Are you a Louis or a Ren
Simplest outfit ever? Maybe. This skirt has come precariously close to Goodwill on more than one occasion, including today, but either my subconscious or my mother has whispered in my ear that I can make this skirt work.
You all know I like patterned clothing, but I definitely have struggled with this skirt. I've fought with matching it and not matching it, introducing other patterns and colours, and I don't know, nothing ever seems to work. Also, I have to wear it right at my waist but the skirt is pleated, which I think makes me look a little wider than normal.
BUT I AM IN THIS TO WIN THIS, as my best friend A. insists she says (doubt it), so I'm going to keep trying. Don't expect this skirt to be part of my 30 for 30, but do expect to see it after that and into the fall with tights. Anyone miss tights weather right now? Because I am. The thermometer topped out at 120 today in the sun and I just want to gag simply when I walk outside.
So you know what I'm doing? Traveling up to the mountains and going tubing with my friend S. We are assuming it will be very hot and the river will be very cold and that will make everything even Steven, right? Remember the Even Stevens Movie when the family went on a special island trip that was actually secretly a reality show that was half Hunger Games and half The Bachelorette? I need to find that movie because it was shamazing.
Ren would wear this skirt.
