wear more skirts

Jun 6, 2007 | Life in Progress

on the walls of my favorite portland boutique (and where i bought my wedding dress), are big steel letters that spell out the phrase “wear more dresses.” i couldn’t say it better. somewhere along the line, i fell in love with skirts. even in rainy portland i wore skirts all the time, with boots, with tights, over jeans. but lately, here in california where the weather practically begs me to wear skirts, i’ve been wearing far too many jeans.

this past week, however, i’ve been feeling the whisper to get my girly skirts out of the closet and into the sunshine. and wouldn’t you know that i just happened into anthropologie (the equivalent of my soulmate/store) today where they are having the most spectacular sale on..you guessed it…skirts!!! i think i twirled in 15 different skirts in the dressing room before deciding on these three. my skirt loving spirit is back.

and wouldn’t you know that the universe brought us a very optimistic apartment possibilities this week! we weren’t even looking for a new place but now here we are, hoping, hoping, hoping for this possibility to work out. it would be a dream.

it’s been a good, good day. new skirts, a massage, some window browsing, tea in hand. and little bit of work, too. speaking of work, this recently sold original is now available in a print.

Sending much love,

    Love them! It’s hard to wear skirts in Afghanistan unless you wear trousers underneath, so I got my skirts and sundresses on the moment I arrived in Bangkok yesterday. I feel so summery, girly and pretty!

    I especially love the yellow floral print with your fabulous yellow shoes.

    I am with you on the skirts! I love them, too – and I get so frustrated when I don’t wear them!

    I love the new prints also–I’m all about “trust” and “believe”-ing. And, I hope the apartment works out.

    If I could I would wear a skirt everyday, but it’s near winter here with rain, frost and fog most days, way too cold to even think about a skirt. I so envy you with your sunshine….

    Big hugs,
    Love Toni
