“It looks like kitchen curtains”
That was the first impression this skirt made on my husband… But I liked it. It reminds me of the cute gingham summer dresses my mother used to wear. So, in a way the skirt evoked some happy childhood memories…
And it has pockets! And it allows free movement! It’s practical!
So, the skirt appeals to me on both emotional and rational level, and in my book that’s good enough a reason to get it. Hubby will get used to it.
The only problem is that I don’t do cute. It’s just not me. I blame all those frilly dresses I had to wear as a child, and a lifetime of being told to look pretty… Besides, anyone who knows me would describe me as terminally sarcastic, drawn to pessimism, and a bit of loose cannon when it comes to politically incorrect opinions. In other words, definitely not cute…
So, I needed to add a bad-ass t-shirt to balance the outfit out. After all, I wouldn’t want to misrepresent myself…
skirt: Zara / t-shirt: Mango (old) / bag: Furla /
shoes: Clarks / sunglasses: Marimekko
So, what do you think of this outfit: kitchen curtains, too cute, or too much attitude?
Let me know in the comments.
PS: I want to thank debwlv for the very kind comment on an old post. I tried to publish it and accidentally deleted it instead… Should not try to do these things on the iPhone, I guess… Anyway, that was a very sweet comment, and it made me very happy.
