Lessons on how to cinch a wrinkled skirt

Top and Belt: Gap Outlet
Skirt and Shoes: Thrifted
Necklace: Gift

I’ve been looking forward to this post since starting the 30 for 30 challenge, because it really highlights why I named this blog ‘in a cinch’.┬áThis skirt is one that I bought a year ago and hardly wore right off the bat because it was just a touch too big. Enter belt! By hiking up the skirt and cinching the belt tightly around my natural waist, my once-failed thrifted skirt turned into a skirt I wear all the time. And rightly so! The pockets are so dang cute!

This was also a supremely easy and fast outfit to put together. Simple skirt, tee, and belt? Check. A winner every time.

Today’s lesson: A little ironing never hurt anyone! Sheesh, I thought people didn’t really pay attention to wrinkly clothes (I know that I rarely notice wrinkled clothing), but seeing photos of how wrinkled my clothes were is a little embarrassing! Lesson LEARNED, my friends.
