Why do some items in our wardrobe arsenal end up with truly serious staying power…while others fall out of favour after only a season or two?? I’m pretty sure we all have experience with both – those special pieces that we adore and continue to reach for year after year; and those that have us super excited when we first bring them home, only to have our interest fizzle to “meh” after merely a single wear.
While I can’t say I have the answer to this closet conundrum, I can tell you that my plaid pencil skirt definitely falls into the former category, dear readers!! Even though it’s close to 15 years old now, in all that time I’ve never once been tempted to give it away. Mustard yellow has been on my fashion radar since Day One (even back when it wasn’t as trendy as it’s recently been) and I’ve always been a sucker for unusual finishing details, too…check out that cool yoke and the way the belt loops are set low on the waistline. Plus it’s plaid – which always makes for major bonus points with me!! 😍
My black velvet hoodie, on the other hand, is a much more recent purchase. If you’re at all close to being a regular visitor here (and of course I hope you are!) then you’ve certainly figured out that I’m not the biggest fan of the “athleisure” look; in fact, I’m kinda convinced that one of the reasons I don’t work out – like, ever! – is because I dislike athletic shoes so much!! But a cute cropped hoodie with checkered-flag trim down the sleeves?? Don’t mind if I do!!
Robin and I were on our way to our favourite Indian restaurant for lunch this afternoon; and since channa paneer (chickpeas and cheese in a spicy sauce…yum!) always puts me in danger of overeating, maybe I should reconsider my non-existent exercise routine. Anyone know of a workout you can do in heels?! 😉
