Lavender and Sheer Dots

I've been pulling out items that I want to wear again - only a few weeks to go until I swap out for my fall/winter wardrobe. I'm putting this skirt to the test.
I think I've found it a new home - it was fun to play with (and buy twice after I cut a hole in the first one!), but I have another skirt that I like better, which will be making an appearance at some point soon.

  • Jacket - H&M, thrifted; first worn here just last week with pops of orange
  • Sweater top - Gap, consignment; first worn here in August with shiny pink brocade
  • Skirt - H&M, thrifted; last seen here in June for Shoes My Husband Hates
  • Shoes - Diesel, consignment; last worn here in April with lace and a pencil skirt

I neglected to take my own advice on my mental note last time I wore this and wear a longer half-slip underneath it. Strangely, it was fine this time around, probably because once again I have nylons on. But yeah, I'm finished with this skirt. It's all yours, Eryn!

However, I loved how it looked with this lavender jacket and these funky shoes.
Why haven't I worn these shoes since April? That's tragic!

The stuff:
Am I right? These are fabulous! That's not even a high heel.

Spiral and dot bling:
Another one of my "sets" of jewelry, all purchased separately.

  1. That is a beautiful skirt, but it's good you've go someone in mind it can go onto now you're had enough of it. It really does work so well with that blazer too! :)

    This outfit is making me thing I should pair some of my skirts with blazers, I think I kept a few of the style I'm thinking of! :)

    1. Yup, I like it but I don't love it, and I feel like I've gotten enough wear out of it. Skirt + blazers = awesome! Go for it, Mica!

  2. So long, skirt! I'm glad you have a better replacement in the wings. I love how the shoes look like the heels are higher than they really are - best magic. And autumn wardrobes, hard to believe, but I do love this weather. Remind me later that I wrote that!

    1. I do, a sheer skirt, with metallic dots, even! But swooshier! I bought those shoes in Vancouver on one of our trips over - I always think of you with any of my Van finds. I know, I love the cooler weather too.

  3. I put out some stuff to wear again and am ending up getting rid of most.
    Yes, I think you made the right decision to give this skirt a new home, specially if you already have a replacement and someone to give it to ;)

    1. Yeah, there is usually a reason why we don't wear those things!

  4. I actually love this outfit, love the sheer skirt with the short one underneath. You look incredibly stylishly chic. xx

  5. Such a fine farewell for this skirt! The short slip gives it a fab, flirty look and that prim jacket is the perfect foil. You've given this skirt a great showing and now it can go off to brighten up Eryn's life x
