This skirt is such a fall back for me.
top – people tree
skirt and belt – charity shop
shoes – keds
necklace – present from my mum when I graduated (high) school
Amazingly, that is only the second time I have ever worn this skirt. I swapped it ages ago, and i love it, but I really don’t have many pink clothes, or brown, or white so it’s difficult to match and all i can think of is red and yellow. I just can’t let go of the matching thing…
The pins/badges are all part of my birthday present from my sister. She gave me a sort of teatowel thing with lots of pins on – like this. it says American Girl Grin pins – is that something anyone has heard of? According to the wiki toy site they were discontinued during the 90s. I think it may have something to do with a type of doll called American girl? There’s lots with positive sayings like ‘way to go! and ‘stand tall’ and also sport based ones like ‘I heart hokey’. They seem to me like the kind of thing a teacher might give their kids. Are there any teachers out there who would want these more motivational ones? I’d be happy to pass them on, since I am unlikely to wear them myself. Email me if you want them!
But there were also some fun ones with just drawings on, plus my sister added loads of other ones, like the big Janosch tiger duck one I’m wearing.
