My favorite gold Alexis Bittar earrings gifted by Chase…lucky me!

I recently confessed my love for floor-sweeping lengths. It brings me back to my fifth-grade self on the hunt for the perfect long floral dress to wear with my combat boots. (I think I settled on a long satin slipdress from the kids section at Sears, it came with a powder pink jean jacket too). So here is my ode to that fifth grade dress…seventeen years later.
The outfit started with this long black knit skirt from Forever21. I instantly knew I wanted to wear them with these wedge boots, a natural choice. I will wear belt a men’s sweater over this skirt very soon, but I wanted to look a little less lazy/slouchy for work. I’m feeling pretty lousy today and big clothes wouldn’t help the cause.
I chose this leopard-print sheer top from Express circa 1999, yes, it goes way back! (It was bought at the time to wear with gold-flecked flares). For some reason I’ve kept it around and haven’t lost it.The cropped style of the top called for a longer-length tee under and then I added my fake little leather vest from Target. Next time I will stick to longer layers on top, I’m not feeling this proportion. But that’s what experimenting is for, how else would we know, right?
