bright and happy and pockets

anthropologie skirt with pockets

probably no one other than my siblings and i have seen this 1993 version of the secret garden, but there’s a part in it that we always laugh about. the little girl is choosing what to wear for the day and the house maid says “what do you want to wear, black, black, or black?”

sometimes i feel like my wardrobe can start to look like this! lots of black, white, gray, neutrals. nothing wrong with that! but there’s something about when i step out of my comfort zone and go for bright colors that just makes me super happy.

this skirt instantly drew me in when i saw it, not only because it’s just that – bright and happy – but it has POCKETS. that one little word gets me every time.

the nice thing about this skirt too is that there are SO many colors it’s really versatile and easy to pair with a shirt or some fun shoes. you really could go so many directions … yellow, bright blue, soft blue, green, pink. obviously i chose pink! and mint. sometimes i’m so predictable.
