A whole bunch of my favorite things are on sale…
Ah, Fall! I’m already feeling your pressure on my wardrobe. Which is inconvenient since it’s actually summer here in San Francisco. At least I can count on it always being suitably cold here at night for my thick sweaters. Here’s a request from Sharmyn:
Here is my dilemma. My husband bought me a beautiful skirt from Anthropologie a few months ago. It is an ivory toile with pintucks at the top and battenburg lace insets. It also has a slight bustle in the back with a ribbon. It is sort of like this Blanca skirt but more formal and very feminine.I really, really love it and want to wear it but I just can’t figure out what kind of top to put with it. Tucked, untucked, blousy, tailored, jacket, twin set I would love to see what kind of things you come up with. My only stipulations are that I can’t wear sleeveless or a plunging neckline.
The key to wearing a fuller skirt is to have something a little tighter and shorter on top. Belted jackets, turtlenecks, sweaters, really a ton of things can work. Here’s one option for fall:
Skirt – Why does this Anthropologie link work but no others? I’ve probably just jinxed it.
Sweater – LOVE this. Want to marry it and wear it every day.
Boots – Nice little boots that don’t cost a fortune.
Bag – From Forever21 believe it or not.
Headband – Tortoise is just right with this combo.
Bracelet – I have a version of this! Very delicate.
So cute! I love this outfit and hopefully so will Sharmyn.
