It’s a special moment to encounter from time to time when you try something on and feel totally yourself. It’s when you’re not trying to express your clothing through your being, but the clothes themselves accentuate who you are as a person. Too deep? Maybe. But Hell, I love this outfit and I feel so myself. How great would it be if we could wake up everyday and feel beautiful and totally ourselves. Sometimes when I wear certain items I feel like a poser, for lack of a better word. But when I throw on a maxi skirt, boots, and a floppy sunhat and I feel very much like Karen. A good feeling indeed.
I bought this lovely long skirt at a thrift shop for $4. It has black buttons sewn along the back side with a button and fabric clasp in the front to give the skirt an optional draped look. The floral pasiley-like design and lace trim makes the piece super feminine and dainty.
The skirt is pieced together with ample material, so it’s extremely comfortable and whirly when I walk. The aesthetic movement as I wander about, combined with comfort and effortlessness are a few reasons why I love wearing maxi skirts like this so much.
My crop top is store bought by American Apparel, whom as a manufacturer is working on being more and more eco-friendly, which I respect!

I love wearing ethically sourced clothing; it’s a small thing I can support and emphasize through my wardrobe that can make a greater impact.
