Disclaimer: When it comes to being a fashion blogger in Wisconsin, there is one thing that is ALWAYS an obstacle: the weather! Sometimes it's just too darn cold to shoot outside, but you need to find somewhere fun and creative.

So when you ask, "Why in a laundromat?" I'll say, "Why not!" 

Now about this epic outfit! This gold skirt is actually a vintage find that I have had in my closet for years. Not a bad find for $5, but I couldn't find the perfect outfit for it. So there it sat in my closet, waiting to be worn.

Then the morning of my shoot, I came across it hanging there and I was determined to rock a bad ass outfit with it. Wanting to dress it down, I unexpectedly paired it with this cozy cropped sweater and bright red booties to add some dimension to the look. Sometimes the most random combinations create the most stylish outfits.

Remember: Fashion is about having fun and taking risks. So find that item in your closet that you are waiting to rock at the perfect event, shoes or moment and find a way to wear it now! 

Skirt: vintage 

Sweater: Scotch & Soda 

Booties: Shoes of Prey
