Coral Overload

This is another skirt which I've wanted to wear for a while; it's from the Sears Outlet. Unfortunately, I don't remember the price - I should write these things down - it was probably about $7 since I don't like to pay more than $9 for a skirt.


I hadn't planned to wear a jacket, but it seemed like it might be cold and the only thing that matched was the one from the swanky lunch.


By fluke, I hauled out my French squares top and the colour went quite well and then I added the polka dot scarf.


I wasn't sure what with the jacket being so suit-like and the skirt being so floral and un-suit-like, but there were lots of colours and textures; here's a closeup:

The skirt is nice because it has flippy walking pleats in the front which add a bit of swing and swoosh.

And it is certainly visible; Big J said he could see me from the top of the escalator when he picked me up from the station.

  2. The sweater alone is perfect with the skirt.

  3. I agree with Patti and Terri. I love this summery look and your pattern-mixing. Today was warm then cool then warm then cool, so this outfit with the jacket was the perfect choice.

    1. Hey Melanie: Don't you hate it when our weather changes? At least this time I wore summery colours - usually its mostly black and then it's the "crow trudging home in bright sunlight" look.

    1. Hey Sheila! It's a fun scarf - sort of balloony, and goes with a lot of stuff
