Lately, I've been wearing a lot of skirts & dresses. I have a bunch in my closet, but they didn't get worn much last year. Then, when I was buying some socks, I grabbed a pair of knee-highs by mistake. I didn't think I'd like them.... boy, was I ever wrong! Soon, I had many more pairs of knee-high socks & a couple pairs of thigh-high ones too. I wear them all. the. time. I love them over tights: plain socks over patterned tights, patterned socks over plain tights, or plain socks & tights with a patterned skirt.
Needless to say, I've been having some fun trying out different combinations & wearing all my skirts & dresses that have been neglected. Here's a sample of a few looks from February:
One thing this photo montage revealed to me is that I don't wear enough colour! Of course, everything is a bit more muted than in real life - that plaid skirt is a pretty purple & those teal tights are brighter than they look in the 3rd photo. Plus, my coat is bright orange so I tend to keep things more neutral underneath.
Anyway, I thought a challenge was in order. Why not wear a skirt (or dress) every day for an entire month?
I've already been doing so for pretty much 2 months already, except I usually stick to track pants when I'm just bumming around the apartment, looking for a job. I do find I'm more productive if I actually get dressed though... so, win-win! I get to wear all my skirts more often & end up working harder & completing a fun challenge at the same time!
I'll post updates on my challenge weekly, with photos of each outfit (I just have to take photos of the first 4... I wrote down what I wore but didn't feel like breaking out my tripod). For now, here's what I'm wearing today: I soon changed my shirt & socks for our meeting at the bank, but this is what I started out in. I love my thigh-high socks!
