I have loads of love for this skirt. Like, oodles and boodles of love.
I love it so much, I practically stalked KS#2 when I grudgingly loaned it out to her over the summer. I’d keep hounding her about returning it until I think she finally got sick of my nagging and gave it back without having worn it just to shut me up.
I think I fell hard mainly due to the vividness of the print. This is my kind of floral, my friends – super saturated with an evenly distributed palette of primary colors so not one hue dominates the rest. Sadly, the very reasons I love it make this skirt practically persona non grata in my closet. Why? It’s so distinct and memorable that it’s impossible to wear it more than once in a month without causing the novelty junkie in me to writhe in agony.
Lucky for me, the last time I wore this skirt was over a year ago today, so I feel safe throwing it on repeat for your consumption today. Of course, now you have proof that I’m a miserable re-mixer; the completer piece I used in both looks are pretty much the same thing, yeah? And the only reason the accessorizing is any different is because I had to make today’s look yellow-compliant in accordance to Anne’s linkup challenge.
Sigh. Sometimes I feel so derivative of myself. That ever happen to you? And do you feel as stagnant and frustrated about it as I do? Or do you embrace your self-mimicry as evidence of a cohesive sense of style?
If the latter, I’d like to buy me some of that, please.
To add insult to injury, did you know that bubble necklaces are out? Double sigh.
