I recently re-enrolled in French classes – it’s been a long time since I’ve studied the language, but it’s a labor of love and I feel the need to refresh my brain a little on the finer points of French conjugation. To wash away my nerves, I decided to don a plucky little outfit and sip some café au lait while perusing my brand new textbook.
Luckily it was sunny and warm; perfect for cute little skirts, still paired with knee-high boots. This outfit seems so fall-like, but since spring in the Emerald City is so much like fall (and winter for that matter), I figured I’d be fine just this once.
I definitely felt a little “Francophone” in my knit beret and striped top. Oh, hello! Do not mind the mess, or little G’s dog bed in the background. As for my outfit, I jazzed it up with my red Fluevog boots, and this crazy beaded granny-necklace. The great part is all the red matched the lining of my blazer.
The color combo felt a little strange when I originally pulled it out, but with a few finishing touches, I think it came together well.
What I wore:
- Striped sweater top: Banana Republic
- Gray tank: J Crew
- Gray skirt: Papaya
- Black knee socks: Sockdreams
- Red embroidered leather boots: Fluevog
- Denim blazer: Thrifted
- Red beaded necklace: Vintage – from Mr.’s Granny
- Blue crochet beret: Bird & Belle (AKA: Made by Me!)
The weather held, and class was great! I was a little nervous, but my nerves were swept under the rug toute de suite. It turns out I’d actually forgotten less than I originally thought!
Unfortunately, the weather was not as kind, and the very next day was rainy and gray. I stashed my little skirt away for the moment – until the sun comes back out and the rain goes away.
