I have two PSA's for you today that I learned the hard way this morning.
PSA #1 - If you don't own a slip. Buy one immediately. This is one piece of clothing that I did not assume I needed, it seemed very old times to me and kind of unnecessary when was I going to wear a slip under my clothes? Today. The answer is today. Unfortunately my lack of foresight has led me to this conundrum I am currently in!
PSA #2 - If you don't own nude tights or nylons purchase them immediately. Again I'm looking at myself here. I own eight million pairs of black tights and not a single pair of nude tights. Unless you could the nude polka dot pair that don't even fit me because I think they were meant for a 12 year old girl to wear. Why are they still in my closet? That's a very good question that I do not have a good answer too!
Okay I thought lets peruse. They are a jeans and T-shirt company so I was at a loss for what to wear. They are also a software/tech company so I was like well maybe I just wear my business clothes and call it a day they probably don't care about my fashion sense the same way a fashion company would.
Then I was like you know what no, I am going to look fashionable and professional because that is who I am.
The search began..
And ended in about two seconds because I saw the Ann Taylor shirt dress I recently bought on sale and it was perfect. Business casual and still cute!
This brings me to my slip/nylon struggle. I did not realize when I bought the dress that it was made of a very thin material, that when the wind blows it up against me you can practically see through. Hence the slip is necessary. Okay crunch time, no one is open so I'm like what the hell I'll throw on a long tank top and pray that it works.
Great it worked for the top half of me and not so much the bottom and my purple underwear.
Tights! I begin digging through the mound of tights and socks in my closet to my despair I only own black or colored tights. So I bite the bullet and go with black.
Now it works, it's not my favorite look but it definitely works and my mom made a good point that if it's necessary then you have to do it. And it doesn't make the outfit look horrendous, just not as good as it could! But I decided to share the outfit with you anyway!
For those of you wondering why I am sharing this outfit instead of my Target booties like I promised, my photographer and I had some technical issues and we need to re-shoot the photos of my Target boots so they are coming I promise! Today you will have to deal with my selfie-stick and timer cam photos!
I also figure it's kind of chilly out there lately so the tights are probably not a bad idea. I haven't decided on jewelry yet but I'm thinking maybe a layered pearl necklace? I'll post a picture of the necklace I decide on on Facebook so go give me a follow if you want to see it later on!
Do you guys own a slip or nylons? Or am I the only one who doesn't own these basic pieces! =p
