This is a little bit different style than I'm used to sporting but I actually loved this outfit because...THE SKIRT. I mentioned in a previous post that I found this gorgeous 1970's skirt at Goodwill the other day. I was really back and forth on getting it; it's not super practical and I wasn't sure if it would be a good piece to take with me to NYC (two requirements when buying clothes right now) but it just struck such a chord with me I couldn't pass it up. I mean, it was only like $3.50 but that's a lot for me, ha. I know, I am cheap. I will admit it. I think why I love it so much is that it reminds me of a piece I used to have in my wardrobe that I loved TO DEATH. It was this little dress/shirt here from Forever21. I remember seeing this online and begging my parents to buy it for me because for me, if I had this I would make all the popular girls jealous at the time in high school. (Yeah, I know, really immature thinking. Thank goodness for growing up). My parents didn't want to get it for me because it was so short, but I told them I would make it work; so they let me buy it. I remember getting it and realizing they were right-- there was no way I could wear this dress anywhere without my bum showing, but I loved it so much that I found other ways to wear it. I got rid of the dress a few years back and kind of wish I'd kept it, just for sentimental reasons. It was one of the first items I bought when I was starting out in fashion that felt like 'me'
Well, now that I've bored you all with that blast from the past, I think I'll end the post here! Enough nostalgic rambling for the day. x
With much love, Lauren.
