Another rainy day calls for another classic look. I won't lie, after I put this on I thought to myself, did I wear this exact outfit once before? Turns out the answer is Yeah, pretty much. I guess for some reason I feel the need to wear stripes with this skirt, and the dainty little shoes cleverly counterbalance what would otherwise be a whole lot of skirt (in my opinion).
(shirt: tjmaxx; trench: h&m; scarf/skirt/shoes: thrifted)
I sometimes flounder when dressing myself because there are outfits I have in mind that I really want to wear but I either want to save them for the weekend (when I might be doing something other than sitting in a cubicle) or I want to wait a certain amount of time before repeating the same item of clothing (usually ~2 weeks). If it weren't for the blog I'd be wearing these things willy-nilly, and while I do appreciate that the blog pushes me to be more creative/mix it up, sometimes I just want to wear that mustard dress, even if I wore a similar mustard dress the day before.
Anyway, last night I went to have dinner and hang out with a gal pal and we chatted over plates of pasta and rich malbec and it was lovely. Being in such a long-term relationship, I sometimes forget how awesome and important my special girlfriends are to me, so I'm really trying to make more of an effort to see them on a regular basis. It's always so great when I do. Go hug a girlfriend, everyone! :)
