I’ve been getting a lot of wear out of an old floral skirt I’ve had for years. I would have told you it was about five years old, but a woman spotted me wearing it and exclaimed “I have the same skirt! Ann Taylor, 2004!” So there you go. She said it with conviction, and I’m inclined to believe her.
I pair it with stripes a lot lately — a look that I’ll admit I shamelessly based on a J.Crew window display. That’s probably a lame thing to admit (aren’t bloggers supposed to perpetuate the idea that we pluck our ideas out of the ether?), but a good idea is a good idea no matter the origin. Plus I crazy it up a little by adding polka dots. Or big flowery poof things. And plastic-framed glasses, because I am a typical blogger after all.
Below is a pretty fantastic substitute for my floral skirt. I even picked one up for myself because it’s on sale, and I figured I could use another flowery option to get me through the next eight years.
