American Apparel gingham full woven skirt and sleeveless turtleneck crop top, Dr. Martens 1460 bootsAmerican Apparel gingham full woven skirt and sleeveless turtleneck crop top, Dr. Martens 1460 bootsAmerican Apparel gingham full woven skirt and sleeveless turtleneck crop top, Dr. Martens 1460 bootsI’ve never been a huge gingham fan but when this skirt came in from American Apparel a couple months back, I saw instant potential. To be honest, it’s something I have never thought of purchasing in the past but I’m finding it’s so in line with my personal style.

Speaking of which, I feel like my blog is finally properly reflecting what I define as my style, or more so, I’m finding where I fit into fashion (or where fashion fits in terms of me?). Okay, that introspective question felt a little too art school. Moving on….I feel my style is stabilizing and it’s really comforting. I used to define my scattered interests as ‘eclectic’ but it was really all just a self-exploration stage. Nice to feel like I’m settling down :)

Embarrassing fact of the day: This skirt fits my waist perfectly, which is the good part. The bad part is that it can’t even go anywhere near going over my thighs, so it has to be put on over my shoulders. It needs a zipper! Haha.

Wearing: American Apparel Gingham Full Woven Skirt in white/fuchsia (c/o) and black Sleeveless Turtleneck Crop Top, black Dr. Martens 1460 boots.

Haha, thanks! I’m actually usually not a fan of the combo (reminds me of my ugly homecoming dresses…), but it was good enough for me today :)
