earrings - vintage shop in Copenhagen / purse - Athens tourist shop / scoop-neck tee - UO / belt - vintage, thrifted / striped maxi skirt - H&M / sandals - Target, thrifted
I can never resist dressing for a theme - I love going all out for every costume party, for every holiday (Halloween is my favorite, obviously), and, evidently, for the significant architectural works we visit on this trip. Saturday we decided to visit Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum, and I immediately started building my outfit around this striped skirt. I thought the contrasting vertical and diagonal stripes echoed the mixed geometries of the building nicely, while the sleek silhouette and sober color palette kept things appropriate to some of the heavier subject matter. The earrings were a last minute addition - I always end up wanting to sneak just a little color into otherwise neutral outfits.
Do you guys ever find yourselves dressing to 'match' certain places you visit?
