Peaceful green

Remember this skirt? I finally got bored with it (it's a bit too large these days, and there are only so many ways one can wear a green asymmetrical skirt), so I tried for weeks—months—to sell it on eBay without any takers. Normally, at this point, I'd send it off to the thrift store, but I've been on a budgeting, waste-nothing, buy-nothing kick, so I decided to see if there was any way I could infuse new life into it.

I have worn this skirt one more way (you can see why I might be getting tired of it!) and that's with this knotted bolero sweater. Since I distinctly remember the last outfit, I couldn't possibly wear it again with the same brown tank top, so I thought I'd resurrect the skirt's tried and true role as a dress.

This time. I safety-pinned it to my bra, since as its elastic slowly dies, it becomes much less interested in holding itself up. and tied the sweater extra-tightly to provide a little definition to the silhouette. I added a green jewelry set and some unobtrusive brown boots, and tada! One more look for the green skirt that I just can't let go.

I think this might be my favorite look for this skirt yet—at least, it was the first one I can remember getting a compliment. My coworker said, with its algae-esque shades and ripply shapes, it reminded him of a peaceful pond in a forest.
