I don't know about you, but I am starting to wish it was spring already. The sun was out this morning, and I immediately felt like wearing something colourful. I bought this skirt at a fleamarket in Finland as a part of my "the-hell-with-TGAAD"-phase. I felt guilty about buying this particular skirt because a week later I thought that I probably wouldn't wear it, and it would become one of those quick-fix purchases that end up at the back of my wardrobe. Things just fell into place today, and right now I feel like the skirt was a great buy. Go figure!
There is a lot I have to learn about my patterns of wearing clothes. I still don't know why I end up buying certain things and then not wear them, or how other purchases become favourites for years to come. I bought this print sweater at an H&M sale maybe 3 or 4 years ago, without even trying it on, and it has become one of my all-time favourite sweaters. Around the same time I browsed through a Benetton sample sale and bought three long, gray cardigans, and this one I am wearing today is one of those. I have worn all three cardigans to the point where I am starting to worry about what to do when they fall apart. And then the ankle boots - they fall under the same category of instant successes.
