This outfit made me feel fun and playful all day. That full Boden skirt is oh-so-fun to twirl in, and wearing the tunic layered underneath the skirt helped me to keep warm while not having a thousand crazy mismatched layers on (which was my original outfit). Unfortunately, after spending a day in this outfit, I’ve come to accept the fact that this skirt really is a size or two small. I thrifted it for only a couple of dollars, so I’m not crushed. It has a small tear, so I can’t really re-sell it on Ebay. I’m going to see if I can alter it to fit me a bit better. Otherwise, there is one on Ebay right now at the right size, if I’m willing to spend about $50. I’ll try altering it first, and then we’ll see.
This outfit also gave me an opportunity to debut my new Dansko Sallys, which the lovely people at Dansko graciously gave to me for free. These shoes have so many amazing re-mixing possibilities. They’re very comfy, and I can tell that they’re going to work equally well with dresses/skirts and pants.
I think your clothes should make you feel happy. If they don’t, then you should find some that do. It’s not about price so much as it is about what makes you feel good when you wear it.
