This was a fun outfit because it brought so many unique items together; I also enjoyed wearing it because it's been awhile since any of these pieces (except for the boots) has seen the light of day.
I figured since I had so many one-of-a-kind items in the outfit, it was only fitting to wear my hand-knitted linen socks from Latvia, along with the boots I brought back from Prague. The vest was handmade in Finland, the skirt is from the UK, and the shirt was made by a local SF desinger, making this quite the international look.
Another thing to note about this outfit is that it is essentially monochrome. The matching hues of the shirt and boots give some continuity to the outfit, while the buttery-beige vest, herringbone patterned skirt, and light beige socks bring in both a variety of shades as well as some textural elements.
