Soon, my warm-weather pieces will go into hibernation under my bed…
This skirt is in line for storage, but I might push myself to try styling it with tights first. I think tights are functional, but they often ruin outfits that don’t need the added element. As a result, I get bored and frustrated dressing in the depths of winter, and often wear dark outfits with black tights on repeat. Please help me by sharing any cold-weather pairing suggestions for this skirt!
For the hundredth time, thank you again R.L. for selling me this blouse. I don’t look down on polyester, because sometimes it results in amazingly drapey and comfortable pieces like this, while being lower-maintenance than silk. Gap – please make more tops like this, and please do it in petite sizing too next time!
Don’t you love discovering cute pairings by accident? Last month when we were blessed with two days of mild weather, I was on my way out the door in this blouse, skirt, and shoe combo. I asked the same question that I ask every day: “Nick, how do I look?” He gazed over me passively (as he does 99% of the time, yet I still value his opinion dearly) and said I resembled a neutral blob. Disgruntled, I ran back into the bedroom and grabbed the first non-neutral layer I could find, and turned out liking the end result much more.
Readers – Do you ask your significant other for fashion advice? : )
