Have I mentioned that I am SO not a detail person? Have I mentioned that I sometimes get distracted and forget things?
Well if I have not mentioned that, I ought to have.
Cause I found something in my closet this week. Something, which while not exactly like the neutral skirt I am looking for, is a close enough approximation to make me uncomfortable when I found it at the back of the closet...
Oh you remember my neutral skirt desire, the one that had me and poor GetFresh searching the web randomly for THE skirt?
You know, like the one in M's Polyvore set:
And this one:
Can I be the only one who wants a tulle skirt? Is 50 too old for tulle? For God's sake, say no, I am just the RIGHT age, because I am THISCLOSETO to buying a tulle skirt...
But I digress (just know that we will soon be coming back to the tulle skirt on some other day...). So I was in the backroom cleaning out a closet and I find this lovely golden silk skirt from Nougat London, bought 3 summers ago, that I forgot I had.
|don't you hate how they hang skirts at the cleaners?|
In my defense, it IS a bit tight, there is a small water stain on the bottom and it was jammed into the back of the closet, but if tinkered with, it can be worn. So I sent it off to the cleaners, who spruced it up and have put together this outfit, a la Miss M, along with a few other ideas. What do you think? And am I the only one who misplaces clothing? I honestly do NOT have a huge wardrobe - I think I thought I had given this away at some point... That is my story and I am sticking to it...
|nougat london skirt (old) nine west nude pumps, gold clutch from winners, jcrew tissue tee|
and changing out the shoes:
|donald pliner platinum flats (old)|
and bag and sandals:
|Mr. Seymour sandals (old) and BR shell clutch from 2012|
Maybe adding my new herringbone schoolboy blazer and some pearls?
Would love any other styling ideas besides this neutral look!
So while it is not exactly like what I am looking for, will suck it up with some spanx until the real thing comes along! And please, no one tell GetFresh. Because pretty soon she is going to need to help me find a tulle skirt....
So happiest of Wednesdays and stay safe out there!
