Outfit for a Monday: De-Construction of Brown, with Leopard Print
Sometimes, perhaps even most times, my more creatively compiled outfits come together when I am running a bit late, in the shower, rinsing copious lather from long hair, fretting about the potential of traffic, have not given a single thought to what I am going to clothe my body with, then drying off, and I need to make a sudden decision. Although not quite the throngs of a do-or-die situation that may have confronted our newly bipedal hunting and gathering ancestors, adrenaline is rushing and pulsing nonetheless.
On Monday, confronted with this anxiety and a heightened sense of intuition for my closet, I decided on two slightly older pieces, of the tried but true variety: this lighter toned leopard print cardigan and a deep chocolate bubble hem skirt. To invigorate these well worn articles, I paired deep indigo tights and a warm goldenrod yellow sweater shell, complementing the brown, evoking the chromatic components of the whole.
I will probably never tire of this golden snakeskin leather belt; it has proven to accent even the plainest of outfits.
These teardrop drop earrings were a recent find from an antique open house event that I attended with my mother, while relaxing at home over the Thanksgiving holiday.
