My New Old Skirt

Tuesday, February 28, 2012 9:23 PM


Though I adore this skirt, I haven't worn it in two months. The last time I washed it, even though I followed the instructions on the tag, it shrank so that the lining was longer than the main layer of the skirt; I don't sew, so I had to take it to a tailor to shorten the lining. I actually picked up the skirt at the end of January, but in the meantime it had been out of sight, out of mind. Without the skirt in my closet, I had stopped brainstorming outfits for it. And with all the thrifting I did in January, I had plenty of other things to wear. It's now time to put this skirt back into rotation, especially as winter draws to a close.

Want to know a secret? This sweater is a bit roomy at the point where it tucks into the skirt, so to keep it from blousing out too much, I tucked it into my tights. Fortunately, the top of these tights is virtually the same shade of gray as the sweater, so I didn't have to worry about it peeking above the waist of the skirt.
