skirting the issue

“Ah, crap, I forgot a necklace.”

No, really – that was my thought here as I had begun taking pictures and walked to stop the cam & fix this egregious error. Oops!

Ok, grabbed my H&M pendant! Ready! Today I’m decked out head to toe in Mossimo from Target. You may remember this print. It’s not actually a skirt; it’s the dress I wore for Pride!

Originally I was simply going to wear it as a dress over the tank (‘cuz it sure ain’t office-appropriate otherwise), but that just looked stupid.

So I turned it into a skirt. I don’t even think the ties look too bad from the back.

I’m not sure I’m 100% in love with it, but it’s pretty fun for summer. Speaking of which, this look sort of feels like the summery sister to this outfit, don’t you think?

    I actually love this, and I think that the tie in the back is super cute.

    Well done, girl!
