I'm always hoping for a Jean Seberg kind of vibe when I wear this top.

Today I've achieved more of a "this is what I wear to clean the barnacles off the summer folks' boats" vibe. Nowhere near as chic, but I like the effect, in spite of its (or maybe because of) challenging a couple of chunky girl clothing taboos.
I thought I was upping the sporty quotient of the outfit by cuffing the pants. Turns out I was just upping the stumpy leg quotient. It can be surprising how different things appear in photographs than in the mirror. I liked the way these narrow painter's pants looked with a cuff until I saw the pics. I'd benefit from a little leg elongation. Especially since I've thrown every other tenet of dressing to appear slimmer out of the window here.
