After yesterday's huge windstorm, the weather cleared and it's back in the 70s with bright sun again. Strange. So my planned outfit was too warm, and I pulled out this great high/low Helmut Lang top that is wool and silk and is perfect for the weather. I don't wear much because it seemed like a dress-up item when I got it, but now that I put this outfit together I realize it works well in a lot of casual contexts too.
Three realizations today:
1. I really am avoiding legging jeans subconsciously. This top fit my "silk tunic and leggings" uniform a year ago, and so I'm shocked that it works so well with cropped boyfriend jeans. I need a serious revamp of my jeans wardrobe.
3. These boots hurt. I'm heartbroken. They were expensive and I basically can't wear them. I changed later into oxfords. I guess I should sell them. But, I think I figured out what (expensive) mistake I keep making in shoe sizing. I need to make sure the ball of my foot is in the right place.
3. I desperately need a crash course in accessorizing. I even forgot to put on my little silver necklace that I wear every day.
I think this introspective, blah clothing mood is just because of insomnia and delayed coffee this morning. Despite all that I do really like today's outfit.
