Another day, another outfit. I wore this shirt a lot last summer, but for most of this year it's just been sitting in the back of my closet. I'm not sure why, because it's one of my favorites. It's covered in tiny white bicycles, which I know is hard to see in this photo. I am really trying to pair some of my older clothes with some of my newer purchases. I have a rule that if I buy something new, something old has got to go. If I didn't, my closet would have exploded by now. I'm also trying not to purchase anything new (with the exception of a dress to wear to a fancy wedding) until school starts up again in the fall.
The skirt is from Banana Republic. I've worn it a few times and have gotten many compliments on it. At one point I was out at lunch eating a falafel when one of the buttons flew off. That was not a proud moment, but I had a sewing kit at my desk for exactly these types of situations. The buttons on this skirt are pretty flimsy so I needed to sew them on even better. I keep telling myself that the button didn't fly off because I had a food baby but because it was literally dangling by a thread. Yes...let's go with that.
All in all, this is an outfit that is cool enough for the summer but can also transition well in to fall. It's comfortable and work appropriate. Subtle nerd factor here; I paired the shirt and skirt together as a shout out to my favorite Sailor Scout.Go Sailor V!
