I haven't posted an outfit in a hundred thousand years, but I've got some time on my hands today, and look, there's this shiny new thread to post in...this one's for you, softgrey :
Nude tank top
Chestnut brown (with a slight sparkle) l-s v-neck wool jersey dress - Veronique Branquinho
Pink-and-forest green knee socks w/butterfly pattern - Bernhard Willhelm
Black round-toed heels w/dotted straps - Marc by Marc Jacobs (I'd prefer the shoes without the straps for this outfit, but unfortunately they are not removeable. )
Very shoddy pics today, sorry.
