Dear Fan Skirt, Until We Meet Again
As I’m writing this post, I’m also crossing my fingers and toes hoping I get to wear this outfit again in the near future. All but one lonely suitcase was packed up when we left Sydney and shipped via a moving company…with the disclaimer that it could be up to 6 months before I see any of it again because customs in Argentina inspects each thing by hand that comes in….among several issues with importing goods and our visas. (Eeek.) And this here skirt and shoes were part of that shipment.
If you’ve been following my blog for a bit, you’ve probably noticed I wear these wedges and this skirt A LOT. My thought behind shipping them versus putting them in my one lonely suitcase was to encourage myself to wear things in my closet I haven’t worn in awhile. But I’m already starting to regret this decision. I really, really miss this fan skirt and these comfy wedges! This fan skirt is just so well-made and cute, plus it’s good for twirling (pictured here, it was too windy the day I wore it here for twirling). I always feel put together when I wear it, and it’s surprisingly versatile. (I never would’ve thought a novelty print could get so much use!) Hopefully, we will meet again soon!
However, I did pack my fun Betsey Johnson bag in my one sacred suitcase! I haven’t had it long enough to get a proper amount of use out of it yet. My mom-in-law had gotten it for me for Christmas. (Pretty cool gift, right?) And every time I use it I feel the need to pretend I’m taking photos with it, haha. So, prepare yourself, this is one of only two of my novelty bags that successfully made it into Argentina so far. So you’ll be seeing a lot more of me fake taking photos, haha.

Oh man! Six months? Crazy! I take it you’re not expecting to be relocated within that time frame? I agree, this skirt is super versatile (more than the red one I think). My only complaint about it, and we’ve discussed this, is the ironing!! Ugh. Well, I’m glad you got another good photoset out of this skirt and I’m sure it’ll be an awesome reunion when it shows up again! XO
Ha! That’s the fun part…there’s always the chance we could be relocated within that timeframe. Ick! But hopefully, it will all work out. 🙂 Ugh yes, the ironing!! I’ve gotten to the point of just washing it and hanging it up after I wear it. I’m so over trying to iron it. Haha.
You look lovely in this green fan skirt. I am a huge fan of this green color on you and your shoes are reminiscent of Chanel style. I really like these shoes! This is such a classy look Lindsey and definitely one of my favorite looks on you.
Aw, thank you, Joanna!
Oh, my! I hope your clothes arrive safely! I don’t think I could live without any of my clothes for six months, especially not my shoes with my finicky feet! Love your skirt and purse! 🙂
Thank you so much, Laurie! Oh yes, that would not be fun!
What a lovely skirt, the green shade is just stunning!
Thank you, Marta! 🙂
Hi Lindsey, I hope your favorite skirt will arrive to Argentina safe and sound. I can imagine how hard it had to be. There are several things in my closet that I would miss as well: my handbags, several dresses and favorite boots. I hope you arrived to Argentina safely. Let us know how you like the country.
Hi Miri, Thank you! We just arrived in Argentina! So far so good. 🙂 Although, it has been raining quite a lot. So, not too much exploring happening at the moment.
I think that’s a smart way to try to wear some of your clothes more, Lindsey! Or….it could be a great excuse to go shopping!! Now that’s my kind of rationale!!
Haha! I like the way you think, Jodie! Thank you! 😉
