Playing Hooky

Sometimes when my outfit is cute and the workload is manageable, I like to wander outside of my office and act like a goof while my good friend and talented fashion editor, Karolyne Ellacott snaps pics of me. While this means sacrificing above average locations for convenience and time, it is a necessary thing I’ve come to terms with in order to show you my daily looks. This one, in particular, has been difficult to keep to myself. I recently threw caution to the wind and purchased this Marques’Almeida x Topshop skirt against my better judgment. I am a practical shopper. All of my purchases are budgeted for and I don’t like wasting funds on items that are sold at an insane markup purely for marketing/branding reasons. This is why I usually don’t fuck with brand collaborations. But… Honestly I  had this skirt saved on my computer for two months. Although it is a lot of $ for such a small amount of fabric, the denim felt sturdy and the cut of the garment is divine. I love how the hem flares ever so slightly at the bottom and how it sits on my hips. Every woman needs a denim skirt, especially one as cute as this blah blah blah… I’m so good at rationalizing impulse purchases to myself.
