A happy coincidence...

Happy coincidence: when you fluke realize you have all these items that just match perfectly. THEN you pair them together, and bam! New favourite outfit.  That, my friends, is a happy coincidence.  And this is definitely a new favourite outfit.  

Dress as a shirt: Dollz & Dames
skirt: modcloth
belt: came with another dress

It occurs to me that both of my favourite, best match "shirts" for this skirt are, in fact, dresses. If you haven't thought about using a dress as a shirt, you definitely should. It's an easy, cheap way to create new outfits with old pieces, and switch up your go-to looks.  

I bought this skirt last year from modcloth when it was on sale.  I'd been eyeing the Essential Elegance skirts for a while, but they're pretty pricey for a skirt, so I had a hard time taking the plunge and ordering one. When this one came on sale, I figured it was a perfect chance to see if I really did like the style.  I instantly loved it, and was kicking myself for hesitating and not ordering the black, which was the one I originally wanted.  Well, I finally ordered the black.  I'm so looking forward to it, I've already started planning what I'll wear with it! 

In the end, sometimes being hesitant on buying an item pays off. Especially when you decide to purchase the colour you wouldn't normally buy, just because it's cheaper... because now I have a really fun blue skirt, that I normally wouldn't have chosen to buy.

  2. These really do look awesome together, Jana, and I love the dress-as-a-shirt thing! I also adore this skirt and I've been eyeing it in other colors for a long time. Your house is also the cutest!
