Fall Skirt

If you saw my post from Monday, you may know I declared a spending freeze for myself (sigh).  However, I do still have a few purchases I made pre-freeze that I will be talking about in the coming weeks, & today's skirt is one of those items.  Of course I snagged it at Loft where it was on markdown, & I purchased during one of their 40% off sales (as I always do at this particular store).

I've already managed to wear this skirt twice...once for work & once over the weekend - proving that it can be worn dressed up or down. (I apologize in advance for my expressions in these pictures.  Having my photo taken isn't my favorite thing - funny I should start a fashion blog, eh?!)


Tee - Loft // Skirt - Loft // Shoes - Halogen via Nordstrom (no longer available online) // Jewelry - old


Jacket - American Eagle // Top - Old Navy // Skirt - Loft // Booties - Target (last season) // 
Necklace - Express


In an effort to get the most possible versatility out of this skirt, I wanted to show you all how many ways this skirt could be worn.  The skirt itself is what I would call a dark mustard & what might surprise you is how many other colors go well with it.

For example, of course, neutrals:

Or, for the more adventurous, think "jewel tones" - from burgundys & wines, to purples & fuschias, & even jades & teals:

The purpose of me showing you these ideas is not for you to run out & buy this skirt (of course, you can if you want, or maybe you already have it), but I wanted to demonstrate that you can wear pieces multiple ways - sometimes you just have to pillage through your closet for inspiration! Truly, the ideas I have for this one skirt keep flowing through my head, so I'll be sure to document each time I wear it & perhaps do a follow-up post down the road :-)

  1. Oh wow, I love your outfits, especially the second one! I don't know why I wouldn't have thought to pair that skirt with black but it looks really cool with the black graphic tee and booties! It toughens up the whole look more than I would have thought possible for that type of skirt. And as usual, you have such great vision and imagination for putting together all of the other possibilities! I also love your jewelry in the first outfit - too bad it's old! LOL

  2. That print is gorgeous! As you have shown, this will be such a wearable item. I love your shoes in the first look! I have a couple of nice pencil skirts and I wear them all the time. Great investment piece.

  5. I have had my eye on this skirt since it came out. And, the local weather girl had it on a few weeks ago (like Gina, I notice people on TV in chain store clothing - ha ha). I love, love it with the gray but I also love it with the jewel tones. I wonder if they still have it at my local store....

  6. What a gorgeous skirt Kellie. Love both outfits you are wearing and both pairs of booties. I like the first outfit slightly more because it feels so fresh, clean and polished. Girly but yet edgy. Looking fab!!

    P.S. From Oct 22 through Oct 31 I am running a link-up every day on my blog. It is about wearing Pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. I’d love for you to join it. Thanks. =)


    Happy Monday!
