|Dress, belt & booties: Anthropologie, Scarf: from the night market in Taipei.|
Yeah, so let's face it, I don't look too intelligent in these pictures. I look like I'm thinking something along the lines of, "I like trees." My packpack also adds that little touch of Hungarian nerd chic, but oh well. This outfit was slightly accidental, I mean we were on holiday so I am wearing two of my packing staples that always come on holiday with me - my black blazer and leopard print scarf. Maybe I should have taken the scarf off, but then again, I kind of like the whole crazy "cat-on-cat" vibe. In fact, I want to wear it with my leopard belt and flats next - is that nuts?!
These phone pictures - we decided to leave our camera at home because of the weight, plus we've been to Budapest before - were taken on my birthday. Waaah! I'm old! But as my mother icily once told me when I whined about getting older, "What's the alternative?" Well, obviously the alternative is to lay down and die, Mommykins. And obviously I don't plan on doing that. Is what I didn't reply. But I was sorely tempted, hah! (My mother is awesome, by the way! She just has a low tolerance for pointless angst.)
Also, this dress, you guys! It's finally warm enough for me to wear it! I fell madly in love with it in the December catalog last year, but it was only available in the States, plus I couldn't afford it at full price anyway... so there was a lot of hoopla before I was actually lucky enough to hold it in my hands! I have to say, though, I think I'm going to take the hem down. When you've just come face-to-face with impending old-lady-hood and your legs are thiiis long, you start thinking about things like decent skirt lengths. Luckily there is a huge chunk of spare material under the hem, so it shouldn't be too hard...
