Outfit :Spotty with a Chance of Green

This outfit was the result of a need to wear yet another long skirt in a line of long skirts because the spider bites on my lower legs still look gross.  Now they're all scabbish.  Urgh.  I don't have that many dressy or business-casual long skirts.  I'm generally a knee-skirt wearer, so more than a week's worth of long skirts gets me scraping the bottom of the barrel.

I got this spotty number on super-clearance at Cato a few years ago, and it is about 2 sizes too big.  I could take it in, but it has a weirdly attached lining, and I'm too lazy to do much more than taking a seam or two up either side, so fixing linings on rando seldom-worn articles of clothing are just not in the cards.

I'm not crazy about the sweater, either.  I wear it to work because it has 3/4 sleeves, and I don't have to worry about getting the white cuffs dirty, as I do with my long-sleeved light-colored cardigans. So I look baggy and sloppy, but not dingy and scroungy.  Good tradeoff?

The grassy green of the tee, helps a bit, I think.  I have to be careful with the greens I wear, as the wrong shade can make me look horrific. This particular green is iffy, so I separated it from my face with my trusty black scarf.

I also enjoy these ruffle-top shoes.  They are comfortable, which is rather rare for $6 Cato shoes.  I was hoofing around in these puppies all day, and my feet felt fine.  The ruffly elastic bit did leave a rather deep indentation across the top of my foot  but it didn't hurt.
