How to Wear DIY: Simple gathered stripe skirt made edgy
I made this brown and black striped gathered skirt last fall, and I knew it was an unconventional length. It's nice to have something longer than a flippy miniskirt, but easier to walk in than a maxi, but it's been a little tricky to wear without feeling dumpy. I've worn it to work before with something structured on top, but last weekend I wore it to the farmer's market and a date with a friend, in a little more casual/edgy way.
As I said last weekend, we picked up our last CSA box of the year. It's been so wonderful to have a big plastic tub of local, organic veggies waiting for us at the market every Saturday, all for an amazing price we paid months ago. I never thought we'd be able to afford such quality food on our budget, but I'm so glad we found our CSA this year and it was so worth it!! We're signed up for a winter CSA that starts in January, but until then I don't know what we'll do! ;) I seriously have hardly bought anything at a store all summer. We've been mostly eating CSA veggies, our cow share, our half hog, the lamb we bought, and eggs we buy from a coworker who has chickens! It's been an amazing, nutrient-dense, local food summer!
So here I am wearing the skirt picking up our last veggie box!
Surrounded by gorgeous organic, local veggies!
It's great to wear the skirt somewhere other than work!
