What does a software developer do when her computer is in the shop? Why, play in her closet, of course (never mind the assigned reading, ahem).
I had fun too, making 70s inspired outfits. I wasn't ambitious enough to do twiggy makup or straighten my hair (or add a headband even), and all my hats are packed for our upcoming move. So you get the lazy hippy variety of outfits today.
#1 red turtleneck tucked into tan skirt (about as "mini" as I get). Mary jane shoes, and bummer that I purged my red tights. (inspiration pic in #2)
#3 purple western shirt, unbuttoned as far as decent, with tan skirt. Same mary jane shoes, and bummer again about the red tights. (inspiration pic in #4)
#5 double denim, top worn tucked in to high-waist bootcuts (sans belt!), that aren't wide enough to cover my shoes, and need to be hemmed an inch up. I swear these fit me last week - why do they look too big now?! (#7 is inspiration pic)
#6 double denim attempt number 2. Somehow I liked the idea of a denim dress over flares as a 70s idea, even though I didn't have an inspiration pic for that specific silhouette. Does it work? (I think I'd wear it over skinnies today though).
#8 - continuing the 70s theme by wearing a turtleneck and flares for working from home today. Or, make that playing around while my computer is broke...
#9 a failed attempt at flowy-top tucked into high-waist bootcut silhouette. I think these jeans are just too roomy for it. (inspiration in #10)
I played with my culottes too - I'll make that another post. Then I really had better do some work....
All comments - especially suggestions for improvement!
