but that’s got precious little to do with me.
I was inspired by playing with fire’s style, especially how she wears polkadotted tights in sandals with seemingly simple but actually quite intricate looks, so I tried her on for size! I started with this skirt, before I realized I was being inspired. I just wanted to wear this cheapass h&m skirt: I had been looking for a flowy, light colored, short, high waisted skirt and I found this one at h&m, cost like 10 euros or something: too good to pass up on. I had this vision in my mind of wearing it with polkadotted tights since the weather has been stinky enough to have to wear tights again. And then the conundrum began: dark top to match the tights, or light top to match the skirt? As you can see, I settled on a bit of both: a black top with tiny white polkadots all over. And you can’t really see it here, but the skirt has a really fine light blue striped print so I was printmix central again. Normally I would’ve just put some black ankleboots with this outfit, but this is where I realized that the entire look kind of maybe possible sort of made me think of playingwithfire’s style. And somehow, it felt right to put these dusty pink wedges with it to hightlight the cuteness and femininity of the look and to add some quirk. That girl is all about her dusty pinks and I adore it. A very light, almost skintone shade of pink is really an “it” color if you ask me: both soft and edgy, a neutral with some vibrancy. And it doesn’t look good on me, so I just use it to accesorize!
And there you have it u guyzzzzzzzz
