If I hadn’t made me, I would’ve been made somehow

This shirt has been sitting in my closet for months now. I kept telling myself that I was waiting for a special event to wear it. But this morning I realized I was breaking one of my few style rules, which is to not wait to wear something I love. Clothes should be worn and enjoyed, not relegated to your closet to wait for their moment to shine. So I threw it on, pinned the top for modesty’s sake (although, considering how dateless I’ve been lately, maybe I shouldn’t have), and added some casual jeans and sandals.

    I love this shirt! I am seriously considering one very similar to it from Mikkat Market. Can we be twinsies? :)

    I never wait to wear clothes. I just don’t have the patience. Love the top and of course the sandals.

    I always used to do that…wait and ‘save’ something to wear later…I only just recently decided not to, and it feels so good. I love the top on you – mamas got nice earrings, too! On another note…that painting behind you is amazeballs!

    I very much agree with that mantra…wear what you own, no matter what! =) I used to own so many items that I would only “save” for certain occasions and ever since I started to explore on my own…I did away with that concept and wear everything! =) just not all at once…lol

    i think you are right, when you get something new, you should wear it as soon and as often as possible!

  • xs August 16, 2012, 12:01 am

    right you are. we should enjoy our clothes, afterall that’s what they’re for! thanks for reminding us all with your great outfit!

    Well, I’m glad that you were able to take this beautiful top out to wear. It’s very feminine and looks lovely on you! I decided to just create a place to wear my items … even if it’s to go to the grocer, haha! Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t wear most of them if I waited. Today, I wore “the good jewellery,” everyone kept asking me, “wow, where are you going Miss?” :-)
