I need to confess something. There was time in my life when I wore tops as dresses. And this time came after college. I remember one
dress top very well as it only got donated to the Goodwill last year. It was a purple empire waist tunic at best, though even that might be a stretch. I wore it to a cowboy bar here in Kansas City with black tights and literally the tallest heels known to man. It is amazing I made it out of that evening without an offer being made-if you know what I’m saying. I was obviously trying to impress a guy. He was a cage fighter. He ended up getting married to someone else later that year (in case you were wondering if Joel had a strange and mystical cage fighting past-he did not). He also ended up having a torrid love affair with his second cousin or something, the cage fighter, not Joel. Really dodged a bullet I suppose. Anywho, i digress.
The point of this story is that I have always been a sucker for a short skirt. ALWAYS. Short shorts, nah, but a short skirt (or apparently a long top) and I am in. This skirt here is SHORT. But I am a short person, so we go together. Most girls tell fiblets about their weight or age, I stretch the truth about my height. I am
5’4″ 5’2″. But I am tall for my height, so I can get away with it.
This is a great little casual outfit, and once the air is not cold enough to actually freeze my skin off I can see this exactly as it is right now minus the tights, but with Toms, or Converse All Stars, or flip flops, or no shoes at all. Can you tell I am ready for spring (but really summer)? In the mean time I will enjoy getting to wear some Valentines day socks on this Wednesday. Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes, I totally tied this top up 80’s style and I worked it and I loved it and I will do it again. At least i didn’t wear a top as a dress…this time.
Stay warm and be happy today!
