Thanks to Angie's wrap jersey skirt capsule post I pulled out my black tube midi skirt which hasn't been used in a while but is surprisingly versatile. I already used it earlier this week with a purple tank ( I am trying to finish up with Handbag Month (which has dragged on to Handbag Quarter, haha) and I think this may finally be the last one! This cute Kate Spade camera clutch/crossbody which is adorable but totally impractical. I ended up using it as a big lipstick case inside my satchel! Please somebody do an intervention on me if I am tempted to buy another cute tiny clutch! I used my plain black satchel with a keychain charm, this one is an origami dalmatian. I had originally bought the cross body dalmatian purse, but it was again too tiny to be useful so I returned the purse and kept just the keychain. I had previously posted this bag with the bee pom pom charm ( and I have a few more keychains (ladybug, ice cream, daisy, etc). that can serve as charms to match my outfits. How fun! Rescued this plain bag from the donate pile!

Also I've been feeling rather squishy lately so it was nice to pull on this black skirt and peplum tank which ironically felt slimming (I hadn't worn this tank in a while because I was worried people would think I was pregnant--I don't know, you tell me if I'm looking too gravid!). Also I hadn't used this Tahari black leather jacket lately (tended to reach for the Spiegel instead) but it works well as a black "blazer". So this whole outfit was filled with wardrobe orphans, but they all played well together. I played up the rectangular shape and black circle of the camera lens with stripes and polka dots in my clothes and jewelry.

Thanks for letting me indulge my whimsical side yet again!
