There's no problem with that, of course, but when I realized this fact I wondered why it was so - I think it has to do with modesty. I tend to dress modestly, especially in the wintertime, as my blog so far would attest. BUT. The pictures in this post may just get me kicked out of that ring of folks!
Shirt: Anthro. Belt: Husband's. Skirt: Hand-me-down from friend. Shoes: Call it Spring via Zappos.
For me, propriety is not dictated by hard and fast rules of any kind. (Yes, there's a point below which I will not allow my necklines to go; and yes, there is a definite point above which my hemline cannot rise. Never ever no way.) But really, I think that it has much more to do with time, place, and company. I wore this outfit to an afternoon cookout with some female friends, partially because I was so excited to receive this skirt from a friend (I love it!) and partially to celebrate the gorgeous sunny weather we were having. I think that was appropriate. Would I wear this to teach? No way. Would I wear this to a bar? Not a chance. That's modesty for me.
Also, do you like my little side bun there? I was loving it. I have never gotten one to work well, but for that I:
1. twisted hair, starting at temple on right side, curving back along hairline to left ear.
2. pull all twisted hair into ponytail holder.
3. curl a lot. (My hair was already curled from the day before, so I skipped this.)
4. pin up in a loose, messy bun-thing.
Edit: When I posted this, I wanted to include the tutorial that showed me how to do this. I couldn't find it, but thanks to pinterest, I saw it again! Go here for better instructions, and in-process pictures. Plus, check out how cute the model is:
Have a good day, all!
