You know those weeks where you seem to be busy doing everything, but at the end of it, you seem to have done nothing? Yep, that was last week. So, here I am again- because that is kind of ironic that in my last post I said that I plan to keep on blogging. . . and then I just kind of vanished!
I have been thinking lately about wardrobe basics, and pieces that go with everything. I need a few more of them in my wardrobe because, I am not kidding, I spent about half an hour getting dressed on Sunday. That may be a bit obsessive, but I think it was because everything I tried on didn’t really go with anything else. There were other factors involved. . . but I started thinking about my tan circle skirt and how I have worn it so much already, since making it in June. I didn’t realize that it has made it onto the blog six times already! It’s the same thing with my black circle skirt (which is what I ended up wearing on Sunday). Those two skirts really are the workhorses of my wardrobe at the moment.
So today, here is one circle skirt seven ways!
Here is the first time I wore it, for my participation in #thevintagefashionchallenge prompt of a film inspired look. Little did I know then that this circle skirt was going to be my best sewing project of the year!
The skirt was the best thing to wear on holidays, as the wrinkles came out nicely- and I only had to pack several different tops and accessories!
One of my favourite outfits of the year, with a bit of a modern vintage mix. Also I just love combining navy and brown.
Not my favourite outfit– I liked it better when I was wearing it, than when I saw the pictures. The black opaque tights look too heavy to me- I should have worn sheer black pantyhose instead. Also- my hair was doing a thing. . .
Here’s how I wore it a few weeks ago, for a day spent at home. I love how the skirt can go from dressy to casual with different top and accessories choices.
Hmm. . . I seem to be wearing a lot of black and white with this skirt- maybe I should see about trying to pair it with some colour!
Do you have any garments that you wear all the time because they are easy to wear and go with everything? What are your wardrobe staples?
