Jumping the Gun

Well, I dared to go bare-legged (almost -- I had on nude fishnets), and it turned out to be a mistake. The day was rainy and freezing and my poor legs were clad in goosebumps for most of the day. I guess I jumped the gun a little on warm weather dressing.

I did feel very cute and springy in this outfit though. I'd been meaning to pair these low-heeled Tsubos with this skirt ever since Sal gave them to me, but had somehow never gotten around to it until now. The shoes have sort of a quilted look that I think pairs really well with the mod cut of the skirt. Adding the knit cardigan gave the outfit a casual 60's collegiate vibe.

Shirt, cardigan: thrifted
Belt: Lazaro
Skirt: Anthropologie
Shoes: Tsubo

I love the colours in this outfit. Greens are such a cheerful colour to me and really suit your colouring.

I love the matching skirt and belt. And fishnets are becoming a fast favorite of mine too. Great outfit.

I wore nude fishnets and neutral shoe today too!

This is a really pretty summer look - the pale green and teal go wonderfully together. I love what I can see of that bracelet.

Aren't nude fishnets a clever way of saying "I'm too lazy to shave my legs?!"

Lesa said...

Gorgeous, love all the shades of green.

I'm not sure what I was doing, but I had to stare forever at your belt/button up shirt/cardigan to figure out what was going on at the bottom! Then I realized each layer was peeking out underneath! Very cute!

Love a nude fishnet. Great mix of colours here.

I'm glad to see other people are nude fishnet fans. I love mine when I've fallen behind on the self-tanning--or just because.

Love all the green. It's springy without being too Easter eggy.

I love this outfit. Very spring looking and the combination of colors is wonderful. Your hair looks fab also. And the green bangle is darling.

Marvelous! The skirt and shoes are so fun together.

That skirt is fantastic, and I love the little pops of print from your blouse!

This outfit is just gorgeous. I love the nude shoe with all that green. The whole thing makes me want to go and laze in a meadow, breathing spring in deep!

Sister Wolf: Yes, yes they are. It's wonderful to have products that conceal my lapses in grooming.

Jean said...

Adorable! And that bracelet!!!!!!! So much to love about this outfit: the detailing, along with the colors . . .
And nude fishnets; what a fantastic idea. After just visiting Sheila's (Ephemera), it's truly IS feeling like "spring" all over the place :-)

gah I LOVE this!!! green is my fave color, you look amazing.

nude fishnets are the coolest, plus they remind me of show choir =) minus the sequins, of course.
