Outfit Post: Laura Not-Ingalls Not-Wilder

This poor skirt.  It’s too froofy for work, too bulky for travel, and hard to match tops with.  It’s not worthy of a mere t-shirt, but it already has so much character that busier shirts don’t go well with it.  (I know, I know, my life is so hard.)  I’m determined to get it out of the closet a little more this year, though, so here’s Attempt #1 at a new outfit:

Top: Target
Skirt: Anthropologie (gift)
Belt: Romy
Sandals: Naturalizer, from Macy’s
Earrings: gift
Purse: Laga Handbags

The Western look went okay, but the skirt is meant to be worn on the hips, which meant I spent all morning tucking it back under the belt and making sure the top didn’t creep up in the meantime.  (SO HARD, YOU GUYS.)

New plan: develop outfits that don’t require hoisting the skirt up to unnatural heights.

  1. Does it have an elastic waist?
    Just wondering if you could pull it all the way up and wear it as a dress?
    Add in a little belt at the waist and it could make a really cute little summer dress.
    Cheers,
    Laura (also not Ingalls or Wilder)…well, maybe wilder than some!

  2. Ahh, I hate those outfits that look good for a picture but need constant fidgeting. You look good, for what it’s worth!
