Instant Gratification






Sweater-J.Crew, thrifted and DIYed (similar, gray) | Skirt-F21 (similar, similar) | Shoes-Payless (similar, similar) | Bag-Kate Spade (similarsimilar) | Watch-Michael Kors (similar, similar)

So of course the day after I finished my jeweled collar sweater I had to wear it. When I was younger I always loved wearing new purchases immediately. Instant gratification. Who knows what changed, but sometimes saving new items for an off day is more fun. It could be a bad morning or an upcoming stressful day at work, but pulling out a new item to wear then can be a little bit of extra happiness. Now if I've DIYed something all bets are off! This green floral skirt sets off the jeweled collar so well as opposed to a boring plain ole one!

  4. I always have to wash my new items first. I'm weird about it, so I have to be patient. Which is really not my bag at all!

  9. I have always put new things away for special events. But the older I get, the more I realize that every day is special! Thanks for the reminder!! Susan

  10. The skirt is gorgeous with the sweater - I love green and black. Some purchases I want to wear right away, others I save, usually if I feel like I want the first wear to be 'special', which is silly, but I do it all the same.

  14. I'm weirdly the opposite. When I have something new I feel like I have to save it for a special day. I know I'm weird.

  15. Yeah... I used to hold certain clothes for special occasions but now I'm over it and feel like everything is a special occasion!

  16. I usually hold things for awhile because I'm afraid if I wear it on a random day and mess it up, I won't have it for the next special occasion I'll wish I had saved it for!

  21. I am all about instant gratification when it comes to new clothes! If I don't wear it within a few weeks, I start to think I don't like it that much and should return it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think if I were to do a DIY project myself, I'd wear it the moment I were done with it! This is a really great outfit!!

  23. Love this skirt! I wanted it last year from Forever21, but never ended up buying it. I'm the same way with instant gratification, although many of my fall purchases will have to wait because it is too hot here!

  26. It turned out so well!! Best part is, you don't even have to wear a necklace. It makes life just that much easier, and exciting because - new clothes! The black makes your skirt's vibrant green just pop.
