Well it's wednesday, "hump" day and it would not be a "me" without an outting of the skirted leggings!! The Arianne corset cami I've had forever, perfect for under a blazer, esp buttoned and just peaking out, lovely jaquard, heavy not sheer and straps that cover bra straps. It's the mother of all fill is the gaps top and the colorway of black/charcoal/pearl goes with everything. The EF sweater was bought to go with the skirted leggings, very interesting change of stitching, high low, split hem, movement and I wanted to vee neck which I wear buttoned like a top so I always wear a cami underneath. I love the clear gray, texture and movement. Skirted leggings - these are very me because they solved a problem. I wear tunics with leggings, the world without end. Many are too short, above 33" but were nice and since a nice tunic is hard to find....what to do.... I looked at skirts to put over leggings but they get heavy, shift, and are fussy. During the skirt hunt I stumbled onto the EF skirted leggings. The skirt is exactly the 33" from shoulder to hem, so it made up the distance on a shorter tunic and opened up shorter tops to layer under jackets giving me a new silhouette and variety. They are me because they are functional, just my style, comfortable and versatile. I have 3 back up and will probably add more as the two in rotation begin to show wear. Over this I'm wearing the Everlane gray herringbone oversized blazer. This is my version of pattern mixing - subtle but interesting with texture thrown in - literally shades of gray. Lastly my ariat heritage lacers which I'm sure everyone is sick of hearing about. I used to ride hunters. I love paddock boots. These are fine pebbled leather. ABS insole but still acommodates an orthotic, the laces are super long so they can be tucked or wrapped twice and knotted and both look good. There's an equestrian but also a combat vibe, they last forever and I could marathon in them. This very light thin layering is a favorite technique. It's expremely difficult to find the right pieces so that's another reason this is very me!
