Sometimes, by the end of the month, I’m all outfit-ed out. Know what I mean? I just run out of creative steam, and throw together whatever pieces from my closet catch my eye. In this case, this beanstalk print skirt. Until now, I’ve paired it with its matching top, but I decided to bust out the separates this time. It works, I guess.
I realized that I don’t like wearing these ruffle-collared blouses in the summer (I have 3 different colours), even though they’re sleevesless, because something about the high neck just screams “cold weather” to me. I’ve been on the hunt for plain shells (in navy, white and black) for ages, but still haven’t found any likely candidates. I didn’t think that my requirements were unreasonable – cotton or some breathable synthetic blend, not too sheer, not too heavy, solid colour, scoop neckline preferably. Well, these things don’t exist, apparently. Everything I find is either polyester hell, or tissue-thin, or the wrong colour, or too casual. Gah! I guess the silver lining is that fall is just around the corner, which means my trusty ruffle-collared tops will come back into regular rotation. Sigh.
