Mr. Kitty and I spend a busy Sunday hauling and lifting, helping some people out. I hate to miss a day where I get to dress cute without the restraints imposed by my work environment, so instead of the typical t-shirt and jeans for manual labor, I got creative with the shorts I bought in the summer and a satin halter top you’ve also seen before. Of course, it was too cold for shorts, and even too cold for shorts with tights. Luckily, I had just received an order from Sock Dreams featuring these babies. Yes, those are thigh-high cable-knit legwarmers!
I needed comfortable, flat footwear, so I opted for my grungy Dr. Martens Mary Janes. Not the cute ones with the heel that I’ve worn before, but a chunky flat pair that you haven’t seen yet (and may never see again). These shoes are indeed comfortable, and durable, and the straps make them just cute enough, barely.
The shrug is made by Capezio, purchased online from Discount Dance Supply. I’m not a dancer, and never have been, but Capezio opaque tights are my all-time favorite. Those are actually them that you see peeking out beneath the legwarmers. I love how the shrug echoes the line of the halter strap, creating fun shapes.
Overall, this look is skirting the edge of “sophisticated and mature” but we all need to just have a little fun once in a while. At least I kept it classy by covering up, well, just about everything!
