One of the things that the Spring Sun tends to do is make us (girls – perhaps also boys?) look into our wardrobes and exclaim: “I have nothing to wear!”
I’m having a little bit of a difficulty convincing myself about the truth in that this year though; as I was in a major shopping frenzy all last year (after losing weight) and it seems that what I bought then still fits. (Which is in itself, of course, a good thing.)
However, I think found a shopping loophole (or two). 1/ There may be things that I looked for last year but could not find (and if bought other things instead, those, according to the laws of shopping excuses, do not count); and 2/ there are of course always things that one has to buy simply because if one doesn’t, who knows if they will still be there in the right size if one happens to realise later that one needs them after all.
Like, for example, a skirt with lots of pockets.
I love pockets. I do of course have items in my wardrobe without pockets as well; but I tend to end up not wearing those much, simply because it’s so much more practical most of the time to wear something with pockets.
So when I happened to lay eyes on this skirt, I simply could not resist it. Because… you-already-know…
Lots of pocketses for all my Preciousss Treasures…
The fabric is 100% cotton, thin and unlined, so it’s a casual summer skirt for warm weather. It will be a while yet before that’s the right item to wear here. But… (I already explained!)
Photos put through some various Picasa filters to show off the pockets and seams better. (It strikes me that this could be another take on the FMTSO theme “shapes”…)
