Today was defined by items that are difficult to wear. I started with this kind of odd (but kind of cute?) trench coat dress. I'm not really sure if it's supposed to be worn as a dress or a jacket because the slit comes up super high. I decided to wear a nude slip underneath, only to discover that it rides up when I walk. I ended up pinning the dress shut while at work. Anyway, I wanted to cinch the dress with a gorgeous vintage leather flower belt. I've had it for a couple of years but can't, for the life of me, figure out how it works! It's strangely designed and just doesn't stay put. So after fumbling with that for awhile, I decided to take the easy way out and throw on some black and red accessories. My troubles only continued when I remembered this bow belt requires an office clip to stay on, and these sandals have issues, too. They should be incredibly comfortable (the straps are elastic and the soles are soft and flexible), but they're astoundingly narrow. Whew! Anyway, here's hoping for a fuss-free day tomorrow.
