One Circle Skirt Seven Ways
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 first picture in this post, and here above are two times where I styled it almost the same, but with a different hat and shoe choice.
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?

Your skirt is both lovely and versatile. I can see why you wear it so much. I recently cut out a flared four-gore skirt for spring in a tan twill inspired by how nice yours looks.
My workhorses are also my full skirts, especially my black gathered midi skirt, and I have two plain black dresses with full skirts that I wear all the time. I think the other most versatile garments in my wardrobe are my white button-up shirts, which (like your skirt) are perfect for every occasion, since they can be dressed up or down. More and more I find myself appreciating clothes that can be casual or formal depending on shoe and accessory choice. They simplify getting dressed and make me feel more unified.

Your new four-gore skirt sounds like it will be a great addition to your wardrobe- I hope you get as much use out of it as I have with mine. And, I love your black skirts and dresses- they are what inspired me to finally make my black circle skirt- as I saw you wearing yours so much!
