Yesterday, Kelley, of Threads and Buttons, rescued one of her closet orphans and I remembered, “Hey, I have closet orphans – they might like to be rescued.” This skirt is the orphan I decided to rescue today:
I actually have a great fondness for all of my closet orphans; I’m just not fond enough of them to wear them regularly. This skirt is no exception; I like the color and the length and the fullness but I never wear it. At first it was because it used to be a little big in the waist. So, I took it in. And I still never wore it. But today? Today the yellow linen skirt has been liberated.
I paired the skirt (thrifted Eileen Fisher) with a knotted white blouse (Banana Republic) and leopard mini-wedges (v. old via Ross) because the skirt hinted that it liked leopard. I figured “who doesn’t” and added the leopard wedges and some bracelets (Mom-made) to tie them in. And I liked it. I just don’t know how versatile this skirt is going to be for me. The skirt would like me to point out that the fact that I don’t have the imagination for multiple pairings isn’t it’s fault. And that’s true – I should probably try harder before just giving up.
To that end, how do you all think this skirt would look with grey?
Happy Thursday, Everyone!
