Let us take a break from the new and admire the old. I have so many favorite pieces in my closet. Dresses are my everyday attire. I only own three pairs of jeans. Seven, if you count colors. I own one pair of capris and absolutely no shorts. I just feel more feminine in a skirt.
I wanted to share some older pieces with you guys.
This is one of my top ten favorite dresses in my closet. I reach for it time and time again. It is from Anthropologie. It is from last summer. It is called Flared Caraz Dress. It has the most beautiful colors and pattern. And it also has a small layer of tulle. You cannot see the tulle, but I know it it there. Which makes me feel secretly more girly. The necklace was gifted to me by Simply Livly on Etsy.
This skirt is at least eight years old. I bought it from Anthropologie before my son turned two and now he is ten. I weighed forty five pounds more then than I do now. The tag is missing from the skirt. So, I do not know what size this is. I thought if I belted it, I could get away with wearing it. I am not so sure, in retrospect, that it worked.
But I wanted to wear it, so I did. I paired it with another older Anthropologie shirt. I think this one is five years old. It is white eyelet. It, too, was large. When I was heavier, I would wear it untucked over jeans. Now, I just tuck it in.
And this dress has history. I once had a friend who had a dress just like this one. It was the only time I have ever copied a friend. I loved it so much on her. She has since gotten rid of hers. But I still love mine. It was from Kohls on sale for $17 six years ago. I paired it with some Anthropologie wedges and my Simply Livly turquoise necklace.
Do any of you keep your clothes forever? I do, if I truly love the piece. What is your favorite “oldie” from your closet? Mine is… Hmmm… I can’t decide.
