This outfit was intended for a Casual Friday/Free-fall Thursday post, but I am publishing it on a Tuesday because (1) I am running behind and (2) the photos planned for Monday’s post aren’t ready. Indeed, those photos haven’t even been taken yet.
We must work with the material that’s available!
What better stands for the principle of contriving (contrivance sounds so loaded) than a tiny top layered over a graphic tee?
Two wrongs make a right may be turning into an immutable proposition.
I tried this top with cropped pants and did not care for the result.
Proportions are everything and this tiny top requires the balance of a full bottom.
By “full bottom” I mean wide-legged pants.
These cropped pants — clam-diggers, I’d say — really don’t work.
The pants give me height.
Come closer and see the top.
You’ve seen it before with a fancy skirt. You’ve also seen the fabric before, too.
To finish things off, a couple of delicate necklaces.
My efforts to find a third necklace to go with these two have, so far, turned up flat. It doesn’t seem like it should be terribly difficult, does it? The layered, delicate, gold necklaces are on-trend.
For now, I am very content with these two: my grandmother’s solitaire pendant and a luscious (some might say, edible) pearl with pave bead.
