I gave myself 3chances to get comfortable in my AB Studio skirt.*
First up was a crop top combo inspired by that darn Trunk Club ig ad.
I almost felt like this could be who I am now. The skirt felt fairly comfortable. The whole look felt chic & fresh. I finished this day really looking forward to the challenge.
My second take was a little less successful. The pic really doesn’t do any favors either.
In theory I like this mix of business with super casual, but in execution I didn’t love it. Also, the skirt did not feel as comfortable this go round. I just kept feeling like it needed a little extra stretch through the hips.
Third time’s almost a charm. Again I almost felt like this is it, this is my style.
I love the combo. The pearl snap plaid with rolled up sleeves has that perfect dose of masculinity, but the skirt just doesn’t feel good on me. It was a hot day & the lining kept clinging inconveniently.
While this skirt just isn’t going to make the cut, I do think there are options available that would achieve the physical comfort I need to feel confident with my ootd choices.
I definitely want something that looks like a classic pencil skirt, but is made with a less restrictive lifestyle in mind. H&M & Old Navy have some great inexpensive options.
Perhaps after I finish up my Diary Challenges a little refresher shopping will be in order.
*Yep, I checked the tag finally.
