Aesthetically speaking, I couldn’t tell you why I didn’t feature this top sooner. I love Zara and I love cobalt. I’m embarrassed to say this item fell victim to the occasional “buy it and forget it” syndrome. I bought this top a while back and forgot that I had it. I found it somewhere in the back of my closet with the tags still on. It was one of those out of sight out of mind deals.
So can we talk about skirt length and high heels? For me, the shorter the skirt, the more uncomfortable I feel wearing it with high heels. I think there is a fine line between looking sleek and chic in heels and looking like you’re trying too hard. I must have tried on at least three different pairs of heels with this outfit and somehow, in my eyes, they all looked a bit too risqué. I don’t think the skirt is really all that short. I think I could have easily worn medium heels with this outfit and I probably would have if I were going out on a date night with my hubby, but I wore this outfit to church yesterday so I kept it a little more conservative with the low wedges. Not that my church is that conservative or anything but there is no need to draw unnecessary attention to myself. How about you? How short is too short for you?
Do I look relaxed in these pictures? If I don’t, there is a reason for it. I took these pictures after we had a huge Japanese steakhouse dinner which included an oversized portion of very salty fried rice. I don’t know about you but I get bloated almost immediately. I’m trying very hard to hide my food baby in these pictures and I’m just not enjoying it. I don’t know what I was thinking but sometimes we have to fit in the photo shoots whenever we can, even if it’s after a huge meal, to my dismay.
