Skirting Around


I have owned this skirt for years.  It's one of those pieces that goes with just about everything, is flattering & a perfect way to stay cool while still looking pulled-together & feminine.  I love how the fullness is balanced by the high, fitted waistline ~ and the pockets only increase the comfortability. 

{These photos were shot at a historical building in the town where we live.  It was actually the first high school in the village & was built in 1911.}




What I'm wearing:
Dorothy Perkins top, Zara skirt, Merona belt, BCBG sandals, Vintage necklace, Bracelets: Banana Republic & Forever 21

There is something very comforting about bringing out that favourite and much loved item, again and again, of wearing. I think this skirt is one of those items that will never "go out of fashion" but simply because you love to wear it. This is a very pretty look indeed :)

The skirt is pretty, I like the waist. What type of fabric is it?

love that top!

Kimberly said...

Tracy, the skirt is a linen blend (which is why it wrinkles so easily) and has a chambray look to it.
