Winter has been brutal this year, even in states that rarely receive a snowflake. Although the weather has been extremely cold for the past week or two, I shall not let that stop me for trying to look my best every day! My highlight outfit for this week is definitely my black and white skirt with my black thrifted sweater. This black and white skirt is actually a dress that I have had since I was 6 or 7 years old! Once I went through my awkward growth spurt stage in my tween years, I never thought it would appropriately fit me. Recently, I found the skirt in the back of my closet and decided to try it on for old time sake. And shockingly, it hit just above my knee, which is appropriate length from my perspective. I added a pair of opaque tights and my Rue 21 olive jacket.
Now, there’s a moral to the story. Don’t throw away or give up on clothing items that you may not like at the time or cannot fit into. You may change your perspective later in the future or your body may physically change. Also, push your creative buttons! If your perspective does not change, make a DIY project out it by altering the clothing item into something that you find unique and interesting.
