A Notes about Moving Skirts from Summer to Fall
I’d like to take moment to chat about bringing skirts into Fall. I was having a conversation with a (very fashionable) coworker of mine, about how strange it felt/looked to throw on skirts & tights – and how when we got dressed in the morning, we’d always end up changing back into pants. We discussed having an anything-but-pants day during the week to force ourselves to get out of the habit. It’s just when you’ve got bare-legged in skirts all summer, then start pairing them with dark tights – the contrast in style seems a bit uncomfortable (especially if the skirt isn’t a dark color).

What I’m Wearing
I’m not sure what I should call the highlight of this outfit – every piece is my favorite. The statement necklace was a birthday gift from my sister – it’s the J.Crew Archipelago necklace (sold out, but similar here) – and the colors in the necklace inspired me to stick to strictly black & white for the rest of my outfit. My top is an amazing thrift shop find (Hey Macklemore, can we go thrift shopping? Yup, yup, yup, yup) and I call it my typewriter button-down, because it’s got random letters along with faded black stripes. The skirt is courtesy of SimplyBe – it’s a faux leather skirt with a perfectly placed pleat to add only the flattering curves to your figure (and hide away the others…).
