I decided to make a humdrum workday more exciting yesterday by an interesting combination of Victorian-inspired and color-coordinated pieces:
I apologize for the bad quality of the photos- I was in a rush to take these before I went to work and didn't have time to set up a corner of my apartment for an actual photo shoot. I hated how my hair turned out, so after this "shoot" I changed my hair to be half-up, half-down.
I also did not wear the hat to work... I just wanted to play around with it for these photos. I think the little hats tend to look better on one when one's hair is let down.
I received compliments all day about the color combination of the red shirt with the red umbrella, the blouse itself, and the thigh highs. The heels, however, were not a fun work addition. I was so thankful when my day was done and I could remove those pesky heels.
Overall, I think this outfit was a success. I just need to work on my hair styles. Any recommendations?
