My mom used to tell me growing up: ‘everything always comes back’. I would laugh at her as she went through her closet pulling out jean jackets, flared jeans, and embroidery/ sequins galore. I would tell her: ‘none of that will ever be back in style’. And I’m sure my snobby teenage self said something along the lines of ‘burn it’, or ‘never be seen in public with me wearing it’. Well, Mom was right, as usual, most things in fashion do come back. Pretty soon I’ll be calling her up to dig out some cool vintage finds for me to steal.
After a recent all about denim post I was inspired to hit the mall and see what cute denim pieces I could find. I ended up with this adorable denim mini skirt from Topshop with floral embroidery on it. I felt very Brittney Spears the second I put it on, I obviously had to buy. The same day I found this bodysuit at Topshop and immediately imagined the two together. The embroidery on the top really compliments the detailing on the skirt. When I shop I always like to imagine what outfits I can make with the piece I’m buying. I feel it helps me eliminate the possibility of buying something and only wearing it once.
This skirt, for example, doesn’t solely look cute with this bodysuit. When I got home I trend it on with a couple of t-shirts and a cropped sweater I own. Now I know I’ll also be pulling this skirt out in the fall months!
