I Don't Have a Thing to Wear!
Why is it when spring arrives I feel like I all I have to wear is sweaters and boots, then when fall arrives, I feel like all I have is tank tops and flip flops? Every. Single. Year. Guess what? This year's no different. So as usual, I'm sneaking some summer stuff into fall. This floral skirt is something I picked up at a yard sale this spring, but couldn't quite bring myself to wear. I think because it looked heavy visually, but now it seems appropriate. I played around and figured out a couple of different ways to style it.
...and that makes me happy!
Hmmm...there's a lot of prints going on here. Plaid blazer, blue and white striped shirt, floral skirt and buffalo checked rubber boots. My formula for winterizing summer stuff is to add a turtleneck and be done with it. I'm trying to be a little more creative with the layering this year, but sometimes things don't quite turn out like how they looked in my mind...it's still fun to experiment though.
I guess the other reason I didn't wear this was because of the awkward length; not quite a middi, not quite a maxi. So I did the ol' hike-the-skirt-over-the-boobs thing. This is the only one I've ever been able to pull that trick off with.

Are you one of those stylish people who can make their clothes do tricks by wearing them inside out, upside down and backwards?
Is your wardrobe ready for fall?
