Miss Laura, we love you on Big Little Lies (and most other things you do) and you sure do give a charming interview, but we’re afraid neither of those things are going to overcome our feelings about your choices here.
Actually, that’s not quite true. We LOVE your choices here – specifically, the skirt and boots. We just think it was kind of a huge mistake to pair them. They’re fighting with each other for dominance and because they’re so matchy and similar, the bottom half of the ensemble comes off a little costume-y. And because that bottom half is so visually heavy and focus-pulling, the top half just looks like an after thought.
We’d have saved these boots for a completely different look – because they really are spectacular – and guided her toward footwear and tights that would help tie the skirt and sweater together. Although to be perfectly honest, there are much better sweaters out there than that somewhat plain one.
