     Week #2 of my pre-planned outfit experiment was a sartorial journey through a warming climate. #4 is basically just a cashmere tank-top, which is a totally unnecessary but awesome garment that I'm glad someone decided to make. Monday was the coldest, and will also be the focus outfit of the week, although you'll have to excuse the fact that my skin appears to be jaundice in these photos. As far as I can tell it was a weird side effect of the background wall color, and frankly I don't have the photoshop skills to fix it. 

    Essentially, I was swaddled in sweaters on Monday. The top is obviously quite cozy and warm, but this skirt is also just a leg-blanket. It is from an early Uniqo x Lemaire collab, and is very comfortable. The midi length has a tendency to make me look either a bit overly conservative, or like I'm a child wearing a skirt that is too long for me. In order to counteract this, I broke out some serious heels, and just knew that I wouldn't be able to walk fast or far. I was worried the ankle straps would undermine any leg-lengthening effects of the 4 inch heel, but for whatever reason, it still works (so says me, at least). The combo of open-toed high heels and the overtly feminine shoulder ruffles aren't something I previously would have worn to work, and it was fun to play around with in planning this outfit.
Tell me, do you wear open-toed shoes to work?

Thanks for stopping by!
