Today’s post is another outfit from the Unposted Photos archive. I wore this more than two years ago at my previous job. I have to say, I wasn’t crazy about the pairing of the color-blocked top with this ruffled skirt. Actually, I’ve worn the skirt a couple of times since and find it challenging to find any top I like with it. Untucked tops look bulky due to the rows of ruffles, and I usually only tuck in button-up blouses, which simply wouldn’t go with this skirt. I’m still searching. Someday I will stumble upon the perfect combination, then wonder why I never thought to try that before!
Skirts and tops with this ruffled treatment seemed to become super popular a year or two back – everyone had them, and now I see no one wearing them. I’m actually glad – it’s nice to give a occasional nod toward current fashions, but I’m always happiest when I’m more unique. The tricky part is maintaining a style that is timelessly individual without just looking behind the times. What are your thoughts on walking the line between “fashionable” and “unique”?
