Long Over Short Over Long
It's funny, I had been forever thinking that I need to try-out a dress over pants kind of arrangement, and simultaneously have been wanting a front-button dress that I could wear as a vest. It's something that I have been revisiting over and over again, not realising that I had just the very piece already lurking in my closet. Such is the way with these things. As I heard a fellow audience member say this past weekend at a thing that I was at, sometimes we get the answer before we have even thought to ask the question.
I am completely in love with this look. All of it (with the exception of the shoes, they're thrifted) is from H&M (albeit not recently). The long "vest" is actually a dress, last seen here (and it looks like I shot the photos on a similarly bright, sunny day), and the trousers are several seasons old now and were originally a part of a suit.
Once again, it's definitely not warm enough for this look yet (*wrings fists towards the heavens screaming whyyyyyyy!?!?*), but it's about to be May, and I am no longer willing to wear dark woollens. I'm not participating in that. I'm opting out. The vernal Equinox was over a month ago, so I'm doing what I can to move this thing forward.
