This dress has gotten shorter. Or I've gotten taller. Or I'm more aware of my exposed knees. Whatever it is, I needed something underneath to cover my immodesty...so I pulled a Kjrsten&Anna, Tessa, and Ashley. These ladies are amazing at layering longer skirts underneath shorter dresses and skirts. Learn from them...now me too.

I think I like this outfit. I'm unsure about the blue on blue action. That's my rules talking... At least the security guard at work liked it! And in the end, that's all that matters. Security guards, I mean. (Thank you for escorting me to my car at night that one time I got scared...just a little.)

It looks like I also pulled a Kristine (pose). She does it better, obvi. It has nothing to do with the fact that I'm obsessed with her blog and study it daily... It's not creepy if I met her, right? Or is it more creepy..

I'm wearing a thrifted Sonoma dress ($5 - buy similar!), skirt from Korea underneath ($10), lace belt (from Fay), and JCPenney heels with a JCPenney bag (both free with gift cards).

  1. Not to sound like a know it all but it's because you belted it. Unless you belt your dress all the time. When I belt a dress it makes it shorter. It seriously makes me want to punch someone right in the face. Preferably Charlie Sheen. Except I'm not violent.

    It's okay, I'm obsessed with your blog, study it daily, and look to you for posing inspiration ALL THE TIME. Okay, maybe I'm creepy. haha.

    I'm with the security guard- this outfit is great!

  6. I know you don't like the word, but that is very cute. And your company has smart guards.

  7. This is such a sweet outfit! I love it! The idea of wearing a skirt underneath the dress was brilliant, even though it was borrowed from a few fellow bloggers before. I also like how the lovely white belt seems to pull everything together. I'm also realizing that I'm in desperate need of a nice thick(er) waist-cinching belt!

  34. Your "immodesty"? That shirt didn't look short to begin with! Now I'm guiltily going through all my dresses and skirts and wondering if I need to layer them.

    p.s. You found me ages ago when you first started your site, but I didn't get into fashion until really recently now I'm a regular stalker. Love your blog.

  38. i like this but i wish there was a velcro at the bottom of the skirt option. where i live it's just not condusive to be wearing more than one layer. i get crabby in the humidity. and on fast sunday.
