Every closet has at least ONE of those “Yeah…I really own that” pieces.
Remember when I shared with you my Yeah…I Really Own That piece and featured my Miley Cyrus Playsuit?
Just for a refresher: What is a “Yeah…I really own that” piece you might ask? It is a piece of clothing that you purchased at some point in time and are not really sure why. At the time of purchase it seemed like a great idea, but eventually you forget all of the reasons why/how it made its way into your closet and are left with only feelings of buyer’s remorse or embarrassment. You would think these would be the first things to go when you have a major closet purge, but for some reason or another you just can’t let them go.
I recently decided that each month, I will invite one of my favorite bloggers to guest blog and share a”Yeah…I Really Own That” piece on Twenties Girl Style. Yay!
So, let me introduce my first “Yeah…I Really Own That” Guest Blogger for November…
Sarah from Caring Cowls!
I have always loved dolphins. So much so, I have had my same stuffed animal “Dolphie” (who squeaks!) since I was two years old. Dolphie and I have such a strong connection that I actually threatened to stay in Mexico when I left him in a cab during a family vacation. Thankfully, my dad went on a rescue mission across Cozumel and saved him right before we needed to board our flight home. Obviously, I have an impenetrable connection to my Dolphie, and by connection, dolphins.
A couple years ago I was out shopping with one of my besties, Ashley (Twenties Girl Style blogger), and we saw these dolphin shirts at Old Navy. Without trying them on or giving them a second look, we both purchased one. I am sad to report that this shirt is not of the best quality. It is very see-through and has an odd shape which can make it extremely unflattering. I think I have worn this shirt twice (including this outfit) yet I am unable to let it go due to the “dolphin connection”.
In an attempt to actually make this shirt wearable, I paired it with some skinny jeans, a jersey blazer, and some boots. Due to the colder weather I accessorized with a soft yellow Caring Cowl (of course) and a freshwater pearl ring. I finally found a way to make my childish shirt presentable in the adult world.
