MMM day 2


Top: Old Navy

Skirt: Refashioned – shortened and taken in several sizes

Tights: Betsey Johnson

Boots: Impo

I once had a boyfriend who constantly attempted to get me to tan.  He was vaguely obsessed with the idea that being pale is bad.  I didn’t listen, obviously, and continued to insist that I was going to have good skin when I got older.  My heritage is Swedish – I have the sort of pale skin that can tan, but I choose not to go in the sun.  As you can see, it wasn’t the blue wall making me pale.  I am just as fluorescent standing outside in the shade.

This skirt came from Forever 21. I usually wouldn’t bother to refashion something from there, but I loved the fabric on this skirt (it’s a linen that looks like denim.)  It’s been one of my favorite skirts this winter, though it’s probably going to be too short for warm weather, due to my odd prudishness.

This is my last post before my trip – my next photos will be in the airport (maybe during my 7 hour layover in Chicago tomorrow!)
