You know those items in your closet that still fit you but you kind of don't like them anymore? You know, the ones that you kind of force yourself to wear because they are still in good condition? Well, this skirt is one of those pieces for me.

I actually really like this polka dot skirt, but I find it to be way too short. I tried to make it work today by adding tights, but I still think I'm forcing myself to wear it (instead of wanting to wear it). Sigh, it is items like these that make my closet so cluttered! Hahaha, but even though my closet is breaking apart, i still never seem to give anything away :)

Does this happen to you? What do you do with these items, keep wearing them or give them away?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this skirt:

  1. You have the funnest collection of jewelry, I think~ seriously, those pearl accessories, namely that ring and those bracelets, are just too precious! I like how the circle shape of the pearls mimic the circles in your skirt, too! :D Plus, I think that skirt totally fits you for not fitting you. :)

  2. you made it work well. i like that blue, & all those pretty pearls.  i donate things i don't like or don't wear because they are uncomfortable.

  3. So proud of you that you made it work with tights. I have lots of clothes that i consider short on me and also keep them like you do. Since i live in a tropical country, i dont have the guts to wear it with tights. But Air conditioners paired with rainy weather make it too cold. So perhaps i should adopt your idea and wear with tights too.

  4. I went through my closet before I moved and got rid of most of my short skirts. Like you I didn't like how short they were. If I had the guts to wear tights in 80 degree weather I would. To me that's hot! LOL

  9. It's cute this way for sure. I usually force myself to find ways to wear it and then if I really can't sometimes it goes in the goodwill pile. once I let my hubby select which items he didn't like anymore. Sometimes I'll "refashion" an item.
