i like the way you move

The best thing about being on a shopping diet is rediscovering items in your closet.
The worst thing is not being able to shop, obviously.
I bought this skirt from Benetton 5+ years ago and I probably haven't even worn it 5 times.
I don't know why something that moves so beautifully with the wind would not get more use.
Moral of the blog post...save yourself some money and find hidden treasures by shopping in your own closet :)

wearing: f21 top, united colors of benetton skirt, steve madden heels, thrifted necklace, mom's earrings
worn to: lunch at LE CHEVAL

  18. That's a great skirt. I'm currently going through the same process. I'm trying not to shop, and going back, looking over old clothes in my closet. It's great discovering items you forgot you had!

  29. Sometimes you got to stay out of the stores and rediscover what you have in your closet. And what a great discover with your floral skirt. You look lovely! You can also wear this skirt in the fall with tights and boots. So don’t stash it away for another 5 years…LOL

  37. I'm living by this advice right now. I've had to cut back and back and back but I am finding new ways to mix and match what I have. I love flowy skirts regardless of the length and you look lovely. Those shoes are beautiful.
