So I really liked the whole vibe of the Alexa Chung for AG Jeans collection and decided to keep the dress. About two weeks ago I found the skirt version at Anthropologie, I wasn't sure.
Then I saw this blogger's take on it
I decided this would be a good transition piece to wear with sweaters, etc. I went back for it about a week later. I also read a review saying that it ran small, which helped me figure out the sizing. I don't know if the sizing is exclusive to this collection or also part of the overall shift in denim sizing that Angie talked about.
Wearing with ancient Scottish cashmere sweater from the 70's, that had a convoluted path through my family. Alexa Chung for AG Kety skirt, smart wool socks and dark brown Frye boots.
The socks are above the knee, but I didn't like how it looked, so I scrunched them down.
I'm trying to remember how do all the settings on my camera, so lighting isn't the best.
Bonus shots of steampunk penguin in my neighbor's yard. It has a story. He was left in a park near me with a letter attached it to. It said his jet pack ran out of fuel so this was safest place to land. He did notice that there some friends nearby and hoped to be with them. My neighbor has three penguins on his front step, so he was added to the group.
