Balance Act



Wore this outfit on a day out to Rome and the Vatican City.
(Love how I can finally be one of those bloggers
who talk about their fun days at interesting places LOL.)

I'll be posting pictures of that soon,
but for now,
here's an outfit post, for ya.

It's all about balance, kiddies.
Here, I take a loose crop top
and pair it with a more fitted
and high-waisted pencil skirt.

I'm talking about taking
different fits and lengths
and merging it all into one outfit.

Hope you found this useful...
Leira.

(P.S.) This is unrelated,
 but my father was just having a
quick dinner all by himself in an
little restaurant downstairs.
It was dark and raining, Italian
music was playing softly,
he was drinking red wine,
and outside, he could see tiny
European cars driving past him
from his cozy little nook
inside a snugly empty restaurant.
He told this,
and I thought,
dang,
 what a magical place.

    1. I've had these for about a year? They've very soft and very durable. I've been walking all over Italy with them.
