What I’m Wearing
* Jersey polka dotted dress w/ side slits from the 90’s …found this at a thrift shop a while ago but this is the first time wearing it as it never quite worked before. I wanted to pull it up through the belt, shortening the entire look but the side slits went up to high for that …kind of a bummer because it’s a bit more flattering shorter.
* Forever 21 long gray cardigan – I actually grabbed this running out the door just for warmth but ended up wearing it all day …it’s chilly already!
* Asos leather boyfriend belt
* Via Spiga lace up wedges …I have been wearing these for so long they’re starting to show wear …but I think that makes me like them even more. {I think I got them in 2006}
* Tom Ford cat eye sunglasses
* Louis Vuitton medium {30} Speedy

This outfit definitely falls under my “Orphan Chic” look I was looking forward to exploring for Fall. I originally had little beige socks on but felt like I was part of the cast of Annie. It was cute but totally unflattering. I know my husband hated the entire thing. I can always tell how he feels about my outfit by how he reacts when I walk out to kiss him goodbye. It’s very funny …and today I got nothing. Just a “Bye”. And really, I’m not sure how I feel about it either. It was a bit frumpy for me but I liked the idea.
