Georgie decided to join me for today's photo shoot and show off her newest toy, a stuffed platypus with a squeaker inside. Oh, how Georgie loves her squeaky plush toys. She loves them so much that eventually there are bits of fluff and stuffed body parts all over the apartment. Luckily there's a great pet store within walking distance of my place, so the beloved plush friends are easily replaced.
The upper part of this silver top is really ugly. It's just a simple tank, but the fit is horribly unflattering on me. However, I recognized the top's layering potential, so when I found it at the Goodwill for $3, I decided I could live with the limitation of needing to wear it under something else.
Today's outfit features a mix of denims, something I don't do very often. I think this is the easiest way to mix different denim pieces: choose two that aren't too close in color, and then have another non-denim item that separates the two. I don't think this outfit would work nearly as well if the top were shorter and the vest long enough to sit right next to the pants. It's also great if there's a difference in texture between the two denims. In this case, the vest is a classic rough weave, while the jeans have a smoother, slightly dressy texture.
Shoes: Bobbi Blu (OMG I wore the same pair of shoes 2 days in a row. What is the world coming to?)
