My wintry outfit Monday, starring a car that’s not mine

Happy mid-May, everyone!

Check me out: It appears I did not get the memo that it is 86 degrees outside, but it’s cool. It’s cool. Because my vintage-inspired blouse breathes.

And besides, sometimes you have to sacrifice comfort because you’re dying to wear a clearance-rack skirt crafted from mega-thick fabric.

So for this edition of My Outfit Monday, I paired a pricey Pinup Girl Clothing Sheer Perfection bodysuit (just don’t even look at the $$ because I’ve worn it 26,983,625 times and will wear it 26,983,625 times more) with a ribbed, asymmetrical Harlowe & Graham midi skirt that I bought for a shockingly low $15 at Nordstrom Rack (marked down from $68) but can only find for $44 on Tradesy at this point.

On my feet: A pair of Michael Antonio – Milena Sue Wedge Booties that, much like Steph’s stacked heels, have been helping me walk in from this very parking garage since 2016. They were $17, you guys. But they, too, are super hot.

I kept my accessorizing to a minimum because I feel that this elegently draped top is the star of any outfit, but I did slip on two silver rings — one from my late grandmother’s archives, the other an extremely thin $5 Kohl’s find that’s engraved with the word “hope.” (I bought it during a crisis many moons ago, and it has been my rock.)

Also featured in this post: a lovely 2016 Buick Cascada with a bunch of bells and whistles. It doesn’t belong to me or anyone I know, but it's being reviewed by our resident automotive experts, Peter Couture and Lyra Solochek, who graciously drive me around in their test cars so I can feel fancy from time to time despite owning a dented mom wagon with a trunk that doubles as a garage.

So that is all. Side note: I confess I did not wear this on Monday, as evidenced by the early-evening sky.
