I never leave the house looking like I didn’t make an effort…but every once in a while, I’ll hit on a combination that makes me feel downright invincible!!
And the world was definitely my oyster when today’s outfit came together, dear readers!! Using shorts as a starting point for a dressy – instead of a casual – look is something that’s still relatively new to me…but when said shorts are constructed out of this really cool faux-leather, and when they’re paired with some reptile-patterned tights and wedge booties, then there’s simply no mistaking them for beachwear!!
My ivory-coloured plush top was cozy enough to allow me to go without a coat for a leisurely afternoon of Starbucks and shopping (luckily my super-powers weren’t actually needed this time, haha!!) And this wide-brimmed hat and Sherpa clutch?? I couldn’t imagine more perfect finishing touches!!
It really is true that the right outfit can sometimes transform into a sort of “bulletproof vest” when we leave the comfort zone of home…so now I’d love to hear if you’ve ever created an ensemble that had you ready to take on the world!!
P.S. When it comes to taking on the world, my friend Dana over at “Dana loves fashion and music” is doing just that; she’s started the WabiSabi Project as a wonderfully easy way for bloggers from around the globe to get to know one another…please let her know that you’d like to participate, and she’ll take care of all the rest!!
