Remember a little while ago I told you about how I had made a Briar top / Axel skirt matching set from some gorgeous marble print scuba from Mood Fabrics, but hadn’t worn them together as a set yet?
Well my friends – i finally wore them together – and as Chris and I were about to walk out the door to go to dinner, Bunny said ” wow Mum! Those are SUCH nice pajamas”.
YUP. You can always count on kids for a good dose of brutal honesty. Needless to say I turned around and got changed :)
So as much as I absolutely adore both of these pieces separately, I think I’m happy to admit that they aren’t as amazing together as I imagined they would be. I n my head this was going to be a seriously EPIC outfit, and in reality isn’t particularly inspiring. Which is fine, because as someone who lives in separates I know they will get more wear as separates than a matching set anyway.
I guess that’s the key to making a matching set – you always want to make sure that you are happy to wear both pieces on their own! What do you think about matching sets? Should i give up the “perfect matching set” dream?
