It's All About the Skirt

I had originally intended to wear a navy blouse (this one) with this skirt and shoes, but changed to a plain white shirt at the last minute.
Because it's all about the skirt. And O! what a skirt, I think you will agree.

  • Shirt - Tommy Hilfiger, thrifted; last worn here in June with Shoes My Husband Hates
  • Skirt - Maeve, thrifted; last seen here in January with a triple flare
  • Shoes - Go Fresh, thrifted; last worn here in June with crackle and pink

I am not really a huge fan of a plain white shirt, but when it's well-fitted it can be an incredibly useful piece for really letting a special piece take centre stage.

This skirt is such an item. It's an Anthropologie brand that I found at the Patch last year for $16.95.
I "altered" it by pulling the waist in with safety pins - I am crafty like that, ha ha!

The stuff:
Oranges and navy - such a great combo. I love how comfy these shoes are!

Orange bling:
My WW group loved this outfit, and I felt like a million bucks. That's really what it's all about, isn't it?

  • Belt - vintage 80s, thrifted
  • Necklace - Banana Republic, consignment
  • Mis-matched earrings - don't remember
  • Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes


  1. That is such an awesome skirt - and while the navy would have been nice it it I'm really liking the white! Like you said it lets the skirt shine even more :)

    I love outfits like these - something you look and feel great in! Always makes me more ruthless with whatever I wear the next day though - if it doesn't feel as good to wear as the wonderful outfit before!

  2. Love, love, love this outfit Sheila! I agree that sometimes a simple white shirt does the outfit more justice than throwing another colour/pattern into the mix. My only other comment was that I had hoped to see your orange shoes as I scrolled down, but apart from that this is perfect! Have a wonderful weekend x

  3. Yes, that skirt is a star! Love the color combination. Happy Friday to you, xox


  4. What a fab skirt and the white shirt is perfect with it!

    Have a fab weekend!


  5. Fabulous outfit! I'm a huge fan of orange and navy together, too (ditto for grey and orange).

    Big hugs, happy weekend wishes, and many heartfelt thanks for your lovely b-day wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  6. How about a billion bucks ?
    I really like how this came together and think it was wise to throw in that white shirt.
    You look lovely in that first picture.

  7. lovely skirt and fabulous ensemble, I agree about White shirts, they're not a favorite of mine, but they're useful!. You look really gorgeous and love particularly how your necklace enhances that White shirt!

  8. Great outfit Sheila, and that skirt definitely deserves the spotlight!

  9. I love this skirt, Sheila - the whole outfit is fabulous on you. The sheer black overskirt with orange adds to the interest for me. (I looked at your January post and wow! what a useful skirt, again you've created a completely new outfit equally stunning.) I can't wear collars! They seem to "crush" me but you certainly don't look "crushed" in this white shirt! Thanks for sharing.
