Throwback… Tuesday?

Blouse (similar and no sleeves) and Necklace - JCrew Factory / Skirt (similar) - LOFT / Flats - Tory Burch / Bracelet - Michael Kors

I put this outfit on last week and thought, "Hmmm. This looks familiar."

Oh right. Because last time I wore this skirt on the blog, it was basically in the exact same way. After I wore the skirt once or twice way back in 2012, I decided to throw it in the wash (whyyyyyy? it's a skirt that barely touches my body!) and when I pulled it out the hem had come completely undone. Noooooooooo!! I'm fairly competent at sewing, but hemming something with pleats sounded scary, so I put it in a pile to take to get repaired.

Ummmm, and three years later, it's finally back! #procrastinator

Even though it's summer, I've been rocking a lot of long sleeves lately for work. First because my office is always cold, but second because when I take the train to work it's somehow even colder. I once got a cold in the middle of summer after getting totally soaked walking to the station and then having to sit in that ice box for an hour. Brrrrr. So, in conclusion, lots of long sleeves with skirts, because somehow that feels a lot more summer-y than short sleeves with pants. And long sleeves with shorts for the weekend because my neighborhood in Chicago never quite gets the summer memo (#coolerbythelake), and long sleeves and shorts make me feel cool.

If you haven't taken my reader survey and entered to win a $50 gift card to LOFT yet, you have until Friday - you can enter here.
