Oh, hey striped skirt. It’s been a while.
In my house, I have a bit of a reputation of being anti-clutter–several times per year, I get into “a mood,” and I purge items from my closet, the attic, even the filing cabinet. We don’t have much storage in our current house, so this ritual is a means of survival. So when an item of clothing such as this skirt remains in my closet for years, there must be something special about it. In this case, I just think that a striped pencil skirt is a classic–it will never go out of style, so I keep hanging onto it. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it’s quite stretchy, which has made it quite forgiving of all my weight fluctuations over the past few years.
I brought it out today for the first day of class…on which I have no classes. I am “
advanced” old enough that I am done with taking classes for my PhDizzle–it’s just research from here on out. No matter how old I get though, I still get a wee bit excited when selecting my outfit for the first day of school 🙂
