Full Circle

Shirt: Banana Republic | Skirt: Banana Republic | Shoes: Guess | Clutch: Thrifted, Plato's Closet (similar)

I remember when I was younger and hated polka dots. I thought they were old-fashioned. Of course, that was before I had lived long enough to actually see styles repeat themselves. Now I understand how thoughts of "I wore that?? What was I thinking!?" can easily turn into "Whatever happened to that skirt!? I would totally wear it now!" It's funny how things can turn full circle.

While it's good to purge your closet every now and then of things that are worn or never really fit your personal style, items you love that may have an "of-the-moment" characteristic but a timeless silhouette (like this skirt) are investment pieces worth keeping. You'll be ahead of the rest when the print or style comes around again.
