Last year, I really worked hard to add little femme touches to my wardrobe by wearing skirts to more than just work, and finding the right juxtaposition for a casual dress and converses (or keds) for any season.
This year, I’m holding onto that tradition and with this temperate weather we’ve been having lately, and it has enabled me to bring out the skirts a bit sooner than last year.
If it were possible I would like to live somewhere that was perpetually Spring and Fall. Arguably the two best seasons for clothing and good hair days. Since Winter has all up and left us to fend for ourselves, I think it’s quite acceptable to step right into Spring clothing and footwear.
I had this conversation with my mom the other day, I was complaining how I missed Winter (I like seasons) and that dressing for 70 degree weather in Winter feels wrong and I don’t know what to wear. She told me to just dress for Spring. If Winter is going to forget about us, then we can go ahead and forget about Winter.
So I did.
If you know anything about me, I don’t need any excuse to get dressed up so this skirt fit right into my Sunday afternoon. It’s possibly the nicest quality. The thickness of the material is very regal and it has just the faint trace of gold thread throughout giving it an iridescent shimmer in the afternoon light. It’s like adding a little bit of luxury to your every day wear, and I truly enjoy the bit of opulence it added to my afternoon. I can’t wait to wear this skirt with a tank top or a low-backed white shirt this Spring for some rooftop excursions and parties I’m planning.
Thanks to Everly Oak Boutique for providing me with this skirt and blouse. Even though these items were gifted to me, all opinions are my own.
