Q1 of 2012, I decided that I want to wear more skirts. Different kinds. I noticed that I’ve already started with a modest skirt collection but I also noticed that the selection isn’t varied enough. A few are the denim kind, there’s one that’s studded, one’s full black lace with cobalt blue lining, some are short and tight, and some are full and long. Still, not enough choices.
I need more skirts in my life.
Wouldn’t wearing a dress be a good alternative to wearing a skirt? With dresses, I’ve already amassed a number that just about satisfies my love of dresses. Had a good start collecting them, that I did. And, yes, though both are somewhat related, there’s something about skirts that draws me in. Difficult to rotate dresses (you need to be extra resourceful to be able to wear one in the shortest interval methinks). With skirts, they give new life and purpose to a few (unused) tops, accessories, and shoes when paired in a certain way.
Enter a skirt I bought Q3 of 2012 from Miss Selfridge. It’s purple. And sheer. Paired it with a top; back is sheer with a vertical lace panel, also from Miss Selfridge. <3

I can’t pinpoint the exact reason but my present mood matches wearing skirts. I feel pretty when I can feel the swish-swoosh of the fabric against my legs while I walk. I love wearing a tank and a full maxi skirt with flat sandals. I love the idea of wearing heels with them, too.
Have you thought of something that you need more in your life? Tell me all about it!
P.S. This reminds me of a hand-me-down skirt from the big sis that I got recently. If I get around to wearing it, I’ll try to share it!
