The May challenge by Everybody, Everywear is floral. That turned out to be a tough one for me. I’ve never been anti-floral. In fact, I love the real thing. So I was really surprised when I went to my closet to choose a floral piece and found next to nothing.
I have a black and white floral skirt, but it didn’t seem very cheery. Isn’t floral supposed to be upbeat? Then a came across this skirt. I picked this up at a clothing exchange a few years ago and it’s usually a winter skirt. I wear it with tights and a sweater.
Top: Old Navy
Shoes: Nine West via thrifted
I paired the skirt with stilettos (which by the way aren’t good for walking in the grass—unless you’re trying to aerate it). I added a recycled leather cuff for a bit of baddassery. This ain’t no garden party floral! Best of all, this entire outfit cost $40. You can bet your wild roses I’ll be wearing it again.
