This week will be tagged ‘The Skirt Series’ week. For me, this might be a bit of a challenge as I prefer wearing pants and jeans to skirts and dresses but let’s see how It goes 🙂
Dressing up cheers me up even if I have no where to go. I don’t mind spending the whole day in my room with all my clothes all over the place, mixing and matching pieces together. This act alone reminds me of clothes I might have forgotten (even though I tend to switch my clothes arrangement every now and then so I see what’s under or what I haven’t worn in a while) so I guess its safe to say, this act alone helps me be more creative with the clothes I have.
I have owned this stripped top and this stripped skirt for a while now and for some reason I have never thought of pairing them together. Not that I don’t think stripped items can’t be paired, but I can’t always remember and visualise what and what I have in my wardrobe. I think I will try out the wardrobe capsule method as mentioned on Cassie Daves blog. It’s a way of maximizing what’s in your wardrobe. You can read her post on it here.
I initially wanted to pair this stripped skirt with a print top but this stripped top caught my eye as I was arranging the mess I had made. I guess the print top will just have to wait for its turn then.
This skirt is actually an A – Line skirt and the material is thick and has this elastic feel to it. Too bad I didn’t stand properly for you all to see it the way the skirt really stands but you can sort of tell from the first picture. Maybe next time though. It’s a beeyuteeful skirt and I’m wondering why I don’t wear it. SMH!!!
Its fascinating how much the fashion world has evolved. Many years ago, pairing stripes on stripes or prints on prints or prints on stripes even, would have been looked at as awkward. But here we are, doing all sorts with fashion and I’m loving it. Its so liberating if you know what I mean. But like I say, who makes all these rules even? I think that if it looks good then it’s a yes for me.
What do you think?
