Tons of more photos of this outfit on my blog!
Oh – and I would love it if you wanted to check out my first ever outfit video…
I named this my True Blue-outfit, and I’m in love with it. It doesn’t happen to me a lot that I feel entirely comfortable and confident in what I’m wearing, at least not when I dress up instead of down – but in this, I felt 100% myself.
Also, it rarely happens that I get the feeling that everything, from make up and hair all the way down to the shoes, is connected. That I wouldn’t change one single piece because it just wouldn’t be the same.
Before I put this outfit together, I tried on another, also based around the transparent navy shirt (I bought it yesterday and I’m so happy I did!). I had on a pair of high wasted black satin American Apparel-shorts and wedges and all of the items should have looked great together… except that they didn’t. I couldn’t put my finger on exactly what was wrong – hey, I’m no expert, but I do know when something really isn’t working – so simply admitted defeat and started all over. And it worked! At least I think so. And to be honest, that’s all that matters, since we can’t all always agree… right? :)
Oh, and I’m wearing the shirt backwards. The buttons are supposed to be in the back and some weird ruffles in the front. Well that ain’t gonna happen! I just cut off the lable tag and now it looks exactly like I want it. And the best thing about the sheer fabric is that there’s finally a point wearing the beautiful lace underwear I’m crazy about!
