tights. Although then I do lose some of my day-to-day wearability because getting a kid in & out of a carseat & a mini skirt should not mix. (perhaps my creepy neighbor would beg to differ)
Style tip #2 in the “what I learned from looking at pictures of myself” playbook…
Wear a bra that not only fits in the front, but THE BACK too!
I don’t think I have a particularly large amount of back fat so this just goes to show that bad undergarments can make things appear that don’t really exist. Samster & I are off to the mall & I’m going to do some seamless/tshirt type bra research. I’ll get “back” to you with the results. Hehhe, you love the bad puns, I just know it.
