It’s time to show your skirt!
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The GoodBuy/Good-Bye Book: skirts
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
This brightly colored striped midi skirt is probably not the best buy in my closet. I snagged it a few years ago on super duper clearance from Cato Fashions in an attempt to add some more vibrant colors to my wardrobe. I wore it twice on the blog for different posts but never wore it other than that. It is just not me and I don’t feel very comfortable in it. If I saw it on someone else, I would love it. But it simply is not my style. Once I get ‘round to cleaning out my closet, I will probably say good-bye to this skirt.

This skirt was a Good Buy. Then I washed it. Now it’s a Good Bye.
Here is Michele of seechele_styles
This black denim skirt a definite Good Buy from Loft can do so much with it.
Jodie of @jtouchofstyle
Technically it’s not a good buy in that I made it…ha ha. But I did buy the yarn!!! And I love it with my OTK boots. It’s the perfect reason to wear shorter skirts!!

This lovely semi transparent skirt was one of my favorites, but it is a small size and I had to give it away, 24 pounds didn’t fit!
After the mini Punk skirt I wanted a more decent one, so I bought a skirt that had a longer fit. More me, more skirt…
And finally my skirt
This was one of my favorite skirts, but it is to small now, I had it for years. But I bought a new denim pencil skirt! Soon on the blog!
May’s theme will be: Polk Dots!
Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org
By joining The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book, you agree to receive a monthly reminder email for next month!
I would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!
This was fun, I loved seeing all the skirts and can’t wait to see your new denim one!
Thanks Kellyann, it is such a good one!
Some great skirts!
I had way more skirts on my blog than I thought I did! It was fun going back through to find ones to feature here. Now I can’t wait for polka dots!
That is a bit more challenging for me then skirts!
These are all lovely skirts! I’ve done the wrong washing cycle and ruined clothes before, it’s the worst feeling!
Hope you are having a nice start to your week! It’s another busy one here!
The weekday wear linkup is live on my blog, I’d love you to join! 🙂
Away From The Blue
It can be a club! Haha! Thanks Mica, have a great week!
I’m glad I’m not the only one that washes and shrinks her stuff!! Thanks for the fun post!
Haha, thanks for joining!
You have encouraged me to buy and wear knee length skirts for every day again. Just purchased two denim skirts and am enjoying the look. Thanks.
Oh that is so nice to hear! Have fun wearing them!
I’m loving that denim pencil skirt. Such a shame it’s too small now. Can’t wait to see your new one! I’ve been looking for a decent denim skirt for a long time, but it’s got to be just so, I’m very particular 😉 xxx
And that makes you unique!
Oh oooooh, what a Bummer for Nicole! I lovend that Pink skirt.
And we all look stunning in skirts!
Yes it is, but it did make a fun photo! Sorry Nicole! lol
Skirts are tricky for me sometimes. All of these are lovely!
You always wear a pencil skirt with such style. I am looking forward to seeing the denim skirt on the blog.
Jodie’s skirt it’s fabulous also and the striped midi skirt that Shelbee is wearing is beautiful.,
Thanks Elle! I don’t think there are many skirts that I don’t like!
I really like pencil skirts but feel so self conscious in them. No matter what size I buy, they wind up feeling restrictive and a little like a straight jacket around the hips. I have a new skirt coming from Loft Outlet that I hope will be a good buy. Keep your fingers crossed!
I will! Thanks Leslie!
Such fun skirts! I love these posts because I gives me a glimpse of the variety out there!
We love that you are with us on this one! Now go and find some polka dots girl!
Love wearing skirts in the warmer weather – them along with dresses too. Thanks for sharing on the #chicandstylish #linkup.
