Electric Cowboy in the Afternoon
I would like to say for the record, I am keeping up with my must list. I have worn heels at least once a week every week since I started that thing. Yesterday I paired this preppy and casual skirt with some sky high black patent leather heels (not pumps because pumps are comfortable actually). Today, I want a pedicure but thinking that might be dumb because of the blisters I got from wearing these shoes. Oh the things we go through to look chic... I wanted to look a little more dressy because I was meeting up with some friends for $5 martini happy hour at Eastland Cafe.
This shirt is pretty famous because its the shirt from all my profile pictures. I love it too. It is so bright and brings a lot of great color to my face. It reminds me of a shirt my mom had back in the 80s. The funny thing about this shirt, the name on the tag is 80's electric cowboy. The skirt on the other hand is one of those items that you have in the back of your closet and you keep it because its just classic? I knew it had been a while since I had last worn it because both my roommate and Sam said, "Where did that skirt come from?" Well, when I worked at Gap five years ago, I bought this skirt with my employee discount. I am glad I never sold it or gave it away because I finally get the chance to pull it back out of my closet and give it some new life.
