As long as they're good-looking, who cares if they're shallow?*

Sweater: gifted (black merino wool)
Necklace: made by me—two sterling hoops, a tiny gemstone in each
Earrings: made by me, aquamarine (even though you can't see them)
Skirt: J.Crew cord pencil skirt in Shadow
Boots: La Canadienne

Hey! Finally it's reasonably bright when I get home from work.

This outfit materialized because I'd wanted to wear the sweater...was thinking of pairing it with my best grey skirt (sounds like neutral Hell, and probably would have been), but then I saw the 'Crew skirt hanging there, unworn for some weeks? It occurred to me the skirt would look bluer, were it the only colored piece in the outfit.

Have I been drinking the Crewlade lately? If only. I did return the Silk Pocket Tank for one size down. The exchange is being processed slooooowly...I even saw the Silk Pocket Tanks in the store last weekend, it's that slow...they didn't have all five shades, only Wave Crest (the blue one I'm exchanging), Pale Blossom (gorgeous, but a stain magnet if I'm wearing it), and Spicy Guava, which was surprisingly pretty irl.

Here it looks like a faded pumpkin, but the actual color is richer and browner.
