A long time ago, I read that you shouldn’t wear clothing that comes back in style, if you wore it when it was originally in style. Personally I think that is ridiculous. Take the maxi skirt for example. I remember wearing them in the 1970’s. I loved them. Cooler than jeans, yet you’re covered up. They are comfortable on a hot day and comfortable on a spring evening when there is a nip in the air. Like now. There is quite a nip in the air. Yet, I’ve already made the switch to brighter colors and I simply can’t bring myself to put on winter clothes. This Lauren Conrad maxi skirt paired with a long sleeve t-shirt from Target is perfect.
I decided the perfect shoe would be these gray Franco Sarto flats. They go perfect with the maxi skirt and they are so comfortable.
So, what do you think about my original quote – about not wearing something that you originally wore when it was in style. Kind of hogwash, don’t you think? Though on further thought, I can think of somethings that it might apply to. Short shorts, for example. I used to wear the shortest of shorts and mini skirts too. Oh, and crop tops. I’m not saying someone else in their 50’s can’t wear those things, but for me, it’s not going to happen. Maxi skirts though, that’s going to happen!
