Midi + Camo

The midi skirt – it can be a friend or it can be a foe. I’ve gotta say, finding the perfect one that doesn’t make you look frumpy is a hard feat. I had been on the search for one for far too long, until I came across this beauty from H&M. The trick is to size down in order to cinch your waist in enough to balance out the volume of the skirt. Also where it high on your waist in order to create the illusion of an hour glass figure (even if you don’t have one) and voila! It’s all about proportions, my friends!

Black and Bloom

Don’t you hate when you envision and outfit and you don’t execute it quite as spectacularly as you had hoped to? That’s the worst. This outfit is a great example of that scenario.

Remember this Currently Craving post? Well I was attempting (operative word) to bring you an outfit where you can pull inspiration from but it didn’t come out quite as fashion forward as I would have liked it to be. The main point I was trying to get across is how florals can be worn during Fall. See how the color black anchors the florals and doesn’t make it look too spring-y? This skirt is the perfect example of a piece that is trans-seasonal, i.e. can be worn all year long. With some minor accessory changes it can easily be transitioned from fall, to spring, and every season in-between!

When I was younger, my brother had this theory that you must wear new items of clothing immediately. He would say, “You never know when you’re going to die, so you might as well wear it right away.” I always thought that was a silly motto. I didn’t like wearing all my brand spankin’ new pieces all at once because I wanted to prolong that amazing feeling you got when you wore a fresh item of clothing. I liked mixing newer items with wardrobe favorites - the perfect way to extend that ‘special’ feeling of a new outfit. Decades later I still abide by this rule. Well, that is until yesterday. Mind you, I didn’t purchase this entire outfit on the same day or even the same weekend. I was waiting/searching for perfect complementary pieces already stocked in my wardrobe when I stumbled across this color combo yesterday and couldn’t resist paring it together. I think this is the perfect transition outfit - Fall colors with some summer staples and silhouettes.

Thank You

First off I want to thank everyone for all their support on yesterdays post. I was overwhelmed (in the best way possible) with the encouragement and similar stories that readers left via comments and tweets. It’s comforting to know that my point of view, my style and my rants are appreciated and valued. It’s also nice to know that I’m not the only one with an off day (or three)! Seriously, bloggers make it look easy.
