You know you have way too many clothes when you have things in your closet that haven't seen the light of day for over a year and still have tags attached. Sometimes (as is today's case) they are articles of clothing that you love, but yet somehow haven't made it into your regular wardrobe rotation. I feel like my closet has become a gigantic maw, bursting at the seams, but I'm always willing to cram one more piece of clothing inside of its gaping jaws. This is especially true if the article of clothing has one or all of the following: Stripes, polka dots or cute critters/animals. It's easy to see how things pass by the radar and go unnoticed and unworn for extended periods of time.
Well, I love the J. Crew painted rope skirt and I should wear it more often. I initially loved it because of the relatively thick, sumptuous silk fabric. Oh... and did I mention the stripes? Can't get enough of those. When I saw how well this skirt looked with this floral top from Forever 21 I knew it was time to dust it off and take it out for a spin. I'm glad I finally got around to wearing it.
