I am a pretty serious planner. I am a perfectionist, Type A, Virgo/Libra cusp - so I make lists. The day that Kendi announced this round of the 30for30, I started a list of what items I wanted to remix, then a series of sub-lists to plan out the different outfits I could make with each piece. Then I started making polyvore sets of all the possible remixes, so I could easily visualize all my options. This is how much I plan just to put on clothes.
Which is why it's shocking that this outfit came together totally spontaneously, and I absolutely love it. I've grown a little weary of wearing pants every day since we've gotten to Morocco, so I thought a lazy Saturday at home would be a great time to break out something a little more 'immodest.' This skirt was a late addition to my 30 (hello, #28!), from the same surprise trip to Zara that resulted in my new jacket, so I hadn't planned any outfits around it yet. I wanted to stick with a pretty low-key, earthy color palette to keep the spotlight on the rusty orange, and topped it off with a wider belt 'borrowed' from Chris and my vintage necklace from the queen of earth-tones herself, Christina. It felt great to get a little more 'dressed up,' even if only for eating grilled cheese and catching up on Gossip Girl.
And seriously, how cute are those scalloped pockets??
