Old Navy Coat (old), Old Navy Tank
Tibi Silk Skirt (ebay)
Spell Deigns Dreamweaver Bag (ebay)
I bought this skirt a while back, wore it a bit that summer and then didn't wear it at all last summer. I tried to but it seemed really fussy with all of the tops I owned and it just. didn't. work. I was in the middle of a big change over in my closet and trying to figure out what I really wanted my style to be. Since then I've tried to be better about buying basics with the correct details (like how this tank has a v-neck rather than a round neckline, it makes all of the difference under my kimonos and the navy color, rather than a black, works with more items and isn't as harsh) and it's meant that items I felt really on the fence about keeping now work.
I think part of it is that I just didn't push mysself to wear it that often, it's a beautiful skirt but it's juuuust a bit too long and that makes me not want to wear it and drag the hem through the dirt. I did a quick hem and it's make this skirt more wearable, I'm excited because I feel like I have so many options to wear with it now. My favorite blogs to read are those that rewear items in their closet to the point that I feel like I really know what's in their closet and it's something I've been trying to push myself to do better these past 8 months.
