Shopping at home

Brown Twill Pencil Skirt / Plum faux leather jacket / White sweater from H&M / Black combat boots

I was bored the other day and went shopping in the spare closet. You know the one -- it's rarely opened, used to store the stuff that you don't really need/use but hold on to because you might need it someday. In my house, this closet holds clothes. And I found skirts! Specifically, this twill skirt that I've finally taken a liking to now that I value work clothes. The skirt (and every other skirt on the hanger) was my mom's from the 90's. 

Gotta say, it makes me feel kind of old sometimes that we're at a point in time where a decade that I grew up in has actually cycled back to become trendy again. But the benefit of being a mild packrat is that I don't have to buy anything to be on trend this season. Hello, long jackets with shoulder pads! Yes to midi skirts!

  12. I don't know whether to be happy or depressed that all the things that were cool when I was a kid are trendy again (I feel so old!)
    Then again, if I saved all that stuff like you did maybe I'd wear outfits that were on-trend and fabulous! I adore that skirt and I would have seriously thought you bought that skirt recently if you didn't say you found it in your closet.

  23. I definitely understand what you mean about feeling a bit old! I, myself, find myself more and more drawn to my mothers closet where she stores old clothes, because a lot of garments found in this closet are definitely trendy right now!
    I really like the outfit you are wearing & yesss for midi skirts! :D
