K. snapped these pictures before we left to roadtrip back to my mom's place. This is a new outfit for me, and I'm feeling pretty enthusiastic about it. I thrifted this shirt a few months back, imagining that I'd need to wear it with a high-waisted pencil skirt because it looked way too short for pants. But when I tried it on with the intended black skirt for a date night, it felt totally blah; it hit me in the wrong place, and I looked like I had no shape at all. Already convinced that the length wouldn't be especially flattering with pants, this top remained neglected in my closet. Until I tossed it over my faithful black skinnies today on a whim. This has been happening to me a lot lately, and it's been great to let go of some of my internalized rules about proportions that work. Being wrong has never felt better!
