So I’ve had this skirt in my closet now for over a year without wearing it. It was one of my impulse buys from Ross. I loved the color and the fact that it was on clearance for $9. I had no clue what I would be wearing it with but figured I’d get it anyways because it was only $9 and I LOVED the color. You know me and color…lol When I tried it on at home I just couldn’t figure any outfit combination that I liked, so this skirt just sat in a vacuum saver bag under my bed as a $9 failure. Then perusing Pinterest I found inspiration in this pin. I had all the pieces already in my closet and would have never thought to put them together. I love this color combo. It’s very bright, but the black seems to tone it down. This midi-length may not be a favorite of everyone, but I think it works for me because I am so tall, the length doesn’t make me look dowdy or too short-legged. My chartreuse sweater is lively and very complementary to the purple. The black (faux) leather moto jacket adds the edge and seems to make everything look better. As of late, you can see it has become a go to favorite of mine. A black leather moto jacket whether faux or real should be a closet staple for every woman.
One of my new goals is to maximize my wardrobe and shop my closet more. I’m challenging myself to be able to make at least four different looks from a particular clothing item. I’d say this look is a keeper, now three more to go for this skirt. I have two in mind already to include a chambray or denim button up and the other a denim jacket with perhaps a navy/white stripe tee. Stay tuned to see these looks in upcoming posts.
