Skirt: Ananya on Etsy

I purchased this skirt off etsy, after discovering A Hat & White Gloves wearing it. I instantly fell in love with the skirt and how Natalie styled it, so it soon became mine. Then, it turned cold, and I turned to tights instead of wearing this awesome skirt sooner.
Well, today I said “screw it” and wore pastels. I don’t care. I don’t conform (or something like that). Who says fall has to be all about oranges, reds and purples? Why can’t I wear pastels and still celebrate fall? (Not to mention it’s about 75 degrees today, so it’s like summer all over again.)
At the urging of Fashion Butter, I’ve been wearing more body-hugging clothes. I’m still not totally comfortable in them, but I’m learning to love them. Because I’m going out of my way to wear things I usually wouldn’t, I’m also trying to force myself to wear some of the button up shirts I own. You know the ones I’m talking about – we all have them. They’re the shirts you buy when you get your first “real” job, but haven’t quite figured out the dress code yet, and think you’ll need to wear a collared shirt everyday. Well, I have quite a few of those shirts hanging in my closet that I rarely wear. So, for the first time in a while, I forced myself to wear one. Of course, I did it in typical Suze fashion: polka dotted skirt and striped shirt.
Leave it to me to make sure I don’t match 🙂
I was also inspired by this post on Dramatis Personae. I often find myself wearing (and buying) items of similar shades, patterns and cuts. I tend to shy away from anything black or grey (I’m almost always in some overwhelming color), I also tend to run toward similar silhouettes, so I think some jumping around will do me well.
