Eterna Primavera

How to Transition for Fall with a Plaid Skirt

You may thinking “hey Sarah, it’s September, why are you talking about spring and not fall?” Well first, I am firmly in the it’s-not-fall-til-it-feels-like-it camp (Philly has another heat wave going right now) and I just came back from my trip to Medellin, known as the city of the eternal spring. My mom says the city is way warmer now than it was when she was growing up, but it was nice to have sunshine without the humidity. I was even shivering at night!

I was spending too much time enjoying my trip to take outfit photos, so this was the only one that was snapped (on my mom’s phone, at that). This swingy, ’70s inspired skirt is proof that what goes around comes around in terms of fashion. My mom and I couldn’t remember when we bought it at Target, but it’s probably ~8 years old. Peasant skirts and similar styles went out of fashion for a bit, but I still held onto this one — the colors and the quality were too good. And what do you know? Similar looks are back in stores (I like this one from Old Navy).

Now that I’m reminiscing, I kind of wish we could skip ahead to spring. In the meantime, I’ll be rewearing and reworking this skirt come fall…whenever that gets here.
