Challenge Outfit III: Alternate Looks.
Today's original outfit was inspired by this editorial.
I've always had a secret love affair for drappy, slightly baggy feminine masculine looks (I'm clearly well-versed in fashion related terms), which, in my opinion, is ridiculously chic when carried off by the right person. However, as I've neither the figure, height nor (importantly) clothing to pull it off, rummaging through my cupboard resulted in this.
Similar to my aversion to jeans, I dislike wearing long shorts. Basically I feel that any sort of pants longer than mid thigh looks strange on me. Don't ask me to explain my neuroses. All I know is that I have a heap of them and am frequently told that they are irrational (although I'm not entirely convinced). Consequently, these thoughts were what caused me to make a last minute outfit alteration.
Funny how changing into shorts, tights and flats can change the look of the entire outfit. I also tried wearing a hat as per my previous post, but soon realized that my bun prevented them from sitting properly on my head. Oh well.
