Wardrobe Workhorse: White Skirt

White skirts: wardrobe workhorses

1 // 2 (on sale) // 3 // 4 (under $25!) // 5 // 6 (on sale)

Remember when we used to do a Wardrobe Workhorse feature once in a while? Those were good times. Let’s do that again. I noticed the other day when I was tidying my closet that I have 3 white skirts. Seems crazy, right? Why would someone want to cover the thing she sits on with a color that is scientifically proven (not really) to be a magnet for stains? I don’t know. But I do know I’ve worn 2 of those 3 skirts on countless occasions and, surprisingly, I haven’t ruined them! I think the key is to pick skirts that are (a) textured, (b) slightly off-white, or (c) both. They’re a little less intimidating than a sleek, stark white number, and less likely to show little bits of everyday dirt. Above are a few options that I think would fit the bill for anyone who’s looking to buy!

Need convincing? Here are just a few of the ways I’ve worn my white skirts and why I think they’re wardrobe workhorses.

They work for every season…

Camo…Not That Kind of Camo

Since I started this blog (it will be a year at the end of this month – eek!), I’ve gotten even more adventurous with fashion, and I love it. But one thing I’ve never liked and will never like…is camo print. Even when some of my favorite bloggers like Jessica and Rachel wear it, I can’t quite get on board. It’s just not me.

But what I will do is wear a peach belt over a (partly) peach shirt so the belt – gasp! – disappears. Ooooh! Aaaah! Whoa, where’d the belt go? I can’t see it. It’s like it’s camouflaged! That’s my kind of camo.
