Upstairs, Downstairs

Today’s 21 Day Challenge prompt is “Mix Fancy and Casual.” I was stumped at first, because almost everything in my closet is either casual or business-casual. But after looking through Kayla’s inspiration post, I remembered that I do have an item that maybe can pass the fancy test – my pleated skirt. Not that its price has anything to do with it (I thrifted it with the tag still attached, it was originally priced at $475 – preposterous! – and marked down to $49.99 – still preposterous.)

So it seems that my “upstairs” element – the fancy skirt – is actually downstairs, and my “downstairs” element – the casual chambray shirt – is upstairs. Confused yet? ๐Ÿ˜›

Huh. I kinda looked like my sister in that photo there. A lot of people say my sister and I look alike, but we never see it, so it’s weird seeing it… now.

    This skirt is a lot of fun! It looks really cute with the Chambray. I’ve yet to convert to the chambray fan club but I love how versatile they seem to be. Love the twirl ๐Ÿ™‚
    I have the same experience with my sister. I never think we look alike until I see photos of us doing the same thing.
