So I found this top at Target that I absolutely love. The only problem is that I don’t have a skirt to match it (I know, my life is sooo complicated). Jean shorts are fine, but it is already way too hot to wear anything but skirts! So, thanks to the 20-Minute Skirt tutorial over at Ruffles and Stuff (add that one to your reader; I swear that woman is a tutorial machine), I cranked out two (two!) skirts during naptime today — one in yellow linen, one in an old sheet.
I really like the yellow one and will wear it with other stuff, but the black and white one — I’m not so sure. For one thing, I don’t usually wear clothes that are quite that bold. For two, I’m worried that it’s just too much. For three, I’m worried that I look like an escaped inmate.
They are true down-and-dirty skirts — I think their combined value is like $7 — the seams aren’t finished, and I didn’t measure anything but the hem — so you won’t hurt my feelings if you tell me that I should burn one of them. But for heaven’s sake, don’t tell me that I should burn both of them. I do have a little pride, you know.
So? What’s the verdict?
