Digging in my Closet Day

OOTD Mon Jan 25 2010

Outfit Details:

cardigan - Banana Republic, skirt - Liquid, ruffle tee - Old Navy, tights - Walmart, shoes - Steve Madden

In an effort to reduce over-consumption, and shop more within my own closet, I decided to create a new feature on my website called "Digging in my Closet Day". The goal is to spend at least one day a week putting together an outfit around one item (or more) that has essentially been forgotten. Hopefully, it'll help me find some old favourites, and help me weed out what should be donated.

I've had this pink tweed skirt for at least 6 years. Same with the Banana Republic cardigan. The cardigan used to be a favourite item of mine. I just adore the pearl buttons, and the style of the cardigan gives it a great Mad Men vibe. I bought the pink skirt back when pink was one of the colours of the season. Since then, I've had a hard time wearing pink without feeling overly girly. When putting together this outfit, I decided to go with the girly factor, and went all out with mary-jane heels and patterned grey tights. I even added a thin headband before leaving the house!

i love it! i also have trouble wearing pink but i love it here with the red. i think the dark nail polish makes the look a little "harder," too--you've done such a good job!

This is a lovely outfit. It has a sweet, girly feel without being over the top.
