I bought this top a couple of months ago, on a whim. Nothing unusual about that. In fact, that’s how I buy most of my clothes: I see something I like, try it on, and get it. But I usually have at least some sort of an idea how to make the item in question work with my existing wardrobe.
Whereas this top… Well, I saw it and sort of liked it. And I thought I should buy something a bit different for change. You know, instead of what I usually get (= another t-shirt). Of course, I had no idea what to wear it with, or if I had anything that would match the colours. Not exactly the smartest shopping strategy, I know…
Anyway, I thought it was about time to give it a go, and since denim goes with anything, why not team the top with a denim skirt?
Not very creative or innovative dressing, but that’s how I roll. I have neither the time nor the interest to play with my wardrobe. I just want to get dressed and get on with my life. Of course, I want my outfits to look good. I just don’t want to put any effort into them. Because if I have to think about how to put together an outfit, it sort of takes all the fun out of it, and dressing becomes a chore. Anything that requires planning and thinking is a chore. And that’s the antithesis of fun. Or maybe my brain is just overloaded…
Does that make sense?
As far as dressing is concerned, I just want to grab something in my wardrobe, put it on and look fabulous. Is that too much to ask?
