|bright winter light blasted out skirt color - see 1st pic for truer feel|
I've been re-energized, clothing-wise, by the change in weather. The ability to really layer opens up so many possibilities and reflects my truest sensibilities. It puts my dresses in a whole new perspective - i loved wearing this one as a skirt. I don't have any tall boots, so these leg warmers from mom added that tall boot flavah to this look. And the slight eeneriness of the dress collar under the sweater neckline gave me just the excuse to add this scarf and little wren pin. I felt very long and lean and loved all these smokey blues together. Plus, all knits, floaty rayons, and no waistband makes for a comfy ride.
These type of outfits, with floaty, drapey clothes on top and big strong boots at the bottom, always make me feel like a bird of prey. Raptors have those incredible wings and feathers floating and fanning, sometimes each individual feather independent of the others, all on top of those huge strong leathery talons. Grounded and soaring all at once.
