Yet more new things! When I went shopping, my original idea had been to fill in the gaps in my existing wardrobe. And I think I did a pretty good job of that, but I still don't want to wear any of my old things yet.
Both the top & the skirt were super bargains at Old Navy. The denim mini was only $2! Denim mini skirts used to be the staples of my wardrobe. I haven't had one that fit in over a year, and now I'm not sure if they still have a place. But for $2, I think it's worth giving it a go around.
This blouse filled the void of button down, tuck-in-able tops. It's a very silky polyester material, which I'm not going to lie, I love. But I wasn't 100% sold on this top because I felt like the big floral made it look a little too much like pajamas. Go figure that when I opened this month's issue of Lucky there was a whole feature of how silk pajamas had been big on the runway and how we should all wear our pj-inspired pieces to work.
My mom had to laugh at my indecision over this top. It was only a few short years ago that I used to wear slips as dresses. Like, real, actual slips, not slip dresses. I would buy them for $2 at the thrift store and put them over shirts, over pants, on their own over tights. I'd like to think my personal style has evolved, for the better, over the years.
