What I Wore: Red Wool

I refer to this skirt as the Christmas Skirt. Let me tell you why. For the past three years, when December rolled around and I needed something festive (red), warm (wool), and classy (pencil) to wear to a function, I pull this beautiful baby out. Then I put it away until Christmas comes again. What a sad life for such a pretty vintage skirt!

So when the warm breeze inspired me to shave my legs and put on something girly, I dug to the back of my closet and pulled it out. Why not wear it? In a few months just the thought of wool touching my body will cause sweating. So wear it in March, I have.
Even though the skirt is high-waisted, I left my shirt untucked. I wasn't feeling the need to be that girly. I paired it with some of my favorite go-to clothes. I LOVE that shirt. And those shoes. It probably would have been cute with some fun tights, but hey, I didn't do that either...

Navy polka dot shirt - thrifted
Owl necklace - American Eagle
Red pencil skirt - thrifted
lacey shoes - BC footwear

Note my face in this last pic - it's the face of concern. The one I make when I think about how ungrippy my shoes are and then have a terrible mental picture of me tumbling down a cement hill in a pencil skirt. Yikes.

  2. Love this look! That owl necklace is beyond adorable :D
