We are in the midst of reorganizing our house - a huge project, which was oh so long due. Even though I'm feeling overwhelmed, I am also excited and looking forward to see all the newly organized corners. So far, we redecorated Anya's room, which was a priority, because you know - she's just not a kid any more, she is a teenager, and her space reflects it now. Besides, her friend is staying with us till the rest of the school year, because her family had to move a month before the school ended. So we wanted to make sure the girls are comfortable. We also converted our spare room into a study for me (I just call it "my room"), more on that later because right now it is still full of stuff which has to find its place either in our house, or in a new home. But the point is, we of course find things that were misplaced or just forgotten, including some items of clothing. Like this skirt.
I've made a decision to not purchase any new items for a while and play more with the clothing I have, so in that light I was curious about new ways to wear this striking and playful chevron skirt. You can see it in the posts Stripes, Meet Stripes and Hello, Ocean from the last year.
This time, I thought I'd wear this skirt (oh how beautifully it flows in breeze) with a chambray peplum top from the previous post. I added bead jewelry that I own for a while. The necklace is hand-made by one of my coworkers about 15 years ago. The bracelet is made of coral pieces and beads, and was found at a gift shop - a gift from my parents when they were visiting us. The purse is by Chico's, probably last year collection.
I had great fun creating this outfit, but when I looked back at the photos, I suddenly was not satisfied. A couple of days later, I like it again. Do you have such back and forth feelings about your creations? I know I do, and it is not only about outfits - it can be anything, really. Like it, hate it, like it, hate it, like it again... I would like to understand what it is about creative people that makes our emotions such a roller coaster at times. Any ideas?
Sending you lots of love, warmth and sunshine from the rainy Northwest! It's 87 F today! ;-)
