I'm not feeling this outfit. My love for this skirt is beyond words, but in all honesty, I would love it more if it weren't red. I just have such difficulty styling red with something other than grey or black. I tried today with just the chambray skirt, but it just didn't work. I added some tights, and my reindeer sweater, but again, it just didn't work. I threw on the striped shirt, and went: "good enough". While the guys all commented on the skirt (I have a feeling they liked it because it reminded them of their grandmother, or because it's red - that's a theory I want to test this week), I don't like settling for "good enough". I know pattern is the best way to incorporate red and another colour, but I'm certainly lacking it! I can feel my thrifting nerve starting to twitch, but also know I have difficulty thrifting pattern!
