One Skirt, Three Ways

April 8, 2014 — This post could also be called How to Wear a Winter Skirt in the Spring.

When I inherited the skirt from my last post, it was a knee length and about two sizes too big. Feeling inspired by the below looks (preppy-mod-meets-nineties), I decided to invest in having it tailored.

My skirt is made of a thick tweed with silk lining, and whenever lining is involved, alterations get more expensive. In this case, it was $40ish. The first look is an unbuttoned version of my last post’s outfit.

I mean, if there are pearls in the picture, don’t I have to do some sort of pose with them? It feels awkward … yet… I can’t fight it.

The thickness of the skirt also meant that it was made to be worn in the winter, but I wanted a little more bang for my buck. Here’s a springish look:

The pops of pink are hard to tell, namely the necklace and lips. If you’ve been following my fashion posts, you’ll know a magenta clutch and pumps are on my wish list, which I think would be very fun additions to this outfit. And magenta nails. The necklace, bracelets, and shoes also incorporate a bold gold, which is also sort of hard to see. Use your imagination!

Next, the Clueless-inspired look:

  1. I like the one with the vest the best! And…I am jealous of your bare legs/arms. It was 37 degrees when I left for work this morning.
