DSC07589_2 LOFT Jewel-bib Tee / Theory Larryn Skirt / Ann Taylor Patent Skinny Belt / LAUREN by Ralph Lauren Zabrina Pumps 


Do you know what’s great about this little tee? That it accessorizes itself!

You may not notice at first glance, but there are actually few things happening in this outfit:

(1) As mentioned, self-accessorized.  Too lazy to think of jewelry? No problem!

(2) The fact that this skirt sits right at the waist elongates the legs; and

(3) the high heeled pumps don’t hurt either. Leave out the strappy mary-janes and you give yourself a longer leg line.

High-waisted skirt + non-strappy pumps = long legs!

(4) While the skirt and the shoes elongate the legs, the little belt actually draws attention away from the fact that my torso is very short (and it would be really emphasized if I removed the belt); and last, but not least,

(5) This skirt flares out at the waist camouflaging my very narrow hips.

This simple outfit is actually doing a lot of work for which I’m thankful, because it disguises my true laziness.

    Very cute!  So true about the non-strappy pumps.  I love me some ankle straps but must say no.

    “it disguises my true laziness.” Those are my FAVORITE types of outfits! I love when I get compliments on them, also, because I’m snickering to myself “this couldn’t have been easier, and I’m so comfortable it should be illegal!” haha.  And I think you look very pretty in this! 😀

    Haha. Only because it’s too darn humid here in D.C. to wear pants! 😛

  11. Cool outfit breakdown Cher! I like that T – I haven’t been wearing necklaces the past couple of weeks – it’s been too hot and I have a bit of a heat rash so I just don’t want anything near my neck.  This is the perfect solution!
