Since I started the capsule wardrobe, I’ve become a smarter shopper. I still want to cut down on my shopping, but what I buy works well in my wardrobe and I’m always excited about wearing them. Once in a while, though, I still make a purchase that I regret afterward. Like this skirt. I’ve been looking for a lighter-colored skirt, so when I saw this online, I thought it’d be great – the color is exactly what I’m looking for, the pleats look fun, and it has pockets! Perfect, right?
WRONG. When I got it, it turns out to be too short. I mean, it is knee-length on the model, so I fully expected it to look like a midi on me. Instead it looks like a school uniform on me. I know the styling doesn’t help, but nothing looks right with it. The worst thing is, it was on final sale so I couldn’t return it. I don’t know. I guess I’ll try it again in the fall with sweaters and boots to see if I can make it look more age-appropriate, if not, I’ll put away until my niece grows up 😛
Shirt: Mango, Skirt & Sneakers: local shops
And here are my outfits this week – the colors are very appropriate for a stormy, rainy week, don’t you think?
P/S: Have a safe and fun Fourth of July, my US readers! I did put together a couple of red, white, and blue outfits, which I’ll post next week.
