Skirt: Green from Macys; Shirt: Old Navy; Shoes: Steve Madden; Belt: Target; Earings: Vintage; Bracelets: Various: Bead Ring: Made my Me; Vintage Spoon Ring; Sunglasses: Tory Burch; Purse: Gucci
Woke up this morning and wasn't ready to start the day.  So I squished my toes against my hubby's, stayed in bed, and battled the clock.  Time won, it always does.  Feeling defeated, I wiggled my toosh out of bed, and literally sat in my closet, for like an hour.  Ever do this?  You know - a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.   So I pondered.  I rummaged.  Threw something on.  Fiddled with it.  Threw something off.  And continued to battle the clock.  Frustrated, I looked in the very back of my closet, under a pile clothes, and pulled out this old skirt I've owned since my high school days.  I swear, she whispered, "Wear me, just like you used to on those hot summer days.  You loved me so much.  But you moved on to those skanky minis and those stiff high-waisted pencils."  I told my boho skirt that she was being jealous, but, agreed to old times.  I'd simply update her to something still laid back, just more pulled together.  It's great when you can find something old just lying around and reinvent it in a way you never thought.  Pulled it up to my waist, cinched it with a belt, threw on some college heels and walked out the door.  And honestly, after all that deliberation, I feel pretty good about it.  So with that, I stick my nose at the clock and claim my victory.

great outfit... it's all great from the shoes to the sunglasses.

I wish my clothes would talk to me, but I think all they'd say is "quit ignoring us for your yoga pants"

I'm wearing so much spandex right now it's embarrassing.

Such a great chic outfit. You look like a model in these pictures (in all of your photos really).

I waste so much time in the morning staring at my closet not knowing what to wear. :)

You pulled off that skirt so nicely! I agree, when you find something that you can reinvent it's a wonderful feeling :)

oh i know exactly what you're talking about! my closet is so full that i have trouble taking clothes out and putting clothes back, but i still cannot find the right clothes to put on some days!

i, too, love digging into the deepest recesses of my closet and finding a gem that i haven't worn for years, but am able to once again (:

Closet full of closet, and nothing to wear is the story of my life! ... Loved the outfit, for a hard to dress day, you did a great job! I usually end up wearing black pants and white tee with flats! ... Loved the bag, kinda jealous!

It is so true! So many clothes and nothing to wear... Isn't that always the case when you don't have time to waste?
