Over the last few years of blogging I've learned a lot of things that have helped me cultivate my style and my wardrobe. I love a good "work horse" piece like this skirt.
My mom made me this skirt years ago and it never disappoints me. It has fit through various stages of life (is it a miracle fabric? I need more skirts out of this fabric!), it's perfect for dressing up or dressing down and it's the perfect length. I seriously can't get enough of it.
I'm really starting to learn to invest in pieces that will be work horses like this skirt and maybe go a little bit cheaper on trendy items that may be fun now, but won't be worth the money later.
I've learned a lot about investing in great pieces from Cori of Corilynn and Fran of Franish. Both of these ladies have killer style and aren't a hundred feet tall and 60 pounds, which is so refreshing! I love how Cori dresses for her petite frame (and her clothing line is to. die. for.) Fran has developed a wardrobe that works for her body. She doesn't buy things that don't work for her, which I love because I couldn't even count the number of things in my closet that I've tried on 100 times just to throw back on the floor because they just aren't right.
I love the fashion blogging world because of the lessons I've learned on how to create a wardrobe that I love.
