I Gave This Skirt Away, Now I Want It Back

I thought I was cute the day I wore this outfit, but then…  Gather around guys and gals its short story time.

Two weeks ago, my friends and I planned to hang out to celebrate two of the lady’s upcoming birthday.  It had been awhile, and I was looking forward to seeing them.  Three days before our girl’s night out, it dawned on me - what am I going to wear?  After contemplating several options, I finally created (in my head) THE winning look. 

The day of per usual I’m running late so I didn’t really check out my outfit to make sure it was the look I was going for.    

I’m at the event enjoying my friends, living it up when the photographer grabs my attention and ask to snap a pic.  Of course!  I’m not going to pass up a good photo opt. So, I smiled for the camera. 

The next day the host shares the pic with me and to my dismay I disliked how I looked.  I immediately started judging myself, I threw shade and side-eyed my own self.  It was the skirt.  I hated how I looked in it.  I felt like it made me look dumpy and it was jacked up in the back.

As soon as I got home, I grabbed the skirt out of my closet, threw it in the bag that I was taking to Goodwill that weekend. 

Almost at the end guys, hang with me…

Ironically, I’d shot this look the weekend before the event and hadn’t gotten the pictures back.  So, I still hadn’t really gotten a good look of myself in this outfit.  As fate would have it, I dropped my donations off on Saturday and got my pictures back on Sunday.  Scrolled through each of the pictures of this look and instantly regretted giving the skirt away.  Now I want it back!

What I learned from this ordeal… I have to stop being so critical of myself. But more importantly, don’t give clothes away when I’m in my feeling!

Neon Sweater + Socks w/ Heels

By now we all know that it’s okay to wear white all year long and it’s also still cool to wear socks with heels.  Even more cooler is wearing bright colors when the weather outside is frightful.     

If you know me, you already know that I have a minor addiction to shoes and eyewear.  But what you might not know is that I’m also addicted to socks.  Although my sock collection isn’t as vast as my shoe or eyeglass collection, my love for a fun pair of socks is pretty big. 

Check out these Dot Opaque Anklet With Scalloped Top from Berkshire.  Black and white polka dots you already know!  Trend or not, socks will always have a special place in my heart.

Mini Graffiti Skirt + Neon Yellow Clutch

I swear! This Atlanta weather is bipolar.  One day it's sunny, then the next day we're bracing ourselves for a mini hurricane.  I was suppose to shoot yesterday but had to reschedule for this weekend due to the 'storm.'  But no complaints because things could be worst.

Today's #ootd got me reliving my younger years with this teeny bopper skirt.  I knew it was short, but didn't realize how short it actually is.  Let's just say picking up anything past my waist is not an option.  Although my style ranges from edgy to playful, there's still some things I shy away from.  Wearing a skirt this short is definitely out of my comfort zone, that's why I went with sneakers (my fave) instead of a heeled shoe to keep my lady parts from drawing the wrong type of attention.  I paired the skirt with this moto jacket since it's still a tad breezy out.  And for good measure, I added this cute little neon clutch.  I dare you to try something different, something you've thought about wearing but were afraid to.  Go ahead you can do it.
