I have two outfits to share today, because I wasn't sure if today's This or That counted for skirts or not. It is Colored Bottoms or Printed Bottoms for today. So I have an outfit from the weekend and my outfit for today and hope I somehow covered this challenge well.
So this first outfit was from Saturday. It was mega hot outside, so shorts were a must. I love, love, LOVE these plaid shorts. They are comfy, they go with everything and I remember that even though I bought them in an actual department store (Herbergers) I got them for an amazing deal, they were five dollars. I don't know why I remember that, but I guess I could say I never forget a deal! Anyway, these are my "printed bottom" look.
These next pictures are today's outfit and they posed a challenge of course because it was cloudy and threatening rain this morning so I had to go inside. I think the pantry is no longer my favorite indoor picture spot.
I chose a colored skirt to be a "colored bottom" because I don't have any colored pants/capris for summer. So, you get a purple skirt! And the platform sandals I've been talking about all week! Finally! The Pants Monkey commented as I was leaving this morning "New shoes?" I said no, I'd worn them once before and he said "well I didn't see them, they are cute!" I love that he thinks my shoes are cute! I also had a male co-worker comment on them too, that he thought they were cute. I do find it funny when I get compliments from men!
The only problem I have with these sandals is getting the laced part to stay up. Anyone else have shoes like these? Any tips or suggestions? This next picture turned out much better, even if you can't see the shoes as well.
I feel kind of like a ballerina today in a way, flowy skirt and laced sandals? Total ballerina. I want to twirl around the office. I might get some odd looks though!
