today i bought… h&m pleated neoprene skirt

H&M pleated neoprene skirt /

I've been trying to buy a black neoprene skirt for quite some time now, but I keep changing my mind. I buy one, I try it on, I take it back, and so the cycle continues. There's something about skirts in general with me: unless they're leather I inevitably find them too girly. But neoprene seems like a good alternative: sporty and really not too feminine. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I bought a neoprene skirt from Whistles recently, but I just couldn't deal with the "flippiness" of it (definitely not a word, but you know what I mean). Then the other day when I was in H&M I spotted this beauty in the trend section. Now don't get me wrong: I love it. I gravitated straight towards it and scoured two branches for my size. But this time the problem isn't that it's too girly, rather that it's a little bit too "out there". I mean, it is not a skirt for a shrinking violet. It's a skirt that announces its presence with a shout rather than a whisper. And although I definitely don't think of myself as being afraid to wear something that I like, I have to admit wearing a skirt that's as "crazy" as this makes me feel a little apprehensive, especially since I don't work in fashion anymore (rather the not-so-used-to-crazy-skirts-world of IT). So what do you think? Wear something that's totally out of my comfort zone? Keep it but only bring it out at weekends? Or return it and let the search continue? Maybe I should just stick to jeans after all…
