Copycat: Just Because

Jean jacket - check.
Striped shirt - check.
Short, black skirt - check.  (is she wearing shorts?)
Black booties - check.
Necklaces - shoot.  I hate it when I forget the accessories.  Oh well.

Sometimes, I trade flattery for fun.  It's worth it.  Just because I have hips doesn't mean I can't wear a voluminous tutu.  Just because my legs aren't a mile long and pencil thin doesn't mean I can't wear ankle booties.  Just because my skin is florescent white doesn't mean I have to cover it up or dowse myself in bronzer. 

I'm an independent woman.  It's time my wardrobe choices reflect that.  I'm learning how to wear what I want.  The days that I do, I really enjoy it.

Jacket:  Gap, thrifted
Shirt:  Boutique in one of the Caribbean Islands, don't remember which one
Skirt:  Target, kids department
Socks:  Jessica Simpson via DSW
Booties:  Thrifted via My Sister's Closet

I'm totally with you Jill!! Fun over flattery is sometimes the best way to go - if you love an outfit and rock it with a happy confidence - well, that's all one really needs to have style, right? :)

Love this outfit - it's so fun, frilly, and flattering! A trifecta!

If you fit into something from the kid's department you are doing pretty good in my book!

This is truly adorable and you rock it. I don't think everyone could.
