Oh yes folks, the outfit has come. The outfit which keeps me endlessly staring at my feet all day. The outfit I have been planning since I received a lovely package in the mail last Wednesday. Please welcome, the Fiorenzas.
Aren’t they beautiful? Not too long ago, I could never have imagined myself owning a pair of orange shoes. Every pair I had was black or brown. Now, it’s hard to imagine getting dressed without the option of something colorful for my feet.
That blouse came from true thifting serendipity. When I got my shoes last week, I suddenly realized that I had nothing else orange in my wardrobe. When I went on a trip to my favorite thrift store, Second Image, last week, I set out to remedy this. To my surprise, I actually found multiple red-orange items, but this was the only one I ended up really liking. It’s a very deep v-neck, so for now, I have to wear a cami underneath it. I’m considering altering it, but for now, I like the layerability.
The jeans are actually a pair from Express that you’ve seen before as flared jeans. I didn’t really like them this way, and lately I’ve been seriously craving a pair of dark wash skinny jeans. I figured it made more sense to alter these than to buy a new pair, especially since the skinny jeans I find in stores never seem to fit my curves right. Thus, a few measurements, some seam ripping, some sewing and lots of patience, and I’ve got a new pair of skinny jeans!
The inspiration for this outfit came from Kimberly’s June Inspiration Calendar. The day’s theme (Tuesday) was coral and turquoise, and while technically I’m wearing red-orange, I figured that it was close enough.
