What To Wear #64: Lace and Leggings and Layers, Oh My

We are promised two days of summer weather, and today is one of them. This means, based on the local forecast and years of experience in the city of Hamburg, that while I can wear a sleeveless T-shirt, layering and leggings, my trusty standbys, are not to be dismissed.

While the lacy crimson shirt is not completely see-through, it still works better with a longer tank top underneath, and so far my favorite combo is with a black one. Since the top shirt is not completely red, there is no devil Halloween costume color scheme going on here – which I have, by the way, successfully tried out once, but ’tis not the season just yet. It’s still summer, whatever the weather forecast says.

The scarf has been featured before on this blog, a flea market find from years ago and one of my favorite scarves in my * cough * modest collection. It also doubles as a party accessory when I don’t feel like wearing a necklace, but want something extra, thanks to the glittering gold thread running through it.

The gold earrings are some of the most versatile I have, picking up perfectly on the aforementioned gold bit in the scarf, and the ring adds a shot of brighter green against the subtle hues mixed in the, again, scarf.

Leggings will complete this outfit, need to decide on the color, as well as the black (I like to think) ballet-inspired flats. The ribbons complement the feminine pattern and delicacy of the lace top, and being tipped with gold fastenings, they also round up the choice of jewelry.

Ready to go.
