I don't often wear skirts, let alone long pink skirts. As I had to make a major clean in my closet recently, I asked myself if I wanted to keep this piece, and I figured that I would definitely miss it if I threw it away or sold it, even though I don't wear it much.

I guess that even though I'd love to have a reduced wardrobe made entirely of basics, you need to keep some more extravagant clothes that you'll wear when you feel uninspired and need something to give a little boost to your daily style.

That's why I also kept white high waisted jeans, purple high heels and a red dress that makes me look like the emoji dancing lady. I figured I'll always find way to wear them, just like I wore this Gestuz skirt the other day when I walked in Le Palais Royal with my friend Thomas who was visiting me in Paris.

Now the key to pulling off this kind of piece (for me anyway, as I know some girls who would look great with over the top accessories !) is to tone it down, hence the basic white tee and sandals, and the Céline bag.

To be honest, I'm not sure I'll wear a great deal out of this skirt, after all, it's such a statement piece there are not twenty different ways to style it, but I think it looks good in my closet among my fifty jeans and ten black sweaters.

Do you like it, and think I should keep it ?

Je ne porte que rarement des jupes, donc ne parlons même pas des jupes longes et roses. Comme j'ai dû trier tous mes vêtements récemment, je me suis demandé si je devais garder cette jupe, et je me suis dit qu'en fait elle me manquerait si je la vendais, même si je ne la porte pas tant que ça.

Même si j'adorerais avoir une garde-robe faite uniquement de basiques, avoir quand même quelques vêtements un peu plus extravagants n'est pas si mal, pour ces jours sans inspiration où mon style a besoin d'un boost.

C'est pourquoi j'ai aussi gardé un jean patte d'eph' blanc, des talons violets et une robe rouge qui me fait ressembler à l'emoji de la femme qui danse. Après tout, je trouverai toujours un moyen ou un moment pour les porter, comme lorsque j'ai mis cette jupe Gestuz pour aller me balader dans les jardins du Palais Royal avec mon ami Thomas.

La clé pour assumer ce genre de pièce (en tout cas pour moi, d'autres assument parfaitement le côté over the top), c'est la balance, d'où le tee-shirt et les sandales basiques, et le sac Céline.

Pour être honnête, je ne pense pas que je la porterai beaucoup, cette jupe, parce qu'en plus il n'y a pas non plus 20 façons de l'accessoiriser, mais je trouve qu'elle va finalement assez bien dans mon placard, au milieu de mes cinquante jeans et dix pulls noirs.

Vous l'aimez, vous, et vous pensez que je devrais la garder ?

  1. That's a beautiful look! I would keep the skirt..I think it could work really well with a plain white top and a black leather biker jacket...
    Really love the H Oran sandals, though!

    Have a great week, Lara THE DAINTY THINGS

  3. I always think that if you hesitate about keeping something, it means you should let it go. I mean the skirt is gorgeous, but if you're not sure about keeping it, it says everything :)

  4. Je pense sincèrement que si tu ne la portes pas, il vaudrait mieux la vendre, ça te ferait un peu plus de sous en plus! et une nana (ou mec sait-on jamais) qui serait contente! Mais ce n'est que mon avis :)
