aerobics instructor off duty for the day

I wasn't exactly sure how to wear this mesh leotard from American Apparel. It was one of those random items I picked up at the AA rummage sale that I went to back in November. Since it was a random spur of the moment purchase I hardly ever thought about wearing it, but this morning I decided to try to style it somehow. The crochet cape has been getting a lot of wear and I like how it helps to tone down the brightness of the skirt as well as make this rather scandalous leotard more tame.

I feel like an 80's aerobics instructor off duty in this outfit.

flats bought at a boutique in Lithuania. Winners skirt. Costa Blanca cape. AA leotard.

HAHHA. I love the descriptions. Your amazing poncho definitely "tames the scandolous" leotard. And you definitely don't look like an "80s instructor."

I love this look. That poncho is SO rad.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Ah, I love the leotard. It's a lovely colour, and fits you beautifully. Haha, I like the comparison to an 80s aerobics instructor. I'd dress 80s all day everyday if it were socially acceptable. ;)
