This outfit has a very sex...agenarian feel to it. At least I think so. First there's the Mr. Rogers cardigan and the black velvet bow necklace looks like a bowtie. Then, the dress that I thrifted and altered looks like a dress shirt.  And my specs are huge, like, another era huge. Granpappy much?

Nonetheless, I am completely enamored by it. Whenever I look at this blue dress, I can only see myself wearing it exactly like this forever. Well, maybe until it warms up. 

Happy Weekend!
