now you're just a skirt that I used to know

Tuesday, September 4

   Not sure exactly when I got this skirt, but I do remember it was in high-school, pre-driver's license, because I made my older brother take me to get it. I shouldn't even say "made" because I luckily have four brothers who actually enjoy shopping. He said, "Yeah, I like it." and I loved it. Definitely a pre-meditated purchase.
top- borrowed from Jacqui (Gap), belt- c/o Carina (F21), skirt- H&M, sandals- Old Navy
Now I'm not sure, it's been hanging in my closet all summer. I still love the print, but I think the cut is a little weird. It goes up high, needed a belt, and will probably plague me with adjustments all day (Editors Note: As of 12:43 pm, this outfit is a pain!). 
I spent this weekend consoling myself over the fact that I simply cannot have all my clothes in my closet. About half of them must go in our basement, lest I forfeit my sanity. I must say, my closet is SO neat (I am tempted to even post a picture. I am a nerd.) and I will have to select and switch-out things that I want to wear. 
Also, welcome to my front porch! My new (old) house is loaded with outfit photo-ops galore. The fashion blogger inside of me says yay! 

   In case you were wondering where I'll be tonight, I'll be in Physics lab aka my Twitter feed will be overflowing. Once again I will wear an outfit to lab not appropriate for gravity and measurements, but I have to keep myself interested somehow!
   Don't you love short weeks? I am confused, but excited nonetheless! Thanks for reading!

love the skirt - but yes, my pet peeve is a cute outfit that causes me so much frustration from twisting/turning/tucking it all day!
Yay for a photo-op-able front porch though!

I love this outfit! Grey and yellow is one of my all-time favorite color combinations (if you couldn't tell from my blog, haha). Usually, I miss being in school, but I definitely do not miss night time science labs!
Your porch is also awesome! Hope you are having a wonderful day and enjoy the short (but yes, confusing)week!

Thanks Jenny! I did love this skirt so I'm just trying to figure out if I still love it. But the votes are unanimous!

I have to say that I am desperately in love with this outfit. It makes me want to run out and buy a yellow belt to go with my yellow sandals. You look precious, so I'm sad that the outfit turned out to be such a pain. Phooey on uncomfortable ensembles. :(

Priya said...

Thank you Miss Doyle! The yellow was a fun pop, and fun to change out of too!

Ilse said...
