3x17 SOME CLOTHES YOU HAVE TO GROW INTO

capsule wardrobe outfit

I feel like such a girl, a lady, whenever I wear this skirt. I bought it in the summer sales last year, just a couple hours after my flight landed in Bratislava. I don't even know what I liked so much about it in the first place - it wasn't exactly my style, it was a little too fancy for my super casual summer wardrobe. Yet, out of all the things I tried on that afternoon, this was the piece I decided had to come home with me. I didn't try lots of things on, only five or six pieces perhaps, but I told myself, whatever happens, I can only buy one. That was right around the time I decided to change my shopping behaviours and be more intentional with my purchases. The humble beginnings of my minimalist journey.

So I bought it. This beautiful, pleated midi skirt that I had yet to figure out how to wear. (And that is, apparently, a blogger favourite, or so I keep reading.) And if I'm being completely honest, in the coming months, whenever I saw it hanging in the wardrobe, I questioned my decision. It was far from the most worn piece. Did I make the right choice in getting it? Was my first intentional purchase a wrong one?

As winter turned into spring it slowly became clear that this, now is the time for this skirt to finally shine. It's the kind of piece that makes you feel nice and light again, after the chunky layers of comfy sweaters of winter. It's a skirt for brunches or afternoon teas. And I love wearing it now, because I love how it makes me feel. Feminine, and sophisticated. Grown up and like I know what to do in this world. It may not be the star of my closet, but it's sure earned its place there.

And like I said in my very first spring outfit post - the first time I showed you this skirt - I just want to look nice sometimes. So that's what I'm gonna do.

Do you have anything in your wardrobe you had to "grow into"? Something that makes you feel great when you wear it?


P.S. I'm sorry about the photos, we took them with the last of the evening sun and I don't exactly love how they turned out. I did love the outfit which is why I thought it'd be a shame not to share it, despite the photos' shortcomings.

  2. Oh thank you, KD! I do try to make it a bit more interesting so that it's not just me standing awkwardly on the street (or in the park) attempting to put a photogenic expression on my face! :)
