Middle of the Road

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

Wednesday evening to class I paired my navy blue pencil skirt with a chambray top and brown pumps.  I just finished replacing the zipper in this skirt.  It had a bit of fabric that would always catch and eventually the zipper stopped working.  I removed it and then hand-sewed in a new one.  I had originally intended to use the sewing machine but it was so intricate that I just couldn’t do it.  (I’m not that advanced of a sewer.)  My outfit is based on a pin that is similar in nature but my chambray shirt is a slouchy boyfriend style and didn’t tuck into the skirt in a neat and clean way.  I fussed with it for quite a while before I tied the ends in a knot and called it done.  I was slightly disappointed in this outfit because it didn’t come together the way that I wanted.

Thursday I went casual and sports fan mode.  The Cleveland Indians beat the Astro’s two games in a row so I chose to wear my newest Indian’s shirt.  I looked back at how I styled it the first time but I didn’t take any pictures so I just went from memory and tried to style it differently.

I went with a navy blue tank top underneath that you can’t really see, dark wash bootcut jeans, a dark brown belt, white leather Converse and simple silver jewelry.  I didn’t put too much time or effort in to pre-planning this outfit and I think that in some aspects it shows but I also believe that not every outfit has to look like it was ripped from the pages of a fashion magazine!
