Today I read a post on Where Did You Get That, explaining 4 different ways to wear/tie a structured blouse for Spring (you should check it out)! It left me feeling inspired, to do something different today. And at first I was trying to re-create her styles, but realized that wasn’t different! So I took my shirt styling in a different direction…and this is what I came up with. I wrapped my oversized gingham check shirt around my waist, creating a Gingham Check Skirt for Spring!
I am really happy with this styling trick discovery…that my shirt could double as two items! Especially since I have been debating purchasing a gingham check skirt and NOW I HAVE ONE! Clothing can be so versatile if you just give it a chance and play around. Sometimes I forget that style is fun, not about keeping up with the Jones’s, but about trying new things.
So the next time you’re feeling bored, or don’t know what to wear…picture an old piece in a new, different way! Try your shirts as skirts…but remember to be YOU! Don’t copy someone else because you think you should. Take inspiration from others and create your own version.

This season Pimkie is carrying a lot of Feminism graphic tees, with powerful messages. I’m obviously a fan (link above)! Unfortunately the brand is only available in a few European countries, but Feminist Apparel (US site) sells a lot of great stuff as well…It’s fun wearing clothes with a positive message.
