On the Fly

On occasion I've been known to pull together a pretty sweet outfit without even trying. Case in point: yesterday. The screen door place called to say it was ready for pick-up (as you may recall it flew off the hinges Beverly Hillbillies style over the long weekend and...uh, yeah we'll just leave it at that) so I pulled on a skirt, hiked it up as a dress, added a belt and a little lace vest and ta-da!

Why have I never tried this before? Mysteries of the universe.
~Details: Dress/Skirt-Mossimo, Vest-H&M (old, but here's a similar one), Sandals-Matt Bernson(old), 
Fringe Bag-Brandy & Melville (similar), Sunglasses-Anthropologie~

Why do things look a million times better on you than on the model...if I just saw it in the store or online I'd walk right by....

That skirt works really well as a dress - well done. You're like a fashion MacGyver.

if I had to create an outfit on the fly it would consist of jeans and a tee. your outfit is way better.

I want those sandals!

Gracey at Fashion for Giants said...

I've found my outfits are better when I just throw stuff on as well. I over-think my clothes too often.

You look amazing. If I had the right pieces, I'd recreate this in a heartbeat.
