Letting go of a skirt

It seems such a simple thing. A skirt. Sitting in my UFO cupboard. It doesn't need much done. Just the worn existing elastic taken out and new elastic threaded through. Not a hard or time consuming job. But it's still sitting there. And has been for about 2 months now.
The hard thing, is I was given the skirt. A friend moved away, and kept it aside as she thought I'd like it, seeing as how I wear skirts over 50% of the time. Skirts in a very similar style to that. But this skirt, while in a nice colour and design, is a colour I'm trying to get out of my wardrobe. It's a brown. Don't get me wrong, I like brown. But I prefer black and jewel tones. I think they work for me, it's something I keep meaning to find out, but it's what I gravitate to. Browns mean finding autumnal hues to wear with them, something I don't have much of at all in my wardrobe. I don't want clothing that I have to find other things to wear with it, or is really limited in what I can wear with it. For 'occasional' clothing, sure. But not for something that is of my everyday style.
But it got given to me, was picked out for me. Which adds a whole new element to getting rid of it, an emotional one.
It needs to go.
Because it doesn't fit with my overall view for my wardrobe, and it doesn't fill a gap that I haven't found the right item for.
So out it goes.

Such a simple thing, yet so hard at the same time.
