Morning all! Remember my Nantucket Red skirt that I bought over the Summer? The one I pined for and the ultimately bit the bullet and ordered? Well it is back.
When I bought it, I assumed I would only wear it in the Summer, because it is a decidedly Summer skirt - the color, the length, the look ... it's all very Summery. In the Summer, I paired it with wedge sandals, a chambray top and a belt:
But as the seasons changed, I thought I might try to wear it in cooler weather too. So when Fall rolled around, I tried something new: I wore my tall flat riding boots, a tan ruffly cardigan and a light weight oatmeal colored cowl-neck shell underneath:
Now that it's Winter, I knew I could keep going. I have been lusting after Irish sweaters this season, but the wool versions are always too bulky on me. LL Bean happened to have a great sale on a cotton cable sweater that had the same look as a traditional wool Irish sweater. I snatched it up. I wore the new sweater with my skirt, along with my tall brown riding boots and brown tights. I grabbed a yellow and tan polka dotted scarf from my closet and some gold hoop earrings and ... voila!
I love the outfit and love love love that I can wear my skirt even though Summer is half a year away. I'm going to round out the year by figuring out a Spring look too! I've already got ideas swirling -- maybe pink, maybe turquoise, oooh the possibilities.
See you swoon,
