1) I didn’t notice the wrinkles on my skirt until I saw the photos.
2) I wore it in public–out for dinner and cocktails with a couple friends.
3) I was way too excited about this outfit to care. They add character, right?
In life, you pick and choose your battles. Don’t sweat the small stuff. I chose to take the high ground on this one. Skirt wins.
Or is the victory mine? I absolutely LOVED (with capital letters) this outfit. The skirt is sheer (with very faint vertical stripes) and to hide the lady parts, I wore my polka dotted shorts underneath. Most recently seen here (along with the striped cardigan). The hot pink leather belt (tied in the back) is a touch of flirty. The sequins on my top add sparkle. And folks, short, petite women can wear maxi length skirts. I felt 6 feet tall and glamorous walking in the evening sunset, with the skirt billowing in the wind. People were probably thinking I was a nut case because I had a Cheshire Cat grin on my face.
It’s these noone-else-would-care details, that bring me great joy.
What are the small details that make your heart skip a beat?
