I knew that I wanted to wear the shirt regardless, and decided to forgo the trousers that I had initially planned to wear. On days like this solids just seemed to work best for the occasion. Although, I decided to don a mini stripe with the skirt the whole outfit had a pleasing effect to me because of the layering of pleats on the shirt.
For some reason I always think of stairs when I wear this shirt. I believe my inspiration was subconsciously a staircase even for this look! Imagine, the skirt as the custom posts and my shirt representing the actual stairs, perhaps heightened in a spiraling fashion upheld by the woven stripes as support.
Subtle embellishments: I added colour blocked heels to finish the look. It was a nice welcome to fall, with a peek-a-boo open-toe end of summer lingering balance.
I hope your week has been going well so far. Is it me or does each week and month seem to breeze by rather speedily these days?
